How Penstripe Helped

How did you first find out about Penstripe Student Planners?
I received a Penstripe sample planner box in the post at the same time I had just taken over responsibility for ordering our student planners. I was very impressed with the look and feel of the products so touched base with our personal account manager, Tom Moore, to discuss our requirements.

What made you choose Penstripe as your planner supplier?
A few companies quoted but I got a good ‘vibe’ from Penstripe. When I spoke with Tom on the phone, I could see that he would be easy to work with and would help me through the process. He was extremely helpful and endlessly pleasant.

How did you find the development and artwork creation process?
With Christmas around the corner and little time available to invest in the development stage I was initially a little worried about the whole process, particularly as this was my first year organising our planners. However, my concerns were quickly put to rest due to the extensive support I received from the Penstripe team. I was guided through the production process from start to finish and shown how to use their brilliant online planner creation tool, myPenstripe.

Did the final product meet your expectations?
Absolutely. Our new student planners have been incredibly well received, not just by our students but also by our teachers and parents. The design, layout and general look and feel of the product has exceeded our expectations.

Would you recommend our Student Planners to other schools?
I would have no hesitation recommending Penstripe, and Tom in particular, but feel that everyone I dealt with was very friendly and helpful. I’m already speaking with the team about our planners for next year and know how much time will now be saved by using myPenstripe again to create our planners.
