Tony produces superb printing to a time he promises and at a price offering excellent value.

Thanks Tony - your work is excellent and your service is designed to please."

21st Century Print have supplied our printed materials for the last five years.

They have always provided efficient, friendly service – but more than that, on several occasions have gone out of their way to ensure we receive the items we need at very short notice. Tony and Carol go above and beyond for their customers."

We act for a large portfolio of clients in dealing with their company secretarial and corporate legal compliance requirements which requires us to send circulars to shareholders, notices, accounts etc on their behalf.

We have used the services of 21st Century Print Limited for several years to deal with the printing and despatch of documents and throughout that time we have found them to be consistently efficient, reliable, and accurate even when completing tasks given at very short notice.

Time to start thinking about the C word

Christmas, that is.

Businesses benefit from the festive season. It’s a remarkable opportunity to keep in touch, make sales, say thank you and celebrate the year’s achievements. And it only happens once a year.

Do you have a plan? Have you thought about it? If not, now’s the time!

Whether you’re someone who starts counting sleeps in January and wondering how long it is until you can watch Elf and the Muppets Christmas Carol guilt-free, or whether you’re, like me, in denial for as long as possible, avoiding Christmas music and adverts, and refusing to shop or put a tree up until Christmas Eve.

Either way, professionally-speaking, it is a case of ‘who snoozes loses’. Don’t worry, we have your back. Here are some of our snazziest ideas for wowing your customers, partners and colleagues this Christmas.

enter image description here

Bring your personality

Off the shelf Christmas cards miss out on the chance to promote your business and brand, so always go bespoke and make it personal. Whether it’s humourous, elegant, creative, friendly, approachable, quirky or playful, don’t forget to use your brand’s colours or logo where possible, and link the imagery to your product or service.

enter image description here

Stand out from the crowd

Christmas is a rich opportunity, so everyone’s on the same band wagon. There is lots of noise. Make sure your message gets noticed.

enter image description here

Make time to prepare

It’s a sneaky time of year, one that always seems to arrive faster than expected. Don’t let it be an after-thought, make time to get your cards and gifts sooner rather than later.

enter image description here

Get the whole team involved

Dress up, have fun and make a comic Christmas card. Here are two very silly ideas:

• Great for a noisy sales team: A card with ‘Silent Night’ written at the bottom with a picture of the team wearing Christmas hats, tangled up together with fairy lights and a strip of red gaffa tape over each of their mouths.

• Dress up as funny snowmen and women by wrapping team members in loo roll, like mummies, and then finishing off the effect with a scarf, buttons and woolly hat.

enter image description here

Demonstrate your social conscience

Ask Ebeneezer Scrooge, he learnt the hard way, Christmas is a time for being charitable and sharing. Show your caring side by choosing a card where a tree is planted or a donation is made to charity.

enter image description here

Express genuine gratitude

One straightforward way to stand out is to make your message meaningful. Say something real and heartfelt and people will listen. If it’s been an honour and a pleasure to work together, why not say so?

enter image description here

Think outside the rectangle

Drop the right angles and design a cut-out card. It could be in the shape of a Christmas tree or a threaded snowflake, wreath or diamond to dangle on a tree.

There’s no time like the present. 21st Century Print provides design, print and distribution, so take inspiration and get started right away.

Sending shop-bought cards is always an option but, if you ask us, it’s a wasted opportunity. You’re about to contact all of the people who make it possible for you to be in business, it’s worth making it count.

For your bespoke corporate Christmas cards, contact us or call us on 0845 3893860 today.

How to feel the sunshine when you’re stuck at your desk

Forget Christmas, in fact summer is the most magical time of the year. We’re brighter, more energetic, there are holidays to enjoy, and barbecues, the kids are gleeful and wild, nights are light and the sea is warm. It’s bliss!

That is, unless you’re stuck in the office, sweating and gazing longingly out of the window glooming over what fun other people are having.

So, let’s be proactive. How can we bring the summer feeling into our offices and our work?

1. Bring the outside inside:

A couple of well-placed houseplants, a succulent or terrarium on your desk can bring about tranquility, cleaner air and a connection to the outdoors.

2. Treat yourself to some summer tunes:

Whether you like Bob Marley or the Beach Boys, Jazzy Jeff or Beyonce, an hour nodding along to your favourite summer songs is certain to lift your spirits. Drowning out office chatter can sometimes help focus and productivity too.

3. Have an ice cream:

Nothing says summer like an ice cream. Stroll around the nearest park with a cone and let your taste buds foster holiday vibes.

