Paper and Ink PR is an independent communications and Public Relations Company, based in the South West. It was founded in 2011 by Laura Dale, a fully qualified senior reporter and an experienced communications officer and PR consultant.
Laura has worked for local, regional and national media including the Herald Express, The Express and Echo, The Western Morning News, EX Magazine, The Telegraph and The Independent – doing research, writing hard news stories, human interest articles, travel and news features, blogs and columns for newspapers, magazines and the internet.
Laura has also worked as a press officer for international aid relief charities Oxfam and ShelterBox, both in the UK and in disaster zones. She has gained invaluable media coverage on some of Oxfam’s key projects and organised publicity stunts for Oxfam South West. Laura provided interim press officer coverage for ShelterBox for three months during a period of crisis for the organisation. She has also acted as an in-country press officer for international aid relief charity ShelterBox whilst on deployment.

Laura works with highly experienced freelance public relations and communications officers, copywriters, journalists, designers, photographers and videographers.
