“Great staff and service, their prices are competitive, quality is second to none, they give great advice on how to get the most out of the print projects I send them and they always deliver on time.”
David Roberts – Internationally Renowned Children’s Book Illustrator, Dr. Illustration
For David’s most recent publication, Bathe the Cat, the work was more challenging as the artwork being scanned was A3 in size for larger double page spreads. Added to that, the colours being used were neon pinks, yellows and oranges which are very difficult colours to get right. But thanks to Rival’s expertise we were able to successfully able to replicate the original vibrant colours.
When Rival Colour’s owner Nick parked his car at David’s house for the first time to collect his artwork, David explained that he’s a Liverpudlian and we ‘love a chat’. Nick laughed and replied: “Well that’s great, as I’m a Cockney and we love a chat too.” The relationship started there and David went on to say that in a digital world engagement with real people is increasingly more important. David says that “less business talk, a friendly face and a chat makes the world go round.” Now isn’t that a colourful picture that deserves to be illustrated.
