Quad becomes exclusive printer of Talbots Catalogs

Thursday, February 18, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

Sussex, Wisconsin – Under terms of a new multi-million-dollar agreement, Quad/Graphics this summer will become the exclusive print provider for all Talbots catalogs. The new contract covers premedia services, printing and distribution of all catalogs annually for Talbots, a leading multi-channel retailer of women's apparel, shoes and accessories based in Hingham, Mass.

Quad/Graphics' state-of-the-art Premedia Solutions Center in Braintree, Mass., near Talbots' headquarters, will handle premedia production for the catalogs. The catalogs will be printed at Quad/Graphics' Lomira, Wis., plant, the world's largest printing plant under one roof, and distributed via its fleet of trucks.

Quad/Graphics' Relationship With Talbots
Quad/Graphics has printed millions of Talbots catalogs annually since 1997, but until now has shared the work with a competitor. The Wisconsin-based printer now will produce 100 percent of Talbots catalog work. Quad/Graphics' long, solid relationship with Talbots is based on world-class customer service combined with the top-quality printing and distribution services and the geographic proximity and technology of the Braintree Premedia Solutions Center, according to Joel Quadracci, Quad/Graphics Chairman, President & CEO.

"Performance is what counts, and winning an exclusive contract like this with a leading retailer like Talbots is proof that Quad/Graphics employees have performed beyond Talbots' expectations," Mr. Quadracci said. "With this new agreement, Talbots has exhibited its trust in Quad/Graphics' people and capabilities, and our veteran Talbots teams in Massachusetts and Wisconsin are ready to show that trust is justified."
