Cirencester College

Cirencester College

Cirencester College is a specialist sixth form college in a rural setting on the outskirts of Cirencester, Gloucestershire.  One of only three designated specialist Sixth Form Colleges in the Southwest, the College is one of the top ranking Sixth Form Colleges in the country.

Belmont Press have an established relationship with Cirencester College spanning over a 15-year period. In June this year we were delighted to be working with Cirencester again to produce the 2023 Freshers Magazine. This 20pp A5 sized magazine provides essential information for first-year students.

The artwork was very well prepared by the college team and passed through our online artwork processing portal with no file error warnings.

As well as preflight checks, our portal offers the opportunity for artwork to be viewed in page turner format which helps clients visualise and examine image spreads and style format.

Dedicated fulfilment and mailing team

The magazine was to be printed on 120gsm uncoated paper stock with the additional requirement of a coater to be applied throughout the publication. This was achieved using our XL75 Heidelberg Press equipped with an in-line coating unit.

Upon successful completion in production, the finished magazine was transferred to our dedicated internal fulfilment and mailing team which are located on our premises.

Our team are adept at managing varied and complex mailings, handling multiple projects with mixed quantities of recipients and different mailing drop date requirements every week.

Just over 2,500 copies were poly wrapped in recyclable clear material, sealed with postage label attached.  These were mailed on an economy service to suit the college’s budget whilst maintaining the required delivery date. A further smaller quantity was delivered to the campus for internal distribution.

Long lasting relationship

The Head of Marketing & Communications at Cirencester College, had this to say about the experience of working with Belmont Press:

"Belmont produce various publications for us, from A5 magazines to College prospectuses. Good turnaround time, trust, quality, service, and colour consistency are all really important to us.

The team always provide excellent customer service, quick responses to requests and they are always accommodating.  They also help us work through and resolve any issues/problems and generate new ideas for our projects.

All of our joint projects have been well received.  Having worked together for circa 15 years, I would highly recommend Belmont Press to others."
