Steamist is an international exclusive steam room supplier, with a strong heritage in the USA. The UK region was looking for a brochure to grow the presence here and showcase their range to bathroom showrooms nationwide.

Trident were tasked to create a new look and feel for their brochure complimenting the designs from their USA partners, but with a style that would work for the luxury UK market.

In recent years, paper marketing material has been in the focus for marketing managers and business owners looking to boost their green credentials. As a business, we also have a number of businesses that we work with that have real values around sustainability and paper is always a focus.

With this in mind, we did some research into one of our main partners for paper supply and we’re really pleased to share what they do.
