Fifty years ago my parents founded this company because they believed they could provide churches and charities with better collection envelopes at a better price. Today, while our range of products and services may have expanded, our commitment to great quality at a great price remains unchanged.
If you'd like to learn a bit more about us we have a little video which we hope you enjoy just press the play video button and enjoy our small screen début.
Our clients range from small community churches with ten or fifteen subscribers to entire dioceses with tens of thousands of contributors.
Although we are primarily known for our boxed sets of church offering envelopes, over the years we have expanded our product range to meet the diverse needs of our clients.
We provide envelopes which can be bar-coded, consecutively or non-consecutively numbered, personalised, printed in full-colour and even printed with built in receipts.
We also provide a diverse range of marketing collateral - signage, brochures and flyers.
We have an ongoing committment to sustainability. We are proud to be a Climate Neutral printing company.
Our web to print service allows for easy ordering at a time that suits you.
Kathleen joined RPD in 2007 from IBM, where she had been a Quality Technician Team Leader in the micro-electronics division. With a Diploma in Line Management, another in Digital Marketing and certificates in Training, Lean Manufacturing and Quality Assurance, she has been instrumental in overseeing all aspects of the sales department including processing, marketing and product development.
Guided by her mantra of "treat others as you would like to be treated", Kathleen is responsible for developing and maintaining our extensive number of great client relationships. An avid landscape painter, she has even managed to raise money for charity by auctioning off a number of her works. What’s more, Kathleen is the first to volunteer to help out at any of the in-house charity events we organise during the year, including our annual cake sales for MS Ireland and Temple Street, our Christmas Jumper Day and our contributions to the Black Santa Christmas Fundraiser for St. Ann's Church in Dublin.
