Yes, it’s almost that time of year again, and time to start thinking about the all important Christmas card list. But this year, rather than sending out the same old cards that everyone gives – the robin, the snowman, the nativity scene, the humorous picture of a drunken Santa falling off the roof – why not do something a little special and design your own? By using our digital printing and finishing services, you can create your own unique design to send to your nearest and dearest, and have it professionally produced in whatever quantity you require. Aside from the fact that this can look really cool, it’s also a much better way of showing people how much you care than a set of generic cards you picked up for a quid from the supermarket. Give them something unique this Christmas If you fancy yourself a bit of a design whizz you can simply send us your design and we’ll commit it to high quality card ready for you to send. If on the other hand you’d rather just give us some artwork you’ve created, or a photograph, we can give that to our professional designers and they’ll transform it into a finished card that your recipients are sure to love, along with your own personalised message. Whether you want to create a batch of cards with a single design or use a number of different designs to create a full personalised set of Christmas cards, we can turn your ideas into high quality cards. We can also take several designs from you and turn them into one order - saving you both hassle and money. Looking for inspiration? When it comes to the design of your Christmas cards, the sky’s the limit. Here are a few ideas to help you get those creative juices flowing. Family photographs – Take a picture of the whole family, with or without Santa hats, and put it on the front of your Christmas cards. Nature scenes – If you like dabbling in photography or you’re a pro with an SLR, why not take some beautiful pictures of your surroundings and put them on a card. Even better if they’re covered in snow. Artistic designs/ cartoons – Skilled with a pencil or a brush? Share your talent by creating a series of personalised festive designs, or even your own humorous cartoon sketches. Are your children budding artists? – We can convert your younger family members' drawings and artwork into Christmas cards. Imagine what a boost that will give them!

2012 is a big year for London businesses and one full of potential. The Jubilee weekend may have been and gone but the Olympics, Paralympics, Wimbledon and an eclectic variety of festivals and goings-on are still taking place. This means more visitors, more people on the streets of the capital and even more possibilities for marketing your business.
Flyers, posters and leaflets are often an effective means of promotion, but if you’re looking to do something to stand out from the crowd, a range of custom-printed novelty products is a powerful and innovative way of doing so.
Why use printed novelty products?
Whether you intend to charge for them or give them away for free, novelty printed items have a unique quirkiness that draws people’s attention. Everyone loves a little kitsch from time to time, especially during a big event season, and you can tap into this either to promote your business and raise awareness, or simply to add a few unique and attractive items to your product range.
Here at the London Printing Company we can print the design of your choice on a huge range of novelty items, whether that’s your logo, a witty slogan or phrase or a distinctive and colourful pattern or picture. We’ve got the equipment and the expertise to print your design on everything from mugs, T-shirts, baseball caps, belts, jackets, novelty cheques and just about anything else imaginable. We carry out all printing in house, so we can also get the job done very quickly – in some cases within 24 hours.
A few ideas
Novelty printing enables you to get creative in promoting your business. For instance, with the Olympics just around the corner you might print some T-shirts for your staff to wear to entice the crowds in off the street to take a look at what you have to offer (even something simple like a cheeky caption may do the trick in capturing the attention of passers-by).
Or you could try creating novelty souvenirs which visitors to the Olympics and other events may purchase for themselves as keepsakes, or for friends and family back home. Clearly anything with a London or a sporting theme is going to do well this summer, but do be mindful of encroaching on protected Olympics trademarks (See our Top 5 things Small Businesses in London can do to Benefit from the Olympics blog). We can help with designs too, as we have experienced Graphic Designs in-house to bring your ideas to life.
Get in touch today to discuss how The London Printing Company can help you make the most of this Olympic summer!

You've been invited to attend a tradeshow at the 11th hour, but you don’t have any marketing materials printed up. You’re due to attend an important networking event tomorrow afternoon and you've just discovered that you’ve got only three business cards left. Your intern accidentally recycled your entire stack of leaflets right before a busy trade weekend.
In all these situations, your natural instinct may tell you that there’s little to be done and that you’ll simply have to ‘make do’. But with our 24 hour printing service, the show can and will go on, with whatever marketing materials you require.
What exactly do we mean by ’24 hour printing’? Exactly what we say – if you give us a printing job at 1PM on Thursday, we can have it to you by 1PM on Friday.
Printing on time, but not in a hurry
The reason that we’re able to deliver top quality printing in such a short time scale isn’t that we’re some new breed of supermen and women, or automatons diligently working through the night (we need to put our feet up and get some shut-eye as much as the next guys).
What makes us different from many other printers is that we actually have all the machinery needed to get the job done in-house. If you order some banners and T-shirts for your upcoming promotional event, we don’t just knock-up the design and then ship it out elsewhere to be printed; our widely experienced team work together on top of the range equipment to see the project through from beginning to completion, on time every time.
Whether you need a stack of attractive flyers, a set of vinyl graphics, novelty items with your logo on, custom-printed T-shirts, hats, tea towels or anything else, we can get it to you exactly when you most need it. In fact, in the case of business cards we can get them printed for you in under an hour – perfect for networking emergencies.
But quick printing doesn’t mean rushed printing. When you use the London Printing Company for your urgent marketing and promotional needs, we guarantee top quality results every time.
