Some exciting news to share with you…

As a welcome gift from Rob the new owner of Southside Print SE1, you can save 10% off the price of business stationery for the next two weeks until 17th April 2018.

It’s Alan here from Southside Print, with a rather special announcement. What’s more, it’s exciting on several levels as it’s a win-win (… win) for you, me and a lovely couple, who I’ll tell you more about in a minute.

So, what’s happening?

Well, after 35 years in the printing industry, I’ve decided to hang up my printing apron, grab my slippers, put the kettle on and spend more time at home with my lovely wife. You’ve guessed it … I’m retiring!

It’s been amazing working with lovely clients like you over the last 35 years and I wanted to say a massive thank you to each and every one of you before I went off into the sunset. So, “thank you” — you’ve done us all proud over the years and I wish you all well for the future.

Which brings me back to that lovely couple …

I’d like to introduce you to Robert Phillips (‘Rob’) and Sarah Codd. As well as being recently married and rather lovely, they are now also the proud new owners of Southside Print. They’re print veterans too, having worked in the industry for almost 31 years. So, they really know their stuff! Rob and Sarah will be taking over from 30 March 2018 and will join the existing team of Matt, Aidan, Paul, Eve and Linda, so you’ll still see the same familiar faces as well as the two new arrivals.

Sarah Codd and Rob Phillips, new owners of Southside Print, SE1.

Multiple benefits for you …

I mentioned at the start that this would also be a ‘win’ for you, as a customer. In fact it’s a multiple win! First, Rob and Sarah will be bringing with them some snazzy new equipment, so you’ll be able to get even more out of Southside Print. Just one example is a new digital press that can print on sheets up to 1.2 metres in length and will allow us to make a 16 page A5 booklet out of just one sheet. That’s going to be great for speed and economy!

Secondly, you’ll soon see the benefits of a new, significant investment into software that’ll allow you to track your work during production — and much, much more. You should see this introduced around Autumn 2018 and we’ll give you more detail nearer the time.

Last but not least, save 10% on stationery printing

Save 10% off all business stationery until 17th April 2018.As a welcome gift from Rob, you can save 10% off the price of business stationery for the next two weeks. That includes business cards (minimum quantity just 100), letterheads, continuation sheets and compliments slips etc. Simply mention “ROB’S WELCOME OFFER” at the time of your order and you’ll receive the saving (valid until 17th April).

So it’s farewell from me …

My last day at Southside Print was the 29th of March so, from the 30th, I left you in the very capable hands of Rob and Sarah. That just leaves me to wish you a very happy, healthy and successful future and to say a huge ‘thank you’ once again for keeping me so busy for all of these years.

My very best regards to you,

Alan Garelick

Catalogues & Flyers for Artist Lorraine Fossi

Catalogue & Flyer printing for Lorraine Fossi, artist.Lorraine Fossi, an artist who lives and works in South London, recently commissioned Southside Print London Bridge to print a 52-page catalogue of her 2015/16 work. This was digitally printed and is A5 landscape in size, being full colour and produced using Southside Print‘s digital printing presses. The catalogue uses 250gsm silk coated stock for the covers and 170gsm paper weight for internal pages. It was designed by Deborah Puiggali and Southside Print‘s Matt Potter helped to edit a few photos, check the consistency of the fonts and set up the final print-ready file before the catalogue was sent to print. Southside Print also printed a full colour Private View flyer, also on silk coated stock, to publicise Lorraine’s ‘Art Salon’ events (more about those below).

About Lorraine Fossi

Lorraine was originally an architect, having been born into a family of artists and architects in Paris. After studying architecture at The Beaux-Arts she went on to graduate with an MA (with distinction) in Fine Arts, in September 2015, from the City & Guilds of London Art School. There, she also won the City & Guilds School Art Prize. Read more

Printing for The Art Academy, Borough, London SE1

Digital printing for The Art Academy

Spring Courses PosterThe Art Academy is one of our close neighbours here in the London Bridge/Borough region of London. They sometimes need posters, brochures and flyers printed and, as we’re in the same SE1 area, we are a natural choice for printing of such items. A couple of examples of marketing collateral produced for them can be seen above and details of both the printing and the Academy follow below.

Open Days PosterWe produced the Spring Courses poster (shown right) using The Art Academy’s own design and artwork supplied and printed it as ten A3 posters and fifty A5 flyers. Both were printed in full colour, single-sided, using our digital printing press. This was perfect for the relatively low volumes required and allowed for a speedy turnaround. The stock used was 170gsm ‘Essential Silk’ which started life at a size of SRA2.

We also produced a similar poster, in the same manner, for their Fine Art Foundation open days. This can be seen on the left and utilised exactly the same ‘Essential Silk’ paper as the first example.

Lastly, we also supplied some full colour, 200gsm brochures (not shown), each incorporating a front flap. Due to the low volume and fast turnaround needed those were produced via colour copy/duplication and finished to a folded size of A5.

Special Offer to students of The Art AcademySpecial Printing Offer for Art Academy Students
