So excited to report that we’re in the finals of, not one, but three Henries’ award categories! Not only are we one of 12 publishers to be nominated for a Best Service to Independent Retailers, we are also in the running for two product awards, “Best Male” for our Bold as Brass range and “Best Occasions & Relations” for Life & Soul. What’s more our sister company Clare Maddicott Publications has also been nominated for a Henry Cole Classic award for its perennially popular Harold’s Planet range.
Apparently over 14,000 cards were entered into this year’s Henries and these were judged by an impressive Judging Panel, made up of over 50 top retailers (including buyers from Paperchase, Scribbler, WHSmith, Tesco, Fenwick, National Trust, Longacres Garden Centre, Funky Pigeon, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Klondykes Garden Centre, Moonpig as well as many leading independents). So we are feeling rightfully proud to have made it through to the finals!
We now have to wait until the award ceremony being held on the 5th October before we know whether we have won or not, but in the meantime we wanted to say a big thank to all our customers, suppliers and colleagues for making this possible.
