Print Design

First impressions count, so it’s vital that your marketing literature and company branding are professionally designed. Making your printed materials stand out from your competition could be key to attracting potential customers and Portako have the design skills and experience to produce outstanding work.

If you’d like to discuss creating something new and inspiring then lets discuss a breif, taking into account your individual requirements and goals. We want to hear about your objectives and then put our design studio to work producing initial visuals and discusing your feedback.

In addition to new design projects, we’d be happy to amend existing files either created by a previous designer or in house. This can be to add our own design flair or make the files press-ready so you can begin taking it to market.

What your design needs, our team is here to help. Please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send an email, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

Examples of our design work

Attadale Gardens

Light Up Foundation

Magazine covering the history of Tottenham and Croydon for school children produced for Light Up Foundation. We were provide with CDs and word documents from absolute scratch and used these to create a range of striking pages. Brief was to be bright and appeal to youngsters! Provided full colour mock ups for general approval of layout then full design proofs for approval to print. Croydon and Tottenham versions/editions produced (32pp each x 5,000 copies of each) – of which we managed the print production.

ICG Booklet

6pp Roll Fold, A5 brochure produced for International Jewellery Fair in London. Client provided with copy and images from which we produced the final design. On approval we managed a relatively small print run produced on a high quality digital press.

Portako have printed some of our key marketing materials and we have been consistently impressed with both the quality and turnaround time. Portako’s support has been invaluable as our organisation has grown.
