New branding service offered

A long-established Shrewsbury retailer is now offering a new branding service to private and business customers.

Write Here, an award-winning independent shop in the High Street, can now personalise its books and pens.

The service will complement the store’s wide range of writing instruments, artists’ materials, stationery, cards, gifts and games.

Write Here proprietor John Hall said: “We have been supplying local companies with high quality stationery and pens for some time and so decided to enhance this by offering a corporate branding service.

“This means we can print a business title, logo or slogan on pens and notebooks. This gives the products a very professional and stylish appearance for in-house use or for corporate gifts.

“We have also invested in an embossing machine for smaller, private orders which we can carry out in-house. The service is really popular with people buying our high quality journals for milestone birthdays or occasions such as a wedding, graduation or anniversary as they can be personalised with names, dates and special messages.”

Roderick Marsden, chairman of Shrewsbury’s Travail Employment Group, said that he had ordered a selection of Lamy pens and Leuchtturm notebooks for his top clients and appointees.

He commented: “We have been looking for something different to give as a business gift for a while… none of the national suppliers seemed to present the right image for us.

“We went to Write Here for advice as we always try to buy locally to help our local community economy.

“We also have a passion about quality and practicality of products and found that this was met with equal vigour by Write Here.

“John gave good advice and practical solutions. Probably the best quality business gift we have encountered!”
