Based on Pride Park in Derby, print “evangelists” Essential Print Services, are continuing with their expansion plan by taking on a new “Print Angels”.

Fran Ellis, Emma Hough and Stacey Barradell are amongst the latest three signings for the firm. The new trio joins the squad of Print Angels at Essential Print Services, which now in its seventh year of trading, is continuing to grow from strength to strength.

The company was set up in 2011 by Yvonne Gorman, who trained initially as a graphic designer over 20 years ago; “having the right people in your business is crucial. You need employees who understand that outstanding quality and amazing customer service is paramount. Printing is hard work and can be technically challenging so, what is also important to me, is that I have a team who can have fun in the office and enjoy what they do – the space hoppers certainly help with that,” said Yvonne.

“The new additions to the team is yet another step in the right direction. Our expansion plan is coming to fruition and with the Print Angels’ support, I can now focus on our strategic vision and growing the business further. I’m excited and energised about what the future has in store for us,” Yvonne concluded.

So what do the Print Angels have to say?:

“I am working with a fantastic team in an exciting and bustling company, working on a range of projects each completely different from one another,” said Stacey Barradell, who joins the company to head-up the artwork studio.

“We work with a range of clients from all different industries, all with different requests and ideas. It is my job to ensure that the work that goes out represents our company to the highest standard and leaves our clients feeling delighted,” said Emma Hough, who Graduated at University of the Arts, London.

“Every day is different, and I enjoy the hustle and bustle in such a colourful environment. Its refreshing to work for a company that values its clients and staff with equal importance,” said Fran Ellis, who has been hired to support Yvonne and her fellow print angels with the day-to-day running of the company.

“You have to be a certain calibre of person to be a Print Angel. You must have high standards, attention to detail and have the client’s best interests at heart, at ALL times. I’m confident that my new colleagues have all these attributes and more!” said Katie Aldridge, who has been with the firm now for over two years.

Yvonne herself is already a renowned business figurehead; named as one of a handful of “Leading Ladies” in the local press, appearing on ITV Central News, visited No. 10 Downing Street and is continuing her appointment as Small Business Saturday UK Champion. Her most recent accolade is the confirmation of her appointment as Non-Exec Director of the Inward Investment Agency; Marketing Derby.

Derby Print Firm sponsors East Midlands Chamber Awards

Posted on: July 31st, 2018 by Yvonne Gorman No Comments

Based on Pride Park in Derby, Essential Print Services make professionals look professional, with their competitive prices, exceptional customer service and excellent quality print. So, when the opportunity arose to sponsor the East Midlands Chamber, Marketing Campaign of the Year, the print angels jumped at the chance, not just because they are East Midlands Chamber members but also, to spread their creative wings.

“Whether your business is experiencing a downturn or it’s working at full capacity, marketing is THE activity that should remain consistent. However, during hard times, marketing seems to be seen as an expense and it the first to go. When companies are really busy, marketing is the thing that gets forgotten. It’s really important to keep in the forefront of people’s minds, all the time that’s why we’re delighted to celebrate the importance of marketing by sponsoring this prestigious award,” explained Yvonne Gorman, Managing Director or Essential Print Services, Derby.

“To create a memorable marketing campaign takes time, energy and of course, investment. If clients choose to use print as their marketing mix, we guide them through the process from start to finish, even down to the mailing,” Yvonne added.

“There are three worthy finalists; Paskett Public Relations, Future Proof Films and QUAD – we’re fans of all three so, we do not envy the judges’ task to choose a winner. We’re looking forward to presenting the winner with their accolade on the night.”

If you’re thinking of your next printed marketing campaign but don’t know where to start, give us a call on 01332 418377 for an informal chat.
