If you’re coming to see us at the upcoming Cornwall Business Show, Cornwall Business Fair or attending the Cornwall Business Awards then you’ll be amongst the first to get your hands on St Austell Printing Company’s very own Cornish card game.
“Cornish Pairs” is an adaptation of the well-known game “pairs”, but instead of matching numbers, you have to match up 15 different Cornish landmarks including The Eden Project, St Michaels Mount, The Lost Gardens of Heligan and Brown Willy.
We’ve produced a short-run of the game, which will be used as a promotional item with a difference at events over the coming months.
SAPC were awarded the worldwide contract to produce the card game Top Trumps last year and have just celebrated printing the millionth Cornish pack. We invested £500,000 in a brand new machine and “Cornish Pairs” packs are being finished on the same equipment.
Matt Bunt, Marketing and Communications Manager said: “We’re always looking for interesting marketing materials that people hang onto. With this game, not only have we produced something that people can have fun with, we’ve been able to help promote a whole range of Cornish landmarks.
“We’re very proud that these packs have been produced at our factory here in Cornwall and look forward to seeing them being used.”
“Cornish Pairs” packs are not for sale and only available as a promotional item at upcoming events. To find out where you can get hold of a pack please visit our website.
SAPC were helped in the Winning Moves “Top Trumps” contract bid with funding from BIG2, with part of the new equipment funded to allow the company to enter a new market sector.
