Crown’s recipe below for the perfect direct mailer.
Welcome Bella! Our latest addition to the staff list. She’s a very content employee, a self starter who’s finding lots to keep her amused at work. She’s got bags of enthusiasm, and very confident for one so young. What do they say about industry in the future? – “All you need is a machine, one man and a dog. The machine does the work, the man feeds the dog and the dog makes sure that the man doesn’t touch the machinery. #Frenchbulldogpuppy
It’s Studio Manager, Jason in the 2016 Phyllis Tuckwell Santa fun run, held at Queens Avenue Playing Fields, Aldershot on the 11th December.
Apparently dressing as Santa does wonders for your running performance, as Jason found by bagging a 5k personal best. A great day was had by all with over 350 attendants all raising funds for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice based in Farnham, Surrey.
Director Robert Avery, started the business in the garage of his home in Godalming in 1976 and built the business over the years to what it is today, producing high quality printed materials for local businesses, as well as nationally.
Crown have continually invested in the latest technology to keep ahead of the game. In 2000 Crown went one step further by taking a decision to proactively address their corporate responsibility for the environment by achieving its ISO 14001, and in July 2003 received the Surrey Sustainable Business Award for Best Environmental Improvement.
More recently, Crown was again recognised for its innovative thinking and featured in the print industry press for being the first UK print company to use a chemical free plate making system to further enhance their environmental credentials.
When asked about his 40 years in business Bob Avery, Managing Director of Crown, commented “It’s not all been plain sailing, but I’ve learnt a lot along the way, gained a son-in-law and some grand-children, and met some wonderful people”.
Senior Account Manager Alison Ball says “Most of the staff at Crown have been here for over 20 years, and I can see why – the finished product is excellent, the clients are happy as a result, and so are the staff. It certainly makes my job a pleasure, as an Account Manager.”
In this anniversary year, Crown continues to look to the future with the acquisition of a higher resolution, digital press, and a die cutting and foiling machine that will appeal to businesses on a budget, that are wanting to make a splash with their marketing materials.
Jason, father of two, Studio Manager and expert in all things digital, and Alison, customer treat generator, and chief Account Manager both completed the Fleet Half Marathon on Sunday, with very respectable times.
Striving to be the best it can be, is at the heart of Crown’s ethic, so when the race became a subject of discussion, it was not long before ‘bets were laid’ and lycra donned for the challenge.
Crown have just taken delivery of a new digital press
Jason’s skill and attention to detail has always meant that Crown’s digital printing capability has brought out the best output from the machines that we have had, but now he’s flying…
Our new press offers higher definition colour with a sharper, brighter output with improved contrast. It has an inline spectrophotometer that helps deliver improved consistency and quality at almost double the resolution available to us in the past. And has even more adjustments that continue to excite and fascinate the team as they discover the new machine’s vast capability.
We can even overprint onto envelopes, now! I’m just waiting for the moment when Jason bounces into my office to report that it makes coffee too.
