Print Craftsmanship: Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori's Statement of Performance Expectations

At Colourcraft, we take immense pride in providing premium printing services with the attention to detail our clients deserve. In 2021 (and again in 2022), working closely with Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori, the Māori Language Commission, we printed their Statement of Performance Expectations report.

This vital document sets out the goals and expectations of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori. As an organisation dedicated to promoting te Reo as a vibrant and evolving language, the commission entrusted us with the task of printing a visually stunning and durable printed copy of this significant report.

To create an engaging cover, we printed on a 300gsm Advance Laser stock and to enhance both the finish and durability, we applied a matt lamination to the cover creating a scuff-resistant soft-touch finish. Then we applied a spot gloss UV varnish, which created a glossy effect on elements of the covers graphics, adding depth and contrast to its design.

Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori's Statement of Performance Expectations is a testament to our commitment to delivering exceptional printing solutions that truly showcase the importance and impact of our clients' work. At Colourcraft, we hold our craftsmanship and attention to detail in high regard, and it is an absolute honour to have played a small part in this project, supporting Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori in their mission to strengthen New Zealand's national identity through the promotion and use of te Reo Māori.

Innovative Packaging Design: Helping the Buy New Zealand Made Campaign Make an Impact

We love working with clients who have a passion for making an impact, and the Buy New Zealand Made Campaign is no exception. When they approached us in 2022 with a unique problem, we were happy to take on the challenge.

Their goal was simple: to make a lasting impression on new businesses joining the campaign. Instead of just sending out a certificate (which we also print) in an envelope, they wanted something special, something that would showcase the certificate and other New Zealand-made goodies in a durable and attractive way.

We got to work and designed a custom carton that could withstand the rigours of the courier network. Which used a sturdy 1.5mm thick white e-flute board and included an insert to hold the certificate frame securely in place. We also created a cavity below the frame to hold other promotional items, making the carton a perfect showcase for all things New Zealand-made.

Then we designed a certificate frame that was made entirely from unprinted card, precisely sized to hold the certificate without any glue. The frame was cut from premium 350gsm white carton board, and we included a hole on the back for easy hanging on the wall. To add an extra touch of elegance, we created a silver foiled self-adhesive label to brand the carton and seal it closed during transit.

The Buy New Zealand Made Campaign was thrilled with the concept, and we produced the first 200 units in October 2022. We're proud to have been a part of this project and to have helped the campaign make a lasting impact on businesses joining the campaign.

Exquisite Compliments: Printing Underlena's Striking Compliment Slips

At Colourcraft, we understand that businesses need to leave a lasting impression on their clientele. So when Maxine from Underlena, the renowned Wellington-based lingerie brand, entrusted us with the task of producing compliment slips that reflected their brand's quality, we had the opportunity to produce something remarkable.

We printed the supplied design on a matt 350gsm offset stock in colour on both sides, Then to add emphasis to the Underlena logo we applied a UV gloss varnish. This technique draws attention and creates a delightful contrast between the gloss logo and the matt card background.

At Colourcraft, we take great pride in delivering projects that reflect the commitment and quality our clients' pour into their own brands, and we hope that the work we produce leaves a lasting impression.

Capturing the essence of elegant design: Issue 1 of the Emma Brown Design Journal

At Colourcraft, we have had the pleasure of collaborating with numerous talented designers and creative businesses. One such project that stands out is Issue 1 of the Emma Brown Design Journal, a printed journal that embodies the essence of elegant architectural and interior design.

The graphic design for the journal was expertly crafted by the Jemma Cheer Design Company. Printed on a 150gsm Advanced Laser paper, the journal measured 192 x 297mm, providing ample space for Emma Brown Design to showcase its portfolio.

The journal's cover, undersized at A5, was gold foiled on black stock, by Windmill Press. This attention to detail set the tone for what lay inside the journal.

