Southside Print & Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Southside Print Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update & Poster

To confirm, we are ‘open for business here’ at Southside Print in London SE1, despite Coronavirus/COVID-19. We are fully operative for all services including graphic design, printing and production. Just let us know if you need any print and design produced and we’ll be very happy to help.

“We are operating an uninterrupted service”

It goes without saying, though, that we are taking extra precautions to help fight the spread of the virus. For example:

  • Staff have altered shifts so as to avoid travelling on public transport;
  • We’re avoiding all travel to other countries;
  • We’re avoiding physical contact, for example hand-shaking, and maintaining a sensible distance between ourselves and others;
  • We’re regularly washing hands – thoroughly with soap – as well as using anti-bac hand sanitiser;
  • We’re regularly hygienically cleaning our premises, in particular any well-used areas like door handles, keyboards, desks, etc;
  • We’ve published and displayed a Coronavirus & COVID-19 ‘best practice’ poster in the shop and at strategic points around the production areas. Copies are available for sale to anyone interested (follow the bold link above).
  • Any staff who are not directly involved in production are working from home, for example our back-office work, quotations, business administration using cloud-based systems and so on;
  • We hold meetings via phone contact, video calls, Skyping, iMessaging and conference calls;
  • We’re asking customers and prospects to liaise with us remotely.
  • We are sharing work between our two print and production sites in London, so are adaptable should one geographical location become more adversely affected than the other;
  • And, of course, we’re continuously monitoring the situation and are following Government guidelines.

So, the message is that we are operating an uninterrupted service. Rest assured that quality and service levels remain excellent, as always.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) posters available to buy online

Coronavirus poster to buy onlineIn an effort to play our part in the fight against Coronavirus and COVID-19, we’ve originated some posters that individuals, companies and organisations can buy online. Outlining useful advice and best practice, they’re perfect for displaying on office walls, in receptions, in windows, on notice boards, in entrances to buildings and so on. That’s a great way to help keep staff, customers and visitors safe and should be a real help as part of Health & Safety (HS) in the workplace.

The posters include very important information and guidelines including:

  • Likely symptoms of Coronavirus/COVID-19;
  • Countries at high risk (particularly useful for regular or recent travellers);
  • Advice for those who have symptoms or those who have recently travelled from ‘at risk’ countries;
  • Guidelines outlining how to limit the spread of the virus;
  • Illustrated instructions demonstrating best practice for both hand washing and hand sanitising.

The posters are available to buy online. They are A3 in size and are gloss laminated, allowing the surface to be wiped clean. They cost £15 excluding VAT and postage. Most credit and debit cards are accepted, as well as PayPal.

The latest information and advice on Coronavirus & COVID-19 is available at the NHS website.

Digital Printing for Tic Toc Nursery School

Digital printing for Tic Toc NurseryThis month, we feature Tic Toc Nursery School, a business that is located in Twickenham, Middlesex, so is a little further away than businesses and organisations usually featured on the blog. We welcome such work, though, as we can dispatch printing by overnight courier to virtually any part of the UK.

Digital printing of leaflets

Tic Toc Nursery School came to us recently, through a recommendation. We have been busy printing a set of 3000 leaflets for them and these are A5 in size, double-sided, and digitally printed in full colour onto 170gsm silk stock. Such a finish and the paper weight itself give the leaflets a feel of quality as they’re reasonably thick with a much nicer look and feel compared to the thinner, cheaper materials available elsewhere on the printing market. The medium quantity and small sheet size of this job were a perfect fit for our digital printer which, through using its plateless process, also allows for a faster turnaround than would have been achieved using our litho printing presses.

Already, improvements are being seen including the renovation of the garden, which now has new gravel, a sand pit and a mud kitchen for the toddlers to explore. They can also enjoy the vegetable patch and an outdoor play area is under development for babies. New arrivals to the garden also come in the form of chickens and rabbits, which now call Tic Toc Nursery School their home!

As well as being a fun place for toddlers to be, Tic Toc aims to Read more
