GiPrint, part of the Green Inc Group, joined the O’s family in the 2018/19 season as the East Stand Sponsor, and we are delighted that they have agreed to renew the partnership for another 3 years until the end of the 2023/24 season.
As O’s fans will already know, 2021 has been a busy year in the GiPrint East Stand as the roof renovation project has been underway, including the replacement of the historic gable lettering. GiPrint, already responsible for much of the branding around the stadium including pitchside ad boards, were given the task of creating the new letters.
This one-off project involved measuring each letter, fabricating and installing in order to replicate the original lettering style. This process, as well as the newly finished gable, can be seen in the image gallery on this page.
Marc Stanton, Company Director at GiPrint, said: “It was great being asked to carry out this work on the historic stand. I hope the fans like our work and we did them proud! We enjoy an amazing partnership with the O’s and look forward to working on more projects, bringing more colour and companies’ visions to life around the stadium.”
Josh Stephens, Head of Commercial at Leyton Orient FC, said: “Working with Marc and the GiPrint team over the past few seasons has been a pleasure, and we are delighted that they have agreed a new partnership for the next 3 seasons. The quality of the work GiPrint produce for the Club, from gable lettering and stand branding to programme print, is of the highest quality and always delivered on time. During the pandemic they have also supported the Club by supplying hand sanitiser and janitorial products. I’m looking forward to the return of fans for many reasons, but particularly to have a beer with Marc’s father who has become a resident in the 1881 Suite on a matchday!”
