CanPrint wins the honour of producing the annual Anzac Day memorial poster for the Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA), with a boosted run length of 83,400 for the 2014 commemorations.  

The ACT-based division of OPUS Group tackled the project on the ten-colour Heidelberg XL105P it picked up in late 2012. CanPrint has handled work on the Anzac Day memorial poster for the past three years, with site operations manager Angus Murphy noting that the unit order has steadily grown each year.

“Of course it’s really great to be involved with the Anzac Day poster. There’s some increase in quantity too, which is very positive. We worked heavily with DVA in the lead-up. They had a couple of different artworks they were considering, and we worked with them to do sample prints, and some tests with folding, scoring and folding. We really put the extra effort in to make sure it was spot on,”.  “It’s us recognising the DVA has got a very wide audience that is still very much in touch with print.”  This year’s commemorative poster marks the past while also looking closer to home. It honours the men and women of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) completing their service in Afghanistan, continuing the Anzac spirit and legacy in modern times.  It comprises two images. Foreground is the memorial of the Bullecourt Digger, which stands in the Australian Memorial Park in France. The monument commemorates the 10,000 soldiers of the Australian Imperial Force killed or wounded on the Hindenburg Line of the Western Front in April and May 1917.  The background image depicts members of the ADF taking part in an Anzac Day commemoration in Tarin Kot, Afghanistan. Accompanying the two evocative images are four words recognising the importance of commemoration – honouring, remembering, thanking and renewing.  

As well as the memorial poster, which it completed in February, CanPrint has also taken on work on a special commemorative Gallipoli book for DVA.
According to Murphy, this second-edition of the exclusive 168-page memento had a limited run of just 2000 and was a four-colour job, also on the XL105P. The commemorative tome is rounded off, however, with a luxuriant Stardream cover with metallics, varnish, folded flaps and a flush trim, making it a keepsake to treasure.

Annual Report production is complete and it’s the perfect time to begin planning for 2013/14.

At CanPrint it has been a record breaking year in terms of quality and timeliness, with a 100% success rate for meeting tabling deadlines at Parliament House. Importantly, customer feedback on the quality of work has been excellent and we are delighted to have exceeded so many clients’ expectations during such a busy period.
It may seem hasty, but now is the right time to begin planning for the production of your 2013/14 Annual Report. CanPrint offers a complete package which includes graphic design, editing, indexing, print, tabling, distribution and production of accessible web versions.

We have put together the following guide to make planning your RFQ easy.

1. Graphic design and typesetting

Consider the look and feel of previous reports to see whether it is time for a style update or a complete new look. CanPrint’s design team can provide design concepts or talk through any ideas you may have.

2. Editing and indexing

A well edited and organised Annual Report not only enhances the reading experience but helps communicate your key messages. Our accredited editors and indexers are experienced in working with complex documents to achieve a professional end product.

3. Print specification

There are so many things to consider here and you may know exactly what you require, but a call or a face-to-face meeting with your CanPrint account manager may help clarify any issues and is all part of the comprehensive service we offer.

4. Tabling

As the Commonwealth’s supplier of choice for embargoed and mission critical jobs like Annual Reports and Treasury’s Budget, we have a unique level of knowledge and experience with tabling. In 2013 we successfully tabled 100% of our Annual Reports in full and on time. Please ask your CanPrint account manager to help you correctly schedule this crucial stage of production.

5. Web-ready versions

Producing accessible web versions of all documents tabled in Parliament is a mandatory requirement for all departments and agencies. CanPrint’s digital team will work with you to ensure that the electronic version fully meets the requirements and is identical to the printed version as a:

Portable Document Format (PDF) compatible with Adobe Reader version 7.0 and above, complete with bookmarks for all headings and sub-headings (heading levels 1 and 2), or
Hypertext Mark-up languages (HTML) version compatible with your web format.

6. Microsoft Word version In .docx format

CanPrint can provide this for all Microsoft Office Suite users who need to be able to access and use the information contained within the Annual Report after publishing.

The CanPrint team has a wealth of experience in producing Annual Reports in their various forms. Year on year we continue to increase the number of reports we supply because our clients trust us to table on time, we are secure and our quality of work and value for money are unbeatable.
