Trust

Trust is one of the 'Joys' I get from doing what I do. I have been doing a sales course and one of the first things we had to do was think about our Value/Joy/Profit triangle. Looking at the Joy part, I do love what I do, but it got me thinking more about what exactly I love about my business. A few examples would be: I love working with clients on projects. I love their reactions when you deliver a great piece of work. I love finding new products. I love managing clients orders and delivering great products. But one area I hadn't really…

Don’t lose sales due to a lack of information

I was in a shop recently and there was some interesting products that I liked the look of. But there was a big problem. There was no information, prices or any other details on display. And to be honest it was busy and hot and I couldn't be bothered to ask a member of staff. So I just walked out. So due to a lack of easily available information on display the shop lost at least one sale that day. It's hard to get people into your shop or restaurant, don't undo that work by not having the…

FAW Cup Semi Final Programmes

It has been a very busy time recently with programmes and the latest one we have sent to print is the FAW Cup Semi Final programme. The matches are this weekend and the programmes are currently in production to be ready for delivery in time for the two games. The programmes have been designed using the FC Cymru branding which is carried through all of the programmes we are producing for the FAW this season. It gives a nice consistency of style across all of the programmes. Due to the size of the print run and short time frame these are being printed digitally. [caption…

New Look for Okazaki

Following a management change at our client Okazaki last year they decided they would like a new look for their branding. This wasn’t to be a re-brand as their logo wasn’t changing but they did want a re-fresh on the overall look of their brand across all of their print and on-line media. Following an initial meeting with the client to discuss their brief we went away to develop a few concepts of how their new branding would look. We presented the client with 3 concepts – shown in the pictures on this article – and following a few minor tweaks they decided to go…

Cardiff Ardwyn Singers

We were approached by a couple of the members of the Cardiff Ardwyn Singers about book publishing as they were looking to create a book telling the story of the choir which was about to celebrate its 50th anniversary. They had heard of us through a recommendation from a historical society for whom we had published another book a year so earlier. Cardiff Ardwyn Singers had the copy written and with our advice got all of their images scanned, and everything was presented to us to create the finished product. We began by creating a few cover designs and a few inner page layouts for the…

Why use a Print Manager?

This is a question that I get asked a lot by potential clients, and although I may be a little biased in my opinions I genuinely feel that there are several reasons why it is good to use a print manager. Here are my thoughts on three of those reasons: 1 ) It’s convenient.. A Print Manager will be able to offer a wide range of print solutions whether that be a short run of flyers or 1000’s of catalogues. Most printers will tend to specialize in a certain area. So you may have a project that requires several different items of various different configurations…

Pencoed House Brochures

This is a lovely brochure we produced recently for one of the design agencies that we work with on a regular basis. It was for their client Pencoed House Estate, and the brochure is to promote their hotel as a wedding venue. The brochure was A4 landscape, with a minimalist cover where the branding and other text was produced using a Gold foil. We used a nice silk stock throughout which helped to bring our the quality of the images and the overall design.
