A list of partners is here. is an Avios partner you probably haven’t heard of.  The company has been offering Avios points for a number of years – for at least as long as Head for Points has been running – but is never mentioned on as a partner. is an online printing company specialising in pretty much everything:

  • leaflets
  • business cards
  • stickers
  • postcards
  • display boards
  • brochures
  • invitations
  • posters etc

I have never used the business personally but the website looks impressive. Avios runs its own reward programme.   You earn four Printed Points for every £1, excluding VAT and delivery, you spend, which increases to up to 10 Printed Points per £1.

Silver status (7 points per £1) is yours if you:

  • place a total of 4 -10 lifetime orders, or
  • have placed one order in the last 90 days, or
  • have spent £290 in the last 90 days, excluding VAT and delivery

To qualify for Pink status (10 points per £1) you need to:

  • place a total of 10 or more lifetime orders, or
  • have placed 1 order in the last month, or
  • have spent £620 in the last 90 days, excluding VAT and delivery

As you can see, you could in theory change tier every month based on your activity!  However, demotions are only made on 90 day cycles so you will retain a tier for at least that long.

You can earn bonus points for completing your site profile, reviewing your previous orders and referring friends to the company.

Your Printed Points can be used for Avios, for Amazon or Marks & Spencer vouchers or for credit towards future orders.

The conversion rate into Avios is not shown on their site but it is roughly 4.2 to 1 based on previous reader feedback.  This means that you receive a little under 1 Avios per £1 ex-VAT that you spend.

If you have any printing requirements coming up, you can find out more on their website here.

    When explaining the status tiers, the actual website omits the words “or” and “and” after each criterion, so it’s not immediately clear which criteria are cumulatively essential for each tier or not.

    I can’t speak from any direct experience with the product, nor any insider knowledge that Rob may be privy to, but I would be astonished if only one criterion were necessary for each tier as implied by the way the article adds “or” after each criterion.

    Otherwise you would immediately hit top “pink” status by placing any non-zero order by virtue of meeting the “one order in the last month” criterion.

    I suspect the intention us more likely to be that all three criteria are needed for each tier, and so the added “or” after each criterion should be “and” instead.

      I agree with you, but on the balance of probability I went with my interpretation 🙂
