It’s that time of year where we like to look back on the year’s events. 2017 has been eventful year for CPI Colour, from competitions, to attending events and winning awards!
We love charitable events and we were lucky enough to attend Nordoff Robbin’s Annual Boxing Dinner once again earlier this year and had the privilege of printing their programme.
Award season is always a fun period for CPI, we like getting involved in all the top printing awards! The Print, Design & Marketing Awards kickstarted our spree of winning awards and we were named best Magazine & Catalogue for our work with Jigsaw. We were also thrilled to be the all-round ‘Supreme Awards Winner’ and win an award for ‘Marketing Collateral’ at this year’s Digital Printer Awards. Hello Magazine won this award for us and is one of our more exciting pieces of the year. It features a bright holographic cover and is colourfully printed on pink and green paper, a unique and fun brochure!
In July CPI staff across the business rallied together for ‘Football Shirt for Bradley Lowrey day’ to pay homage to six-year-old Bradley Lowery who was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was just 18 months old and sadly lost his battle against cancer. The money raised by every person who wore a football shirt on the day went to The Bradley Lowery Foundation, which aims to help children also facing a battle against this condition.
The successful installation of the exciting HP 10, 000, digital finishing kit, PUR paperback binding line and a new laminator has been the start of introducing a digital centre to our site in Croydon and is sure to put CPI at the forefront of printing technology!
We couldn’t wait to get our oven mitts on in September to prepare baked treats for the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning by Macmillan Cancer Support. We stuffed our faces with toffee cake, homemade chocolate chip cookies and an array of tasty treats which went down a storm! We’re thrilled to contribute to the £21,065,912.00 Macmillan has raised to date!
Most recently we announced the winner of our Volume 3 competition which we launched back in August for students.
We held the presentation in our Shoreditch office in November, where the finalists attended as well as the judges to hear who would be crowned winner and presented with the long-awaited cash prize. The event was a huge success and everyone that attended thoroughly enjoyed.
On Friday we threw on our favourite Christmas jumpers to support Save the Children charity.
All in all, 2017 has been a busy but successful year and we look forward to seeing what 2018 has in store for us!
