Deadline to apply for Stationers’ 2022 Warrants extended until 30th November 2021
Chris Geer, Chair, and the members of the Stationers’ Company Warrants Committee would like to thank those who have already expressed interest in the Stationers’ Company 2022 Warrants programme and are pleased to announce an extension to the deadline for entries for those that need some extra time. This recognises that, many companies are still adapting to the “new normal” and so companies now have until 30th November 2021 to apply.
The award of a Warrant reflects the hard work, research and quality which companies put into their products and services. After a very successful 2021 Warrants programme, the Stationers’ Company is looking forward to promoting this accolade and the companies which receive it in 2022.
The scheme is open to companies in any sector of the communications and content industries. Membership of the Stationers’ Company is not essential to apply but applicants should be able to demonstrate that the product or service being entered (whether existing or new) stands out in terms of its quality as the Warrants are granted as a recognition of excellence. Companies can put forward applications for more than one product or service.
Chris Geer, Chair of the Warrants Committee states: “We are excited to be launching the 2022 Warrants. As businesses are adapting to the “new normal” following the challenging times of the last 18 months, we continue to see many companies providing products and services beyond their usual remit. As in 2021, we believe that this year again, more than ever before, those businesses should be recognised for the quality products and services they offer. Warrants are important in highly-competitive markets, as they offer the holder a valuable USP and something to differentiate them from the rest of the crowd. We want businesses to come forward and shout about the great things they are doing”.
If you have a product or service that fits this description, we welcome your application which you can submit online from the Stationers’ Company website https://www.stationers.org/company/engagement-with-our-industries/warrants-scheme/warrants-application with the closing date for applications being 30th November 2021.
Alternatively, you can request an email copy of the Application form and the Terms and conditions from the Chair of the Warrants Committee, Mrs Chris Geer at [email protected]
Products and services awarded the Stationers’ Company Warrant are of a quality which results from the hard work and research which went into their development and recipients have noticed and commented on the benefits of being able to use the Warrant.
Nigel Busby, Managing Director of Incontrol Marketing said “Sometimes it's just nice to get some recognition for the hard and hopefully good work that you and your team do. I'm very pleasantly surprised at just how much kudos you get from the award of the Warrant, and then you realise the luminaries that have trodden the path before you, so we are truly standing on the shoulders of giants. Thanks to everyone involved, a great honour.”
Iain Bullock, Managing Director of Renz (UK) Ltd commented “Being awarded a Stationers’ Warrant for the Renz AIR2COLOR Air Quality Meter raised the profile and volume of sales for this new product venture from Renz considerably. Of course, we proudly added the Stationers Company Warrant Seal to all our marketing collateral immediately, which added considerable kudos to the product. Our overseas sales were certainly boosted by this impressive seal of credibility from the UK.”
Lewis Stevenson, Managing Director of Leeming Brothers said “Being awarded the Stationers’ Warrant of Excellence was a big deal to Leeming Brothers. Aside from receiving the recognition of our abilities in print, which was great on its own, it has also helped us on a business level. It is a point that we mention to our customers and is included on our website and on our emails. When customers see that we are award winning, and especially an award that has been given to us by the Stationers’ Company who are seen to be an authority on print in general it gives them more confidence that we are masters of our craft and can be trusted to produce a fantastic job for them. Whether it be corporate, personal or wedding work, it has helped us secure more clients across all of these fields.”
Chris Geer, Chair of the Stationers’ Warrants Committee said “It is good to be able to recognise top quality products and services throughout the Communications and Content Industry and to know that the Stationers’ Warrants in themselves are of benefit to the recipients”.
