Restored Artwork for Restorative Justice

Restored Artwork for Restorative Justice

Sometimes even a supposedly simple piece of design and artwork can meet with unforeseen complications, which can then make printing seemingly impossible. That’s exactly what happened with some business cards for our local client Why Me? recently, when their original artwork went completely missing. They’d had some fairly straight forward business cards produced in the past, but couldn’t locate the original artwork files. That’s where Southside Print’s Matt Potter came to the rescue. Matt is Southside Print’s resident graphic designer. He simply used some of the last few remaining cards as visual reference and, based on those, managed to rebuild the artwork entirely from scratch. He successfully matched fonts, colours, the layout and the design and, in no time at all, the ‘new’ business cards had been printed and supplied to the client — a great outcome for everyone.

Lost your Artwork? Need it Restored?

No problem at all. As with the business cards above, we can usually match fonts or find something very similar if an exact match is not possible. We can also match colours, design layouts and often we can even reproduce or substitute missing graphics. While some graphics are easier to replace than others, our talented design and artwork team can usually save the day and rescue the situation in virtually every case. That’s true whether it’s for business cards, leaflets, brochures or something larger like a poster or display panel. We can supply a free quotation before proceeding, of course, so you’ve nothing to lose by asking us for potential help.

About ‘Why Me?’

Why Me? is a national charity that primarily helps victims of crime to attain some kind of restorative justice. As part of this, the charity’s Restorative Justice Service helps offenders to understand the true impact of their crimes which, in turn, can often help to stop them re-offending in the future. Indeed, this is exactly how the charity started life …

The charity was started by Will Riley, himself a victim of crime. Back in 2002 when Will was a London businessman, a burglar gained entry to his house. Will confronted the burglar, a struggle ensued and Will eventually managed to hand the burglar over to the police. It turned out that the burglar was a career criminal named Peter Woolf. Woolf was sent to prison for the crime but the two men later met again voluntarily at a ‘Restorative Justice’ meeting at Pentonville Prison.

“Imagine the person who has caused you harm is sitting opposite… What would you say?”

Will, the victim, was able to explain the impact of the burglary directly to the offender in question and to obtain answers to some challenging questions. This process turned out to be a healing one and represented quite a turning point for both men. Will Riley subsequently felt that he was no longer fearful of opening his front door and Peter Woolf stopped offending completely, going ‘straight’ after many years of crime. Not only did both men directly benefit but also it meant that potentially hundreds of additional people did not become victims of the burglar once he left prison. Such is the power and potential of Restorative Justice.

‘Click & Collect’ Printing in London SE1

Click & Collect printing in London SE1

As we said in our last post, one of the great things about our new online print shop is the ability to order and pay for your printing 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. So, even if it’s the weekend, a Bank Holiday, Christmas Day or 3am in the morning, you can still order your printing without needing to leave your home or office. Of course, you can also order on the go from your mobile device.  Either way, you can then tick one more thing off your ‘to do’ list, safe in the knowledge that your job is now already heading into production.

What’s even better, though, is that companies and organisations close to London Bridge, Borough and SE1 can ‘Click & Collect’. There are several benefits:

Click & Collect printing from Tabard Street, London SE1‘Click & Collect’ is Convenient

When ordering online, simply select ‘Collect in store’ in the Delivery section and then you can collect your printing from our London SE1 shop as soon as it’s ready. Collect at any time during our office hours (9am to 5.30pm week days) or call us to see if we’re likely to be around outside of those hours. Click & Collect means you don’t need to wait in for a delivery and also your printing is going to be as fresh as the moment it came off the printing press.

Click & Collect is Faster

Another huge benefit of Click & Collect is that you can usually get your printing a day sooner than is possible with the ‘delivered’ option.

True 24/7 convenience for print ordering in London & SE1.

Re-Order with a Couple of Clicks

Once you’ve ordered once from our new online print shop, you can log in at any time to see a record of current and historical orders. This makes re-ordering a breeze — simply find a previous order in your account and re-order it without having to start again from scratch. That’s both convenient and a great time-saver!

Rescue Unfinished Orders

Even incomplete orders are included in your order history! Let’s say you were running late for a meeting or were interrupted at the last minute so couldn’t complete your online order. No problem at all — as long as you were logged in when you began, simply log in again when you’re ready to resume and you’ll see your unfinished order right there in your free account. Simply click ‘View’ against the incomplete order concerned and take the final steps to finish it off. With just a click or two, it’ll be queued in our system and heading directly to production.

Know When your Print will be Ready

You’ll know when your order will be ready right away. On every print product order screen, it shows the date that your printing will be ready. In fact two dates are shown — a ‘collect by’ date and a ‘delivery by’ date. So, simply choose whether you would like to collect from the shop or whether you’d prefer to have your printing delivered to your door (usually one working day later than the collection option). Either way, the price is the same*.

Online Printing – from Business Cards to Stationery, Leaflets & Posters

Whether you opt for Free Delivery or Click & Collect, you can order an ever-growing selection of printed products. At time of writing, these include* business cards, stationery packs, letterheads, compliments slips, leaflets (folded or unfolded) and posters (A4 to A0 sizes).
