Brochure Printers in London

Brochure printers in London SE1

 

Are you looking for brochure printers in London? Southside Print produce brochures and booklets for customers throughout the SE1 region, London Bridge, Borough, Southwark, London, the South East and beyond. We’re fast, economical and produce high quality printing along with design and artwork services if required.

Folded brochuresWe’re digital brochure printers

Our digital printing process is hard to beat when it comes to the quality of the printed brochures produced. Colours are vibrant and consistent from the first page to the very last. Images and text are sharp and clear and our finishing processes are also every bit as good. So whether you’re looking at the fine detail, the quality of the folding and trimming or the professionalism used in the binding process, you can rely on us to produce a first class job that’ll make you, your brand, your product or service look a million dollars, at an affordable price.

Binding options

We can supply printed brochures using a variety of different binding mechanisms. For example:

  • Folded brochures like four pagers, six pagers, gate-folded brochures and concertina brochures. These are each formed from a single piece of paper or card that is simply creased and folded to make multiple pages and sides. These are fast and economical to produce and keep things very, very simple.
  • Wire-O bound brochuresTraditional saddle-stitched brochures (stapled with two wires at the folded spine). Perfect for no-frills brochures, newsletters, product booklets and reports that have multiple pages (8 pages or more).
  • Wire-O bound brochures and booklets. These use a coloured metal coil or comb that binds the pages together through a series of neatly punched holes. The wire comes in a variety of different colours, for example, black, white, red, etc. Wire-O bound booklets are perfect for manuals, information booklets, presentations and even bespoke writing pads.
  • Perfect bound brochures and booklets. These take a form similar to that of a soft-bound, paperback book. So, the spine has a thickness with a flat surface that can be printed. Internal pages are glued into the spine and a heavier weight card usually forms the outer cover into which the pages are glued. Perfect binding is suitable for books, annual reports, high-end brochures, magazines and catalogues.

Perfect bound brochuresFinishing options

Printed brochures can also include a variety of different finishes …

  • Lamination to the outer covers includes matt, ‘soft touch’ and gloss options. Laminated covers are protected from moisture and are more resistant to wear and tear than their non-laminated equivalents. Matt lamination flattens contrast and gives brochures and booklets a fresh, contemporary feel. Gloss lamination gives brochures a high gloss look at the same time as making colours saturated and images more contrasty, for extra punch. ‘Soft touch’ lamination is similar in looks to matt lamination but has a velvety, slightly rubbery feel to the touch.
  • Metal foiling. At Southside Print we now offer digital foiling which is faster and more convenient than traditional foil blocking (which requires extra time and budget to produce a metal foiling die). Our digital foiling process takes place entirely in-house and is available in several colours, not just standard gold or silver.
  • Let the paper do all the work. It’s amazing how effective different papers and cards can be, all on their own. A brochure or booklet that uses uncoated paper or card has a natural, contemporary feel to it. In contrast, a brochure that uses coated stock tends to look more corporate and a little more traditional. It’s a tricky balance, though, because coated papers will ‘lift’ the ink to make the graphics and text more punchy while uncoated printing papers and cards tend to mute the colours in comparison. Each has their place, though, and any preference is a purely subjective thing.
  • Take it to the next level and mix it up. Taking all of this a step or two further, you could consider textured papers or cards, which will literally give your brochures and booklets a whole new ‘feel’. Textured covers can bring an extremely high quality aspect to any brochure or booklet — even more so when you also incorporate the aforementioned metallic foiling to the graphics on the cover. It’s a superb combination!

Printing & Design for Annual Reports

Annual report printing & design services

Does your company, charity or organisation produce an Annual Report? If so, you’ll be well aware of how much time and effort they take to produce each year and how many people it takes to put them together correctly — from the CEO, Financial Director, Chief Executive and Company Secretary right through to the Marketing Team and probably many others along the way. They also involve important milestones and key dates that need to be met, not least legal deadlines that simply can’t be missed, along with the need to produce printed copies in time for any AGM.

