Welcome back – a belated HAPPY NEW YEAR! We had an AMAZING 2019 – THANKS to you all!
As normal we have loads of new products, ideas and services to share with you over the next year and can’t wait for you to see all the things we have been working on.
Forthcoming launches include our new A1 / A2 trade only printing and pressing service and a re-design of our website to make it more user-friendly.
We now also have bigger sheets of 0.5mm Mirror Silver, Mirror Gold and Brushed Gold to match our White, Brushed Silver and White 0.7mm sheets – meaning that we can now cut anything up to 1230 x 600 in these colours.
Alos, a heads up – due to rising supplier costs – we have unfortunately had to increase prices on some of our cufflink and tie slide ranges.

Do you produce a catalogue?
The short answer is no. Basically we have so many products – more than 4000 – and a constantly evolving product line, which would make any printed catalogue obsolete as soon as it came out. It just wouldn’t be cost effective for us to produce a paper catalogue. So instead we make sure our website is regularly updated and includes all our latest products, prices and options. Where possible items feature a selection of finishes and colours and where applicable a range of fixing options. We also regularly update our photos to show the items blank and printed. Our website is currently being redesigned and we’re hoping to launch our new more user-friendly (and fabulously pretty!) version in February. Alongside our website we also produce this newsletter every month which showcases our new products and gives ideas for using and selling existing products. This goes out with every order and is also on our homepage and emailed out to all existing customers.
One Item – Three Ways!
This month we’re sticking with the jewellery theme and showing how you can make our Pandora style beads suitable for three different recipients. Our beads are really versatile and can work on ribbon necklaces, Pandora style silver plated bracelets or our faux leather plain or braided necklaces. We’ve also seen them put attached to ribbon and added to wedding bouquets!
We now do five different Pandora style beads and one Sterling Silver version, each supplied with printable inserts. We also do Nomination style charms.
Our new diamanté Pandora style heart bead looks lovely and sparkly, threaded onto one of or pretty ribbon necklaces which come in mixed bright colour packs.
For women, how about threading the personalised bead onto one of our silver plated Pandora style bracelets? This comes in two lengths and looks so classy.
We now do a range of faux leather necklaces which are great for men especially with the new oval, and live love laugh rectangle bead. We do these necklaces in plain or braided, in packs of bright or neutral colours and the braided version also comes in a bracelet size in black.
Thanks again for such a great 2019, and especially the Christmas run in! LET’S HOPE THAT 2020 IS AS FANTASTIC FOR ALL OF US!
Nicci, Carl, Bev, Claire, Sam, Aimee, Charlotte, Clover and Petal – the Subli Metals team!
