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

  • 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

Poster Printing in London

Full colour printed poster for WhatICanDo campaign

 

High quality poster printing is one of the most popular printing services here at Southside Print in London SE1. We use an 8-colour inkjet poster printing process for the majority of poster prints. This accomplishes great detail (up to 2400dpi), offers exceptionally high quality with accurate, saturated colours and a very wide tonal range. The overall impression is impressive and highly professional. Moreover, we can often turn around posters around rapidly, for example on a same day or next day basis. All in all, it’s the perfect solution when you need to grab attention for your product, service, presentation or event — and all at large scale and in double-quick time.

Poster Uses

Posters suit a variety of different marketing and promotional purposes for a range of different businesses and organisations. For example:

  • Promotional posters are a great way to promote any product, service or event;
  • CAD drawings can also be output, in exactly the same way, for use by architects, engineers and designers of any kind;
  • Posters can be used as display graphics, for example during trade shows and in store;
  • They also lend themselves to window and wall displays;
  • They’re perfect for marketing gigs, concerts, theatre productions and special events.
  • We’ve even produced limited edition prints that later become collectors’ items or are sold as promotional merchandise for bands, movies and suchlike.

Print Sizes & Prices

We can print posters in any size up to a maximum of A0. Here’s a little bit more detail:

  • A4 posters are 297mm x 210mm
  • A3 posters are 420mm x 297mm
  • A2 posters are 594mm x 420mm
  • A1 posters are 841mm x 594mm
  • A0 posters are 1189mm x 841mm
  • Your poster doesn’t have to be an exact ‘A’ size though — we can print to any size and proportion so long as it’s no larger than A0.

To get an instant idea of pricing, visit our online poster print shop here or simply contact us for non-standard sizes and we’ll be happy to provide quotations without obligation or pressure.

Finishes

Our standard poster prints use 200gsm ‘Xerox Photo Satin’ paper. As the name suggests, these have a lovely satin finish, which is a great balance between matt and gloss, with a lovely feel too. The 200gsm weight is also a substantial weight. It’s still classified as paper but is not far off the thickness of thin card, so is robust and oozes quality.

Our poster prints can also be laminated, in either matt or gloss lamination, to any size including A0. We also offer encapsulation, in a gloss finish, up to A1 maximum for those who like the ‘sealed edge’ approach and the extra robustness that encapsulation offers over standard lamination.

Mounting Options

Our posters can be supplied simply as 200gsm paper print-outs or we can mount them to a variety of substrates if preferred. Mounting options include: Read more

The Benefits of Printed Newsletters

The Benefits of a Printed Newsletter

Newsletters are simple and inexpensive to print yet can convey an enormous amount of important information to recipients. This makes them ideal for both ‘internal’ marketing (to keep staff and stakeholders up to date) and external marketing of your products or services to clients and prospects. As such, they constitute a very useful and versatile component of any sales and marketing strategy.

Benefits of Physical Newsletters vs. Electronic

Another key benefit of physical, printed newsletters is that they are easy to pick up and put down at any time. This allows readers to dip in and dip out of articles whenever they like. Compare that to e-newsletters, which tend to be forgotten the moment they’ve been buried in your in box by more recent emails. The traditional newsletter beats electronic versions hands down in this respect.

Printed newsletters are also far more versatile from the distribution perspective. While e-newsletters arrive only at your handheld device or desktop computer, physical newsletters can find themselves in front of their target audience in a much wider variety of ways. They can be handed out, mailed through the post, left on coffee tables, offered to visitors via company foyers, reception desks and waiting rooms, handed out with other sales and marketing literature like brochures and price lists, used as inserts in other publications and distributions — and so on. Physical newsletters also require no Wi-Fi or data signal to work, so can be perused pretty much anywhere, any time. Try doing all that with an electronic e-newsletter — it’s simply not possible!

Add-ons

Physical, printed newsletters also lend themselves to additional add-ons. These include things like tear-off order forms that people might find useful if they want to order your products or services and those can even come with pressure-sensitive glue and postage pre-applied. All that needs to be done after filling in the form is for the page to be folded so it sticks together in a kind of pre-built envelope, ready to post. Other add-ons include coupons for special offers or voucher codes that the customer can use in-store or via a website. Another great thing to build into a printed newsletter is an element that the recipient might find useful to keep, for example an integral poster, calendar of events or table of key dates for the year ahead. That’ll be a useful reminder of your brand, product or service, all year round.

Printed newsletter sizes and formatsNewsletter Sizes & Formats

The most cost-effective sizing recommended for newsletter printing is to use one of the ‘A’ sizes. For example, A4 is the most common one used in the UK commercial world. However, A5 and A3 are also feasible while still making the very most out of standard sheet sizes available to printers like us. It goes without saying, though, that there are many other options including square newsletters, triple-page ‘roll fold’ newsletters and so on.

We can, of course, also fold newsletters in half so they’re easier and cheaper to post out, particularly if they don’t contain too many pages and are on paper that’s thin enough to fold when there are multiple pages. It’s a fine balance, though; as one wouldn’t want to make the pages too thin, otherwise you’d start to see what we call ‘show through’ i.e. the ghost of the reverse side of the printed page slightly showing through to the front face that’s being read. There are a great variety of paper thicknesses, weights and finishes to choose from, though, so just ask us about the options.

Paper Finish

At Southside Print we offer a very wide range of different paper stocks for your printed newsletters. We have 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

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