Annual report & accounts exampleAnnual Report Design & Printing Has to be Top Notch

Your report and accounts needs to be accurate, of course, and also extremely well presented. After all it’s pretty much a flagship document that can help with anything from marketing your company, products or services to raising finance and, of course, keeping any shareholders in the loop and happy to continue supporting your organisation. So it needs to look exceptionally good in terms of both design and production.

Exceptional Graphic Designers & Printers

That’s where Southside Print comes in. Not only can our in-house graphic designers help put the design and artwork together in an attractive, informative and professional manner, but we can also ensure that the finished printing does your company, charity or organisation absolute justice. Annual reports need to look exceptional so the design needs to be high quality and the printed finish needs to exude excellence throughout.

Materials & Finishes

  • Selection of materials needs extra care. Annual reports need to look a million dollars, without costing an arm and a leg, so it’s a fine balance. They also need to reflect your organisation’s profile when it comes to sustainability — should they use recycled paper or card, for example?
  • Covers need to be thick enough to feel like they’re high value without costing a fortune.
  • Internal pages could, perhaps, be a little thicker than your average brochure, as this is an important document. However, a lid needs to be kept on that overall budget.
  • And it doesn’t end there. As this is such a critical document, you need to consider additional finishes and processes. For example, covers could be matt or gloss laminated to enrich the printing and give them attractive finishes as well as protecting them from moisture and wear and tear.
  • You might also consider spot finishes such as gloss UV varnish (or its digital equivalent) and metallic foil. These can really lift your annual report and accounts out of the ordinary.

Southside Print can, of course, help with all such things — it’s what we excel at and our advice is free.

Production of Additional Documents

Annual reports often require additional documents such as Summary Financial Statements, AGM booklets, Voting papers, newsletter style documents, overprinted envelopes and mass-produced covering letters. Any of these documents, particularly the latter, often benefit from Read more

Printing for Bankside Open Spaces Trust, London SE1

Printing for Bankside Open Spaces Trust, London SE1

Regular readers may recall our post about Bankside Open Spaces Trust (‘BOST’) back in August 2015. Well, they’ve continued to keep us busy ever since, with a huge variety of different printing requirements, and have even updated their logo and corporate identity in the intervening time. In view of all that, we thought we’d bring things up to date in a new post here on the Southside Print blog.

  • A full colour mini brochure
  • Overprinted, branded envelopes, digitally printed in black and white plus tints
  • Strikingly designed, full colour printed postcards (A6 size)
  • A4 leaflets/flyers for a lunchtime talk all about Octavia Hill, the founder of The National Trust

About Bankside Open Spaces Trust

Full colour printed postcard for Bankside Open Spaces Trust, SouthwarkAs we outlined before, BOST is an award-winning environmental and volunteering charity that was set up with the primary purpose of creating and improving gardens and parks, along with green and open spaces, in and around the Bankside region. These include 30 or so community gardens where sustainable food is grown for the direct benefit of those living in the social housing nearby. People local to the area may also notice the cheerful planters placed around the neighbourhood by BOST volunteers. By doing all of this, the Bankside area is improved and the community involved in the initiative is brought closer together. It’s a win-win for everyone in SE1.

We make previously unloved spaces beautiful

Some of the green spaces looked after by the Trust include Red Cross Garden, Marlborough Sports Garden, Waterloo Millennium Green and Tate Community Garden. Indeed, some of their green spaces are amongst the very best in Britain, having gained many awards including two Green Flags and two Golds in RHS London in Bloom, a silver in RHS Britain in Bloom, the UNESCO Man and Biosphere award, the MPGA London Spade award and London in Bloom Champion of Champions award.

The charity’s Community Green Champions initiative allows those living in estates around Southwark and Lambeth to grow fruit, vegetables, flowers and plants right outside their own front doors. The Trust encourages people throughout the area – including those without gardens – to take part. Many later go on to have horticultural careers.

