Alvis TestimonialsOver the years we’ve worked with some great clients, here’s what a few of them had to say…

Dear Ian and Team,
Thank you for all the help and support you have given us in producing the book.
I really appreciate all you have done to make the project reality and I’m sure
members will be delighted with the result.

Kris Clancy

Dear Ian,
Over the last few months we have presented you with several projects cum challenges and as usual wanted the completed print by return! I can honestly say that no matter what the challenge you have handled them in a professional manner and as usual taking the time to check and double check our requirements.
These are great skills Ian, and as such we are extremely happy with your service. These sentiments are also echoed throughout the franchise network, and that is no mean feat!
Well done Ian and we look forward to more of the same in the future.

Many thanks Ian for a wonderful service, creating, organising and delivering my new practice receipt books all within one week!
They are great and doing the job perfectly.
I would highly recommend you.

As a hypnotherapist I need to make sure that I overcome a lot of myths and misconceptions in order to get my message across, and a uniformly professional appearance for my business cards and other printed material is fundamental to this. I have therefore been doubly fortunate to have met Ian Griffiths, and to have continued to use Alvis Print ever since.

Ian’s attention to detail is tremendous and unfailing. It’s not just spelling and grammatical mistakes but misplaced commas, mismatched hyphens and misaligned headings that are caught by Ian and queried in the way that has become his trademark.

Ian is one of the most courteous, thoughtful and generous people I have ever met, let alone done business with. As a case in point I asked him to produce some exterior signage for me, which was outside of his normal run of work. Not only did he take the time to fully understand what I needed but kept it in-house for me, spending his own time researching the best materials to use and then taking my design and transforming it into something far better than I had provided to him.

Alvis Print is a family business, and Ian’s utter reliability, outstanding customer service and technical knowledge and inventiveness are shared by everyone who works there. I said that I was doubly fortunate to have met Ian and used Alvis Print, and I am doubly fortunate because I regard him not just as a colleague but as a friend.

Good Morning lan,
The funeral went very well on Monday and everyone loved the ‘tribute’ we had put together. It looked amazing on the easel. I just wanted to say thanks so much for allowing the time to get this done. I really appreciated it.

Ian has just done a fantastic job for me printing some company folders that we are using when we go and present to bigger clients. I only wanted a very small quantity of these folders and felt sure that the quote would either be hideously expensive or Ian would just say “no thank you” to the job.

How wrong I was!! The quote was very competitive and far from Ian saying no, he actually took our artwork and improved it. When I saw the finished folders I was delighted, as the change that Ian had made really made the folders look fabulous and elevated them from just ordinary.

I will certainly use Ian’s services again and will recommend him to everyone I can. Thank you Ian, you are a pleasure to deal with.

Hi Ian
I am getting in touch to let you know that I officially retired on 31st.
I wanted to thank you for the support and the fabulous work that you have been able to do for us over the past few years. I appreciate that we often asked for things ‘above and beyond’ the norm and were always on the last minute. You were always very patient and always delivered the goods!

Please pass on my best wishes to everyone else. Our paths may still pass but I wanted to say thank you. It was a pleasure to work with you and the family.
Best wishes for the future.

Having spoken to Ian at length about new business cards that we require in the future on a Thursday afternoon, I returned to the office to find an invitation to attend an exhibition the following Tuesday, for which we would need 200 new cards.

We could only provide Ian with the artwork on Monday, and following a few tweaks, we finally agreed on a design on Monday afternoon. I received an email from Ian that evening to inform me that they were all printed, and ready for collection the following morning.

Having seen the quality of the print, and considering this was a temporary rush job, we were proud to hand these out to all the people who came to our stand that day. We even had many eyebrows raised and comments regarding the quality of the cards, a testament to your usual hard work and diligence.

I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any of my contacts, colleagues or friends, and we will be using you again for our future printing requirements.

Dan Challinor

I first spoke to Ian in August 2013 when I needed some stationery for my newly formed business. From the off it was clear that Alvis Print were a professional, friendly and highly skilled company who really valued customer service. The attention to detail that Ian put into my stationery was amazing, and he even suggested a printing technique for my business cards that would save me money over the technique that I had originally suggested. The quality of the stationery was first-class, the speed of turnaround was excellent and the service level was of a standard seldom seen in many businesses these days.

