Stationers' Warrants

warrants header

The Stationers’ Company Warrant recognises excellence within the Communications and Content industries in the form of annual awards. The warrant seal of excellence may be used on products, or to promote products, that meet the highest standards of excellence as assessed by the team of judges. Each product will be judged on its own merits and the Warrant will be granted for use on a product by product basis for the period of one year. Warrants may be re-assessed on a year-by-year basis and, if the standard of the product is judged to be maintained, they may be extended.

Products are judged according to the following criteria:

  • industry and product category, with a high level  of original design (innovation) and interpretation
  • high quality manufacturing/production techniques, use of materials and attention to detail
  • thoughtful, appropriate and sustainable presentation and packaging
  • environmental credentials (eg FSC, ISO 9000, 14000 and 18000 certification) and compliance with ethical trading guidelines
  • Impact, relevance and popularity within its market sector

The 2018 Stationers' Warrants programme is now launched and the online nomination form is available here.  Entries must be received by 16 June 2017.
