Recently, James Cropper kindly featured a piece about Shanowen Files on their website. See the article reposted below, as it appears on their site.
For 25 years, we’ve been providing Ireland’s leading stationery filing manufacturer, Shanowen Files, with a range of our finest filing papers. Sean O’Reilly, founder and owner of Shanowen Files, has been in the stationery trade for over 50 years and has worked closely with JamesCropper throughout his career. With a wealth of experience and rich heritage in the stationery trade, Shanowen is a perfect partner for JamesCropper and we’re proud to have facilitated their operations for two decades and counting.
Shanowen Files chose and continues to use our colourful Kendal Manilla range for its credentials as an established benchmark for exceptional performance within the filing and stationery markets. Its strength and durability provides consistently excellent printing and converting results, with it being used in the manufacture of document wallets, flat folders, expanding files, suspension files, indices, pad covers and tags.
Meanwhile, Sprint Manilla, which is often used for legal and professional files and folders, offers the manufacturer a range with excellent runnability and uncompromised strength and quality. Being produced with around 80 per cent recovered fibre, it’s perfect for those of Shanowen’s clients looking for an eco-friendly option.
Vanguard, our range of smooth, uncoated papers and boards, has been utilised by Shanowen Files to allow for the production of coordinated presentation material, due to its wide selection of pastel and intense colours, as well as the multiple weights available. Its high-opacity makes it ideal for the production of printed items, such as brochures, calendars and greetings cards.
Philip O Reilly, director of Shanowen Files, said: “Since expanding into general print in 1996, we’ve been printing on James Cropper’s premium papers and have received outstanding feedback from clients in relation to the quality of the boards used. Some of the products we manufacture include, document wallets, flat folders, spiral files, bespoke medical files, tabbed indices, file covers and index dividers. We’ve seen our company go from strength to strength and couldn’t have done it without such high-quality products and service — here’s to the next 20 years!”
