Helping business (and plants) to grow!

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:
