Local company and Huddersfield-based member PrintPod has won the contract to design and print the marketing material for this year’s Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival.

The Huddersfield-based company was chosen not only for the quality of its environmentally friendly print, but also for its creative design skills. The festival, which will run from 7-10 August, is Yorkshire’s largest free food festival, last year attracting more than 100,000 visitors to St George’s Square over four days.

Karen Hobson of Huddersfield Partnership, who are tasked with organising and promoting the event, said that PrintPod’s design was chosen because it reflected the Partnership’s new brand which was a vibrant development of the brand that PrintPod established in 2010 for the festival’s 10th anniversary.

Director of PrintPod, Richard Armitage said: “Winning the Food and Drink Festival account is testament to the design skills offered by PrintPod, as well as our green credentials.”

He continued: “We believe we offer the ideal package of creative design and quality, efficient, environmentally friendly print at cost-effective prices. Our flexible process means that we don’t have to design to fit within the capabilities of our presses and we often win contracts on the strength of our design. The energy-saving and waste-reduction schemes at our print hub are good for the environment but they also help us keep our prices competitive.”

The Food and Drink Festival is not the only local organisation to turn to PrintPod for design and print: for the second year running the company has designed and printed the programme for the Honley Show, which takes place on 14 June.

It was also charged with the design and print of the brochures, posters, roller banners and a bespoke display banner for this year’s Huddersfield Literature Festival. Festival Director Michelle Hodgson said: “This is the second year we’ve used PrintPod, and while the company’s green credentials were an important factor, we were very impressed with the quality of the design, which worked effectively across a range of marketing material.”

For the past three years PrintPod has serviced the design and print needs of the Chamber of Commerce Annual Dinner, held every October at Cedar Court Hotel, Ainley Top. The design brief each year has been to create a particular look for the invitations and tickets, from black and diamonds in 2011 to the Olympics in 2012, when the speaker was gold medal-winning cyclist Ed Clancy. In 2013, the theme was Britain’s Got Talent and the design and print work included life-size celebrity cut-outs of the presenters, including Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Ant and Dec.

By offering creative design and expert advice on the best and most cost-effective approach for each print project, PrintPod is finding success in a competitive market. As well as point of sale and marketing tools such as brochures, flyers and business cards, the company is happy to be approached for one-off projects including bespoke and personalised items.