Meanwhile, their Future Gardeners ten week course helps the unemployed or those struggling to make a career change get into the horticultural arena and to earn themselves a City & Guilds qualification. Careers advice is also available as are introductions within the horticultural sector and within many of London’s best parks and gardens. There are three courses per year with the next one starting in May 2019, so check out their website if the courses are of potential interest.

The Value of Great Graphic Design

The value of great graphic design

Never underestimate the power of graphic design. It has the power to either make or break your sales and marketing efforts. Too many people dismiss design as an unnecessary expense but, in reality, it is incredibly important to your bottom line. As such, it deserves an adequate allowance of both time and budget otherwise you risk wasting both those precious commodities entirely. In this post, we’ll explain why skimping on your graphic design budget may represent a fool’s economy. Not convinced? Read on …

Think about it for a moment: what is the single most important thing that world-dominating companies like Apple have at their core? Answer: excellent design. Without that, their products would simply be buried in an ocean that’s littered with hundreds of mediocre products. Excellent design lifts them high above the competition and also makes their products desirable. And once converted, famously few Apple customers ever go back.

It’s the same for printed sales and marketing pieces, adverts and packaging. Looking mediocre is a sure fire way for your promotional efforts to be completely overlooked in the ‘din’ of other mediocre efforts that compete in your marketplace. Excellent design, in contrast, will both attract and entice your potential audience so they notice and desire your product or service, not those of your competitor. Yet so many companies miss this simple opportunity by seeing design as an unnecessary expense rather than the incredibly powerful marketing tool that it is!

Let’s break down the main components of graphic design …

Good Design = Good Communication

Graphic design is about much more than how your sales and marketing pieces look. Good graphic design primarily has great communication at its heart. It’s all very well if your leaflet, brochure, poster or packaging looks attractive, but that’s no good to anyone if they don’t understand, in an instant, what it’s all about and what is on offer. So, one of the first considerations of any good graphic designer is to identify what the core message is and then to communicate that message prominently to the prospective audience. A good graphic designer will also pick out any secondary and subsequent message elements, making sure that each is communicated with the appropriate weighting in the sales or marketing piece. Using this hierarchical approach to the prominence of elements and messages will mean that the prospective customer knows where to look first and thereby learn quickly what is being offered and why.

Good graphic design primarily has great communication at its heart.

Features & Benefits

Once the product or service being offered has been made clear, another job of a good graphic designer is to make sure that the features and benefits of the product or service are also clearly communicated to those taking a closer look. Features are no good alone, of course; the prospect needs to know how those features will benefit them — so don’t forget to include your product or service’s benefits in the printed text.

Looking Good

Then, of course, the printed communication needs to look eye-catching and attractive. The right graphical and typographical styles, photos and/or illustrations need to be presented in such a way that they catch the eye, communicate all the right messages as outlined above, all in a pleasing way. The ‘tone’ of the design also needs to be right. If your product or service is a luxury one, then the design and printed output needs to ooze quality. If your product or service is an inexpensive bargain, then the designer needs to pitch the design just right so that it looks high quality overall but does not look or feel too expensive. This fine balance is all part of the job of a good graphic designer.

Feeling Good

Part of that balance is, of course, the paper, card and print processes used in the final printing. Some printed items look better on textured papers and cards, others work better on uncoated stock and still others might look best on standard paper with, say, a matt lamination. There are many paper options and many finishing options to choose from, so good graphic designers will also be able to advise on what might work best for your particular product or service — and production budget. The optimum result will be a printed item that both looks and feels good, without breaking the bank.

It’s All a Waste without a CTA

Once all of the above has been considered, then you’re well on your way to ‘converting’ your prospect’s interest into an actual sale. However, there’s one more thing that needs to be included. Remember to Read more

Booklet Printing for Inspirational SE1 Charity

Booklet printing for SE1 charity

Just up the road in Union Street SE1 is the headquarters of United St Saviour’s Charity (‘UStSC’), who recently commissioned Southside Print to produce two A5 landscape booklets. Both were printed in full colour on our digital presses here in Tabard Street. They were printed on 200gsm Lumi Silk paper, a high quality coated stock with a significant thickness to give the booklets substance and a feel of real quality. 100 were produced for one booklet and 500 for the other, suiting our digital printing service perfectly — those modest quantities simply would not have been economically viable using a traditional litho printing service.

