Opening Times for Christmas 2019 & New Year

Christmas & New Year opening times

A very Happy Christmas to all our customers! We’d also like to pass on every good wish to you for the New Year when it arrives. Thanks to each and every one of you for all the lovely graphic design and printing work that you’ve given us throughout 2019 — it’s been a wonderful year and we really appreciate all the work you have passed our way — Thank you.

Christmas 2019 & New Year Opening Times

We close for the Christmas festivities on Friday 20th December at 5.30pm, remaining closed throughout the Christmas period until January 2nd 2020 when we re-open at 9am — and then it’s all back to normal. In the mean time, if you have anything urgent that simply must be ready in time for Christmas, don’t delay. We’ll need your artwork and order right away please.

However, our online print shop will be available to everyone during the break. So, if you need anything like brochures, posters, letterheads, compliments slips, business cards or leaflets, simply order them online (follow the bold links) and we’ll print and dispatch those for you as soon as possible.

You can also continue to request quotations over the Christmas break and, again, we’ll sort those out for you as quickly as we can so you have prices ready for the New Year. You can also call 020 7378 6754 to speak with us either side of the break.

Thanks again to each and every one of you. We wish you a happy Christmas and all good things for the 2020.

Personal Stationery Printers in Southwark

Personal Stationery

As well as being designers and printers of business stationery, Southside Print also produces personal stationery. This can be anything from a simple, typographic letterhead to a full colour, highly designed suite of stationery including overprinted letterheads, compliments slips, business cards and even envelopes. Each might include a personal logo, calligraphic motif or indeed even a family coat of arms. Personal stationery is not for everyone but it is perfect for the image-conscious and those who want to give people a convenient reminder of their name and contact details.

Personal Business Cards

Personal business cards are a great tool for creating a good first impression. Let’s say you’re at a posh function and want to do a bit of networking. Without a personal business card, you may initially impress but you may also be forgotten again within minutes without some kind of reminder. Hand out a beautifully designed personal business card and it’s sure to remind your prospect or future employer of you once again. After all, it’s something they can keep long term. Personal business cards are great at interviews, networking events, functions, trade shows or when you’re selling your services in some way on a one-to-one basis. Of course, in their simplest form, they are also a convenient way of reminding friends and family of your contact details and home address.

Personal Letterheads

Personal letterheads are a great tool for those wishing to create the best impression when communicating via the written word. Whether you’re sending off your CV, working as a sole trader or liaising personally at a high level, bespoke letterheads allow you to look great even though you’re not right there in person. You will stand out from the crowd as someone with style and as someone who goes the extra mile.

Personal Compliments Slips & Envelopes

You can take this a step or two further by including personal compliments slips and overprinted envelopes in your suite of personal stationery. So, the moment your envelope arrives with your intended recipient, they will know it contains a communication from you. And compliments slips are useful when you want to perhaps send something to someone and have no time to scribble a note. With the compliments slip accompanying the item you supplied, it all speaks for itself with minimal effort and fuss.

Personal stationery will tell people that you are a quality individual and be a lasting reminder of something very special … you!

Image, Information & a Useful Reminder

Put simply, personal stationery will tell people that you are a quality individual. Your personal stationery will impress, let the recipient know your contact details and be a lasting reminder of something very special; you. 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.

Brochure printing for SE1 charity BOSTPrinting Examples

Just a few examples of work undertaken for BOST since our original post include:

  • 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
  • 70 A5 Christmas cards with envelopes
  • A variety of different flyers and leaflets
  • And much more!

Our thanks go out to them for all the lovely printing work and for being such loyal and regular clients — we really appreciate it.

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.

Southwark Dynamos Score with Southside Print!

Southside Print sponsors Southwark Dynamos Football Club

A new football club, the Southwark Dynamos, recently reached out to Southside Print for a possible sponsorship deal. We were more than happy to help and are now proud to announce that Southside Print is the club’s official sponsor for the next two football seasons. Our contribution will help the new club with expenses for training equipment and football kit and our logo will feature on both home and away kits.

A notice on the club’s website made the announcement:

We are delighted to welcome Southside Print as our Official club sponsor for 2018/ 2019 Football season. Thank you believing in our vision from everyone at the club.

Caroline Nicholson, the Club Secretary of Southwark Dynamos Football Club, also said:

Everyone at Southwark Dynamos Football Club is extremely delighted and welcomes Southside Print as our Official Sponsor.

Southside Print’s Rob Phillips confirmed:

We are delighted to take up the opportunity to become your title sponsor …. it’s great to be involved”.

An early rough of how the new football kit may lookThe Southwark Dynamos

Southwark Dynamos is an exciting new football club based in Rotherhithe, Southwark, and has the London FA as their governing body. Currently, the club is preparing for the new football season in the South East London & Kent League. As the club says on its website, their aim is ‘to develop and train talented young footballers for tomorrow‘. They help young people take their skills to the next level, preparing them for top-level competitions which will see them playing in front of football professionals. Possible opportunities arising from that include scholarships and even semi-professional or professional football contracts.

The club is family run within the Southwark community and encourages young people – both male and female – to develop their football skills as well as to simply enjoy the sport. Training sessions help to build on skills, strength, agility and stamina as well as facilitating the fabulous opportunities mentioned above. Programs are also run with local schools and youth clubs and include summer football camps.

Staff are fully trained and vetted, with all the requisite safeguarding policies in place at the club. Indeed, all training certification is approved by the FA and other local football associations affiliated with the club.

The Southwark Dynamos train just two-and-a-half miles away from Southside Print at Bacons College Sports Ground in Timber Pond Road, London SE16 6AT (nearest railway station: Rotherhithe). Pre-training and development currently takes place every Saturday between 12 noon and 2pm and the next session is on Saturday 9 June at time of writing.

If you are under sixteen and an avid football player, the club is currently looking for additional players to strengthen its U16s squad ahead of the 2018/2019 football season. So, do get in touch with them if this if of interest. You can call them on 07760 955 978, email them or simply go to one of their Saturday training sessions.
