About the award:

About the sponsor:

Kall Kwik Farnham are a Print and Design company based in Farnham and we have been here for 34 years.  We still have clients that came to us for their printing when we were first established! We used to be part of the Kall Kwik franchise but became an independent business 7 years ago and pay a license fee for our name.  We have considerably changed the business over 34 years and we are able to both print and design everything from business cards and brochures to fitting vehicle graphics, to exhibition stands, to outside signage, to promotional gifts and clothing.   We have constantly invested in new machinery to ensure we produce high quality print on a wide range of materials from paper and card to vinyl, PVC, pop up banner material, canvas and acrylic prints.   We pride ourselves on our customer service and attention to detail.   We work with both large corporates and individuals, with students and staff at UCA as well as many local business and charities.   We have a large base of clients many of whom have been with us for many years. We have also grown our business year on year for the past 10 years.   We have a solid team of staff many of whom have been here for a long time including two graphic designers, an apprentice, print finisher, business manager and directors of the business.  Our main aim is to make our clients businesses look good in print and they do.

As a close knit business we pride ourselves in offering a quality, professional and quick service to our clients.  As a print and design company we have seen a great number of our colleagues and competitors go out of business in these difficult times.  We have to compete now with large Internet companies who offer a cheap, quick but not always quality service at prices as a local business we are unable to meet. Therefore we have worked exceptionally hard to ensure we offer a personalised service to all our clients both large and small. We enable our clients to touch and feel the media on which their print will be printed, we offer colour proofs, our clients can sit with our designers to discuss their exact needs and we have continually invested in new printing techniques and machinery. Many of our clients cannot believe just how many different products we can print in house in Farnham and how quick our turnaround can be.  

At Kall Kwik Farnham we are so proud of all our achievements.
