Jodi Ellen Malpas

Jodi Ellen Malpas is a number 1 New York Times Bestselling Romance Author and Northants entrepreneur. She has written a portfolio of 19 novels in total and has commissioned a range of scented candles, gifts, signed books, art prints and greetings cards via her own website. In 2021 Jodi contacted Belmont Press, as her local Northampton printers, to collaborate on a 2022 printed calendar she planned on publishing. Jodi was pretty open minded on her initial brief.

She had just one initial stipulation: - the calendar must be a quality product to reflect her brand and the other items she makes available on her website.

Leading Northampton printers

It was important we understood client expectations right from the off, so the Belmont Digital Print team put together a couple of different concepts for Jodi to consider.

These were printed on the proposed board before being trimmed and wiro bound so the proof was an exact representation of the final job. After a couple of specification tweaks the artwork was approved for press. Jodi chose a high quality 350gsm coated board, to be used throughout.

We bound the finished calendar in house using black wire before wrapping, ready for onward distribution to Jodi's fan base.

Local partnership

The finished result showcases some great photography in print and achieved the high standard that Jodi was looking for, with her describing our collaboration as follows: -

"The team at Belmont were as passionate about my project as I was, offering advice, options and working efficiently to meet my goal. It was truly a pleasurable experience from design phase to the finished product, which surpassed my expectations."

We loved having the opportunity to work with a local Northampton girl come internationally renowned author and we hope to work together again in the future!
