Icon Reproduction is an origination company specialising in

high-quality colour reproduction. Situated by London’s Blackfriars

Bridge, Icon provides publishers, advertising and design agencies, and

printers with a fast and efficient 24-hour service.



Formed in 1994, the company is poised to increase its influence within

the pre-press market. The substantial on-going investment programme has

resulted not only in the best equipment but also the staff who can offer

customers technical advice on the production of their projects, from

specific details to overviews.



Icon works on the principle that clear communication between the client

and the company is paramount in providing first-class service at the

speed its clients require. The staff have worked with magazines,

periodicals and advertising campaigns for a number of years, thus

enabling Icon to be in a position to grow with its customers in

developing new and more efficient methods of production, whether in the

area of technical developments, or in the more personal side of working

practices between client and supplier.



Both of these areas are recognised as critical to the production

process, which Icon is committed to developing.



Icon understands that each customer has its own special production

requirements.



The changing face of technology has affected the way in which clients

are working. With a new investment of Crosfield equipment to add to the

scanners and imagesetters already in place, Icon can produce quality

work from conventional artwork or digital data. Further investment is

already being planned and Icon keeps a very close watch on changes

taking place within the industry.



Icon offers a wide range of reproduction services to the publishing

world including Haymarket Publishing, publishers of Campaign. Icon has

been associated with Campaign for four years and is proud to be involved

with it.



Apart from magazine origination, Icon is also actively involved in

fine-art colour reproduction, working with a number of Mayfair galleries

and auction houses. This high-end and demanding work is ideally suited

to Icon’s working practices where clients often have very individual

parameters.



Icon is honoured to be the sponsor of the Best Use of Typography Award

this year and everyone at Icon extends their congratulations to the

winner.
