BPIF member wins at business awards
BPIF members and creative company Noted in Style scooped the Small Business Award at the Ashford Business Awards on 30th November, beating off stiff competition from other local enterprises such as Simply Ice Cream, South Timber & Damp and Colin Bat Removals.
The award was based on overall company performance, growth and business planning, making it a tough category to be in and with such a large amount of entries, judges described the end competition between shortlisted nominees as “a very difficult choice”.
A successful small business based in Folkestone, Noted in Style handcraft bespoke stationery and packaging for the corporate market and are experts in branding notebooks with a particular focus on the traditional techniques of debossing and foil printing. Exhibiting passion and engagement with their staff, the company has grown from one person to a team of fifteen skilled local individuals in the space of five years.
They are currently in the process of purchasing new warehouse premises in Folkestone to enable them to expand on their in-house production department and introduce more print and finishing equipment. Considering this is now their second award success (they took home the KITA Business Growth Award in 2015) it looks like there are exciting times ahead for Noted in Style.
Technology has revolutionised most industries, but none more than print. And it is technology that's driving the photo personalisation market across the globe. The introduction of the smartphone with its integrated camera has galvanised users into wanting to do much more with their images than just share them in cyberspace. Users are starting to realise that they can design and order an unparalleled number of personalised photo products from their mobile devices, using images that are stored on their phones.
