Work for prestigious clients Laura Ashley, John Lewis, Debenhams and Marks & Spencer led, this year, to The Artisan Press repeating its 2009 victory in the Catalogue Printer of the Year category.
The judging panel commented that the printer "demonstrated excellent results across difficult materials for high-profile customers with challenging requirements" and that Artisan's "focus on producing almost exclusively for the catalogue market showed a thoughtful approach, in particular in finishing".
The real testament to the printer's suitability for this award, however, is the long-running relationships the company has established with its household-name clients. The Spring/Summer Laura Ashley catalogue Artisan entered this year was the seventh consecutive edition the printer has been entrusted with.
Meanwhile, Artisan has been producing the Marks & Spencer's Home catalogue for 10 years, which, with a run length into seven figures, demands consistent quality and utilises the printer's six presses and extensive bindery.

The judges pronounced this award "a difficult category with a wide breadth of quality entries", so competition must have been tough, not only for the top slot, but also for this much sought-after commended position. But Wyndeham Roche differentiated itself with its ‘Your A to Z’, GLS Educational Supplies, Lyreco and Galt catalogues.
