An independent record label needed an urgent record sleeve printing for a hastily re-scheduled pre-release event for one of their up-and-coming bands. We received the initial enquiry on Wednesday morning and were asked to deliver the completed printed record sleeve album order to a London address by 4pm Friday (two days later).
There was also the small issue that no artwork had been prepared!
Well there is nothing that our print production team at Scanplus likes more than a challenge so armed with some copy, a logo and two pictures we set about producing a printed record sleeve in super-quick time!
Firstly our studio team created artwork by utilising our design software, and after just two stages of proof approval we received authorisation from the customer to proceed with the record sleeve printing on Wednesday afternoon.
The printed album sleeves were produced on our IGEN5 digital press during the night so that flat printed record sleeve sheets were available for punching out to shape, folding and gluing on our specialist inline record sleeve maker the next morning. The sleeves were duly finished and packed in cartons by the end of the day and our courier arrived at his destination before Noon on Friday to the delight of the recipient.
The band and management were so amazed with the speed and quality of the printed record sleeve that they sent us a bottle of bubbly and an autographed album to show their appreciation for our efforts.
We’ve still got the album!
