American Trilogy Invitation

This is the beautiful invitation for the private view of the Ernesto Cánovas exhibition held at the Halcyon gallery in April. I previously wrote about the catalogue for the exhibition on this blog:
This shows the thickness
Size is A5, portrait and is a single card (2pp) made by printing and then duplexing our Omnia 280gsm  to make 560gsm - which is around 800micron thick - a truly substantial invitation! The front of the invitation is printed CMYK with a section of the artwork titled 'Rudolph Territory'. The reverse is printed offset litho in special gold plus black.
One of the main things to mention about the front of the invite is that the image area (below) is over-printed with a gloss UV varnish. (...just worth pointing out that Omnia is one of the very few papers with an uncoated look and feel that you can successfully UV varnish on to with one pass and it looks excellent). It also reflects the look feel of the actual artwork itself.
The gloss varnish also accentuates the artist's injection of vivid colour which features throughout his work.
The invitation is designed and produced at the Halcyon Gallery. Designer of the invitation (and catalogue) is Alfie Hunter.

Printing is by Leicester based Greenshires with Richard Dalby handling the project. Beautifully printed and finished, the UV varnish looks great - a really well produced piece.
