Cartridge & Personalised Print World Andover has just won Fujifilm Business Accolade, Business Endeavour Award 2016. Owned by Mark and Lesley-Ann Simmonds, they have been a member of the FDIS group since early 2015 when they added the very latest Fujifilm Dry Minilab, three photo kiosks offering products such as digital photo prints and photo books to their existing services.

The new kiosks operate with the latest Fujifilm Imagine which means that not only can they offer a full digital print service in store but also online and now via smartphones and tablets with the new downloadable Fujifilm Imagine mobile app.

Mark and Lesley-Ann have invested a lot of time and money in re-fitting and merchandising their store to make it brighter and more welcoming all the better to show off the range of photo products and services they now provide.

Fujifilm Business Endeavour Awards scheme run by Fujifilm each year have over 170 stores competing for their prestigious awards. Mark and Lesley-Ann have achieved their first award within 12 months of becoming a Fujifilm digital imaging shop Mark say’s “I still can’t quite believe it. We have always been known in the town for great service when it comes to selling ink cartridges and printers and we took a big financial risk by adding the Fujifilm digital imaging services, so to have won any FDIS award within 12 months of opening is just amazing. It wouldn’t have happened without my wife Lesley-Ann and the rest of my fantastic hard working staff and off course the support of the Andover local community. Thank you”. Peter Wigington, marketing manager at Fujifilm says, “The business awards are aimed at recognising the efforts that high street photo retailers make in promoting photo printing on the high street. There is stiff competition among the other FDIS members across the UK so for Mark and Lesley-Ann and their staff to first win one of the four FBEA trophies is a fantastic achievement and one they should all be very proud of.”
