Choice Stationery Supplies is a family business formed by Paul Andrews way back in 1998 from the shed in the back garden. To this day it remains a family business owned and run by the Andrews Family doing what it set out to do back in 1998 - provide quality inkjet cartridges and supplies at competitive prices...but, thankfully, no longer in the garden shed.
Choice Stationery Supplies started its life in Minehead, West Somerset.
Following expansion we relocated about 10 miles up the road where we had a bespoke warehouse and remained there until 2008 when we relocated again through expansion to bespoke premises in Taunton, Somerset with our offices and warehouse all under one roof. We're proud to employ local people with a vast knowledge of the different aspects of the trade, to include both printer consumables and stationery, some of our staff have been with us since Choice began and are an important part of the company’s success.
We provide inkjet cartridges and toners for all home and office printers, alongside an extensive range of stationery items. We supply original branded items from manufacturers like Epson, Canon, Hewlett Packard, Pentel, Bic & Sharpie, along with our own brand of cartridges under the Think Alternative range.
Our Think inkjet cartridges are very popular with our customers due to the savings they offer against the manufacturer’s original product and also the quality of printing they offer through their vivid colours and crisp black text.
When we started Choice back in 1998 we knew we were entering a competitive market where a lot of other companies existed, already offering similar products and a good service. We continuously strive to match and beat the levels of service available, and feel we are succeeding with our 100%, no quibble guarantees, and our delivery inclusive prices . We keep all our advertising as simple and accurate as possible.
We also try to make it as easy as possible for you to place an order, with orders accepted via post, fax, email, over our secure web site or by using one of our freephone lines. Of course, we always endeavour to dispatch your items the same day, via Royal Mail, or if you're local one of our own vans and drivers.
One area where we have become market leaders is in the effort we make to ensure the quality of the products is foremost, whilst keeping the retail prices the lowest on the UK mainland.
The loyalty of our customers, who order from us time and time again, goes to prove that both our pricing and customer service speaks for its self. With over 1 million customers throughout the UK our family has grown and we thank everyone of you for your support over the years.
It was these service and pricing efforts, plus our customer’s loyalty, that helped us to receive, for the 5th year running, the honour of the Computer Active Reader's Award for 'Best Specialist Consumable Supplier' in the UK.
Also this year we reached the shortlist, along with Amazon, Dabs.com, Evesham.com & PC World for 'Best Retailer'. These are achievements we admit to constantly shouting about. Why not? We are still excited by them, after all, with a circulation of around 245,000 readers every fortnight and the numbers of you who took the trouble to vote, (for which we thank you), I think we should be proud, enjoy it and work at being the customer's favourite next time too.
