Save on delivery – order all your print in one go

Think about all the print you might need as a business. While it might seem counterintuitive, it actually makes more sense to order it all in one go if you can. You can add up to 10 print jobs to your basket and only pay one delivery cost – so if you’ve got a few things to order for the rest of 2021, place one big order to save on delivery.

Save on re-opening costs

Posters

While it may still feel tough now, things will change and who knows where we’ll be two, three or even six months from now. Once you’ve planned your print budget for the immediate future, it’s time to look ahead and see how you could keep saving once restrictions start to be lifted.

Save money with multipurpose print

Once stores and spaces start to reopen, think about the kinds of print you might be using day to day.

If you’re going to regularly print things such as Leaflets, Vouchers, Loyalty and Appointment Cards or even POS for marketing, have you thought about making them multipurpose? This saves money in the long run and is much greener as well.

Double-sided printing is an easy way to tag-team your marketing. If you’re planning on running regular promotions, create a simple sales message on one side of your Posters, Table Talkers or Signs that are generic enough to be used repeatedly and then add your specific promotion or branding to the other side.

Tackle the fade with sturdy print choices

One of the simplest ways to save money on any print is to make it reusable. Luckily, we offer plenty of sturdy print solutions. For future sales and promotions, Roller Banners and Reusable Vinyl easily go up and down and can last you months and even years if you take care of them.

Top Tip: When storing things such as Posters or Banners for later use, make sure to keep them out of places with direct sunlight or moisture to stop them fading. When rolling them up, keep them in a cardboard box or tube if you can to stop them getting damaged in transit. Plus you can add a touch of lamination. This gives a range of our print some added protection and lets you disinfect and wipe them down. We even have an anti-bacterial gloss option which prevents 95% of bacteria surviving on its surface.

Help each other out

A little kindness can go a long way, especially during times of lockdown and restriction. So if you want to help out a friend or fellow business, check out some of our initiatives that will help you both save.

Refer a friend

With our Refer a Friend programme, for every one of your friends that sign up with us, you’ll earn £20 worth of points to spend. Plus, your friend will save 20% on the first three orders they place. Perfect if you’ve got some business contacts or creative friends you’d like to help out.
