How I've benefited from sharing the secret of great print

If you work in the design and print industry, the chances are that you have colleagues, acquaintances and friends who all print too. That’s why, back in February, we launched our refer a friend scheme which could leave you swimming in free print until the end of time, just by referring your friends and acquaintances. 

Take a look at how the refer a friend scheme has worked for a couple of our customers:


Lauren Parker:

Why do you use, Lauren?

I am a graphic designer and illustrator, and am now selling my work in stores internationally. I originally started using due to their great range in papers, which I couldn't find anywhere else, and have been so impressed with how my cards have turned out every time.

How do you use your printed points?

The Reward Programme is such a fantastic idea. It's been really helpful for me as I have been able to get some free print at times when I may not have been able to afford it. It's great to feel like you’re getting a little something back – even if it's just a few points, they add up and can really go a long way.

Why do you use the new refer a friend scheme?

I can't recommend enough – I've been able to do some really great things with my products and it's helped me get where I am today. So now being able to gain printed points from recommending them is just another added bonus!


Charlotte Vallance

Why do you use, Charlotte?

I'm an illustrator and screen printer based in London and Bucks. I work on personal projects for products to sell at markets and in my online shops. Alongside this I also do freelance illustration for individual clients, as well as bigger companies. I like the contrast of screen printing and watercolours for illustration.  One is possible to do anywhere at anytime, and the other takes quite a bit of planning! I use to reproduce my watercolour illustrations on cards and as digital prints.  Being able to do this keeps my work affordable for my lovely customers!  

Why do you recommend to your friends?

I like to use as I find the customer service is brilliant and I love the quality of the print I get when using the 'Gesso' paper stock. It has a lovely textured feel to it, almost mimicking the actual watercolour paper the original was painted on.  These are the points that I mention when I recommend This puts people's minds at ease if they're a bit unsure on how to proceed with the whole process. Knowing that someone will be understanding and helpful if the customer need to ring up is really reassuring!

What do you do with your printed points?

At the moment I'm saving up my points so I can have some fun printing my new designs. Having the support of a bit of money off the cost makes it less scary to commit those illustrations to print.


How does the scheme work and how can I get started, we can hear you cry? Read here to get started.

Why not share the secret of great print with your friends, just like Charlotte and Lauren have?
