Litho & Digital Printing for Greenwich Kitchen, SE10

Greenwich-Kitchen-Montage-1038x512Our featured customer this time is Greenwich Kitchen which has kept us busy with printing for various items recently.

The printing:

Recent print jobs included:

  • A5 leaflets which we digitally printed onto 190gsm ‘Offset’ stock;
  • Menu Sheets which we litho printed onto the same stock. These were printed via the litho process because they required spot Pantone colours;
  • Business cards were also printed using our litho presses as, again, they required spot Pantone colours;
  • We also produced artwork and printing of custom greaseproof paper for the kitchen, spot colour printed in their corporate Pantone colour.

Posters, Leaflets & Flyers for ‘Bang Said The Gun’

Posters, Leaflets & Flyers for ‘Bang Said The Gun’We’re delighted that ‘Bang Said the Gun‘ is one of our regular printing customers here at Southside Print London Bridge. They regularly come in for poster and flyer printing.

The printing

We produce posters sized from A4 to A2 for Bang Said the Gun. The A2 posters are printed on 190gsm photo satin finish on our large format printers while the smaller posters, hand-outs and A5 flyers and leaflets are printed single-sided onto 170gsm silk paper stock using the same artwork. The results are stand-out pieces with quite a unique, quirky look. Anyone who knows anything about Bang Said the Gun will not be surprised …

The Live Shows

Bang Said the Gun, as they say themselves, is performance poetry, ‘for people who don’t like poetry‘ and it’s packing in audiences on Thursday nights on Great Dover Street, London SE1. Bang are ‘hell bent on turning poetry and spoken word into bold, raw entertainment and making it accessible to as many people as possible’, referring to it as ‘Mud Wrestling with Words’ (also the name of their first published book*).  The result is a new, completely original, kind of live show which completely turns the concept of live poetry on its head. The National Theatre’s Inua Ellams agrees and is author to one of many gushing testimonials on the Bang website.

“Last night’s show was BRILLIANT, I mean stupendously so; I have never had so much fun … Incredible job; to have created not just a vibe, but a look, a sound, a style, an aesthetic so simply – entirely it’s own amongst all the live shows – is just stunning …”

Clearly an evening with Bang Said the Gun knocks one’s socks off! People really love it and The Times agrees, voting it the Best poetry gig in the UK. Two of Bang’s regular performers are Read more

Digital Printing for The Academy of Greatness

Digital Printing for The Academy of GreatnessWe would like to thank Darren Eden of The Academy of Greatness for being a regular customer of Southside Print here in London Bridge so thought we’d highlight a little about them, and some of the printing work involved, here on the blog.

Recent printing work

Some of the sales and marketing collateral, or other course support literature, recently produced for The Academy of Greatness includes flyers, brochures, name badges, customer agreement forms, registration forms and other documents for use by course participants.  This literature was printed in-house on our digital presses and some of it can be seen in the image above.

In this particular case, the design and artwork was supplied by the customer although at Southside Print London Bridge we do offer graphic design as an optional service for those who need it.

All items were printed digitally and paper stock used was as follows:

  • The Transformation brochure and the flyer were printed on ‘Colotech Natural White’ paper stock, weight 160gsm;
  • The registration forms were printed on ‘Conqueror High White Wove’, also using a weight of 160gsm
  • A further form for participants was printed onto ‘Navigator’ paper, with a weight of 80gsm;
  • Finally some name badges were digitally printed onto ‘Advocate’ card with a weight of 300gsm.

The Academy of Greatness

Simply put, the goal of The Academy of Greatness is to empower people to actually live the life they’d truly love to live. This is summed up on their website as “Empowering you in your imagination and intuition to live your Greatness“. Founded and run by Darren Eden, the organisation Read more

Design & Print for Tranquility Pilates Centre

Tranquility-masthead2For some time, Southside Print London Bridge has produced design, artwork and printing for Tranquility Pilates Centre in London’s Blackfriars.  Work supplied to them includes A4 leaflets, business cards, posters, flyers, manuals and more. The most recent flyers and leaflets were printed on our digital printing presses in full colour using 350gsm stock (gloss or silk finish), while the posters were printed on a 190gsm ‘photo satin’ stock then finished with a gloss laminate for protection. We also printed and supplied a tall display banner and this was sized at 2m high by 850mm wide once assembled (also available 1m wide). The roller banners we supply are very ergonomic and robust. They are very easy and quick to assemble and also a breeze to store because they collapse down into a very compact size using an innovative cartridge system — and even come with a handy carrying bag. The banner print itself uses a high quality 400gsm paper with anti-curl, anti-scuff and anti-glare properties so will look fantastic and stand the test of time.

What’s really great to hear is that people have recently been making some nice comments about the design and printing:

“Re the new flyers you did last month….. people have commented on how good they look! Thank you!!”

Printing for online furniture retailer Swoon Editions

Swoon-Editions-Masthead4When writing is part of your job there is a risk that, every once in a while, you will write about something which is so interesting that you spend three times as long researching it as you should! This blog post for Swoon Editions is such a case. Founded in 2012, Swoon Editions was the brainchild of Debbie Williamson and Brian Harrison whose joint vision was to create an online destination where you could buy beautifully designed, hand-crafted furniture at incredibly low prices. They made this possible by starting with limited production batches, minimising warehousing and overheads, and providing products straight from their artisan workshops direct to customers’ homes.

With their furniture falling into categories such as Retro, Shabby Chic, French Style, Industrial Edge and Contemporary to name just a few, their impressive range — and business model — are truly inspired. So too are the many accessories which are also available on the website; rugs, quilts, beautiful storage boxes and more. All items are hand-made by carefully selected craftsmen from around the world.

Swoon HQ is on Southwark Bridge Road in London’s SE1, just a stone’s throw from Southside Print London Bridge, so we were an obvious choice when they started looking for a commercial printing company. We print their letterheads, compliments slips and other stationery as well as recently supplying a suite of 14 full colour, A4, foam board information cards for their own internal use. We supplied the information display cards ‘same day’ and, as only one of each card was required, these were an ideal application for our digital printing service.
