If you are one of our hundreds of clients who only think of us for business stationery printing, then think again!
Take this little order as a perfect example. Glyndebourne is recognised globally as one of the great opera houses. Its productions travel worldwide, are performed live in other opera houses and screened in cinemas from New York to Tokyo. Yet it remains a very English institution. The opera house stands next to the country home of John Christie, who founded it in 1934. Now run by his grandson Gus, it is still very much a family concern.
The Old House has beautiful gardens and last year we printed some lovely packs of note cards depicting beautiful painted images of flowers and plants in the garden. This year we were tasked to print a set of seed cards that would be sold in the gift shop to keen green fingered visitors. Seeds were collected from 4 unusual plants grown in the garden and packed into small paper envelopes, these we in turn packed in cellophane bags containing a card, envelope and the seeds. Each pack was priced and bar coded ready for sale in the on-site gift shop.
You see, Blueprint do more than just standard business printing!
The Glyndebourne Festival presents six productions each year in a 1,200-seat opera house built in 1994. Glyndebourne on Tour, founded in 1968, takes three productions around the UK each autumn. Together, Festival and Tour present about 120 performances a year to an audience of around 150,000. For more information on Glyndebourne, please visit their website at: www.glyndebourne.com
- It starts life as huge flat printed sheets
- Then gets trimmed down to approximately the correct size of a double page spread
- Then gets gathered together in the collating machine
- Which feeds it into the stitcher unit (stapling machine to you and me!)
- Which feeds it into the fold & trim unit which folds it into a finished magazine shape and trims off all the edges to give you the perfect finished magazine.
See, it’s simple when you know how and have a huge machine called a stitch, fold & trim line!
This famous slogan was created by Clarissa Baldwin, Chief Executive of The Dogs trust, in 1978 but is still as relevant today.
This little order contains 8 beautiful images taken by a local photographer of her littler of Golden Lab puppies, how could anyone resist buying one for charity?
We created the artwork and printed them onto a super silky 350 gram card to create a nice quality Christmas Card.
An exciting new opportunity has recently arrived for students from Tomlinscote School to influence the future of the school, through the Young Chamber Of Commerce.
The idea behind the Young Chamber is to encourage young entrepreneurship by linking education with the local business community. It is a junior version of the Chamber of Commerce, a membership organisation that represents businesses within the national community.
Tomlinscote is currently the first and only Young Chamber in the whole of Surrey, which presents a thrilling chance for publicity for the events it is planning. Carol Jury, Projects Manager at the Surrey Chamber of Commerce, is helping the students to set up the new Chamber by putting them in contact with her business network.
I met 2 of the students at a networking event and am very pleased to be working with such a forward think operation, a great development idea to get the youngsters thinking like business owners.
We are working together to produce a cook book, the proofs are on the presses today!