4. Make the most of summer nights:

Even if you get in at six or seven in the evening, there are still several hours of warmth and daylight ahead. Save flopping out in front of the TV for wintertime and lounge in the garden or head out for a walk.

5. Brighten up your workspace:

A little bit of colour goes a long way; think deck chair primaries or beach hut pastel shades. You could hang a poster by your desk or even install a desktop aquarium.

6. Go outside each and every day:

Don’t let a day go past without spending twenty minutes outdoors. It will help with your mood and vitamin D levels too. Feeling brighter is bound to improve work.

7. Put ice lollies in the office freezer:

Ok, it might sound childish but if you’re feeling frustrated, overly hot and wishing to be elsewhere, a little ice lolly break might be just the refresher you need. For those who are creative or want something healthier, make your own with frozen smoothies.

8. Break out of routine:

They say a change is as good as a rest. Well, maybe you could cycle or walk to work while it’s sunny or, if driving’s your only choice, take the scenic route in to the office?

9. Instigate something sporty:

Head over to the nearest park or recreation grounds for a game of Frisbee, giant Jenga, croquet or an inter-departmental rounders match.

10. Take advantage of 21st Century Print’s Summer Special Offer

Yes! Take me straight over to see what I can get.

Ok, it’s not going to change the fact that you’re in the office but it is sure to save you a few pennies and get a job seriously well done. And, that feels good! Summer also feels good, so that must mean summer and our Summer Special Offer are basically the same thing!

There’s plenty of summer ahead. We hope you most thoroughly enjoy it!

How we developed the ultimate launch branding solution

- Posted in Business Packages by

the ultimate launch branding solution

When it comes to a launch, whether it is a new business, a rebrand or an addition to your range, there is an extraordinary, tingly kind of excitement. You’ve had the insight, made a plan, crunched the numbers and secured investment, and now you have both the conviction and the means to make it happen. This moment might have been years in the making. You’re completely ready to jump in. The time is now!

For most entrepreneurs and business people, there is a kind of frustrated impatience that accompanies a launch. Once everything is good to go, well, that’s it, you want to get going. It often takes too much time to get launch materials in place. That is time when you would prefer to be out in the world, trading and starting to recoup the outlay.

This is where 21st Century Print’s menu of Brand Packages comes into play. You can have a full portfolio of stationery and marketing materials ready in next to no time at all. Place your order on Monday, sign off the artwork on Thursday and be gliding into an exhibition branded and looking professional the very next Friday. That’s right, with no hold-ups, it is less than two weeks for the entire process.

With options including logo design, business cards, a roller banner, promotional leaflets, postcards, pens, letterheads and compliment slips, you could have everything you need to introduce your brand, attend exhibitions and present a professional identity to the world straightaway.

Rolling everything into a package makes for an unbelievably cost-effective and efficient solution. Instead of liaising with creatives and printers over each item independently, negotiating endless quotes and revisions, there is one straightforward point of contact. And one defined, clear, upfront cost that will get the whole job done.

It ensures complete consistency with a uniformed and cohesive brand identity, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that belong together. Consistency is such a key ingredient in achieving professional presentation too. It helps to build relationships and trust, showing that you know what you are doing, care and will do a great job. It’s that all-important first impression.

Printed materials are so much more personal and tactile, more real if you like. Many of you will be able to relate to the buzz of seeing your logo in print for the very first time, or your idea spelled out across a flyer. Somehow, it’s often the moment when it all becomes real, the “Wow, we are really doing it!” moment.

There are four options; Basics, Basics Plus, Launch Pad and Expo. The first two are primarily geared for start-ups and the second ones are better suited to rebrands or product launches within existing businesses, trade shows and exhibitions.

However, we are realists. We’ve taken into to account the uniqueness of each and every business and certainly aren’t expecting everyone to conform to a package. So, if you’d like a little something added in or taken out, ask away. The focus is on giving you exactly the right toolkit that you need to achieve your aims. You have the flexibility to swap and exchange elements, and the price will be amended accordingly and agreed with you in advance.

Finally, don’t worry, if you are already established, launched and trading, there is plenty on offer at 21st Century Print for you too. We have recently published a Catalogue Design and Print Guide packed full of pragmatic advice to read before embarking on a catalogue production project. It covers topics such as image quality, the technicalities of print colour, size, paper quality and layout. Maybe this sounds a little dry, but each needs careful consideration before beginning to collate content. The guide is available for free on our website, just click on the banner here.
