2023 stationers warrant 2

Application date extended for the 2023 Stationers’ Company Warrants

Published: 28 Nov 2022

The Stationers’ Company announced today that it is extending the date for applications for new Warrants and 2022 Warrant renewals.

These Annual Warrants are formal recognition of the high quality that companies in the Communications and Content Industries put into their products and services, recognising, and acknowledging excellence, with the annual scheme now in its 9th year.

The scheme distinguishes itself by being open to everyone in the Communications and Content industry sectors, both members and non-members of the Stationers’ Company.

The Stationers’ Company confirms a limited number of warrants each year. They are granted based on a set of rigorous criteria including original design and high-quality manufacturing/production techniques, as well as factors such as appropriate and sustainable packaging, and relevance to the industry or market sector; supporting evidence of quality is required.

Applications are reviewed by an eminent panel of Stationers’ Company members, and presentation of new Warrants will take place at a formal luncheon in Stationers’ Hall on 6th March 2023. In 2022, over 130 attended this event, providing additional publicity for the companies involved. The closing date for applications is now Tuesday, 31 January 2023.

Chris Geer, Chair of the Warrants Committee said: “Warrants remain important in increasingly competitive markets, as they offer differentiation and a quality mark of recognition. We encourage businesses to come forward and shout about the great things they are doing”. Jill Jones, Chair of the Industry Committee, added ..’The Warrants bring the full gravitas of 600 years of Stationers’ Company heritage - a seal of excellence for those companies awarded the Warrant’…

In 2022 the Stationers' Company recognised a wide range of industry excellence across many sectors – including quality leather and bookbinding materials, a service reviewing publisher content for students for its inclusivity and diversity messaging, digital typographical and branding website design, a multitouch sensor solution using traditional print industry production processes for new markets and applications, and a pioneering programme addressing problems of waste in the papermaking industry with a zero waste goal.

If you have a product or service that would benefit from being considered for a Stationers’ Company Warrant, we welcome your application as soon as possible as there are only a limited number of warrants available each year. Application forms and Terms and Conditions are available online at the Stationers’ Company website Warrants Scheme (
