The Print Handbook began as a personal project whilst I was working at The Media Collective. It’s aim then and still today is to help designers and design students with the tricky technical bits in print design. When I started working as a freelancer it became a collaboration between The Media Collective and Andy Brown Design.
The first edition came out in 2011 and was accompanied by the birth of our first son. A few years on and the 3rd edition of the Print Handbook has recently been published and has again been accompanied by another baby boy.
The Print Handbook Store is now solely run by Andy Brown Design. It has expanded to include a dedicated resources section and a range of new products. We are so excited about the launch of our 3rd edition Print Handbook. We’ve taken steps to make our service a little more personal and we look forward to packing up your order.
We are a small company consisting of Andy (me) in my little office/box room and recently my wife (Emily) who works whenever the children are quiet! We happily live around boxes of handbooks and other resources that we send out from our little home - not forgetting the toys we trip up on on a daily basis! We are based in the very small, but delightfully beautiful Northern Ireland where we love our tea and put up with slightly disappointing summers.
