We are very proud to have been chosen to print this prestigious book celebrating 50 years of the wonderful Shelter Housing and have also printed promotional books for Soho Housing.

Having printed for Shelter before their marketing team contacted Ex Why Zed for an initial set of quotes which were refined down to a bespoke size slightly smaller than A4.

Uncoated stock was chosen throughout because of its archival quality and it fitted the subject matter more than a shiny, sleek silk paper. With such importance placed on this project there were a lot of people who had a vested interest in ensuring it was a publication befitting of their 50 year celebration. To ensure the Shelter team were happy with their Housing Society book printing choice of papers and colour reproduction we ran a hard copy proof for final sign off by their stake holders. On approval we then set the wheels in motion on the final print run and printed, bound and delivered the finished books within 3 working days.

The book depicts a timeline of the charity’s history including a fine selection of photos carefully curated from their archive library all printed on our Indigo digital presses.

Ex Why Zed makes self publishing a truly pleasurable experience!
Brilliant communication from start to finish. Mike had endless patience for the many questions we asked. The guides provided were easy to follow and super helpful (the video guides are a must watch too). Our order of hardback illustrated children's books was delivered expertly packaged and on time. As for the finished product itself - stunning - a real joy to finally hold, beautifully made and perfectly printed! We couldn't have asked for more. Well, we did - we instantly placed an order for paperback children's colouring books too, which we are equally as happy with. Look forward to working with Ex Why Zed again in the future.
