2016: A Year In Reveiw

It’s been a very busy year here at Solopress. From new product launches to winning awards, our 2016 has been full of great achievements as the company grows. Here’s a run down of the biggest things that happened this year at Solopress.

The Smell Of Success


Every year companies around the world try to get-one-over on us on April Fools Day, we tried our hand at fooling the internet and boy did it work! With a realistic website setup and sleek online video commercial, the PheroCard was born.

This business card promised the ultimate success, as they radiated pheromones of elite athletes and business people, giving the user the ultimate confidence to achieve.

After achieving huge success on social media, the trick was picked up by national newspapers and website, becoming part of the list of the best April Fools of the year!

It was a fantastic year for recognition in 2016 at Solopress. We have not only won one business of the year award, we won two!

The company had the honour of receiving the ICAEW South Essex Large Business of the Year award and our co-founder/CEO Aron Priest received the ICAEW South Essex Business Person of the Year award.

A couple of months afterwards, we had the pleasure of receiving the Essex Business Excellence Award’s Growing Business of the Year award.

Earlier in the year, we also received the silver award at the Essex Digital Awards for Best Online Retailer.

Thanks A Million


Solopress hit a huge milestone this year, as we processed our 1,000,000th order!

It was a huge achievement for the company and we’d love to thank all of our loyal customers over the past 15 years.

For The Colourful


This year, we launched one of our most personal product yet. Our Coloured Edge Business Cards took individuality right to the edge. With 13 colours to choose from and it’s unique double layered composition, our new business cards were not only colourful, they were strong too.

It’s Been A Great Year

So that’s another year down, let’s look forward to an action packed 2017. We’d like to thank all of our customers for printing with us and we look forward to being of service to you next year!