Within its 40 pages, the Design Journal took readers on a journey through the studio's notable projects and design philosophies. Four transparent pages featuring text overlays were printed onto translucent paper, beautifully overlaying the stunning photography of Emma Brown's interior design work.

The journal also included an undersized insert, printed on a charming 135gsm pink stock. This insert served as a gateway to discover more about Emma Brown Design, providing additional information about their studio, team, and the values that drive their creative process.

In this project, we took pride in collaborating with the Jemma Cheer Design studio and Windmill Press to bring Emma Brown Design's vision to life. The Emma Brown Design Journal stands as a testament to our dedication to delivering quality printing services that elevate and showcase the outstanding work of our clients.

Crafted with Precision: Floating Rock's Premium Business Cards

At Colourcraft, we take pride in delivering premium service and exceptional quality in every project we undertake. One of our recent endeavours was working with Floating Rock, a boutique animation studio based in Wellington, Aotearoa, known for its high-quality animated cinematic experiences and slick visual effects.

For their business cards, we were supplied with a design that reflects the studio's creativity and professionalism and were asked to print a set of business cards that would leave a lasting impression.

Once the cards were printed to enhance durability, we applied a scuff-resistant matt lamination on both sides of the cards, providing a soft touch finish and ensuring they would stand up well over time. On one side, we incorporated the Floating Rock logo using a blind spot UV gloss varnish. This technique created a glossy effect that contracts with the matt laminated background.

On the reverse side of the business cards, we applied a hot stamp foiling with blue metallic foil to embellish the founder's name and the floating rock icon. The reflective metallic blue brought a touch of class, adding depth to the design and which contracted against the smooth matt laminated surface of the card.

By combining these premium finishes and attention to detail, we crafted business cards that truly represented the professionalism and quality of Floating Rock Studio.

The pages featured ruled lines and space at the top for the date and subject, printed in crisp black throughout.

Creating a Custom Carton for Wicked Wanda's Hot BBQ Sauce Trio

In the final days of 2022, Laurel Hill Foods approached us to produce 300 gift pack cartons for their delicious Wicked Wanda hot BBQ sauce range from Hawkes Bay.

We took on the challenge and developed a carton structure that not only showcases the product but also included a locking lid and integrated handle. The windows cut into the carton allow the branding and labelling of the product to always be on display.

To ensure the quality of the final product, we first created a blank mockup to test the form and function of the carton. We then positioned the supplied Wicked Wanda branding onto the carton’s dieline structure and printed the cartons onto a durable 350gsm Satin board. Then die-cut and glued the carton.

Printing Carton Wraps for Goodnature

We’re fortunate to have Wellington’s Goodnature as a client and in January 2023 they came to us with a problem. They had a looming export order of traps that needed to be shipped and while they had the product and cartons ready to go, they were short of carton wraps used to seal and brand the carton. Goodnature’s normal packaging supplier could not produce the order in less than 5 weeks, so could we do any better?

Within a day or so we had a prototype printed proof output and then produced 550 carton wraps over the next couple of days allowing Goodnature to meet the export deadline.

Goodnature must have been happy with the results as they placed a nearly identical order with us a week later.

Uniting Weeds & Knitting: Printing A Remarkable Book

At Colourcraft, we take pride in delivering premium service and quality for all our printing projects. A recent endeavour that showcases our expertise is the creation of ‘Invasive Hats and How To Knit Them,’ a perfect bound book that combines knitting patterns with insights into the world of weeds.

Our client, Pat from Hyve Books, approached us with the vision for this unique book. With in 56 pages ‘Invasive Hats and How To Knit Them’ is a delightful exploration of eight knitting patterns inspired by weeds. The book aims to raise awareness about the detrimental impact of weeds on our native ecosystems while offering beautiful alternatives in the form of charming hats.

