The prestigious Sunseeker brochure showcases our skills in foil-blocking, embossing and debossing on the cover, complemented by soft touch lamination and a lay-flat format. This attractive brochure is FSC certified, and carbon balanced, offering a magnificent, finished product with an elegant black marker ribbon. Our partner, Diamond Print Finishing, took charge of the lay flat binding and along with our representative had the customer visit their factory to witness the intricate process first-hand.
The Global Marketing Manager of Sunseeker, praised the superior quality and finish of the brochure, honouring it as a reflection of the high standards they maintain for their luxury motor yachts. We’re thrilled to have met the crucial deadline for the Cannes Boat Show where Sunseeker’s 2024 range was unveiled.

1 env Solutions
Our first project with this client involved a lot of research into the ideal finishes for the cover. Some of the client’s initial ideas were quite complex, so we had to provide guidance on how to achieve the ideal finish. The brochure cover was completed with soft-touch lamination and high build UV. It was FSC accredited and carbon balanced, which was confirmed by the FSC logo and World Land Trust logos printed on the inside front cover. The brochure was PUR bound in-house, and the customer was highly satisfied with the result.
This brochure was printed on Premium offset, which the customer was highly impressed with. The finish was uncoated but managed to retain the detail in the images, essential for such a high-quality product. After being PUR bound in-house, it was sent to Monarch for index tabbing. We continue to cooperate closely with this customer on their esteemed brochures.
At W&G Baird take great pride in our accomplishments and strive to provide bespoke printing services that set industry standards. We are truly thankful for our clients’ trust and their positive feedback, which reinforces our commitment to excellence.
