Printing for SE1 Cafés, Bars, Pubs & Restaurants

Printing for SE1 Cafés, Bars, Pubs & Restaurants

This post is for anyone running a food and drink establishment in SE1 and beyond. Whether you run a café, bar, bistro, restaurant, pizzeria, burger bar, coffee house, public house or even a hotel, you should find something useful here.

At Southside Print, we print a huge variety of items for eating and drinking establishments throughout Borough, London Bridge, SE1 and London generally. These include anything from menus and posters to banners and table talkers. We’ll cover a more complete list below.

We’re based in Tabard Street in London’s SE1 region, so are right in the middle of a hugely popular community with busy cafés, restaurants, bars and even high quality street food around many corners — it’s absolutely thriving. ‘Foodies’ have a massive choice of different foods on tap, from every continent of the globe. Choose Italian food, Greek, Indian, Chinese, French, Turkish — in fact pretty much any kind of food you can think of will be catered for in London’s SE1. It’s a paradise for the hungry! It also means that, as printers, we’re incredibly used to supplying just the right printed sales and marketing collateral for anyone running an eating and drinking establishment.

Examples of what we can print include:

Menus for Simply Indian restaurantMenus & Menu Covers

We produce a great many different types of printed menu. So, whether you require the whole menu made into a booklet, a traditional fold-out printed menu, or just a protective printed cover in which to house your own in-house print-outs, we can help. There are lots of options and these also include matt or gloss lamination or encapsulation to protect your menus from food or drink spillage and to make them last far longer. We print using an on demand digital process and that means we can supply just one menu if that’s all you need, or a much larger quantity. See the images (right and above) for just a couple of different menu examples. Click any of them for a larger view.

Table talker exampleTable-Talkers

Many eating and drinking establishments also have a stand-up, folded information card of some kind on every table and sometimes also at the till. These ‘table-talkers’ as they’re known, can tell customers about special offers, today’s specials, or about some kind of loyalty club or scheme. We can print and produce these for you, of course. Table-talkers are a great way to impart your sales message to a captive audience if you place one at every table. As with menus, they can be matt or gloss laminated so that they are protected, durable and easily wiped clean.

NCR order pads for Nelson's RestaurantNCR Order Pads

One of the key tools in virtually every eatery is the waiter or waitress’s order pad. We can supply multi-sheet, multi-part ‘NCR’ (no carbon required) pads so that everyone gets their own copy of every order. Perhaps the customer gets a white copy, the waiter gets a blue copy, the chef gets a pink copy and the accounts staff get a blue copy. With NCR sets, as we call them in the trade, several copies of each order are automatically made when the waiting staff writes out their notes with a pen. They come with a board back so they’re easier to write on and can be made into multiple sets and convenient pads.

Posters printed for 28-50 restaurantsPosters & Banners

Large format posters or banners displayed on walls or in the front window can also be a great way to announce your menu, special offer, seasonal dish or special of the day. They’re really a no-brainer and are also a great way to cross-sell to your captive audience of customers while they’re waiting or relaxing. We can supply posters at pretty much any size whether it’s A3, A2, A1, A0 or larger and hanging banners can be enormous if needed. They can also be waterproof and eyeleted for exterior use, if required — great for when you want to announce availability for a special date (e.g. booking up for Christmas, public holidays or special occasions).

Leaflets and flyers for Blackfriars Wine BarFlyers & Leaflets

Flyers and leaflets are another marketing item worth their weight in gold, for any walk-in business. Leaflets for customers inside your establishment can also help to cross-sell and communicate your products, events, specials and special offers in a timely way. What’s more, your audience is ready and waiting to read them during a relaxed moment while they await their food and drink. Perhaps give them an excuse to take your leaflet home with them, then keep it, for instance using a voucher code for their next visit or some kind of special deal that’s appealing. Flyers handed out in the streets nearby can also work beautifully to attract people to your establishment. Southside Print would be Read more

Digital & Litho Printing for London Heating & Plumbing Company

Printing & artwork for The Little Red Heating Company, London

We believe this is the first time we’ve featured a heating and plumbing company on the blog, so welcome to our post all about The Little Red Heating Company. Here we’ll tell you all about them, but first we’ll discuss a few of the design, artwork and printing jobs that we’ve been doing for them in recent times. If you have any similar needs, do get in touch.

Printed NCR pads, labels, postcards & business cards

All design, layout and artwork is supplied by Southside Print London Bridge for this particular client. We supply simple, straight forward ‘business’ type printing for them including:

  • A4 invoice pads, which are printed on NCR (No Carbon Required) stock with white, pink and blue copies automatically being produced when the client writes on the top sheet. They are litho printed in 3 spot colours as well as being sequentially crash numbered then typically made into 4 pads of 50 invoice sets. NCR sets are a very convenient way of generating multi-copy invoices or orders the ‘traditional’ way (with a pen), particularly while out and about visiting customers;
  • business cards which have, until recently, been litho printed onto 400gsm “Extra White” uncoated stock using 3 spot colours. However, our digital printing machines are now so advanced that we may well swap over to digital printing for the business cards for future print runs, without any loss of quality;
  • postcards, which are litho printed litho onto 250gsm Silk card, in the same 3 spot colours. As with the business cards above, we will probably also swap to digitally printing these in future, for the same reason;
  • boiler labels, which represent a convenient reminder to home owners as well as being a great marketing tool for the company concerned. These are digitally printed on “Crack Back” label stock. As the name suggests, this type of label stock has linear cracks in the peel-off backing. These are present too allow the labels to simply be bent a little to expand the crack, thereby making removal of the backing sheet quick and easy.

About The Little Red Heating Company

The Little Red Heating Company, LondonThe Little Red Heating Company is London based and specialises in central heating and hot water system installation, maintenance and repair. Boiler repair or replacement, bathroom design/installation and general plumbing are all part of the service along with upgrades and replacements for pumps, thermostats, timers and valves. The company also supplies landlord certification and, of course, heating engineers are all Corgi registered.

The Little Red Heating Company also offers under floor heating, which is quick and inexpensive to install and provides both a fast method of heating rooms and a real feeling of luxury underfoot. That’s not the only benefit though; those with under floor heating will also experience a significant reduction in dust mites, so this particular heating method is also excellent for asthma sufferers.

Another great service from the company is the supply and installation of solar heating, through the use of solar panels, for the provision of domestic hot water. With temperatures in the UK gradually rising as they are, solar energy is now an extremely viable way to generate a cheap, sustainable energy source for homes. So, long-term savings can be made as well as helping the environment — a true win-win!
