It’s the second year of entering, and the second year of winning! Our Production Team have once more scooped the prestigious Print Week Award 2016 for Social Stationery Printer of the Year, with their winning entry being described by Print Week as “The gold standard in stationery”.
The judges were looking for consistent quality of print, finishing and reproduction and they certainly got what they were seeking from our entry! The examples that were submitted included our stunning 3D Christmas Village Advent Calendar and nine luxury Christmas cards with a glitter finish. Judges were suitably dazzled, with one commenting “The glittering was amazing. I’ve never seen it applied so precisely”.
Seth Woodmansterne was at the Awards Ceremony on Monday evening, together with representatives from his Production Team. After collecting the Award from guest compere Gyles Brandreth, Seth acknowledged the part played by every member of his team “To be a good team takes everyone doing their bit, helping each other out, and overcoming challenges together. To be the best, however, it takes something special – a lot of hard graft, everyone at the top of their game, some skill and flair, and a bit of nous. We must be doing something right, and that’s down to every single one of you. I’m so grateful and proud of you all.”
Paul Woodmansterne added his congratulations, saying “It is a wonderful accolade and proves that winning last year’s contest, which we entered for the first time, was no fluke! At a time when manufacturing in the UK went out of fashion, we have stuck in there and developed a lovely facility which is now the very best of its type in Britain. Well done to all of you. And Thank You.”
