First founded in January 1989, Whitmar Publications quickly grew to become one of the leading specialist publisher in the commercial and packaging printing markets. Its goal is to deliver high quality editorial content through its printed magazines, online portals, events and social media channels.
At the end of 2012, the company took the decision to concentrate its publications on the growing areas of the printing sector, and it now boasts three of the leading trade titles within the industry, Digital Printer, FlexoTech and Digital Labels & Packaging.
Whitmar Publications uses a broad range of media to deliver dedicated content to its readers. From the traditional printed magazines, which are also available to read online, through to e-newsletters and all major social media channels. In the summer of 2018, the business made a significant investment in a new website in order to provide easily accessible content across all its titles. Added to this, the company also purchased the well established and highly regarded online job board Ozzle.co.uk to offer the industry a powerful proposition for online recruitment.
To help the readers understand and create opportunities from the fast changes in the print industry, the company also organises a variety of conferences, seminars and roundtable events, such as the Digital Print for Brand Success Conference.
Furthermore, Whitmar Publications has built a fine reputation for putting on the best awards events in the industry.
FlexoTech Awards, held at the Royal Lancaster London on the edge of London’s Hyde Park, celebrates the very best of what the flexo industry has to offer.
Digital Printer Awards, held at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, brings out the best of digital printing.
Print, Design & Marketing Awards, held aboard the Silver Sturgeon, River Thames (affectionately known as the ‘Boat’ Awards), acknowledges elegant print jobs, innovative design and superb marketing campaigns.
