We are a family run business with a devotion to creativity and a dedication to detail.
Combining creativity and print is at the heart of what we do and is the culmination of years of experience in various forms of high end design from silversmithing to product and graphics. It is the skills accumulated along the way and a geeky addiction to all things stationery, that ensure the quality of all our products which are produced in-house by our passionate hands-on team.
We work collaboratively with our clients and strive to achieve the highest standards whilst treating every project with individual care and attention. We understand how important business is to our customers and love working with them to create striking and memorable products which can fuel their success.
Our passion for design and all things stationery mean we are often ahead of industry and market changes and can therefore offer customers a unique advantage.
Being a family business we can also be totally flexible and ensure that each project is tailored to each customer and in a time and fashion that suits. To help ensure this, we always offer considered and knowledgeable support throughout. If you decide to join our pack of very happy customers, you’ll find that we’re a friendly bunch, who like nothing more than giving great service.
We, that’s us, Aaron and Lucinda, started Woodblock in 2005, having sold up a successful design business based in East London and moved to leafy Surrey. Our education, training and experience had been very different, but this is what makes this team so strong. In 1994 Aaron gained an M.A. in Three-dimensional design at Birmingham Univerisity, specialising in desk accessories and stationery. He then went on to freelance for Paperchase, Wedgwood, British Airways, Links of London and Parker Pens among others. Aaron has a thoughtful and innovative approach to design and attention to detail that has won Woodblock awards and a glowing reputation.
Lucinda read Business and Marketing at Cardiff University. After travelling, she threw herself into the family business, a chain of pubs in South West London, running the events, weddings, restaurants and then becoming more involved in the business side of the company. Being dragged up in the service industry instilled a customer service ethic in Lucinda which has become invaluable in the day to day running of Woodblock. It is Lucinda’s incredible organisation skills, love of lists and an obsessive notebook fetish which has made Woodblock into one of the countries leading suppliers of premium branded promotional products.
We love having so much contact with our customers and being able to provide them with a personal service, support and our long-garnered knowledge. Simply, we love what we do and we hope you do too!
We have proudly been manufacturing notebooks, diaries, stationery and packaging from our Surrey studio since 2005 and use local materials and suppliers where possible. We are part of ‘Made in Britain’ which is accredited to businesses that sell goods that have been manufactured or have undergone a final substantial change in Britain before sale.
We are pleased to support the Carbon Capture program in conjunction with Premier Paper and the Woodland Trust. The Trust plants trees to soak up CO2 which is damaging to the environment. We pay an extra percentage per tonne of paper and this is then passed on to the Woodland Trust to fund the planting of trees throughout the UK.
