Walstead Wins Guardian Print Contract

Walstead Wins Guardian Print Contract

The Guardian has moved the production of its Weekend magazine to Walstead Bicester.

The magazine, which is published alongside the newspaper’s Saturday edition, had been gravure printed on the continent and then shipped to the UK.

It is now being printed web offset at Walstead Bicester, on a three-year contract effective from the 2 February issue.

Walstead group sales director Jon Hearnden told PrintWeek: “Any weekly product with significant volume is a key win for us so we’re delighted both for it to have come back to the UK and for us to be producing it for The Guardian. To engage with The Guardian on a project of this size and scale is a real achievement and it’s very satisfying for us to kick off our relationship with them in this manner.”
