In 1899 Queen Victoria granted a Lord Mayoralty to Bristol and since that date Bristol has had continuously a Lord Mayor. Prior to this date Bristol has had a Mayor since 1216. The Lord Mayor is the first citizen of Bristol.
The Lord Mayor is elected by the other councillors who serve on Bristol City Council and devotes his or her time to the promotion of the city.
The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor of Bristol Christopher Davies visited the offices of Bristol printers Minuteman Press to present the British Printing Industry Federation’s Marketing Company of the Year Award.
Whilst touring the print centre The Lord Mayor met the team, learned of the processes involved in graphic design and printing and inspected the quality and variety of products produced. The Lord Mayor advised that he had an important project, which, based on what he had seen and heard, could be trusted to Minuteman Press. The design and production of The Lord Mayor’s Christmas card.
Minuteman Press liaised closely with the Lord Mayor and Royal West of England artist (and author) John Palmer whose colour depiction of the Lord Mayor’s Chapel would feature on the front of the card. It was critical to ensure the colours were faithfully reproduced as John envisaged.
Stationery was selected personally by the Lord Mayor and artwork created by Minuteman Press detailing the Lord Mayor’s crest and a Christmas message.
The cards were manufactured on the Xerox press and each was creased and hand finished as is the standard practice at Minuteman Press. 1500 Christmas cards were produced for distribution to the great and the good of Bristol. The order was delivered to the Mansion House.
“I was delighted with the Christmas Cards from Minuteman Press they were exactly what I had imagined. From first to last the quality and finish of the cards were perfect, every one of them. I am so grateful” The Right Honourable The Lord Mayor of Bristol Councillor Christopher Davies.
“Every evening Christopher has been personally signing each card. If anyone is qualified to comment on the high quality and perfect reproduction of them, he certainly is.” the Lady Mayoress of Bristol Susan Davies added with a giggle.
