Manvers printing firm heralds Game of Thrones return

A PRINTING company has heralded the return of hit TV show Game of Thrones by printing its characters business cards — and arranging them into a mosaic.

Manvers firm instantprint produced stationery for 15 characters, before using them to make a huge, 3,906-card portrait of Jon Snow.

Staff spent weeks designing the bespoke business cards, while the image — measuring 5.35m by 3.41m — took 13 people nine-and-a-half hours to assemble.

The project showcases some of the capabilities of the Manvers-based firm, which also holds the Guinness World Record for largest business card ever printed.

Studio manager Mark Young said: “This was something the creative team and marketing team thought up — creating a big promotional piece coinciding with the release of the new Game of Thrones season.

“The creative team came up with the idea of giving the characters their own business cards.

“All of the cards are assigned a code and we’ve printed that on the back of each card using software we use for our variable impositions.

“Then we printed a big grid on our large-format printers and these guys have spent all day putting the cards on it.”


  • WOW! This is just amazing. Such a good idea! :)
