Shortlisted in the 2019 PrintWeek Awards!
The 2019 PrintWeek Awards are the greatest and most sought-after awards in the print industry. The Awards celebrate the power of print, and the judging panel is made up of more than 20 leading print buyers and experts in their fields and… we have been shortlisted for three awards. The winners will be announced on 21st October 2019 at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
It will come as no surprise that every year the PrintWeek ‘Trainee of the Year’ is guaranteed the single biggest cheer of the night, and we are extremely proud that Callum Cusack has been shortlisted for this prestigious award. Callum joined us as an Engineering Assistant in 2014, when he was 19 years old, before starting an apprenticeship scheme. As employers, it is always good to see young people develop, but we were extremely proud to be able to nominate Callum for this award. He has had to deal with many hurdles within his short career so far, but his outgoing personality and determination to succeed have made him a very likeable and respected character. We are very proud of him, and he and his manager are very much looking forward to attending on the night as guests of Heidelberg, sponsors of this category.
We have also been nominated for ‘Newspaper Printer of the Year’ for our Watford and Luton print sites. This award looks for printers that demonstrate outstanding colour printing on newsprint-based products, which as well as newspapers can also include promotional products and inserts – provided that they are printed on newsprint grades. Judges take into account the pressures of daily or weekly production, and will be looking for consistent quality of print and finishing as well as repro. Newspapers printed web offset, heatset, coldset or flexo can all be entered, so there is lots of competition.
We wish everybody the best of luck, and look forward to seeing you there on the night!
