Print Image Network is once again exhibiting at the annual AEA Conference in Blackpool, 2 -5th February 2020. As a leading provider of electoral print solutions, we have supported the Conference and the AEA for many years. Once again will be on hand to offer help and advice to electoral administrators from councils across the UK on all aspects of electoral print and mail.
The agenda promises a full schedule including fringe events, plenary sessions, and workshops, not to mention the exhibition where we will be meeting delegates and customers at Stand 3 from Sunday afternoon.
Providing no fewer than 80 councils across the UK with electoral print solutions, we still have print capacity for the May polls. 2020 sees Police, Commission and Crime Commissioners elections in England and Wales, as well and local and mayoral elections – we welcome the opportunity to discuss these elections with local authority delegates attending the event.
With such as busy year last year and so many potential changes in 2020, we will be on hand to talk to delegates about how they found 2019, plus how we can help support them through 2020 changes concerning their print and mail requirements.
On the customer service front, we have recently (January 2020), achieved another year’s compliance for the Cabinet Office’s Customer Service Excellence Standard. A big factor in our success is our staff, which year-on-year is praised for the way we support electoral administrators through election periods. Throughout Conference, every member of our account management team will visit The Grand to speak with customers and other delegates. We have a growing team of experienced account managers that help councils through busy, and sometimes complex, election and canvass periods. You can see some of the wonderful comments we received following the 2019 elections by downloading our Customer Survey results from last year>>
We have lots to discuss, so please feel free to come along and speak with the team at Stand 3. You can enter our chocolate hamper competition and you could win a Waitrose Hamper which is our raffle prize at the Annual Dinner. We look forward to seeing you at Conference!

The Print Image Team
Following a busy year of elections, Print Image Network Ltd has today issued its annual online customer satisfaction survey to council customers across the UK.
Many councils had local elections in May and all councils were involved in the Snap General Election, which was called for 8 June 2017. With tight timescales, electoral print and mail specialist, Print Image Network was responsive to the task and ensured that all council customers deadlines were met and poll cards, postal votes and ballot books were delivered, in advance of the country’s vote.
With an impressive track record when it comes to customer satisfaction, Print Image Network is the only electoral stationery printer to hold the Cabinet Office’s Customer Service Excellence standard. The results of the questionnaire will be reported to the CSE Assessor for our assessment in January 2018.
If you are a council customer of Print Image Network, look out for your online survey which will be delivered to you by email. As with previous years, Print Image Network will donate £5 to one of its three chosen charities for customers who complete the online survey and contribute to the company’s continuous improvement.

The UK will vote on whether to remain in the EU on Thursday 23 June 2016. With the EU campaign already underway, Print Image Network is already scheduling electoral printing requirements for local authorities across the UK, following the announcement.
If you work in electoral services and want to discuss your postal vote, poll card or ballot paper printing requirements for June, please contact us today or come and see us at the AEA Conference & Exhibition.
With so much speculation about the date of the EU Referendum, it’s little wonder that local authorities are confused about when to schedule their printing requirements for ballot papers, postal votes and poll cards.
Although talks with the European Council President failed to secure an early deal, reports suggest that further talks will prove crucial ahead of the EU Summit on 18-19 February 2016. Therefore, the EU Referendum could still happen as early as 23 June.
Despite the speculation, the date for the referendum remains unknown, with debate surrounding every possible option. News articles continue to present conflicting views. One report has suggested that the EU Referendum is not at the top of the agenda for EU leaders, eluding to the fact that a deal may not be reached later this month.
However, the Government’s recent motion, which sets out some of the rules of the referendum i.e. the length of the campaign, funding and the timing of the count, plus on going discussions with the European Council President, strengthens reports that Thursday 23 June is still the favourite contender.
Whatever the outcome of the EU Summit during 18 -19 February, Print Image Network is advising local authorities to plan for the soonest possible eventuality. If you’d like to discuss electoral printing for the EU Referendum please contact us today on 0161 209 4800 or email email@example.com
Alternatively, we will be at Stand 3 at the AEA Conference, 28 February – 2 March 2016, where our team will be happy to discuss the EU Referendum.

As Print Image Network Ltd, one of the UK’s leading providers of Local Authority electoral printing services, is busy preparing customers for the IER transition, there has been little time to sit back and reflect on some of the positive feedback received by customers following the recent European and local elections.
2014 has been a challenging year for Local Authorities across the UK and councils and suppliers alike have worked together to ensure the election period was managed in a timely and professional manner. During this period Print Image Network has supported customers by printing long ballot papers, poll cards, postal packs and ancillary products such as wristbands and queue cards, to ensure polling stations were equipped to deal with the electorate come Election Day.
“Print Image Network works tirelessly to ensure customers receive a first-class service, it is one aspect of our service of which we are most proud,” says John Foster, Managing Director. “Customers have expressed to us the pressure that has been felt due to combined elections, delayed canvass and IER, at Print Image it is our philosophy to assist our customers as much as possible to help alleviate some of the pressure felt during particularly busy periods.

The feedback received included comments such as “The overall printing of poll cards, postal packs and ballot papers has been first-class” and “The printing was excellent, delivered on time and the service was exemplary.” Comments that were further appreciated by Service Director, Steve Power, who added “We knew 2014 would be a challenging year, the staff at Print Image worked extremely hard to deliver jobs under extreme pressure, so to receive these comments has been extremely rewarding to the management and staff at our company.
