Annual Report production is complete and it’s the perfect time to begin planning for 2014/15.
At CanPrint it has been a record breaking year in terms of quality and timeliness, with a 100% success rate for meeting tabling deadlines at Parliament House. Importantly, customer feedback on the quality of work has been excellent and we are delighted to have exceeded so many clients’ expectations during such a busy period.
It may seem hasty, but now is the right time to begin planning for the production of your 2014/15 Annual Report. CanPrint offers a complete package which includes graphic design, editing, indexing, print, tabling, distribution and production of accessible web versions.
Our guide will help finalise your product specifications for quoting.
1. Graphic design and typesetting
Consider the look and feel of previous reports to see whether it is time for a style update or a complete new look. CanPrint’s design team can provide design concepts or talk through any ideas you may have.
2. Editing and indexing
A well edited and organised Annual Report not only enhances the reading experience but helps communicate your key messages. Our accredited editors and indexers are experienced in working with complex documents to achieve a professional end product.
3. Print specification
There are so many things to consider here and you may know exactly what you require, but a call or a face-to-face meeting with your CanPrint account manager may help clarify any issues and is all part of the comprehensive service we offer.
- Paper stock
- Printing - CanPrint is the only Canberra printer who can print B5 32 page sections perfecting with bleed and varnish on all edges. This productivity gives you more time for editing because we print faster.
As the Commonwealth’s supplier of choice for embargoed and mission critical jobs like Annual Reports and Treasury’s Budget, we have a unique level of knowledge and experience with tabling. In 2014 we successfully tabled 100% of our Annual Reports in full and on time. Please ask your CanPrint account manager to help you correctly schedule this crucial stage of production.
5. Web-ready versions
Producing accessible web versions of all documents tabled in Parliament is a mandatory requirement for all departments and agencies. CanPrint’s digital team will work with you to ensure that the electronic version fully meets the requirements and is identical to the printed version as a:
- Portable Document Format (PDF) compatible with Adobe Reader version 7.0 and above, complete with bookmarks for all headings and sub-headings (heading levels 1 and 2), or
- HyperText Markup Language (HTML) version compatible with your web format.
6. Microsoft Word version In .docx format
CanPrint can provide this for all Microsoft Office Suite users who need to be able to access and use the information contained within the Annual Report after publishing.
The CanPrint team has a wealth of experience in producing Annual Reports in their various forms. Year on year we continue to increase the number of reports we supply because our clients trust us to table on time, we are secure and our quality of work and value for money are unbeatable.
If you are looking for other options, CanPrint can also offer the following digital publishing solutions.
eBooks - publish to iPad and smartphones.
Publishing online is complex: there are many file and format choices. One that is increasingly used in the private sector is ePUB, an open source, non-proprietary format. ePUB enables access from Apple and Android devices such as iPad and smartphones. We can convert your print PDF to ePUB, either as a fixed-layout format - retaining all your design elements - or as a free-flowing format - optimised for reading on mobile devices.
PDF Page turner - want to display your Annual Report online in a realistic and usable way?
CanPrint can help by transforming your Annual Report into a PDF Page turner which allows you to captivate your clients and business partners with an accessible and comfortable reading experience. We can transform any document into a powerful and stylish publication which can be instantly shared, accessed and read online on any computer or mobile device as well as offline from a CD, DVD or USB drive.
