Signature Gifts invests in Canon’s Océ VarioPrint i300 at Drupa Print Media Fair, Dusseldorf.

After finding the perfect printer to bridge the gap between the flexibility of sheet fed digital printers with the speed and efficiency of litho, Signature is proud to announce a new investment in Canon’s flagship high-speed sheet-fed inkjet press, the Océ VarioPrint i300. Signature Gifts are the first transactional company in the UK to acquire Cannons’ latest printing technology - the Cannon i300. It is Signatures' biggest ever single investment in CAPEX and reinforces our confidence in the personalised book market. Kevin Spindler, Managing Director and Co-owner of Signature said: “The VarioPrint i300 is made for our business – it’s high speed, high quality and given that every unit we produce is unique, a short production run is vital. We get the whole package with Canon – leading innovation from a proven supplier, and we’re excited to see the new opportunities that will come from it.” Before adding, “It enables us to further develop the personalised book market and build on our lead.” Craig Nethercott, Commercial Print Group Director, Canon UK, said: “We’re very proud to have worked with Signature Gifts for a number of years and this is an exciting next step in the technology they’ll be using. The VarioPrint i300 is proving to be a key product giving customers the opportunity to have the speed and capacity they require between our conventional high-end toner-based cut sheet printers and entry-level continuous-feed inkjet presses.” The printer is being fitted into a purpose built new factory Signature is currently building in Scotland.

Merging of Signature Gifts and PGUK

I am pleased to announce the creation of a new partnership! Please find attached a press release regarding the merging of PGUK with Signature Gift’s ceramic and engraving business to form a new manufacturing company called Signature PG. The company will be jointly owned by Mike Herbert and Kevin Spindler of Signature Gifts and Debbi Hancock of PGUK. Signature PG (SPG) will be a separate company from Signature Gifts, which will focus manufacturing on its’ core skill of print and books. SPG will be a manufacturing business for ceramics, engraving and embroidery. PGUK will cease. All sales from the two portfolios will be via Signature Gifts. We plan on retaining all manufacturing units. Stoke for ceramics, Luton area for print and books, and Wigtown Scotland for historic newspapers and newspaper books. We are thus keeping the specialist skills and benefits that each unit and area provides. Signature Gifts will therefore have access to the widest and most extensive personalised gift portfolio and as customers of ours, you will also benefit from this wider choice of products. All invoicing, sales/customer support and day to day management will be managed by Signature Gifts, creating a one stop shop second to none which can meet all your range needs Debbi Hancock and Kevin Spindler will oversee their respective categories. Debbi will be providing senior key account management and product development for all the ceramic engraving and embroidery portfolio, and Kevin Spindler will be managing all print and books. It is going to take us a few weeks to integrate the two portfolios and little will change for a month or two. For Signature Gift customers little will change, other than the addition of a fantastic new range. For PGUK we will ensure a smooth transition and only ask customers to switch supplier accounts to Signature Gifts once we have completed integration of back end systems. Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions or I can brief you more at Spring Fair. We are in hall 5 on stands A30 or M81, we hope to see you there! Yours Sincerely Kevin Spindler Director - Signature Gifts
