HIGH QUALITY PRINTING ON YOUR DOORSTEP – AT COMPETITIVE PRICES
Piccolo Press Is One Of Those Wonderful Highland Businesses That Defy All The Odds.
The Nairn print and design specialist begins 2012 as the “UK Social Stationery Printer of the Year”, having beaten off competition from all the other entries from within the UK, to claim the prestigious trophy, presented at the glittering Print Week awards ceremony in London, last October.
“We’re only a small Highland business with 12 staff; and we were the smallest minnow at the award ceremony. Our four entries of printing won first prize – and we’re very proud of that,” managing director Tim Honnor told Executive.
But Tim and his team of 12 hope that the accolade will remind local businesses that the highest quality of printing and design services are available to them right on their doorstep – and at competitive Highland prices.
We want to be more involved in the local market. Local businesses should be using local companies. They will be surprised that as well as offering good quality, we offer good value for money too.”
Piccolo Press has become something of a victim of its own success.
Established in 1985, initially in Culloden before moving to Nairn 16 years ago, the company has been producing beautiful stationery for some of the most prestigious businesses, organisations and individuals around the world.
However, its reputation for such fine work has meant that local customers often assume Piccolo Press does not cater for a home grown market. They wont want my business – Nothing could be ‘ further from the truth!
As printer designers Piccolo does all of its design work and printing in-house, which as a “one stop” organisation, immediately saves money.
“We love to hear from local businesses and discuss their needs,” stressed Tim. “In an entirely no obligation chat, we can advise a customer how to use their money to advantage. Often it is a clear classic design that is best – and is less expensive to print too! Never forget that your business stationery makes a statement about YOU. But also needs to be a clear statement that others will remember.
“Being an ex-submarine Captain, I run my company just like a submarine – albeit above water! We are a close knit team where everyone knows their job and gets on with it without any fuss”
As well as providing business stationery, Piccolo Press also produces stunning wedding stationery and corporate invitations for customers across the UK and further a field to America and Australasia.
But whether it is wedding or business stationery, Tim and his team hope 2013 will be the year that local businesses “Think Piccolo”.
