Are this pair Yorkshire's most popular bosses?
instantprint, the Rotherham based printers has celebrated its 10th anniversary this week with a difference, as the 350 strong team imitated founders, James Kinsella and Adam Carnell by wearing face masks of the duo at a surprise party to celebrate 10 successful years.
The milestone mark’s instantprint’s growth from a two-man start up to a 350 strong team which has recently expanded into the premises next door which has increased their capacity by 45% and seen a £6.5 million investment in technology.
Fast facts to mark ten years of printing:
• Nearly 250 million (247,046,190) business cards printed over ten years is enough to wrap round the Earth’s equatorial circumference 1.8 times. • More than 76 million (76,007,635) stickers produced in ten years is enough to cover the Empire State Building nearly 1000 (999.83) times over. • More than one million (1,198,081) posters printed in ten years is the equivalent of 212 male polar bears in weight. • With almost 20 million (19,343,712) stitched books created at instantprint over a decade compares to topping up a stapler 368,451 times. • Nearly one billion (1,428,921,412) flat stationery products produced over the ten years at instantprint would equate to the whole population of China to have at least one piece of stationery!
James Kinsella, director and founder, said; “The team did an amazing job surprising Adam and I with a big party to celebrate 10 years of instantprint. The guys even invited our friends and family along too.
“I have to admit I thought something was up the day before when an express payment for a rodeo bull came through on the system, not something we’d normally order.
“The team surprised us by dressing in what is apparently our trademark look of checked shirts and jeans which gave the office an interesting look!
“We’re fortunate enough to have a great team who share the same passion and values, keep surprising us and have all contributed to getting the business to where it is today.”
instantprint is recruiting for 40 roles across different disciplines including machine operatives, junior artworkers and business development execs and set to increase workforce by 10%.
Successful applicants will be working for an award-winning company that has won the Sheffield Business Award for Company of the Year 2018, in addition to appearing in the Virgin Sunday Times Fast Track 100 ranking for 2 consecutive years.
