Elliott Baxter are delighted to be a Principle Sponsor for this years award, and as for the previous few years, we will again be sponsoring the Direct Mail Printer of the Year Category.
Winning a PrintWeek Award isn't easy - it's not meant to be, they are the highest accolades in UK print after all. But there are some simple steps you can take to give yourself the best possible chance.
Firstly, you need to enter. Obvious, I know, but you'd be surprised at the number of printers who like to complain that they "never win" but at the same time have never entered.
Secondly, you need to ensure that you send only the very best examples of your work.
Thirdly, read the rules carefully and make sure that you have submitted all the relevant information. You don't want to be eliminated from the competition on a technicality.
Finally, remember who's judging, your customers. PrintWeek assemble an august line-up of big name print buyers for the Quality Awards covering all of the major print disciplines and this is your chance to sell to them. Make sure your supporting citations explain exactly what makes you and the work you do so special.
Once you've done all this, you can sit back with confidence and wait for the shortlist in September.