  • The first booklet was a twelve page publication called “The Value of Small Grants”. It represented a review of the impact of grants issued in South London by both UStSC and Peter Minet Trust.
  • The second booklet was called “Where to look for grants and funding”. This was a guide to help groups in Southwark find funding for their local activities. The cover of each booklet can be seen above in the main image.
  • Southside Print also produced 1000 A5 leaflets, which promoted a community open day, along with some A4 leaflets (not shown).

St Saviour's House, Union Street, London SE1About United St Saviour’s Charity, SE1

United St Saviour’s Charity is based in an attractive period building in Union Street SE1, just a short walk from London Bridge and Borough stations. They focus on uniting people and charitable organisations in north Southwark. Part of this includes the provision of two community grant programmes along with high quality sheltered housing for older people in the area.

Grant Programmes

Their open grant initiatives include the Community Investment Programme for large grants and the Community Engagement Programme for smaller grants. Both aim to strengthen communities in north Southwark, improve the lives of older residents in the area and level the playing field for those who may be experiencing social and economic disadvantage. North Southwark is very much ‘a tale of two Southwarks’ where one part of the population is benefiting from the recent growth and regeneration of the area while others simply struggle to make ends meet. In the last twelve months, the charity has invested £1 million into local projects and activities that are now helping to redress this imbalance.

Sheltered Housing

The sheltered housing element of UStSC’s work takes the form of two schemes; St Saviour’s Court, which provides 53 modern homes in Purley, and Hopton Gardens Almshouses, which provide twenty flats and Grade II period cottages in Hopton Street, SE1. Both schemes include 24 hour support services for the residents. To be eligible, applicants need to have worked in Southwark for at least 3 years before application, they must be 65 or older, have low income and capital and be able to live independently with help from carers if necessary.

The charity is also planning a brand new modern almshouse in Southwark Park Road in Bermondsey. It is currently in preliminary talks with the developer Delancey and architects Witherford Watson Mann and their shared vision for the new building is one of stunning quality and beauty. As well as providing modern, independent sheltered housing for older residents with limited income, the aim is also to Read more

Printing for Tabard Barbers, Tabard Street, SE1

Printing for Tabard Barbers, London SE1

Just along the road from Southside Print is Tabard Barbers. One of our nearest SE1 clients, they’ve been keeping us busy recently with quite a few different printing jobs — and very smart they look too. These include:

  • Printed loyalty and student cards for Tabard Barbers, London SE15000 full colour, digitally printed student ‘information’ cards. These can be thought of as both flyers and postcards depending upon your point of view. Their purpose is to publicise the special offers available to students during a period between September and the end of November 2018. They were printed on 350gsm card-weight material, sized at A6 in a landscape format and were printed to both sides.
  • Full colour, digitally printed loyalty cards for use by their customers. One version was for men and another for women. They were printed the size of standard credit cards, a size that’s convenient to store in one’s wallet, purse or pocket. One side was left uncoated so it can be rubber stamped each time the customer in question receives a hair cut or treatment of some kind, the idea being that they receive a free cut or treatment once they’ve filled the card with 9 stamps (the tenth being free). The other side was ‘soft touch’ laminated so that the cards feel good, look attractive and are protected from wear, tear and moisture. They were designed and artworked by a local design company based in Borough SE1.
    Loyalty cards are a great marketing tool for businesses such as hair salons, barbers and cafés. They quietly encourage repeat business from customers and this loyalty means more profit for those businesses using them. And, because the customer benefits too once they’ve filled their card, it’s a win-win for everyone.
  • A full colour, digitally printed poster (shown below, right). This was sized at A1, so utilised our large format inkjet printing service. It was mounted to Foam-X, so it was both light weight and rigid.

