The complexity of the challenge does not matter, it is the results that count. With our motivated artisans and our impressive technological equipment, we can meet many challenges. Here are a few of our proudest achievements.

Publication

Our roadmap in printing for publication confirms l’Empreinte’s great expertise in delivering quality work. With production time well below average, the quality level of the printed product and the effectiveness of our quality controls will show why l’Empreinte is so renowned for the value it adds.

The Art of Flavor

The Art of Flavor is a bold achievement for which the artisans at l'Empreinte have had the pleasure of unleashing their full potential. In this cookbook, pastry chef Amaury Guichon takes you on a gourmet journey across several continents. This achievement, which was recognized by the jury, recently won us the Gutenberg Prize in the "Book Publishing" category. This volume contains four sheets of Clearfold translucent paper, which gives it a very sophisticated look. Thanks to an ingenious combination of robustness and aesthetics, our artisans have also managed to simulate a saddle-sewn finish for a most meticulous look.

A true partnership between the agency and the printer to create the annual report of one of our Quebec leaders, Agropur, a dairy cooperative.  The elegance and purity of the paper is quickly apparent in its whiteness and its gold embossing.  Coming from an eco-responsible source (FSC), this pure white paper pays tribute to the magnificent images of our agricultural producers.

Notre-Dame Basilica

This book is an invitation to rediscover a rich heritage, which is most meaningful when seen in person!  It is intended to show both its complex architecture and its great artistic and religious significance.  Full-colour printing + pms, sewn interior sections, stitched spine, all under a protective jacket: here is everything you need to enter this historically rich universe.  Created with thin layers of gold, the gilded edging recalls high quality medieval illuminations.  A true masterpiece!

Banque Nationale

A mutual trust has grown over years of working with Banque Nationale.  This annual report is a long-term project which starts in December and is delivered in February.  From a simple word file, the pre-press department standardizes everything according to a very specific printing schedule for this type of product.  We need to make sure that everything remains in place despite the instability of this type of file.  A printing project of this nature requires perfection at all stages: pre-press, printing and binding.  We always work in this manner to ensure that our customers are completely satisfied.  Three types of paper were used here, one of which was very thin, allowing for a smaller, lighter ratio that is perfect for mailing.
