July 12th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Argghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! It has been busy busy in the PEP shop the last couple of weeks, due to staff being off and a huge stack of orders. But, we are not complaining – we love to be busy, it just means my little blog gets put to the bottom of the queue…

However, while I have five minutes spare, here is a quick catch up on the last fortnight at PEP Towers.

First things first, the winner of the Wimbledon hamper has been announced. Congratulations Fiona!

So we now have a new hamper to win! This month, it is the ‘Barbeque Hamper’ full of local produce and even some bbq tongs! Now summer is in full swing, we are positive everyone will want to win it! (Don’t worry, if you are Vegetarian or Vegan, we will swap the meat for some lovely Quorn sausages!)

How do we win it, I hear you cry!!? Well, look inside your thank you pack (that you will get when you place an order) and inside you will find a testimonial card - just fill it in and send it off and you will be entered into the draw! If you prefer, you can  write your testimonial here. 

Speaking of our thank you packs, there is a new one out! Guess who is on the front of this month’s card…little old me! Remember to keep hold of the other cards from the last few months…as a magnificent prize will be up for grabs if you have cards of all of the PEP Magnificent 7!

Other BIG news at the PEP shop this week is our new work tops have arrived! Doesn’t Mark look smart!

New-pep-tops

Mark was brave and opted for the bright coloured tops…keep your shades on when he is wearing the pink one! He will not go unnoticed, that’s for sure!! If you need work tops embroidered, you know who to call…PEP!

I managed to grab this little pic of Mark this morning while he was helping in the shop as we complete all the orders for delivery today . We also have Charlie (usually our Saturday boy) joining us for the summer AND this week we have also had Sam, from a local school doing his work experience week with us. Here is just some of the work he has designed with us over the week – flyers, mouse mats, business cards

… and this afternoon he is going to be making a t-shirt for himself! We hope you enjoyed yourself Sam! Thanks for your hard work and do pop in to see us whenever you want!

Thanks again to all our new Twitter followers and Facebook likes this week – we hope you will enjoy our daily chat and our PEP ‘Fact @4′…just like this one from yesterday…

Fact of the day! The width of your arms stretched out is about the same length of your whole body. Tell me something I didn’t know!

Print, design, copy and now facts – aren’t we brilliant!

See you next Friday! Call us on 01903 641714 to speak to one of the team if you need anything in the meantime.

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Sorry for my lack of blog last week but Terry was off on his holidays so as you can imagine, it was pretty hectic in the shop.

So, what’s been happening the past couple of weeks I hear you ask. Well, firstly it was my birthday…which means another year older but also means…cakes!

Birthday cakes

Unfortunately there was no rest for the birthday girl as orders have been coming in thick and fast! Luckily we now have our Saturday boy, Charlie, to help us out during the week over the busy Summer period.*

So, the orders we have been processing have been the usual stationery, banners and flyers, but guess what? We even had an order for 2014 calendars! Talk about being organised!

calendars

This ‘most loved’ customer has calendars printed every year using picturesque photos that they just send us and we put the whole thing together. With prices starting from only £11.99 and many style varieties to choose from, it’s never to early to get prepared for next year! Don’t worry, I am not going to start talking about Christmas cards…yet!

For placing the order for the calendars, the above customer will receive one of our thank-you packs.

June-thank-you-pack

Make sure you open it when you receive your order because as well as a little sweet treat

…there is also a testimonial card and if you fill it in and send it back (for free) you will be entered into our monthly prize draw.  This month it is the ‘Wimbledon’ hamper filled with Pimms, scones, clotted cream and strawberries.

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Can you believe it’s the end of another month! For us at PEP, it means another winner will be announced. Yes, every month (since April) we have been giving all our customers (when they place an order) a ‘thank-you’ pack just to say thanks for supporting us. As well as a little gift for you, we also include a testimonial card for you to write something nice about PEP. Everyone who writes a review gets put into a hat at the end of each month to win one of our special hampers. Last month Lucy won our ‘Take a Break’ hamper

Here are just a few of the testimonials we have received this month (who are now in with a chance of winning the hamper):

Adrian R said about PEP the printers

“We have now used PEP for 3 years for our annual fixture cards. Every year we get a great service and great product at a very good price. Very quick turnaround from query to delivery which is superb as we are normally late in designing our fixture cards. We will be using PEP for many more years.”

Teressa O said about PEP the printers

“As an American, I am very fussy on customer service and getting the best quality for my money. These guys are top notch and I highly recommend PEP for all your printing needs.

Michael O said about PEP the printers

Very helpful, we would recommend the company to anyone needing any type of printing job.

Ray J said about PEP the printers

Always cheerful, always helpful. Over 20 years of satisfaction. Would never use another printer.”

Zoe S said about PEP the printers

Excellent service, friendly staff and really good value for money. Shopped about first but couldn’t be beaten!”

Easy eh? You can write as much or as little as you like about us, or you can even tell us how we could improve things…we understand we are not perfect.*

Don’t worry if you miss out on the above ‘Celebration’ hamper, as from Monday, our new thank-you pack will be going out with every order and you could win this ‘Wimbledon’ hamper! Don’t we spoil you!
