OCT / NOV 2020 NEWSLETTER

Autumn is here! But don to fear!

Christmas is on its way and the mad rush is already starting lol! Please give us as much time as poss to complete your order, especially if it includes machined shapes. To improve operations, we have 4 new starters to help in production and assist Nicci in the design department, (who we will introduce to you next time) but until everyone is up to speed, we will still need you to be patient waiting for your orders to be turned around! For our project this time, we are spotlighting our newest Christmas item- our A3 Tree advent calendar Рwith a really thorough guide, to showcase it and also help newer customers with hints and tips for using templates, printing, pressing and assembling!

Autumn is here!
Autumn is here and it’s all about back to school and Halloween before Christmas comes along! We have a couple of Halloween shapes, a ghost which comes in 2 sizes and NEW! – our redrawn¬†Pumpkin – which now comes in a range of sizes – both look fabulous as bunting… why not try alternating them and making ghost and pumpkin bunting which is better for the environment as it lasts year after year!
They both make great halloween party invites or adverts too – or printed up as free gifts for competitions. This year it looks like ‘trick or treating’ will be out, so decorating windows will be the thing – use metal for best effect & again to use year after year!
Back to school will be a shock to the system for many – why not help them get organised with our noticeboards or try our dry wipe signs printed up as family organisers to make sure everyone knows what they’re doing and most importantly when lol.

Customer ‘Share to win’ photos
Thank you to Diane Martin of Missy Prints, who is one of our lovely local customers, for these fab photos of our flying reindeer printed up on the mirror finishes! Don’t they look stunning? She also printed up one of our¬†dry wipe signs¬†as a fab organiser (pictured on her fridge!).
Thanks too, to Ciorstaidh Young of Dolina for a super sparkly Double sided chromaluxe bauble, printed up with Baby’s due date for a special Christmas decoration! Both receive a ¬£10 money off coupon for sharing!

FAQs
What is the “THANK YOU FOR YOUR ORDER CARD ” for?¬†
We are including these printed cards with your orders for a few reasons.
Firstly, to say thank you and show off how beautifully our metal prints. We will also be sending them in different random colours each time, for you to see how the various finishes effect the print.
Secondly, we wanted to remind you where to find the pressing instructions if you are new and how to let us know if you have an issue with your order ie. fill in the Shortage / damage / incorrect item form under the Product tab on the website and check out as if you were ordering, selecting local pickup.
Finally we thought they were a great reminder for you to think about adding extras in your orders to customers – wallet / business cards are an inexpensive but impressive way to communicate to your customers – add info, an advert or special offer!

One item three ways!
This time we’re looking at using a number of our items, in various sizes, for maximum impact. These work really well in children’s rooms and nurseries as they won’t curl up like posters. They are a relatively inexpensive way to create a real “wow” effect and help you and your business link-sell more items.

PLANETS AND STARS
Planets and stars are a great way to sell a number of items to one customer and as they’re fairly small items are not too expensive either – who wouldn’t want the whole solar system on their wall?
TERRIFIC TREES
We have a whole forest of trees so you can create a mixed size wall display or even use them to do a Christmas family tree display? They make a lovely gift for a new family or married couple.
SNOWFLAKES
Our snowflakes (in either modern or traditional) look great displayed in a range of sizes alongside each other. This can be on a wall or on Christmas tree or even used dotted about on the Christmas table as decorations or name places

As mentioned in our last newsletter, we have had some personnel¬†changes¬†recently, whos’¬†posts we have now been able to advertise¬†and interview¬†for. Bev has now moved onto pastures new (to work in a school – perfect as she has a young baby!) and we wish her all the best for her new career. So we have some new starters who, as we’ve said, we¬†will introduce to you next time but some sad news for¬†now, last month¬†we lost lovely Clover our 5 year old workshop Spaniel to cancer ūüôĀ
