Plus, if you’re ever unsure, our friendly UK-based customer service team is always on hand to walk you through any queries.

University Print for Societies

With Fresher’s Fayres on the horizon, you want to make sure your society stands out- especially when there’s a whole sea of students to entice.

Whether you’re a Fencing, Sci-fi or Wine and Cheese society, you want to make your stand as noticeable as you possibly can. Why not showcase all the fun you offer on Display Boards, or create the biggest presence you can with Roller Banners?  Easy to install and put away they’re perfect to reuse year after year!

Once you’ve brought people to your space, make a lasting impact with some standout collateral that they can take away. Print important society details on Postcards or create some fun society Stickers to hand out. With round, rectangle and even heart-shaped sticker options and fun finishes like foiling, you’ll soon be fending off a huge influx of new members with a broom!

University Print for Open Days

When hosting an Open Day, your print can make or break the event.

To make every attendee as informed as possible, create an Open Day welcome pack for every attendee. This should include:

  • A map
  • A timetable
  • promos (to show what you’ve got coming up – shows/fairs/fetes etc.)
  • Freebies (Pens, Notebooks, Postcards- all a great reminders of the day)

 Not everyone is good with maps, so you’re going to want clear Signage all around your Open Day event as well. Clearly highlight different areas of campus as well as which talks are going on where. You can use arrows to point people in the right direction, so no one gets lost on the way.

It’s a good idea to ask existing students to help as well. From holding up signs to helping point people in the right direction, your manpower is a great resource.
