A Print Evangelist is someone who is enthusiastic about the print industry, a print perfectionist and someone who sees creative potential in all print projects.
It takes many years of experience to gain enough knowledge to become a Print Evangelist, but with 17 years under her belt, owner of Essential Print Services, Yvonne Gorman, can safely call herself just that;
“What I love MOST is knowing that the items I have printed are working REALLY HARD for my customers. To achieve this I discuss my clients’ requirements and help them plan what they really need.
I find out who their print is aimed at and how to get it to the right people. I can help work out postage costs and the all-important follow-up to any mail shots. I can suggest some ideas you might never have considered.
Free Print Audit. If you, or a contact of yours, wants to check that they’re getting the best value for your printing, give me samples of all your existing literature and I’ll give you a comparative quote with ideas of how to reduce costs AND improve the effectiveness of the products.”
Yvonne is a fully-fledged entrepreneur of a Pride Park-based business, Essential Print Services. She produces creative and effective print work at affordable prices, with quality service. She works with some of the most high profile SME’s and start-up companies within the local area, helping them make the most out of their marketing budget.
Over the past 15 years, Yvonne has worked for a variety of design agencies and print houses. She always had an hands-on approach for print work but also had an influence in the sales strategy for each of these employers. Using a multitude of sales methods, Yvonne always looked for ways to improve her skills with various seminars and workshops. She found that her mixture of common sense, genuine interest and unconventional ways of selling tends to work the best. And now, with her business venture; Essential Print Services, she can put all those years of experience into practice.

Yvonne is involved in a number of networking events and groups, so if you are new to networking, she would be very happy to invite you along as her guest and show you the ropes.
“I can honestly say Yvonne has all the attributes that make a successful entrepreneur: flare, confidence, focus, a desire to impress when responding to enquiries and orders, a willingness to help others, good leadership and most of all a hard working ethic. In a relatively short space of time she has started a business and established it as well known for quality service. She is also generous with her time and effort supporting others in business and the locality in which she works; a real asset to our Derby business community.” commented Martin Jinks from Nelsons Law.
