Helping you navigate your way through this frantic festive season, we’ve devised a handy A-Z Christmas list for your printing needs. And while this list is not exclusive (try finding products beginning with Y and Z!) it gives you a brief overview of what you might want to stock up on in the run up to the busiest and most wonderful time of the year.
Advancements in print
We like to keep ahead of trends, which is why we are constantly introducing new product innovations. Leading the way is original white ink which is available on business cards, leaflets & flyers and postcards – perfect if you’re dreaming of a white Christmas! And remember to stay tuned next year, when we launch laser-cutting as well as a whole host of other exciting product developments.
Make your own pricing brochures, catalogues and promotional material with either saddle stitched or perfect bound brochures. Try our new DL and A4 landscape orientations for a generous, long layout; giving you the perfect opportunity to show off your new collection come 2017.
A great gift to your clients could put you ahead of your competitors. Our corporate gifts, including calendars, bookmarks and notebooks are perfect for putting you in pole position for that big account. Make sure you order in time before everyone heads for the holidays!
Versatile large format printing is great for plugging those last-minute promotions. However, it’s not just a tool for the advertisers out there, display boards are great for printing artwork to hang up in the home.
