This June, Stockport-based Print Image Network is celebrating 20 years of printing excellence and the administration of democratic processes.

Established in June 2000 by directors John Foster and Stephen Power, the award-winning electoral print and mail provider has worked with over 100 councils across the UK to deliver all types of elections and polls, supporting electoral teams through many legislative changes.

Starting life in Holdsworth Mill, Reddish, the team quickly grew with the addition of an office manager, head of elections, followed by several account managers who came from esteemed printing positions from across the North West.

After many years supplying local and national councils with electoral stationery for elections, canvass and registration, Print Image Network was acknowledged for its innovation in design, when it won the IPIA and Spotlight awards for its range of postal votes.

In 2009, Print Image Network moved to larger offices in nearby Stockport and expanded into non-statutory election services. Recognising a necessity for all types of organisations to have access to transparent, impartial, and trustworthy democratic processes, it launched UK Engage.

Managing Director, John Foster, commented on the anniversary. “We are excited about all that we have achieved in the last 20 years. From humble beginnings in Reddish, today both brands are well-known nationally.”

Services Director, Stephen Power added. “We are continuing to grow, expanding into new markets, collaborating with new partners and suppliers, and adding to our expert team. We pride ourselves on continually improving our democratic solutions, both print and online, and we are looking forward to the future and all the possibilities it brings.”

Although this year’s local & Police and Crime Commissioner elections were cancelled, our team has been working from home delivering the annual canvass for councils and other democratic processes, including helping customers with legislation on running AGMs during COVID-19.

If any Chamber members have an AGM and are unsure about how to run it during social distancing restrictions, they can contact the company to find out more.
