Please describe what your business does.
Headline Design and Print is our name, and that pretty much sums up what we do. Clients come to Headline because of our ‘end-to-end’ service. By that I mean, from taking the first design brief, through to delivery of the product at the end. We make sure every step is closely managed so that the client receives what they were expecting, when they were expecting it, and at a cost agreed at the outset. It sounds simple, but our industry is littered with examples of poor service and disappointed customers.
How long have you been in Woking?
For over 30 years, although I have owned the business for the past 11 years. We were on the High Street, opposite the station, but in July this year we took the opportunity to move to bigger premises at Boundary Business Centre near Sheerwater. Access is vastly improved, which helps with our client delivery and collections. The move coincided with the Woking town centre redevelopment of which I’ve been a long-time supporter. Once completed the desirability of the town will be much improved, and that will only be positive for people who live here and the new people that will want to come.
Why is Woking a good place to do business?
Woking enjoys fantastic connections by rail and road. That puts a lot of businesses within our catchment area, including London. I’ve witnessed significant improvements in Woking over the years. For example, in the retail and restaurant sectors as more people choose to live here. Woking is home to several blue-chip corporates, as well as traditional family-owned businesses and start-ups. Culture, arts, sport and local events are also thriving. All these sectors have a need for design and print. Every new business setting up or expanding in Woking provides an opportunity for us. I’m tremendously optimistic about the immediate future for the town.
