We are delighted to announce that, once again, The Sherwood Group have won the ‘Social Stationery Printer of the Year’ title at this year’s PrintWeek Awards, while our sister company, Loxleys secured a high commendation in the same category.
Having received nominations for two categories (social stationery and packaging), The Group’s reputation for award winning print has been further enhanced thanks to its excellent production of Santoro Pop’n’Rock and Swing cards, The Art File and Nigel Quiney cards, as well as a conference menu for the Greeting Card Association, designed in-house by the Smartcentre team.
All entries were judged by some of the most influential figures within the print industry. The judges were looking for consistent print, finishing and repro, and commented that Sherwood showed “a diverse range of samples with impressive details!”
Carl Pledger at Nigel Quiney Publications added: “We were overjoyed with our new Designers Corner range. The Sherwood Group have done an exceptional job with the print and an array of intricate finishes, creating the high end feel this product deserves!”
The Sherwood Group entered the greeting card market in 1991, and proudly printed Christmas cards for the Royal Household, charity sector and many publishers. By 1997 Sherwood produced up to a million cards a day and in 1996 it was awarded ‘PrintWeek Prism Greeting Card Printer of the Year’.
Jeremy Bacon, Group Chief Executive commented: “The Greeting Card market is one of the most innovative and demanding markets to operate in, and to be recognised again as the leading greeting card manufacturer by our peers is fantastic news. Congratulations must also go to our sister company Loxleys for the fact that their entry was highly commended.”
Anna Fawcett, Marketing Manager at Sherwood added: “To receive this award is a high accolade for all our staff. We would like to thank our customers for their support and we are excited about continuing to build strong, long-term working relationships”.
The Sherwood Group were also shortlisted for ‘FMCG Packaging Printer of the Year’ for the fourth consecutive year and our strategic partner, KMD Company, were shortlisted in the category ‘Luxury Packaging Printer of the Year’.
