All go at London Stationery Show

Henri Davis, the judges’ panel chairman said about the awards: “It is great to see companies and brands being recognised at these awards, and the number of entries steadily climbing year on year.  The time is takes to enter, and the effort of providing samples, is far outweighed by the benefit of getting your product in front of a fantastic line up of buyers and seeing your product on the New Product Display at the show.”
