Case study: Royal Agricultural University

Belmont Press is part of award-winning team

The Royal Agricultural University is recognised nationally and internationally as a leader in education, research and consultancy relating to agriculture and the rural environment.
Its postgraduate and undergraduate prospectuses won awards at the annual Heist Awards for education marketing (known as the Oscars of the education sector) in 2008, 2009 and 2011, and were shortlisted in 2012. As well as the content, artwork and printing of the prospectuses, the judges look at the whole overall package and the effectiveness of the communication.

The prospectuses were printed by Belmont Press, and the Head of Marketing at the Royal Agricultural University describes how working with Belmont has benefited her team:

“We’re really impressed with the advice that we’re given, both from Louise, our account manager at Belmont Press, and Matthew our sales executive.

“They have an extensive knowledge of printing, paper stocks, and the detailed processes involved. They are proactive and ask us about aspects of the job that we haven’t necessarily thought of. It’s not just knowledge of print, but it’s really caring about the product and going the extra mile to ensure that it’s high quality.

“I think our success at the Heist Awards has been because we are experimental and often do something different with our print – but we need to know that it’s going to work. Our 2012 undergraduate prospectus had a matt black cover with gold foiling on, and Belmont printed a prospectus within our budget that had a high quality feel. We achieved this by taking Belmont’s advice on the choice of paper and finishing techniques. I was also impressed by the print quality of the colour images.

“The customer service we receive from Belmont is very friendly, but very professional. They provide a fast turnaround on quotes and samples as well as delivering the job quickly and efficiently.”
