Receiving a commendation last year, Windles Group has finally reclaimed the top spot in this category, last held by this printer in 2009.
The judges diverged on what they thought was the company's standout entry. For one it was Windles' Patchwork Collection Christmas cards.
The handmade-style cards were cold-foiled and overprinted in four colours on a B1 Heidelberg press on lick-coated Stucco board, and were proclaimed to be "excellent and hand-finished to a high standard."
Another judge declared that the best entry was the FC2 modern greetings cards and Typography Collection greetings cards, on which the "cold-foil technique was superb and the embossing, in all cases, excellent", and where the judge "loved the multicoloured birds".
Nonetheless all judges agreed that Windles Group was a highly deserving winner of this hotly contested title.

Again, the judges were divided on the entries but consistent in praise for Jamm. One judge was especially taken with Jamm’s Liberty Scarf Collection Notecards, which they said were of "good quality and great detail." Another praised Jamm’s Munch Exhibition Notecard Set for "excellent finishing consistency and very good matching on cards and carriers."
