Wow! You have all been keeping us very busy lol We took last years November Sales total in the first 10 days of November this year! And it didn’t slow down throughout November into black Friday week – our orders broke records week after week – with our final total three times that of last year!!! (which was by far our best month of 2019 lol)
So we are finally on the last run in to Christmas – hurrah! I’m sure we can all do with a break? I’m sleeping for 2 weeks lol
Christmas Shutdown Dates
We are shut from December 23rd (Last orders are Tuesday December 22nd at 12 noon) and we will re open Monday January 4th 2021. Remember to order as early as possible – as we are always hectic, right through December and also the week we return – so please be patient that week, as we catch up!!
December Free Gift
This month we are sending you a special printed gift to show off our fabulous metal in a new shape that is very appropriate for this time of year and also for 2020! The word Key has been a big feature this year, as keyworkers have been so important in our lives through 2020 – so we thought how about a key shape to personalise to thank them!
This time of year keys are also in demand – for Santa! So we have added a modern key and a vintage key to our range so we have a design for every occasion! So to showcase these in everyone’s order this month we have included a keepsake Subli Metals Modern – stubby key as either a free standard ‘key’ keyring, or (as shown) as a jumbo key shaped business card !

Seasonal / Marketing Ideas
We have such a huge range of Christmas / celebration items you can really theme any get together or party (er maybe not this year … more select family get together – hopefully!) and create intimate personalised items or generic celebratory pieces that can be used for many events. Shown are items for the Christmas table, Christmas tree and room decorations and Santa’s delivery accessories!
We have added to our huge range of baubles and Christmas shapes this year with a new traditional angel and 2 types of keys – modern and vintage, in sizes that make perfect Santa keys. The angel is available with cut outs along with our stars to use as Tealight wraps and the larger ones as Tree toppers! Don’t forget you can also print up our baby on boards, rail signs, arrows or door plaques as Santa STOP signs and our business / wallet cards make perfect Santa driving licenses to leave behind on Christmas eve!

One item three ways!
This time we’re looking at using one item in different themes – a great way to market one shape in different ways, making your stock as flexible as possible… our new splats and splodges are available in various sizes – use them as plaques and decs as below, but smaller they can be fun jewelry and badges, larger for statement wall art!
- SPLAT! Monster door plaque The splat printed in a green slime design makes a perfect monster – add googly eyes on stalks or in the middle for an added fun effect!
- PAINT SPLAT! CRAFT / ART ROOM PLAQUE …Or printed in bright paint colours it makes the perfect or art or craft room door plaque .. personalise any of these for special gift…
- COVID GERM SPLAT 2020 TREE DEC! …and finally add a bacteria background to create the perfect unique 2020 Christmas tree decoration!
So that’s almost a wrap for 2020 – a year that has been extremely challenging for all but we have to be very proud of how our team has coped with the extra stress and worked so hard to keep you all supplied throughout the year.
As we mentioned last time we have had new starters since September – welcome Pippa in the design department, Caroline as machine room assistant and Carolyn and Tina in production. Taking our little companies’ workforce to 12! So we will all be beavering away, working extra hours and extra hard to get all your orders out through December for you- see you in 2021 (let’s pray for some return to normality!!)
Happy Christmas and Keep safe,
Nicci, Carl, Claire, Sam, Aimee, Emily, Rachel, Louise, Pippa, Caroline, Tina, Carolyn and Petal the Doberman – the Subli Metals team!
