Over the last 40 years ago, Chris Andrews Publications has sold over 20 million postcards, a million books, and ½ million calendars.
printing partners for the long haul
Just like his business, the relationship between Chris Andrews Publications and Holywell Press has stood the test of time. Chris reflects, “I met Peter Burrows [father of Ben Burrows, Holywell’s current MD], at a social event in Oxford about 30 years ago. We got on well and he started printing postcards, college prospectuses, local guidebooks, and calendars for us.
“Since then, our printing requirements have increased significantly, but there are three things I continue to value about Holywell Press:
• their attention to detail on every printing job
• the colour accuracy and quality of print
• the fact that they’re a local Oxford printer."
postcard printing at scale
Following an inevitable COVID-related lull, Chris Andrews’ postcard business picked up in 2022. Keen to test the print quality of Holywell’s new LE-UV lithographic press, Chris approached Holywell to print several thousand each of over 30 different postcard designs.
