The Print Angels at Essential Print Services are celebrating achieving two of the best months in the businesses’ history.

The print company, based on Pride Park in Derby, achieved a 20%+ increase in sales in both September and October compared to previous months in the current financial year. These are the best two months since the company was founded in 2011 by Yvonne Gorman. Since then Yvonne has built her business to be one of the leading print companies in the East Midlands, having now had more than 1,600 customers, most of which return on a regular basis.

Yvonne commented: “For the past four years, we have achieved a 5% year-on-year sales increase, so to see this leap to 20% for recent months is amazing. We were absolutely thrilled when we saw the 20% increase in September, and then even more so when it continued into October! We don’t want to tempt fate, but November is looking promising too so hopefully it’s a trend that is set to continue! It all of course couldn’t be possible without my amazing team of Print Angels and all of our wonderful customers.”

From business cards, brochures and leaflets, through to folders, flyers, banners and promotional items, like mousemats USB sticks, mugs and pens, Essential Print Services can handle anything from conventional full-colour print to some of the most bizarre print requests. The team can also assist with the design and checking of artwork, and a 12-Point Artwork Check is carried out on every order, completely free of charge, to ensure absolute perfection and the highest quality possible.

A52 Wyvern Transport Improvement Scheme Update – 22nd November 2019

Overnight works on Wyvern Way will be completed as planned by 6.00am on Saturday 23rd November. Despite the issues with flooding and heavy rain, most of the planned work has been completed over this two week period of night-time working. Work will continue in the daytime over the next few weeks with a view to being able to increase capacity on the network by 6 December.

Work will continue on site on the concrete abutments for the new footbridge. In preparation for the replacement footbridge, temporary works will commence towards the end of November.  The pieces of the bridge will arrive on site from early December.
