2017 kicked off in a big way for British Tags, with the arrival of two new members to our enlarged sales team. Katie Powell joined us as Account Manager and Christian Ohman as Sales Executive. Both will be able to help you with the supply of all our branded labelling, packaging and promotional products, alongside our existing sales team, which is now nine-people strong.
Unfortunately they were too late arriving at the company to join us at a rather special pre-Christmas event which the boss organised for us; a trip to one of our favourite customers, Silent Pool Gin Distillery. Even though it was December, the sun was shining and we were shown the whole process of distilling gin in this highly successful rural business nestled in the Surrey Hills. We then had a chance to taste some of the many drinks they make and to buy presents (mainly for ourselves I think!). We are very proud of the swing ticket that we make for Silent Pool Distillers, produced on 1mm thick card with copper foil detail and even better to see it attached to products – something we rarely get the chance to do.
January saw another very successful visit to Top Drawer at Olympia where we took more enquiries than in any other previous years, so we were glad of the additional helping hands from the team. Many product enquiries are now in development or sampling with one or two now in production. This was our 10th year at this fair and we have already booked our stand for January 2018!
