Greeting card publisher, Paper Salad has been crowned Business of the Year in the Stockport Business Awards.
The Romily-based company was one of three finalists in the award category for local businesses with a turnover £1m-£3m. It was up against two recruitment firms, Jobwise and Odin Recruitment.
Commenting, Karen Wilson and Claire Williams, co-owners of Paper Salad, who attended the awards event, which took place at Edgeley Park earlier this week said: “It felt really good to receive the award, especially as so many members of the team were there too, as it really is a team effort.”
This latest award continues Paper Salad’s winning streak as the publisher scored a hat trick in The Louie Awards, the US equivalent of The Henries in July. (While The Henries awards are for greeting card ranges, the Louie awards are for individual greeting cards.)
The company won the coveted Birthday General ($5 and below) category with a balloon design from its Hunky Dory range; the Get Well/Feel Better award ($5 and below) with a design from its Gold Dust range as well as the Children’s Card award.
With Paper Salad designs reaching the finals in no less in nine categories of The Henries (six of the publisher’s ranges, two in collaboration with Emotional Rescue and a licensed giftwrappings collection with Glick), the pressure is on for tomorrow night’s award event to see if the ‘purple patch’ continues!
