Contrary to what you might assume, “How To Make Lemonade” is not instructions for making lemonade. Instead, an exclusive book by and about R&B and pop singer Beyoncé, produced by the American Bertelsmann Printing Group subsidiary Coral Graphics, is the secret behind this title.
Four Gold, three Silver and one Bronze – this is the impressive result of the Bertelsmann Printing Group USA at the 2017 FSEA Gold Leaf Awards. The awards recognize creative excellence in the design and execution of printed specialty effects, foil stamping, embossing, die cutting, UV and specialty coatings and laminations. They are presented by the Foil and Specialty Effects Association (FSEA).
When new blockbusters like “Ghostbusters” open in theaters these days, their box-office release is accompanied by myriad media and merchandising products – from the soundtrack to the book to the film to related toys. This is where the Bertelsmann Printing Group USA comes into play. In the past three months alone, the printing group has produced tie-in products for more than 40 films, including the above-mentioned “Ghostbusters."
US unit sales of ebooks in 2015 fell 13% but print units rose 2.8% to 653 million, according to Nielsen Book Scan, largely due to the strength of Adult Coloring Books! Twelve million units were sold in 2015. Color a smile on the faces of BPG USA employees at this news as our printing presses roll out beautiful products like Pippa's Magical Garden. Coloring books don't work well as ebooks.
The latest sales successes of the BPG businesses in the United States are music to the ears of the colleagues there. In recent weeks, they have produced covers and inlays for countless holiday-themed albums and hit records.
American bookshops carry between 20,000 and 120,000 titles — so the more eye-catching a cover is for buyers, the better. With the capabilities it offers, BPG subsidiary Coral Graphics Services makes a good first impression with readers.
