In-house production

Whether it’s processing voter registration and annual canvass or poll cards and ballot papers, we have the capability to
achieve standardised output from many variable forms of data from all leading elections software providers.

Our complete in-house production capability includes design, printing, personalisation and dispatch, combined with a fully
secure data handling facility. We never out-source the production of any items which eliminates the risk of confidentiality
breach or communication breakdown.

We pride ourselves on our ability to meet very tight and immovable deadlines. Our sophisticated mailing systems can
adapt to very high or low volumes always with the same result – on time delivery without exception.