The book was printed in colour on 135gsm Eco-100 paper, a fully recycled Chlorine Free option that aligns with the author’s commitment to sustainability. The cover received a matte lamination, resulting in a scuff-resistant finish with a soft-touch feel and improved long-term durability. The book was then perfect bound.

‘Invasive Hats and How To Knit Them’ was crafted by a talented team. Janet Velvin and Kate Jordan, the book's authors, bring their unique perspectives — a passion for gardening and knitting, and a deep knowledge of plant history and ecosystems — to create an engaging and informative read. The book's design was expertly handled by our long-time collaborator, Pat Velvin, a skilled graphic designer with whom we have had the pleasure of working for nearly a decade.

We take pride in having played a role in bringing ‘Invasive Hats and How To Knit Them’ to life as an example of what we can achieve in print. At Colourcraft, we strive to deliver the highest quality printing projects, showcasing our expertise, creativity and dedication to our craft.

Streamlining Declarations with Practical Guides: Printed for NZ Customs

Colourcraft proudly undertook a project for the New Zealand Customs Service, to enhance border processes through the production of a translation guide for the New Zealand Traveller Declaration Form.

Our team carefully printed the 62-page guidebooks, featuring translations in 29 languages. Printed in full colour and in the branding of NZ Customs, the guidebooks were printed on sturdy 300gsm stock to ensure durability. Each page received scuff-resistant matt lamination to enhance longevity amid daily use.

Bound with a straightforward left-edge wiro binding using white wire, the guidebooks were distributed to airports nationwide, serving as valuable references for both travellers and the NZ Customs team.

The project's success became evident as NZ Customs returned for another print run, and the Ministry of Primary Industries commissioned a batch of their own.

Colourcraft takes pride in supporting NZ Customs processes with these durable, high-quality guidebooks. Our commitment is consistently demonstrated through the delivery of practical, quality printing solutions, for clients in business, industry and government.

Elevating Impressions: RescueMetrics' Distinctive Triple-Mounted Business Cards

At Colourcraft, our commitment to delivering premium service and exceptional quality shines through in every project we take on.

Tim from RescueMetrics, a Wellington-based leader in precise campaign tracking, had an upcoming business trip to Japan and wanted to make a lasting impression. We embraced the challenge of crafting business cards that would captivate and endure.

We created a set of triple-mounted cards, a unique approach that adds depth and sophistication to the traditional business card.

The cards were constructed with three layers of cardstock. The outer layers, made from 256gsm white stock, encased a core layer of colorplan stock, selected to match RescueMetrics' signature purple brand colour.

To ensure these cards would stand the test of time while offering a tactile experience, we applied scuff-resistant matt lamination to both sides. This not only provides a soft-touch finish but also improves durability over time.

RescueMetrics' logo was further enhanced with a UV gloss varnish, applied to create a captivating contrast with the matt laminated background.

The result? A set of business cards that not only commands attention but also embody RescueMetrics' professionalism and commitment to excellence.

At Colourcraft, our devotion to premium quality and craftsmanship remains unwavering. As a Wellington-based printing and graphics leader since 1985, we hold true to our commitment to quality and client satisfaction – a promise backed by more than 60 five-star Google reviews.

Garage Project Business Cards: The Art of Craft

At Colourcraft, we take great pride in the ongoing work we produce for Garage Project, the renowned independent brewery based in Wellington. Since 2017, we have been trusted with the task of bringing their business cards to life, and it has been an honour to contribute to their brand.

The front of each card features the owner's contact details, which we lay out in a common style. However, it is the reverse side of these cards which makes them unique.

Embracing Garage Project’s passion for art and their commitment to pushing boundaries, we print 20+ different kinds of beer art on each card's back. These iconic designs come from Garage Project's collaboration’s with some of Aotearoa's most talented artists.

To ensure the longevity and tactile appeal of the cards, we apply a durable scuff-resistant matt lamination to both sides. Which enhances the overall durability of the cards while providing a soft touch finish that leaves a lasting impression.

