“Ananti Penthouse Invitation”
Since 2014, Pacom has worked on a book project for Emerson Pacific Group.
About Ananti Penthouse
The Ananti Penthouse is premium resort condominium complexes near Seoul and in Busan.
The penthouses took a lengthy 5 years to complete. Be it the construction, the interior, the sufficient natural lighting and environmental planning, were all done by the professionals in each field. The best feature was its Eco-friendly IMTEC system that uses an automated cold/hot water running system throughout the resort to adjusting the indoor temperature. To simplify there is no air conditioner and heater in the penthouse be it summer or winter. The guests will be able to enjoy the abundant green shower throughout their stay for total relaxation.
Emerson Pacific Group is widely known for its Ananti chain of a golf and resort operator.
In 2014 Emerson Pacific gave public notice of a printing bid and Pacom Korea had participated in a tender.
Emerson Pacific chose to work with Pacom Korea because Pacom Korea provides one stop integrated solution, from planning to final delivery as well as competitive price. And they impressed our tight control on paper and raw material supplies, delivery, and cost which makes it possible for us to return significant savings to our customer.
To celebrate opening premium resort in Busan, special invitation was made. What makes this invitation so special is the physical size of the invitation compared to normal invitation made by the card format. Because they love to show Ananti Penthouse surrounded with beautiful landscape and nature.
The invitation was printed using coated paper stock and varnishes are applied to the entire printing surface in order to give the page a smooth and consistent texture but also having the added benefit of sealing the printed material to help preserve it better.
To express the leather texture on cover, Embossing coating was applied.
A unique feature of the invitation is saddle stitch without staples. Bookbinding tools designed to insert band into the spine (saddle) of folded printed matter.
Emerson Pacific was pleased with the result of test printing done by Pacom. Since 2014, they use Pacom for printing of the bi-monthly publication, Ananti Pent House.
“Save the Children”
Pacom have worked on a book project for Save the Children since 2011.
About this book
‘Save the Children’ has conducted programs for multicultural families.

Pacom Korea chose illustrators, mainly students, to give amateurs an opportunity on 2011 and it took around 8 months to design the book of ‘Double language, double joy’. The books are classified in 4 levels, and each book are produced in Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese and Mongolian versions and also each language versions consist of different fairy tales for understanding cultural difference. All sets have 6 fairy tales, 1 activity book and 1 guideline book. Thus, the 128 books were designed by Pacom Korea. Pacom Korea focused on developing a practical and useful teaching material, by giving priority to the balance of text and illustration, developmental stages of children and their age, and cultural elements of each country in the designing process.
Eight books which consist of 6 fairy tales, 1 activity book and 1 guideline book are packaged in a specially designed box. Because we want children to carry easily and make children feel a sense of accomplishment when they are step up.

“Peck Peck Peck”
In 2014, Pacom worked on a book project for JY books.
About this book
Peck Peck Peck is a picture book about a baby woodpecker. On the opening page, the bird is learning how to peck a tree. The little guy soon gets carried away and pecks not just through a tree, but also through a hat, a mat, tennis rackets, and a jacket. This book takes readers through an entire house from the front door to the bathroom. They grow more numerous as the woodpecker gets more and more carried away. With the detailed illustrations done in thick, dark lines and rhymes that flow easily.
The interesting parts of this book have an invisible dot matrix called carbon printing. When you scan the text or pictures, an optical sensor reads an invisible dot matrix on each page that triggers exiting audio interactions. Especially Pacom Korea concentrated carbon printing part because making sounds of Reader pen clear decided to adjust ink density and dry time.
One of unique features has holes on board cover and there are also small cutout circles on each page. As a baby woodpecker becomes better and better at pecking, there are more and more holes to stick little fingers through.
JY books bought the copyright from Walker Books in London. JY books showed the satisfaction on the making of this book as well as quality. Peck Peck Peck has become popular in Korea. Pacom Korea is in the process of reprinting these books.
Pacom Korea began a new project with Dukedom Music & Publishing.
About this book
Pacom Korea began a new project with Dukedom Music & Publishing. This hard cover book was printed in April of 2014.
Of particular interest was the books unique size, 330mm x 165mm. The book’s layout was landscape because many of the photos were taken in a panoramic style to highlight the many sights of Vancouver, Canada.
Additionally 16 pages of the book, Each card has perforations to allow the owner to send the card to loved ones.
Being that the postcards needed to qualify for mailing standards and specifications, the paper was required to be in this case, the text pages are 150 gsm gloss art and the postcards are 250 gsm gloss art.
This turned out to be a slight challenge as the width was so long that a machine could not be used. Pacom has faced the challenge of needing to produce books manually and therefore they were up to making this special book a reality.
Pacom is well equipped for hand crafted books such as this. Large bindings require not only manpower but also an eye for quality. The plant managers stepped through each step of each book, carefully inspecting the bindings to ensure they would last for a very long time. This is especially the case when various types of paper thickness are used in the binding.
The customer was very pleased with the results. Labors of love. Pacom understands that each book is not just paper and print. It’s so much more when done right.
In 2015, the customer has requested on a reprint of the Cuban version of We look forward to diving into the project.
