Designing and producing all your business communication needs

Sunset Publishing Services is a company dedicated to excellence in the design, layout and production of annual reports, owner/user manuals, catalogues, company profiles, brochures, prospectuses, newsletters and business stationery. In today’s competitive and fast-moving world, it is important that your business projects an image of quality and contemporary thinking.

At Sunset, we view the successful preparation of quality business documents (whether in printed or digital form) as a specialist field that requires a team of trained and experienced staff. Clarity of the message and accuracy are equally important, blended with the most appropriate creative designs to capture attention and maintain interest. An appreciation of the most relevant and appropriate underlying technology for delivery is also critical – not forgetting that correct use of the English language is so important to your image. With over 30 years’ experience in this field, we understand what is required and how to make it happen. In fact, we offer a complete range of services, including project management, to take your requirements from concept through to completion.

If your publication is to be digital only, or print and digital, you may like to consider having us produce it in flipbook/eMag format. Sunset Publishing Services can turn any PDF into this attractive format for viewing online or distribution as an app for Macintosh or Windows platforms. Click on any of the images below for short samples or click here for an example of an online newsletter. This format is also particularly suitable for online catalogues and is fully iPad compatible.

Annual reports/prospectuses

An annual report or prospectus may be the single most important communications tool your organisation produces in the course of a year. It is a document that not only explains where you have been, but also shows your vision for the future. The annual report should appeal to different audiences – investors, regulators, employees and customers – and must be developed as a multi-purpose document. The annual report or prospectus needs to make the right connection with its intended audience. It is an important document that has to be practical, look good and be delivered within budget.

At Sunset Publishing Services, we understand the importance of annual reports and prospectuses, and the financial statements and diverse content they contain. Readers are often interested only in certain sections of the document, yet they obtain an overall feel for the organisation from the manner in which the publication is presented. The credibility of the document comes not only from what is said, but also from the accuracy and clarity of the information presented.

Our challenge is to turn financial statements, audit reports, mission statements and commentary into a document that creates an appropriate impression of the organisation, yet satisfies the needs of various readers to extract information quickly and easily. These documents take time to produce. Information is provided from different areas within the organisation, and all the material must come together to produce an integrated whole. Our key capabilities of accuracy and consistency provide a platform for presentation of material that ensures conformity to appropriate standards and readability throughout.

We understand the operational complexity of organisations and the internal decision-making processes required to make the information available for us to complete the document on time. This is so important that we allocate a senior manager to project-manage the entire process, including creative design to match customers’ expectations, quality assurance and checking (i.e. editing and/or proofreading when requested), layout, scheduling, and print or digital management.

Owner/user manuals

We regularly produce owner manuals for an offshore boat manufacturer’s luxury high-end ocean cruisers. This entails following a detailed set of instructions, checking and, where necessary, amending supplied copy and images, and laying out the pages of the series based on an easy-to-read and attractive design.

Product catalogues

Sunset Publishing Services has the broad range of skills to produce uniquely designed product catalogues from concept through to completion. Accuracy and correct interpretation of material ensures correct grouping of products, and matching of text to associated images. Rather than using ready-made templates, our team produces a design and layout that best meets the function and style of the product list, encompassing our clients’ requirements for size, style, ease of use, and budget.

Technical reports, research publications, monographs, journals and conference proceedings

Many businesses require publications that conform to academic or scientific publishing standards. These documents are covered on a dedicated page.

Multimedia (CDs and DVDs)

We have prepared a large number of CD/DVD supplements for annual reports, textbooks and conference proceedings. Material on disc is usually additional information that may not be economical to produce in printed form, or additional material designed to be viewed, searched electronically or printed by the end-user. Sunset Publishing Services can design the CD/DVD cover and develop content suitable for Web browsers and/or Adobe Reader (PDFs), incorporating sound and video if required. We can create autoloading CDs (some limitations apply) with links to online resources, or to other documents on the CD or DVD. All CD/DVD content is thoroughly tested on various computer platforms.

Company profiles, brochures, newsletters and advertisements

Sunset Publishing Services has the skills and experience to produce quality colour brochures, newsletters and corporate stationery. Our team is experienced in the management of photographs, graphics, advertising material and text. We can work to tight timelines and organise printing or the production of various digital formats.

We have produced brilliant, full-coloured, high-energy publications through to low-cost, black-on-white magazines that still have an impact through the use of structured headings, shading, and quality typesetting. When preparing corporate collateral, we ensure that:

  • the messages are concise and consistent
  • the information conveys a message about the organisation
  • every image and written message is designed to reinforce the company’s brand and reputation in a positive way
  • the focus is on both the creative design and the written word.
