Factory Media’s “A Year in Review” books are a testament to the power of action sports photography and the impact of high-quality printing. These 250x250mm books, perfect bound and printed on uncoated 300gsm for the cover and 120gsm for the 106-page text, are a visual feast of adrenaline-fueled moments captured in stunning detail. The cover’s matte lamination adds a tactile dimension, enhancing the overall appeal of the book.
Factory Media, a leading specialist in lifestyle sports with over 32 world-leading brands, has a knack for capturing the spirit of board sports. The “A Year in Review” books are no exception, filled with breathtaking images of boarders silhouetted against crisp blue skies and angular mountain ranges. The books also feature BMXers, skateboarders, and other high-adrenaline sports, making them a must-have for any action sports enthusiast.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again – we love photography of boards and blue skies! It’s very hard to take a bad pic of a boarder cutting a silhouette on a crisp blue sky with an angular mountain range forming the backdrop. Thankfully the Year in Review books we print for Factory Media are packed with not only these but also BMXers, Skate Boarders and all manner of other high adrenaline photography.
The books were printed using Ex Why Zed’s top-of-the-range litho printing services, with slightly oversized covers produced on our Ricoh wide format digital press and the inside pages printed on our top-of-the-range Indigo press. This ensured that every page of the book was a high-quality print that did justice to the stunning photography it contained.
The “A Year in Review” books are just one example of the high-quality annual report printing and creative industry printing services that Ex Why Zed offers. We’ve also worked on a range of other projects, from promotional brochures for Brixton House to lookbooks for Stella McCartney Sport, and magazines for Vevo DSCVR’s Ones to Watch.
