Online print shop launch with York Against Cancer’s Christmas cards collaboration

We partnered with local charity, York Against Cancer, to create a beautiful range of bespoke Christmas cards that are available to order exclusively online now.

The range consists of five York Winter scenes including The Shambles, Precentor’s Court, and The Minster all captured by local photographer, Chris Shepherd. Cards can be customised with a personalised message, signature or company logo via our new online print shop to make your card(s) special this Christmas whilst supporting a brilliant charity.

Simon Pirie, our Sales Manager, said:
“We have worked with York Against Cancer to print Christmas cards on behalf of corporate clients in previous years. We thought this year was an ideal opportunity to collaborate with the charity and use our new online print shop to help make the process easier for supporters who want to have their cards printed with their personal details.”

Small or large orders can be made online on our print shop, that is part of our £100,000 investment, allowing us to reach customers directly and make ordering unique printed items easier.

Julie Russell, General Manager at York Against Cancer, said:
“Chris Shepherd’s Christmas cards are always very popular with companies and individuals who want to personalise their cards. With Wood Richardson’s new online print shop, it will be much more efficient when ordering cards. We are very grateful for their help and we hope this will encourage more people to support the charity by buying their Christmas cards this year.”

Alan celebrates 40 years in business

Rewind 40 years and you will find a youthful Alan cutting paper and prepping it for print – one of the most important jobs as a Guillotine Operator. He began his journey with us at our Kings Square office in York and was promoted to Bindery Supervisor.

Now fast forward 480 months, 2,080 productive weeks, 14,600 energetic days, 350,400 hours and 21,240,000 minutes of service which has rewarded Alan with Sales Director role and his very own office that he fondly shares with a cupboard.

We look forward to many more years with Alan and are thankful for his lack of ambition to leave the company!
