2017: A year of success for LWV Printworks
Reflecting on a successful year at LWV Printworks
The past year has been busy with lots new and exciting challenges and opportunities. Here we reflect on some of our highlights from 2017.
Award wins & nominations!
We were nominated for a Merseyside Independent Business Award in the ‘Digital & Technology Business of the Year’ category. There were some great local businesses in the category, but the judges chose us as the winner!
We were also nominated for a national PrintWeek Award in the ‘SME of the Year’ Category. To be recognised and considered for such a prestigious award in the print industry was an amazing achievement for us. We are extremely proud of ourselves for both of these achievement, and look forward to more amazing opportunities in 2018!
Featured in PrintWeek Magazine
In October 2017 we were interviewed by PrintWeek magazine. The interview was featured on both their website and in the magazine! We were asked questions about the history of LWV, and what makes us stand out from the crowd in a very competitive industry. This was an another exciting opportunity for us, as it enabled us to reach a whole new audience! You can read our interview here.

Working with the WWII Museum in Liverpool
We worked with the Western Approaches WWII museum to print all the foamex boards which are used throughout the museum. The boards tell the incredible story of how Liverpool played an important part in WWII’s ‘Battle of the Atlantic’.
“Glimpse at the documents and tools the forces used to monitor enemy convoys and inform the British government of their findings whilst keeping their intelligence secret from the enemy, including one of only two surviving wartime phones which had a direct connection to the war cabinet in London.
See where commanders and WRNS and WAAF personnel worked every day and night in the Map Room, the nerve centre of the Battle of the Atlantic. Here they monitored convoy routes and vital shipping lines, and pin-pointed enemy locations on a huge map laid across the table; total accuracy was necessary to enable the Royal Navy to contact and destroy the enemy.
The Map Room has remained exactly how it was left when the doors were closed on 15th August 1945.”
2017 was full of fun, fresh and exciting opportunities. We look forward to seeing what 2018 has to offer as we continue to work with some of the biggest companies in the UK, as well as local and homegrown businesses!