Alvis have also produced some presentation books for me, at extremely short notice (they printed them in the morning for a pitch I was doing in the afternoon). The booklets looked great, and the people I pitched to were very impressed.

Based on the service, skill and professionalism I have experienced working with Alvis Print, I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Nikki Robinson

I’m so pleased to have met Ian Griffiths of Alvis Printing to take over all my business stationery needs. The service of speed, experience, advice, quality and delivery was absolutely fantastic.
Thank you Ian.

As an independent IT consultancy and service provider, ensuring we provide consistently high levels of service and support to our customers is paramount to TekSure.

To support this goal we sought the services of Alvis Print to provide a quality printed audit document for our new audit service. To produce the audit booklet TekSure approached Alvis Printing for advice and ideas, and from the word go Alvis went above and beyond anything we have experienced from previous print suppliers.

Ian and the team from Alvis not only produced a superb quality booklet at short notice, they also diligently checked the document for errors and best layout – an unexpected bonus.
I sincerely thank Alvis Printing for the excellent advice, service and quick turnaround.

Needless to say, TekSure have no hesitation in recommending Alvis Printing and their printing services.

Alastair Cavanagh

Some of our clients are quite particular in the colour and style of the stationery that they use. So when one of our more “fussy” clients came to us wanting business cards printed I had no hesitation in going straight to Ian at Alvis Printing.

I knew that Ian, being so meticulous, would ensure that the business cards were the right pantone match as well as ensuring the quality of the card. The client was absolutely thrilled with the finished result – which is no mean feat to please someone as fussy as that!!

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Alvis Printing for all print work – there are many printers out there offering very cheap print, but the print and quality is very poor. With Alvis Printing the costs are fantastic for the high standard of print that you receive.

Nikki Griffiths
The Design Project

We engaged Ian a couple of months ago to help with our rebrand.

This was far from straightforward as we had to accommodate our head office and 32 franchised offices across England and Wales. Although the franchise shares our masthead and logo, each one has a separate address and contact details. This is no mean feat and Ian took it all in his stride, supplying us with samples to make sure the look, feel and quality were exactly what we were expecting.

We did not have one single query, moan or groan and that is practically unheard of in
Franchising. Everything was delivered on time and perfectly labeled for easy distribution.

We would not hesitate to recommend Ian and his team as he has pulled off the very neat trick of making something that is quite difficult look very easy.
Thanks again Ian

To all at Alvis
The excellent publication has now been circulated far and wide and is receiving high acclaim… and so it should!!
The Cheshire Cricket Board and in particular Terry and I wish to thank you most sincerely for all your considerable efforts in the production of all our printing requirements. You are a pleasure to work with.

David Sharp

Dear David,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, all your family and staff for the superb service you gave in presenting and printing my order for the company’s new image. During a stressful relocation you met all my deadlines and personally delivered the goods with a smile. I wish all my suppliers could measure up even halfway to your professional and personal service.

You can be assured of my repeat orders and thank you once again.

I would like to take this opportunity to provide a written testimonial for Ian Griffiths and his team from Alvis Printing Services. After being let down by our regular printing supplier, we turned to Ian two days before an important exhibition where The Coachworks were exhibiting.

Ian immediately understood what we needed and confirmed it wouldn’t be a problem to produce and deliver the goods in plenty of time. The following day, two people from Alvis travelled to my home to ensure the product would be with me in time. The item was perfect and just what we had described. The cost was extremely reasonable.

For those reasons we will be using and recommending Alvis Printing Services for our printing needs.

Thank you again for a fantastic customer service.

Emma Stanton
The Coachworks

I would like to recommend Alvis Printing Services to anyone who needs an excellent printer to provide an outstanding service for them.

Last week Alvis produced a one-off print job for me at a moment’s notice. The quality of the single brochure you produced from the PDF I emailed across to you was stunning and I was able to send it to a high profile client in Camberley in Surrey to meet the deadline I had given.

