Customer Services Team of the Year: Impress Print Services

The customer is king, but Impress wears the crown. Not only has the company, based in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey, restructured and appointed a customer-service manager and assurance champion, it has created a comprehensive appraisal system, training for managers and department supervisors and a culture that encourages staff to use emotional intelligence to assess projects.

Trainee of the Year: Stephen Dando, Dayfold

Ten minutes after handing his CV in at its base in Dorset, and Dayfold Print was in touch. Two years later PrintWeek Awards judges are in touch. Stephen started on the cylinder, cutting and creasing, before moving to the guillotine, digital finishing and hot foiling.

Company of the Year: ProCo

This was the year ProCo changed its business model – and won PrintWeek’s most coveted awards category as a result.

SME of the Year: CS Labels

CS Labels has enjoyed a fast ride this year. A £3.25m investment programme announced in early spring included the purchase of a purpose-built 1,850sqm factory and a raft of new equipment.

Bespoke Digital Printer of the Year: Screaming Colour

Judges were looking for short-run, high-value brochures, packaging and presentation packs. They found “a standard across the whole category that was stunning, but this entry in particular was amazing.”

Newspaper Printer of the Year: Mortons Print of Horncastle

The Stratford upon Avon Herald is almost 160 years old. But time stops for no one and the pressures of weekly, or daily, production are as demanding for old timers like the Herald as they are for relative newbies such as The Essential Journal, launched in Liverpool in 2014.

Point-of-purchase Printer of the Year: Imprint Group part of Pureprint Group

White Stuff was the right stuff for last year’s highly commended entrant. The Newcastle-headquartered printer created a ’Run Wild’ window campaign for the fashion chain of 120 shops.

Fine Art Printer of the Year: Pureprint Group

Aesthetics, beauty, perfection. As this category suggests, judges look for prints, books or catalogues demonstrating the highest levels of origination and print. Pureprint rose to the task.

FMCG Packaging Printer of the Year: Curtis Packaging

Typical FMCG packaging has a short shelf-life but fast turnarounds, tricky consistency demands and runs that can be achingly long. Curtis Packaging in Redhill surmounted them all with what one judge said were “samples that pushed boundaries of what I thought possible”.
