News roundup—28th May 2009

Lands’ End has become the first catalogue customer to
sign up for Royal Mail’s Sustainable Mail service, which offers
discounts to mailers that meet environmental standards. (Lands’
End managing director Tim Curtis writes about what’s necessary
to meet the standards in the June issue of Catalogue
out next week.)

In a contrarian move, promotional products cataloguer EMC
Advertising Gifts has removed the ordering capability from
the latest version of its website. “We have decided to drop
online ordering for the moment in favour of encouraging our
customers, to get in touch with us by phone, email, and through
our online quote and sample request form,” according to a
statement. “This way we can offer our promotional gifts
expertise to ensure the customer is getting the best deal
available and the most suitable product for their budget and
their promotion.”

Phew: The Advertising Standards Authority determined that a
photo of a seminude woman in a recent Jack Wills fashion
catalogue was “not overtly sexual” nor inappropriate,
reports the Fleetwood Weekly News.

Gray and Osbourne and Boden get the nod from
The Times as sources of summer skirts for a
92-year-old woman.
