Quantum Group, an international printing company, received and completed Michael Jackson Memorial
Programs in less than 36 hours. Previously engaged to provide printing for Jackson’s U.S. tour, the firm
received the Memorial Program assignment after news of Jackson’s death. Quantum Group received final
artwork the afternoon of Sunday, July 5, with the knowledge that nothing would be allowed into the Staple
Center Memorial site after 4 p.m. on Monday, July 6. Proofs were created through the night and reviewed
by representatives from the client and the Jackson camp. Throughout the late hours of Sunday night and
into early Monday morning, Michael Jackson’s Memorial Program was completed.
“We received a call the following Friday afternoon telling us a Memorial Program was in the works for
Michael’s funeral, and that quotes, photos and other materials were being gathered feverishly for a design
in progress in the U.K.,” said Quantum Group CEO Bill White. “Fortunately our team is highly adept at

working under these conditions and understands the special demands and time lines of the entertainment
industry.”
Morton Grove, Ill.-based Quantum Group received the original tour contract due to its expertise in UV and
lenticular printing. The prototype for Jackson’s concert tickets utilized lenticular printing to create an
animated effect of Jackson performing his signature moonwalk across the ticket. “That morning we were
notified we’d been awarded his world tour—by the afternoon he was gone,” stated White.
Quantum Group maintains a niche in the entertainment industry as the source for souvenir tour books,
programs, posters, tickets, other materials and more. Aside from Jackson, since the company’s inception
in 1992, its portfolio has been expanded with work for names including Paul McCartney, Elton John,
Britney Spears, Tina Turner, Billy Joel, The Rolling Stones, U2, Cher, and Barry Manilow.
Another Jackson piece of work was produced by a U.K. printer using a KBA North America press. The
Dallas-based press maker announced that a 100,000 initial print run of a new book, entitled Michael
Jackson Legend Hero Icon, has been produced in record-setting time by British printer Butler, Tanner &
Dennis.
The new book, written by James Aldis, was produced
in less than a week by the printer’s Frome operation
on its eight-color large-format KBA Rapida 162a 64-
inch sheetfed press in six days rather than two to
three weeks. The heavily inked 192-page biography
of the self-proclaimed King of Pop was printed four-
over-four on the KBA Rapida 162a 64-inch sheetfed
press that has a production speed of 9,000 sph in
perfecting mode. The lavishly illustrated book offers
an insightful tribute to the man behind Thriller. The
book includes sections on Jackson’s early life and the
Jackson 5, the making of Off the Wall and Thriller,
and the troubled years leading right up to his announcement of a comeback tour.
Darran O’Connor, Butler, Tanner & Dennis clients services director, said, “For this sort of run we would

normally expect the job to take two to three weeks. To condense it down to less than a week is unusual and
being able to perfect on the KBA helped to achieve this.”
