Positive prints16 December, 2014
How many times in a year do you forget your keys? Or your phone? Where did you even put your phone contract? Or even your Life Insurance and Mortgage documentation?
66,645 ITEMS LOST IN A LIFETIME
In November Beagle Street commissioned research, which revealed that on average the British adult spends seven minutes a day searching for lost possessions. Nearest the top of the list of items we lose most frequently as a nation, important documents are third behind our phones and stationary. And of those, Life Insurance policies come in at number three.
Why Positive Prints?
Here at Beagle Street we have a Never Lost Guarantee policy and to help our customers minimise the loss of important documents, and as a thank you for buying direct with Beagle Street, we have commissioned three top British artists to create limited edition ENJOY LIFE prints for 600 customers. Each artwork has a specially printed area on the back that displays policy details, meaning the prints can be hung on the wall or given to a loved one to hang on theirs so they can easily find the policy if they need to.
