Admiralty Leisure Folios: Production Changes

Admiralty Folios – Print Production

Users of the Leisure Folio may have noticed that the appearance of Leisure Folios has changed recently as Admiralty have moved production to digital printers. The chart paper used is 100% the same, but the cover sheet, which used to be glossy, now appears slightly duller as it is now printed on the same chart paper as the individual charts themselves.

Moving from a lithographic print process to a digital one enables ADMIRALTY to continue to offer Folios at a very competative price, with the cost of the folios remaining constant for several years and making them great value for money. While the price may have remained constant, the paper used has evolved over the years to ensure the best possible qualities required for navigational use; and is not available outside of ADMIRALTY chart products.

The ‘flying A’ watermark is a security feature embedded into the paper of all ADMIRALTY charts which can easily be seen when a chart is held up to the light. Some customers may believe the paper of the charts has changed, it may feel slightly different (perhaps smoother) as it has undergone a different process, but it is in fact the same quality as all of our chart products. To date we are not aware of any incidents of Leisure Folios being copied or forged, however if a leisure folio is found without the ‘flying A’ please contact Customer Services for advice.
