The Loop: Homewood’s E-News – Vol. 8 Issue 1
Project Profile: A Success Story Worth Telling

When your brand reaches new heights, the way you graphically convey the news should at least be commensurate with the echelon of success you’ve achieved. Such was the case as we proudly printed Waterford Bank’s 2018 annual report, a project headed internally by Homewood sales representative Dan Curson, which informed shareholders of the bank’s most profitable year in its eleven-year history. Designed by Communica, the 32-page report seamlessly blended sophistication with wow-factor, immediately letting readers with a vested interest know 2018 had a happy ending before they even turned the first page. Communica Graphic Designer Kelsey Badenhop shared: “When we set out to design the Waterford Bank annual report, we had a very specific vision in mind. Dan and the team at Homewood helped us bring that vision to life with elements like soft touch coating, the custom “Waterford Blue” metallic Ink and UV gloss varnish. The end result was an elegant, eye-catching report that our clients could not have loved more. From a process standpoint, we were grateful to have the team at Homewood working with our designer at press checks every step of the way to ensure a seamless transition from design to print.”


Homewood always welcomes the opportunity to partner with creatives like the team at Communica and leverage multiple capabilities in the production of upscale projects such as this. Congratulations once again to Waterford Bank on a phenomenal 2018!

Make a Binding Resolution

Homewood Press Binding Solutions BGSU BookletOutside of design − paper stock, special coatings and die cutting are popular ways to differentiate printed marketing elements, sales tools and literature. But, just a reminder, binding is another means to make your next piece pop. Depending on the method selected, it can add high-end, industrial or glamourous appeal − or even an air of strength and reliability. Ranging from post and screw hardware used in fan decks and custom booklets like the one shown here to inline square-edge binding for a cost-effective, perfect-bound look, Homewood offers a variety of binding techniques to complement your creativity and print production options. Consult with your Homewood representative or contact us directly to learn more.