About Tabard Barbers

Tabard Barbers one of our closest neighbours, being just along the road from Southside Print at 13 Tabard Street, from which they took their name. A1 poster digitally printed by Southside Print, SE1These days, as being a men’s barber, Tabard is a women’s hair salon which offers outstandingly good value compared to other hair salons in the area, under the fantastic management of the very talented Cece. At Tabard, it’s the full package; you will receive a warm welcome and complimentary refreshments along with “the very best hair styling, grooming and treatments in town” as it says on their website. Men’s grooming services include anything from a buzz cut to a beard trim while ladies’ services include a professional wash, cut and blow dry, hair ups, highlights, comprehensive colouring, bleaching and various treatments. Discounts are also available for students and children up to the age of 14 (see their site for details).

Tabard had an impressive ‘designer’ make-over in recent years and now skilfully combines ultra-modern interior design with historical details like exposed brickwork and stripped floorboards. Indeed, the building’s basement still contains the ancient ovens, which survived from a time when the building was used as a bakery long ago. These were discovered during renovations.

The salon and barbers is now one of the oldest family-run businesses in SE1 and Southwark. It has been in Tabard Street for nearly forty years, having been passed down the generations to the current owner, Dasos Anastasis. Read more

Looking for an ‘Order of Service’ Printer?

 

Order of Service printer in London Bridge & SE1

Are you looking for an Order of Service printer for a wedding, funeral or other type of ceremony? We can help with the printing and design if so.

The ceremony itself can be for a wedding, civil ceremony, renewal of vows, a blessing, funeral, remembrance service, religious ceremony and so on. For any of these, an ‘Order of Service’ will be a very useful and welcoming document for the guests who will be attending.

An Order of Service programme is usually produced in a booklet format although can sometimes take the form of a simple double-sided card. At Southside Print, we can design and print it in whatever style you prefer, of course; after all, every ceremony is different.

Typical Content

The front of an Order of Service programme usually shows who and what the ceremony is for along with a time, date and venue.

Then, either on the front or inside, it usually outlines, step by step, what will happen during a ceremony, all in the correct order. The steps can include a welcome message followed by things like readings, hymns, prayers, poems, blessings, music (each usually noting the author etc.), the ceremony itself, perhaps the signing of the register if it’s a wedding — and so on.

Sometimes on the back page, the organiser may choose to thank the guests for coming and to acknowledge key people for their input during the event. These may include anyone who spoke during the ceremony along with, perhaps, naming and thanking people like bridesmaids, the ushers and so on. The back may also mention details for any reception if it’s a wedding or civil ceremony, and how to make donations (often given in lieu of flowers) if it’s a funeral.

Design & Printing Style

Each ceremony is unique and therefore the Order of Service booklet that goes with it should also be unique. Those organising the event will often have a particular look and feel in mind too, so the design style of Order of Service programmes varies widely. The exact type of ceremony will also have a bearing on the most appropriate look and style, of course, so a design for a funeral programme will often look more restrained than one for a wedding. This is where Southside Print can help. We have in-house designers who can take your brief and turn it into exactly what you have in mind for your particular ceremony. With printing and finishing services all in-house too, it means that we can turn the whole job around very quickly and cost-effectively. Our facilities include lamination along with digital foiling, which can really lift your Order of Service away from the ordinary and give it a feel of real quality, all without breaking the bank. So, whether your Order of Service is a multi-page booklet or a simple double-sided card, we can make it look smart and extremely professional.

We also design and print wedding stationery, invitations, table cards, menus, Save the Date cards etcWe also Print Invites, Thank You Cards, Stationery etc.

We can also design and print invites, Thank You cards, Save the Date cards and other wedding/ceremony stationery for you along with place setting name cards, menus, table cards, large format table plans and pretty much anything that requires printing for your special event.

Fancy Papers

Another of the things that can make your Order of Service programme and any related stationery really stand out is specialist paper or card. Ask us about this as we have many different options to choose from including textured stocks, tinted stocks, luxury stocks, recycled papers and even luxury lined envelopes. Using any of these can really make your printed piece look superb!

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.

The video below explains more and features both Will and Peter, who both now Read more
