BPIF chose Mirri material
for 2013 Christmas card

The BPIF is a not-for-profit organisation whose principal business is to support and represent the UK print, printed packaging and graphic communication industry and is one of the country’s leading trade associations. 

The BPIF mailed out 2000 Christmas cards to members and associates of the organisation using Mirri Pak silver material.  The card was printed by BPIF member Offset Productions, based in Aylesford, Kent. 

Vince Brearey Director of Operations, at Offset Productions, commented “The cards were printed with UV inks and Gloss UV lacquer inline”. Vince added, “The Mirri material was easy to work with and we also chose it for our own card”. 

The card was printed 4 colour + white ink, with a white pattern integrated into the design.  Mirri Pak silver 415mic was the material weight.

Amy Hutchinson, Marketing Manager at the BPIF commented “The Mirri material provided a silver canvas for us to apply our Christmas design. The card preformed well and received fantastic feedback from our client base”. 

Jennifer Deacon Marketing Manager at Mirri – A Division of Celloglas, commented   “Mirri is a fantastic material for Christmas or greetings cards, this card was printed litho, but we also have a HP Indigo product in the same spec, that can be printed digitally, allowing for personalisation.”

Maxey Charity Club
uses Mirri for Christmas baubles

In a leafy village in Peterbourough, a local charity set up a Christmas project in aid of prostate cancer. The Maxey Charity Club came up with the idea of asking businesses for support to set up a Christmas tree in the village with solar panel lights. Then they sent a bauble to each village member made from Mirri, asking them to put it on the tree and suggested that a donation to the charity would be welcome. 

Many businesses helped, including Mirri who supplied sheets of Mirri Pak Rainbow to make the baubles.
Classic Printers in Peterbourough,  provided print on the white side of the bauble, with the charity details. 

All the sponsors received a brick on the Christmas chimney, that was placed next to the tree.

Pat Summers, from the Maxey Charity Club commented “We have had very positive feedback from lots of the villagers and plenty of donations, we will find out how much we have raised after Christmas”.

Richard Gillgrass, Managing Director at Celloglas and Mirri commented “We are delighted to support this lovely charity village campaign, it’s fantastic to see local communities raising money in this way”.
