Pride Park print firm confirms new signings as part of an expansion plan.
Based on Pride Park in Derby, print “evangelists” Essential Print Services, are continuing their expansion plan by taking on a new “Print Angels”.
Fran Ellis, Emma Hough and Stacey Barradell are amongst the latest three signings for the firm. The new trio joins the squad of Print Angels at Essential Print Services, which – now in its seventh year of trading – is continuing to grow from strength to strength.
The company was set up in 2011 by Yvonne Gorman, who trained initially as a graphic designer over 20 years ago; “having the right people in your business is crucial. You need employees who understand that outstanding quality and amazing customer service is paramount. Printing is hard work and can be technically challenging so, what is also important to me, is that I have a team who can fun in the office and enjoy what they do – the space hoppers certainly help with that.”
“The new additions to the team is yet another step in the right direction. Our expansion plan is coming to fruition. I’d like to thank all the Print Angels for all their hard work and support – I’m excited and energised about what the future has in store for us,” Yvonne concluded.
“You have to be a certain calibre of person to be a Print Angel. You must have high standards, attention to detail and have the client’s best interests at heart, at ALL times. I’m confident that my new colleagues have all these attributes and more!” said Kate Aldridge, who has been with the firm now for over two years.
Yvonne herself is already a renowned business figurehead; named as one of a handful of “Leading Ladies” in the local press, appearing on ITV Central News, visited No. 10 Downing Street and is continuing her appointment as Small Business Saturday UK Champion. Her most recent accolade is the confirmation of her appointment as Non-Exec Director of the Inward Investment Agency; Marketing Derby, which is a supporter of PridePark.net.
