Based in the heart of the Kent countryside The Imaging Centre is a family run business established in 1991 which has now grown to twenty staff over five departments.
Quality is important to our business because we value our customers. We are committed to getting it right first time, every time and endeavour to offer the highest possible standards of quality and customer service.
The Oscars of the greeting card world
First introduced in 1995, these awards are named after Sir Henry Cole, who produced the first commercial Christmas cards over 150 years ago. He was also the first curator of the V&A museum, a pioneer of the Penny Post and instrumental in the organisation of the Great Exhibition in 1851.
The Awards are taking place at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London. We need a bit of time to get our glad rags on so the office will be shutting early at 4pm on Thursday 6th October.
We're looking forward to attending the awards and meeting up with all of our friends and colleagues and the very best of luck to all of our customers who are on the Awards Shortlist.
IC Simplicity is the Imaging Centre’s exclusive online web to print ordering system, which was launched at this year’s PG Live. Since the show we have had more than 30 card publishers going live on the system.
These customers have benefited in a number of ways most notably in the reduction of turnaround times, accuracy and stock management while still receiving the same high quality product they always have.
We believe that using IC Simplicity will give benefits to all card publishers. With this in mind we have designed three levels of Simplicity to cater for publishers both large and small.
Simplicity has already produced nearly three quarters of a million cards, printing orders ranging in size from as few as 6 cards to over 10,000. We know this because the Simplicity system allows us to analyse the data. This means that as well as being an online ordering service, Simplicity is able to give you real information about your products.
To find out more about how IC Simplicity could benefit your business or to arrange a visit so you can come and see it working, contact us on 01622 871449 or email email@example.com