At Colourcraft, we understand that business cards serve as an introduction to a company's identity and values. By delivering exceptional print quality, with attention to detail, we strive to showcase Garage Project's dedication to their craft.

Premium Keg Collar Printing: Reflecting Good George Brewing's Commitment to Craft

At Colourcraft, we're passionate about collaborating with exceptional brands and the work we produce for Good George Brewing Co was no exception. In 2022 over several orders, we printed close to 10,000 keg collars for this iconic Hamilton-based brewery.

Keg collars play a crucial role in identifying and branding beer kegs. These die-cut ‘collars’ are securely attached to the neck of each keg, ensuring that the specific beer inside can be easily recognised during its journey from Good George Brewing Co to bars and establishments throughout the country.

We print keg collars on Formakote Natura 300gsm, a locally-made packaging board sourced from sustainable, well-managed forests in Whakatāne, New Zealand. This board boasts excellent durability, especially when subjected to the rigorous conditions of chillers.

To achieve their unique shape, we cut the keg collars using a precision die-cutting process, using standing cutting tooling that is widely used by our brewery clients throughout the country.

We take pride in our craftsmanship and attention to detail, and we were thrilled to contribute to Good George Brewing Co.'s commitment to delivering extraordinary beers.

Commemorating the Pacific Business Trust's Journey through Print: A Meaningful Report for PwC Wellington

A new client, PwC Wellington, asked for our help in bringing a beautifully designed report to life for their client, the Pacific Business Trust. The purpose of this report was to commemorate the remarkable journey of the Pacific Business Trust since its establishment in 1985, paying homage to the past, embracing the present, and envisioning the future.

The report comprised 66 pages and was perfect bound. In our commitment to sustainability and maintaining print quality, we used Eco-100, a fully recycled Chlorine Free paper. To enhance both the visual appeal and durability, we applied a matte lamination to the cover, resulting in a scuff-resistant, soft-touch finish. Additionally, we applied a spot gloss UV varnish to specific elements of the cover's graphics, creating a glossy effect that added depth and contrast to the overall design.

We take pride in the trust placed in us by PwC Wellington and we are proud to have played a role in bringing this significant report to life. It is our commitment to quality that drives us to deliver exceptional print solutions that reflect the impact and importance of our clients' work.

Emporio Coffee has been a respected brand in the New Zealand coffee industry for more than two decades and we’re proud to call them clients (and neighbours).

Knowing only a clean machine can make a great espresso, it was only a matter of time before Emporio launched their own espresso cleaning product onto the market.

They came to us to lend a hand with the graphic design and print. Emporio had a clear vision for what they wanted, which made the layout of the graphics an easy task.

Creating a colour reference guide for Awanui

At Colourcraft, we take great pride in delivering premium printing services. In collaboration with the renowned graphic design studio Ocean Design, we have printed a comprehensive colour reference guide for Awanui. This A3-sized document serves as a benchmark for Awanui's brand, stakeholders and suppliers throughout the country.

The guide provides essential information and resources related to Awanui colour usage and establishes target, acceptable, and unacceptable colour standards. Additionally, the guide includes perforated tear-out colour swatches for convenient reference.

The front and back covers were printed in colour on 350gsm Silk Matt paper. A protective matt lamination was applied to the covers, ensuring durability and longevity. The pages were printed on 256gsm Silk Matt paper, incorporated die-cut elements to create a colour-isolating window for precise colour comparison and featured transparent pages printed on synthetic transparent stock to demonstrate target, acceptable, and unacceptable colour standards.

The result is a meticulously crafted reference guide that reflects the professionalism and dedication of Awanui.

Awanui, with its extensive network and commitment to providing laboratory testing and pathology services to thousands of New Zealanders daily, entrusted us with this project. We are proud to have contributed to their branding transition and to have produced a high-quality reference guide that will serve as a valuable resource within their organisation and beyond.
