North East, full-service marketing and PR agency, Scarab4 has announced this week that it has won the contract to provide marketing services to Tanzanian photo personalisation business, Shutterbox.

Located at Prestwick Park, the contract win comes on the back of Scarab4 delivering predominately design and digital marketing services for a number of global photo personalisation providers, including a leading provider based in Australia.

Scarab4 has been commissioned by Shutterbox to manage all the company’s marketing needs based on its experience in the photobook and personalisation business. Shutterbox will be implementing a market leading printing software to deliver the very best in printing quality, production and services.

Speaking about the contract win, founder and MD of Scarab4, Jane Gatiss said: “We are ecstatic with this contract win which supports the agency’s strategic plans to differentiate into other market sectors and we are delighted to have landed another established business within the photoprint and personalisation business.

“We are excited to provide our services to such a fantastic business as Shutterbox and to further strengthen our foothold in the global market.  The Scarab4 team is thrilled to be working with a company that is introducing new and exciting products into its country.”

Speaking about the contract award, Shutterbox CEO, Ammar Chomoko, said: “We were especially impressed by Scarab4. The agency benefits from a team who have very strong knowledge and experience within the photoprint and personalisation industry, with connections across the globe and most importantly showed great understanding with creatively attracting key target markets.

“We knew Scarab4 had the ability and passion to work with us and get Shutterbox the exposure and awareness it deserves and we’re very much looking forward to working with Scarab4 and releasing our brand.”

Formed in 2012, Scarab4 carved its reputation for delivering marketing and PR services primarily to the energy sector. Whilst the agency will always have this discipline at the heart of its business, as part of strategic growth plans, Scarab4 has expanded into other marketing verticals – one of which is the photobook and personalised gift market – as the business looks to build on the vast experience of its chartered marketers and PR specialists.
