Caltime by Woodmansterne Catalogue 2017

At the end of 2013 Woodmansterne acquired “Caltime” the advent calendar specialists following the retirement of Ted and Glenys Blake, who founded Caltime from their garage in 1979.  Caltime had since gone from strength to strength and by 2013 was recognised as an industry leader, offering over 150 different products including bespoke Advents and promotional items, with everything printed and handmade here in the UK.  Many products are exported to overseas customers in Hong Kong, New Zealand, Africa, Finland and the USA.

We also took delivery of the Caltime Bobst machine – a vintage cutting machine the size of a Cold War amphibian tank from the 1950s which was relocated from the old Caltime premises in Sandy (Bedfordshire) to our Croxley Press in Watford.

Using our award winning production and design expertise to build on the established Caltime brand has produced our unique Caltime by Woodmansterne Advent Calendar collection.
