CLIQX and Watermarx’s work is award-winning in its own right, so we’re not surprised clever printers choose to work with us, to help make their jobs shine…literally. Our foil stamping and edge gilding find a way onto some lovely print pieces. Likewise,  CLIQX embossing and debossing, blind embossing, and letterpress have all been recognised in print industry awards around the world.

HERE’S SOMETHING TO CROW ABOUT | Zhuzhing your design for the Year of the Rooster

 

Happy New Year, creative paper lovers!

We are almost clear of the hyperactive energy of the Monkey (anyone else a little knackered from 2016?) and there are some interesting things happening in the design world to celebrate the upcoming Year of the Rooster. Vans, the streetwear brand, have released six new shoe silhouettes by Shanghai-based designer Kim Kiroic. Not to be outdone, Converse have release a Year of the Rooster apparel and footwear featuring a rooster feather motif and red lace tips. Dior released a rooster bracelet, and you can get some rooster-themed unmentionables from Calvin Klein.

However, in the year that is supposed inspire maximum integrity, perhaps designer froufrou is not quite enough. Enter, the inflatable rooster balloon produced out of China that, as happenstance would have it, coincidentally resembles Donald Trump that has gone viral on the internet.

The Rooster should be a fashionable year. He’s a stylish character, who excels in elegance and charm, a tad cocky, one might say. Nevertheless, it’s not all frivolity, Roosters are hardworking and punctual so don’t expect 2017 to be a feet-up year… as if we hadn’t already figured that out!

For those of you looking to create something special to celebrate this lunar New Year, Watermarx is right now printing some beautiful, colourful designs and sprucing up money envelopes.

It’s the Fire Rooster’s year, so put a bit of shimmer and shine on your artwork. Flaunt a little! We can help breathe fresh 2017 vitality and style into your designs with envelopes, postcards and invites with:

  • Foil stamping in gold
  • Letterpress printing in gold
  • Embossing feather or rooster motifs
  • …or whatever your imagination can muster!

Just give us a call and we can talk through the possibilities together.

Here’s to a year that delivers you wealth, health and happiness. Cock-a-doodle-doo!
