What does it take for your business to care about the environment?

ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard, ISO 14001 Certification
A wholesome seasonal slice from the Irongate archives


HoVIS Nottingham was looking to create a goody bag of branded promotional items to give to their staff as a thank you at Christmas and enlisted Irongate’s help. Having presented a number of different sample products and options which we thought would be well received by recipients and which would also complement the HoVIS logo and branding, they decided to go with a cotton shopper bag, an Americano take-away mug, a trolley coin and an Olympic themed 2012 desk calendar. We also arranged for the calendar and bag to be personalised to the 3 different branches of HoVIS – Nottingham, Leicester and Greenford. HoVIS also intended to add several packs of Mr Kipling cakes to each goody bag. Despite being given a tight deadline of just 4 weeks to produce 1,000 of each of the promotional items we delivered into HoVIS well in time for Christmas.  So at 30 October we are ready to satisfy your Christmas 2012 branded promotional needs.


“I can genuinely say that from the start to finish of this project, the level of customer service I received was second to none. Irongate provided me with ideas and samples of products and they because of the tight turnaround time, they kept me up to date at every stage. Plus, they went above and beyond what I had asked originally asked of them by arranging to pack all of the bags with our cakes which saved me and my team a lot of time. I will definitely be promoting Irongate to other departments throughout the Premier Foods Group.”   Site Secretary, HoVis, Nottingham.

Want to save up to 60% on your business mailing costs?



With our IG Mail solution, sending your business letters has never been easier, quicker or more cost-effective. In fact, it can save your business as much as 60% on its current office mail costs.
In a typical business, the majority of posted documents are created in-house, which requires a number of processes all of which incur cost and time, using expensive resource and assets, e.g. people, post rooms, franking machines etc. Additionally, due to the lack of volume, limited discounts are available so higher postage costs are paid. This method can also raise issues around consistency of documentation, presentation and confidentiality.
IG Mail solves all of these problems by enabling your business to create and proof letters online, which are then centrally printed and posted – a much quicker and cost effective process than traditional mail creation and postal methods.
It’s simple; a user in the business uploads their Word document or PDF, along with their database of addresses, chooses their posting date and submits their mailing to us. We then print, insert the documents into an envelope and post the letters direct. You can submit your mailings in any quantity, any time 24/7. There are no set up fees, no software to download, no artwork fees, no contract and you can be up and running in just 2-3 days. It’s that easy and it’s fully secure as documents are encrypted and sent via a secure connection to a highly secure production centre.
Additionally, with all of your mail template files (invoices, payslips, reminders, appointment confirmations, employee communications, newsletters, everyday letters, marketing mail shots and general office mail) stored in your template library, you can control the quality of letters going out the door, whoever they are issued by.

Irongate Gains Coveted ISO standard

ISO27001 is relevant to all businesses thesedays, but especially in the print industry where we sometimes have to hold clients’ classified or sensitive data as part of our relationship with them. Increasingly we are finding that clients are asking that their business partners are IS027001-accredited. We can now demonstrate to our customers that we are committed to security and have the ability to handle their information in a secure manner. This is a crucial part of being seen as a trusted business partner.
Irongate is now registered to ISO 27001 (Information Security), ISO 9001:2008 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental).
