From concept to delivery

From the idea to the delivery, for a tiny job like a special invitation to a huge job of hundreds of thousands of books in many languages, for clients all over the world, Papersmyths incorporates pop-ups into books, brochures and cards – making them leap into life with fun and excitement, giving an edge to make them truly memorable and ultimately more successful.

First of all, we can help with the design and concepts, then we will create a rough working model and discuss it with you. Depending on the complexity of the project this can take a number of versions but eventually we will create the vector files and we can move on to liaise with you or your artworkers – or we can do the artwork ourselves. Once the artwork is checked and the report is approved, we print and assemble the pop-ups. We do this in the UK, Europe, China, Thailand and Singapore, depending upon the quantity and schedule of the project. Finally, we can arrange shipping and delivery to you.
