Judges were looking for excellence throughout the display-stand lifecycle: highest-quality print, innovative construction, best-in-class manufacturing techniques, in-situ effectiveness and outstanding customer service. Not much then. Luckily, Augustus Martin is an old and experienced hand, having won this category three times in the past five years.

The London printer made it four wins with print for Bumble & Bumble, Disney’s Finding Dory, Aldi fireworks and Halfords. The latter involved a fun but complex and detailed cardboard-engineered camper van. It delighted the judges: “The camper van in particular was innovative and ambitious and really pushed the boundaries of 3D engineering,” said one. Another added: “Impactful is the only way to describe this entry.”

The White Stuff was the right stuff, according to judges who hailed this “beautiful, real standout element of the entry”. The Newcastle-based printer worked on two White Stuff products, a Promo Library Refresh and ‘Time Flies’ spring promotion for 120 stores. The aim was to bring depth and creativity to shop windows and Imprint did just that with themes around vintage grandmother clocks and flying bugs. Products included a 3D tree in blossom and double-sided 2m-high self-cling trees.
