Print brings local project to life

An English town has taken to print to honour a former resident who has made a big name for himself.

Healeys was chosen to print the book which Ipswich Borough Council designed

To celebrate his roots, a ‘Made in Suffolk’ exhibition was launched dedicated to music star, Ed Sheeran.

Born in West Yorkshire, Sheeran grew up in Framlingham, Suffolk and recently treated home fans in Ipswich to the final performance of his world tour.

Ipswich Borough Council (IBC) produced a catalogue to accompany the exhibition which, in true ‘Made in Suffolk’ style, was designed and printed in the English town.

Once the book, titled Ed Sheeran: Made in Suffolk, was designed, IBC turned to local fine art print company Healeys to bring the book to life with added benefit to the environment through its carbon offset scheme.

Seeing the final book in all its glory, we feel very proud this was achieved and that we did this coupled with a notable environmental positive impact

Terry Adams, commercial manager of Healeys, explains how the company’s excitement about the project turned to pride when it was chosen to complete the job.

Adams says: “Our experience in the fine art catalogue market, along with discussions with council designer Sharon Teague, made it easy to specify the brochure to a high standard to ensure the amazing imagery in the book was reflected in our printing.

“Seeing the final book in all its glory, we feel very proud this was achieved and that we did this coupled with a notable environmental positive impact. Colin Davidson, the renowned artist whose portraits of Ed are showcased in the book and exhibition, told me: ‘Never has my work been produced in print so beautifully’.”
