  • I have worked with Paperhat on many print and signage projects over the last three years. We have printed catalogues and brochures for our Kohler sales offices in India, Egypt, France and China. They have been an outstanding resource for Kohler. Paperhat produce quality work and the have done a great job of servicing our account. Global Print Production Manager, Kohler Company
  • The main benefit of having Paperhat as our print specialist is that it has really allowed the European marketing teams to focus on true marketing functions. Any print or POS requirements have been handled quickly and easily via the Paperhat team and essentially over time they have become an extended part of the team. They fully understand our business needs and the way we need to support the local markets, adding creativity and sound solutions whilst delivering projects on time and within budget.Vice President, AEG, Milwaukee and Ryobi
  • Paperhat have been at the core of breaking down the previously held misconceptions of print expenditure and creative costs being somehow inseparable, and have played an integral part in the re-engineering of our supply chain methods which now deliver higher quality printed marketing material in shorter lead times.

  • The acknowledgment from France Telecom today that your company are always responsive to their requests provide both detailed information and market and technical knowledge was extremely good and very rare to hear.Commercial Sourcing Manager, Orange UK
