Directors John Foster and Stephen Power congratulated their team for the huge effort given to ensuring local authority electoral print and mail contracts were completed on time for the elections that were held on 6 May 2021.
“Following last year’s postponed elections, 2021 was always going to be a complex year in terms of electoral print and mail providers, due to the number of elections, plus the huge increase in postal votes,” said John Foster, Managing Director at Print Image Network.
“Luckily, we have built a specialist team who has extensive experience in print and mail and an excellent understanding of the legislation surrounding electoral printing and mailing, which means we can work in partnership with our customers to help achieve objectives. The team has truly risen to the challenge this year.” He continued.
Print Image Network works with local authorities from across England and Wales and so has had experienced Local, Police and Crime Commissioner, Welsh Assembly, Greater London Authority and Mayoral Elections in 2021.
The team has handled hundreds of data files and checked hundreds of poll cards, ballot papers and postal votes over the past couple of months.
Stephen Power, Services Director commented. “We work to stringent processes and to fixed timetables to ensure every production deadline of a client’s election is met. We are exceptionally proud of our team that has worked incredibly hard to ensure all client’s needs have been met.”
He continued, “We hold the Customer Service Excellence Standard and therefore going the extra mile for clients is second nature to every member of our team.”
Simon Milnes, Production & Commercial Manager at Print Image Network who manages the specialist account management team said. “Our account managers are highly skilled and have built up great relationships with our local authority clients. They understand their individual requirements perfectly.”
Print Image Network helped several councils that encountered delivery issues from other printers in the run up to the 2021 elections.
