Who We Are
Pineneedle are trusted, innovative and experienced.
Founded by Barns Morison and Nick Krestovnikoff - old friends who met during University - Pineneedle was born in 1988 as a print and design company producing bespoke publications.
Fast forward over 20 years and we are now the leading agency in producing wedding and ceremonies literature for councils across the UK and we've built a reputation for delivering excellent results with a professional and personal touch. From initial design concepts to copywriting, proofing, photography and printing, we take care of everything for you.
If you already have a design in mind, or an in-house team, Pineneedle can work together with you to produce stand out literature that we guarantee you’ll want to shout about.
In short - we love the work we do and we are sure you will too.

Compliance General Data Protection Regulation 2016
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed to address the processing of ‘personal data’. Companies like Pineneedle Design Ltd do process personal data and the GDPR requires us to give our clients, or anyone who has contact with the company involving the processing of personal data, information about our data processing activities.
What are ‘Personal Data’ and ‘Data Processing’?
‘Personal data’ is any information relating to a living individual from which he or she can be identified (eg. an address). Any form of recording, transferring, amending or deleting of personal data is classed as ‘data processing’.
Types of processing
At Pineneedle our data processing activities are very routine and typical of what you would expect with a company like ours. We need to record the contact details of our clients by means of computer databases and paper files. We record personal details provided by job applicants. We also occasionally need to make backup copies of our records. These records are erased or destroyed when it is no longer legally necessary for us to retain them. We do not release your details to third parties for marketing purposes. Telephone calls may be recorded for training and quality purposes. Data is only used for the purpose which it was originally supplied.
Retention of data
We keep personal data only for as long as is legally necessary. We will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal data is kept up to date and accurate. Any sensitive data recorded in paper form will be destroyed using a cross-cut paper shredder before being disposed of.
Your information will not be shared with any third party unless it is necessary to do so or to provide you with a service you have requested or have become entitled to as a client. We may occasionally share data with external associates who assist us in the provision of our services. We ensure that your personal data will not be disclosed to State institutions and authorities except if required by law or other regulation.
If data is shared, we expect third parties to adhere and comply with the GDPR and protect any data of yours that they process. We do not permit any third parties to process personal data for their own reasons. Where they process your data it is for a specific purpose according to our instructions.
All our employees and data processors, who have access to, and are associated with the processing of personal data, are obliged to respect the confidentiality of personal data. Access to personal data is restricted to staff who need that access to perform their job function. Access to data stored within our company is strictly controlled using firewalls and other means. We are PCI compliant, as verified, in part, by monthly SecurityMetrics scans.
