Conqueror will participate in The Coronation Festival at Buckingham Palace, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The Festival, organised by the Royal Warrant Holders Association, is a celebration of British heritage and service to the Royal Households. The Festival takes place in the Palace gardens from 11-14 July 2013.
Conqueror fine paper first rolled off the presses in 1888. Its history is one of individual and collective determination and British ingenuity. It began in Victorian England with one man’s humble ambition to bring the art of letter writing to a wider audience. London stationer E. P. Barlow was keen to produce a readily available, quality paper. At the time, much of the paper in circulation was handmade and for the exclusive use of those who could afford it. A typical mill produced just a few hundred weight a week. Adopting the latest technology, Mr. Barlow not only provided the market with larger quantities of affordable paper, he also ensured the consistent high quality that hand-made techniques could not guarantee.
Over the past 125 years, Conqueror has grown into a globally recognised brand that is an expression of quality and refinement. Today, Conqueror is the gold standard for brand identity, expressed through an infinite variety of creative applications. Available in 120 countries, Conqueror gives a voice to privately run small and large businesses, international and multi-national corporates, governments and royal households, luxury brands and discerning individuals worldwide.
‘We are honoured to take part in the anniversary celebrations for Her Majesty The Queen. Our presence at the Coronation Festival reflects our commitment to heritage, refinement and quality and our belief that fine papers are synonymous with the highest reputations, expressed in a language that is understood across the globe, said Arjowiggins Creative Papers MD Jonathan Mitchell.
