We have recently appointed Kelly Harris as Business Development Director of our online printing business YouLovePrint. Kelly will be responsible for continuing to grow the brand by a mixture of direct sales, online marketing, enhancing the UX and growing the range of product available.
YouLovePrint was formed in 2017 by Lloyd Bromhead and Ed Handford, son of Pureprint CEO Mark Handford. The majority stake was bought by Pureprint Group in 2018 and has steadily grown supplying both the creative community, print managers and end users of print. It’s easy to use online quoting and ordering functionality, reputation for high customer service levels, quick turnaround and great value prices has meant the brand has seen considerable growth over the last two years.
Kelly has over 30 years print and technology experience, most recently at Cimpress’ UK subsidiary Tradeprint gaining valuable experience around online marketing, customer journey and order processing. Roles at print management business Vital Communications and DS Smith has given Kelly an in-depth knowledge of clients print requirements across all major sectors. A previous four year spell at Pureprint as Business Development Manager, means that he knows his way around the business and an existing network of colleagues to call on.
Kelly comments “YouLovePrint offers a unique proposition in a crowded space by manufacturing all of its work within Pureprint Group with its well renowned quality and sustainability and the benefit of convenience and efficiency of an online solution. All too often the online marketplace has been about price – clearly we have to offer value for money, but for us, it’s also very much about quality and ensuring everything is produced in the most environmentally responsible way.”
Mark Handford, CEO stated, “I am delighted that Kelly has agreed to re-join the business. With more buyers migrating away from traditional print purchase solutions for standardised print products, accelerated by COVID challenges, we want to continue to grow this part of the business and build on its successes.”
