Horncastle printers Mortons has been named Regional Newspaper Printer of the Year at the national Newsawards 2017.

Mortons won for the quality of its print work on a range of weekly and specialist newspapers.

Chairman of judges Gary Cullum said Mortons Print was the ‘clear winner’ for judges, who described the selection of newspapers put forward by the firm as the ‘stand out’ entry.

He said: “The titles on the judges’ table demonstrated vibrant colour, strong and consistent black density, and good contrast in images.

“The newspapers were a pleasure to pick up – and the entry was head and shoulders above the rest.”

The award presentation evening at the Lancaster London, in Lancaster Terrace, London, on Wednesday, April 5, was attended by Mortons print director Steve Wickwar, commercial manager Ken Calderwood and operations manager Jim Blyth.

Steve said: “It was a great team effort and a testament to all the hard work that has been put in over the last few years.

“It just goes to show what can be achieved using the latest technology and the skills of a highly experienced print production team.”
