ballot papers

TALL produces millions of ballot papers for elections in the UK and around the world.

Ballot papers are printed to the highest levels of quality and security, features include:

  • Watermarked paper
  • Security inks
  • Micro text
  • Barcodes

The TALL Group has developed reliable processes to fulfil high volume orders for elections requiring an extremely fast turnaround. Expert project management and flexible working arrangements allow TALL to fulfil orders of 15 million plus ballot papers for elections worldwide.

In election systems where ballot papers are liable items, strict security and controls must surround election ballot document printing. If ballot authenticity is provided by the use of special papers, paper stocks must also be strictly controlled. As ballot paper printing is a high volume, short production time process that demands total print accuracy from the print supplier, it is necessary for the electoral management body for elections to have total confidence in the capacity, quality control procedures, integrity, and security of ballot document printing contractors such as TALL Security Print.

Queen’s Award for Enterprise: International Trade 2018

The TALL Group of Companies is honoured to have secured the UK’s highest official accolade for business success. Her Majesty The Queen approved the Prime Minister’s recommendation that the organisation should receive a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category in 2018.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious awards for UK businesses and are globally recognised. The awards have a long history of recognising exceptional UK businesses. The Queen’s Award to Industry, the scheme’s original title, was instituted by Royal Warrant in 1965, with the first Awards announced in 1966. It later became known as the Queen’s Awards for Export and Technology in 1975, before becoming the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in 1999.

Each entry is judged by a specialist panel that makes a recommendation to the Prime Minister’s Advisory Committee. Her Majesty the Queen then decides the winners, who each receive an official grant of appointment and an invitation to a reception at Buckingham Palace.

This is the second time that The TALL Group has been accorded the Queen’s Award after Hinckley-based Checkprint Limited received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation in 2005 for its cheque printing software applications.

The TALL Group successfully exports to over 20 countries, with products ranging from cheques to vouchers and from certificates to ballot papers for elections around the world. The growth of this international trade has established The TALL Group as a market leader for highly secure and top-quality print products and services. This has encouraged organisations around the world to rely on the organisation’s committed workforce in the UK to provide a wide range of secure documents.

Indeed, The TALL Group achieved record sales over the judged period for the award, boosted by an order for 25 million ballot papers for elections in Uganda.
