I have placed my media industry title with Allkotes for the past eight years. As an industry leading publication accessing media agencies, publishers and marketing executives the quality of content must be matched by the quality of the tactile elements Allkotes provide for the product. In this market we search for the competitive edge and Allkotes provides us with the point of difference, which adds significant value to our brand.
We were looking for a unique embellishment to enhance the covers of a suite of printed Annual and Sustainability reports we were producing for a client. Integrating the use of TouchMatte and Micromotion, created an incredible dimension and contrast of textures, enhancing the concept and resulting in an incredible tactile experience for the reader. Our client was extremely happy and impressed with the finished result
As our finishing partner for Justus Magazine Issue03, Allkotes did an incredible job in assisting us to realise our ambitions for the latest issue, dedicated to the luxurious special effect that is varnish. We are truly thankful for the time, expertise and extensive knowledge that we received from Allkotes, who courageously brought our pages to life.
Apparently online is killing print. Try telling that to our readers who just got to run their fingers over 16 glorious pages of three dimensional wonder. It's inspired them to travel to Tasmania like no other piece of work we've done before. If your print magazine is dying, then talk to Allkotes and make print unique again.
As I glanced at and flicked the inserts I could feel the textured cover teasing my fingers. How long since I have been aroused by a texture or a smell from a magazine. I haven't ever opened up and read B&T mag before!!
