Chris Geer, Chair, and the members of the Stationers’ Company WarrantsCommittee have announced they are to be flexible and accept applications for the Stationers' Company Warrants scheme until the end of December 2020.
This recognises that, as well as the many additional challenges that companies have faced this month, the various levels of COVID-19 restrictions across the UK have further exacerbated the difficulties.
Companies now have until 31st December, therefore, to apply for the Warrants scheme although if lockdown restrictions tighten even further the Committee is prepared to extend that flexibility into early 2021.
The Warrants recognise the hard work, research and quality that companies in the communications and content industry put into their products and services.
The scheme is open to anyone in our industry sectors. You do not have to be a member of the Stationers’ Company to apply just able to demonstrate that your company has a product, products or service that stands out. It doesn’t have to be new but does have to denote quality as the Warrants are granted as a mark of recognition to highlight excellence.
Applications for the Warrants are assessed on a set of criteria including original design and high-quality manufacturing/production techniques as well as factors such as appropriate and sustainable packaging and relevance to the industry or market sector. Current and previous recipients include Office Power, Brown Fox, Collins Debden, Manuscript Pen Company, Gopak and Victor Stationery.
The application form is available to complete and submit online from the Stationers’ Company website https://www.stationers.org/company/engagement-with-our-industries/warrants-scheme/warrants-application and the new closing date for applications is 31st December 2020.
Alternatively, you can request an email copy of the Application form and the terms and conditions from the Chair of the Warrants Committee Chris Geer at firstname.lastname@example.org
