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.
