We love these bespoke photo frames produced for a photographic promotions company. We produced two different designs, printed on a heavy board and die cut to create the shaped aperture and stands. The client is equally over the moon with these eye catching promotional pieces.
If you have a promotional print project on the go, please get in touch. We look forward to working with you.
Here at EGP with love everything about print, its such a fascinating and amazing industry. Lunch times are often spent googling interesting facts over a sandwich. Following are some fascinating print facts, hopefully these will liven up your lunch break.
World’s Smallest Printed Book
A 22 page Japanese book containing pictures of the flowers of the four seasons holds a Guinness World Book of Records entry. It may be a fast read, but we don’t advise you doing so without a magnifying glass–unless you want to strain your eyes–because this is no ordinary book; it’s the world’s smallest printed book, 0.74 x 0.75 mm (0.0291 x 0.0295 in).
Largest Printed Catalogue
Remember when catalogues were the premier way to shop? People would spend hours pouring over the glossy pages. In 2005, Aviall Services Inc. released a behemoth that would put even the thickest catalogue to shame. They released their ‘Aviall Product and Catalog Book’ on January 3, 2005. It has 2,656 pages, weighs 7.4 lb (3.4 kg) and is 7.1 cm (2.8 in) thick.
The retail cost of black printer ink is one of the most expensive liquids on the planet, far exceeding oil and even space shuttle fuel (on a per gallon basis). It costs over $2,700 per gallon!
Chef Homaro Cantu, of Moto in Chicago, starting printing out delightful sushi entrees using a Canon i560 inkjet printer with edible ink in 2005. The son of an engineer, some of his customers have described him as a cross between a mad scientist and gourmet chef. Regardless their opinion, they find his imagination admirable–so much so that they’re willing to pay upwards of $240 for his experimental tasting menu.
Fastest time to print 500 sheets by an office color desktop printer
If you own a printer, you know that searching for just the right one can take quite a bit of time. However, seeing the above fact in a printer’s specs might help to speed up your decision. The Hewlett-Packard Officejet Pro X551dw Printer was pitted against five other printers in the same model class across several manufacturers, to determine which one could print 500 pages the fastest. The HP Officejet Pro X Series printed 500 color sheets in a record seven minutes and 18 seconds.
Highest Initial Print Run For a Fiction Book
When J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter books were published, they became more than just fiction–the franchise’s influence stretched beyond the literary realm and quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon. Its popularity is also evidenced by the number of print copies for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The book had an initial print run of 12 million copies, making it the largest initial print run ever.
We’d love to here your fascinating print facts, why not post them below.