I cannot thank you and the team at Alvis enough. You made what could have been a complete nightmare scenario into an effortless task… although I know that behind the scenes you had your work cut out – your experience and organisation meant that I had a perfect brochure the very next day.

A huge thank you.

Corinne Christou
CGC Health Planning Ltd

Just wanted to say thanks again for turning my print job around so quickly, especially as I’d taken my time coming up with the design!! I was delighted that you were able to deliver before a pretty tight deadline.

I’m also grateful for the suggestions you made regarding my business cards – your suggestions made great business sense, obviously based on your experience and understanding of the purpose of the business cards in my business.

I’ve already asked you to quote for another job and am more than happy to promote you to other businesses. Once again thanks Ian.

Amanda Keech
Orchard Business Mentors

I thank you for the recent designing and printing of my publicity leaflets. I experienced your family company as friendly, but professional.

I have appreciated your patience in listening to my ideas and asking the right questions, specifically regarding the image that I wanted to portray.
I will not hesitate to recommend your company to fellow professionals, friends and family.

Heather Mackin
Macclesfield Counselling

Just wanted to let you know that Victoria’s Christening invites have been an absolute success!!! Got lots and lots of lovely feed back!
Thank you again!

Alasia Vicarelli di Saluzzo

I would just like to thank you for your work on the Berrys Newsletter prior to Christmas and earlier last year. I am sorry that we always seem to be in a rush and I do appreciate your prompt attention to our requirements.

Graham Bowcock

I would like to thank you once again for the outstanding print job you produced for me.
The A6 colour postcard run for my client renewals was undertaken with consideration and efficiency. You listened carefully to my needs, let me hunt around your print studio until I found the exact weight and finish of card that I was looking for and advised me of the best choices for the job I was presenting you with.

As soon as you had completed the samples you posted them to me for my inspection and began the final run immediately on my ok.

I really appreciated your posting a small number out so that I could get them sent off to clients who renew in April. The standard of the service you provide is exemplary and I would recommend you without reservation.

Corinne G Christou
CGC Health Planning Ltd

Having been in business for over 8 years we have used many types of printing companies for both litho and digital print. Over the last 6 months we have used Alvis Printing Services for a variety of projects and have been delighted with the print that they have supplied. Not only do they print to an exceptional quality but they also go above and beyond on the level of service that they deliver.

Ian and his team have a very keen eye and can spot a double space or misdemeanor before the printing process starts, ensuring that you deliver the perfect documents to your clients.

I can highly recommend Ian and the team at Alvis for all of your printing requirements and look forward to working with them in the coming months and years.

Sharon Charteress

I have just received the file copies of Athena’s Christmas card that you sent and they look great.

Also, thank you for producing them ahead of schedule.

I look forward to the next job.

Colin Holland
Graphic Design & Visual Communication

I write this testimonial in respect of the stationery that you prepared for my wedding almost a fortnight ago, which included orders of service, table place cards, menu cards and table name cards.

My wife had designed a theme which, although was aesthetically pleasing, soon turned out to be difficult to achieve practically. However, you and your team at Alvis prepared a fantastic sample order of service, which far exceeded our expectations, and we received some excellent comments from our guests.

This is not all, with some last minute dropouts and people to be included in the wedding breakfast, you provided some additional table place cards at very short notice.

On this basis, I would not hesitate to continue to recommend the services of Alvis to any of my friends and contacts, as we have been extremely impressed with your quality of work and attention to detail.

Andrew Williamson
Gladstones Solicitors

Just a quick note to thank you for the delivery of the brochures and all your hard work and patience! I am absolutely thrilled with them.

The plan is to send out 15,000 of these over the coming months so there will be plenty of repeat business for you.

Ross Simons
Supply and Save

The service I have received from Alvis has been second to none. The personal touch and attention to detail is outstanding and is of a level I believe would be difficult to find elsewhere – in fact they’re the only printers I know that proof read your material.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to any organisation.

Laura Bimpson
In Control

All of the materials arrived perfectly and they look wonderful! Thank you.

Sophia Cheng
