Over promising and under delivering – a major bugbear for schools and colleges

Being suppliers of school homework diaries and college student planners for over 20 years it’s no surprise to us that at the top of most lists when deciding on their planner supplier is “reliability”.

A considerable amount of our new business comes from schools and colleges who’ve been let down on delivery by their previous supplier. They’ve been given an ‘unbeatable’ price but their supplier has been unable to cope with the subsequent demand and then crucial delivery deadlines are missed.

Delivered on time, every time!


At we’ve an unblemished delivery record and can boast all our planner orders being delivered on time or early for over 15 years!

We can give you 5 good reasons for this:

  1. We are realistic. Clear lead times are given at initial enquiry stage and a proof approval deadline is agreed at the start of any planner project.
  2. We have complete control. All our operations are under one roof, we do not sub-contract any of our school or college planner services including artwork, print, finishing and online ordering.
  3. We have an experienced team. People with a great mix of individual skills for dealing with and producing school planners and college diaries.
  4. We believe honesty is the best policy. We’re up front with our production schedule. If we hit a snag, we immediately inform the client – we don’t hide it, pretend everything is OK, or just “hope for the best”.
  5. We understand. Usually, schools and colleges require their planner delivery before students return for the start of term, they may be required for an enrolment week or for teachers to prepare into tutor groups. We get this.

So, if you’ve been let down on delivery and you’re just looking for a planner supplier who can offer you delivery reliability then contact us today!
