May 24th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Even better than that – Thank PEP it’s Bank Holiday weekend!

So, have you got anything planned for the bank holiday? I hope the weather is nice so we can enjoy it rather than being stuck indoors…

But, before we go off and enjoy the long weekend, we still have a bunch of orders ready to complete today before that glass of wine awaits us.

Legal Corners have been the job of the week, with another batch of orders just boxed and ready for dispatch.

Legal-corners

An increasing amount of Solicitors and Local Councils are using our printed Legal Corners to keep important papers together. The corners are perfect for providing a professional filing system by personalising the case files with your personal stamp. We can create your very own personalised legal corner with your contact details on. We EVEN create the artwork for FREE – all you have to do is upload your logo. We will then email you a proof and once approved, we will print and deliver. Aren’t we good to you?

And, remember if you order this month, you will get your hands on our ‘May thank you pack’

new-thank-you-pack

But, don’t worry if you miss out on this months pack, another thank you from PEP to you will be coming in June!

Speaking of thank yous…the PEP bosses are thanking Team PEP for all our hard work by getting us new work tops.* Here is the box of goodies awaiting the embroidery.

tops-ready-for-embroidery

Embroidered work tops are a great way to make long-lasting work wear for your team.  Team PEP have opted for a range of coloured polo tops, short sleeved shirts and not forgetting a fleece for this nice spring weather! Here’s hoping I won’t need the fleece this weekend…have fun whatever you do and I will see you next Friday!

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

May 10th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Hi blog readers! Long time no speak! Sorry for my absence the last couple of weeks but I was up in Shropshire visiting family the first Friday and then I came back…

shropshire

…with a nasty cold. Great eh?! Next time I will just stay in Worthing and write my blog!

Anyway, enough about me and my sore throat, lets get back to business, and boy do I have loads to tell you about. First off is our new thank you pack. As our regular customers will know, in April we launched a thank you pack which goes out with every order. We will be doing a different one every month as we feel it is a great way for our customers to get to know Team PEP, be able to write a testimonial for us or make a suggestion, receive a free gift, and even be in with a chance to win a prize. Just PEP’s little way to say thanks for buying from us! Last month it was all about love hearts and getting to know about one of our Directors, Andi.

pep-thank-you-pack-2

This month, we have a little key-ring pressie for you and you can find out all about our Studio Manager, Nick! Collect all of the magnificent seven members of Team PEP over the next few months and you could win a magnificent prize, so make sure you keep hold of them!

new-thank-you-pack

And just like last month, we have a brand new hamper for our monthly prize draw. All you have to do is fill in the testimonial card (enclosed in the thank you pack) and pop it in the post for free, and you could be in with a chance of winning our ‘Celebration’ Hamper -

win-this-celebration-hamper

By the way, you can also fill in a testimonial card in the Worthing shop – just ask Ollie, Terry and me. Or, if you prefer, you can write a review direct on the website here. We don’t care how you do it, just so long as you say something nice! 

Last month’s winner was the lovely Lucy* who popped in yesterday to receive her ‘take a break’ hamper. Here is what she said about us:

So pleased with the quality of printing from PEP. The guys there were really helpful and friendly. A great service and competitive price. Thank you to all at PEP, I’m certainly going to recommend you to others!!

hamper-winner

Congratulations Lucy and thanks for choosing PEP and for taking the time to write a testimonial.  Enjoy the prize!

As well as the new thank you pack, we have also just finished printing this months newsletter, which is all about promotion.

Printed Promo Items

Our customers often think that Team PEP just print stationery, flyers, leaflets and banners. They sometime forget all the in-between stuff like keyrings, t-shirts, pens, mugs, mouse mats etc. that can be a great little item for any company promotion or event. The newsletter focuses on key-rings and with prices starting from only £39, why don’t you unlock the potential in your next offer! Give the team a call on 01903 641714.

Another example of a non-printed item we do is embroidered tops. Here is the Brighton Phoenix Flames Basketball team training kit just finished off this week. We will be sponsoring the team again next season so they have the Summer to work hard and of course look good with their new tops!

Embroidered Tops

See you next Friday! I promise I won’t go catching any more colds!

April 19th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

So did you go and cheer on the runners in the Brighton Marathon last Sunday? NRG Sussex was one of our customers who ran it. We printed his vest top last week. We asked Mark from the company how it went:

“It was a great day thanks, my time was 3:56 and Scarlett’s was 4 hours exactly! All down to the great crowd support

marks-marathon-top

Brilliant running times! Well done! I would love to have a go…but not sure my body is up to it!

But, I am up to designing lots of creative work for our customers, just like this beautiful bespoke wedding invitation I have just completed.

wedding-invitation

Combining the Brides Indian heritage with the Scottish background of the Groom, it was a wonderful brief to work on. Next will be the table name cards for their big day! Here at PEP we have two options for wedding stationery – both high quality, the only difference being the design. Option one is choosing from one of our catalogue designs or option two is where our design team will create a bespoke design from your brief. If you want one of our designers to create something from scratch, all you need to do is call Kelly on 01903 641714 to discuss your needs. Whichever option you choose, we will do our best to make sure it is as stress-free as possible so you can concentrate on getting ready for the big day!

Hopefully Cheryl and Andrew have got their above invite in the post to all their guests so they can now focus on the rest of the wedding planning. I also hope they have filled in one of testimonial cards which they should have received in the thank-you pack enclosed with their order. I should point out that you can also write a testimonial here if you prefer. We don’t mind how or when you do it, just so long as you write something nice! And, don’t forget, the best one this month will be in with a chance to win this ‘take a break’ hamper!

Prize Draw

One team that cannot ‘take a break’ is Team PEP as once again, the press and the shop have been super busy! We have had the usual mixed bag of print and design orders but this week has mainly been about banners, just like this outdoor PVC banner that we have just finished for one of our ‘most loved’ customers.

printed-banner

With our state of the art wide format printer, we can produce fantastic full colour pvc banners. Perfect for your next promotion, for an outdoor exhibition or event or just for someones birthday. Complete with lamination (if outdoor) and eyelets ready for you to hang. What more could you want? A great price? Ok! Prices start from only £35 for an indoor banner 6ft x 2ft! Give the team a call on  01903 641714 to discuss further.

Another type of banner that I have been working on is for the new web banners for another ‘most loved’ customer - Mollycoddle Childrenswear. The spring/summer range is now ready to view and buy with new products just added. Although I may be biased as they are one of our customers, I have to say their clothes are beautiful. So, if you need a gift for a friends baby shower or just for your own little ones, check their website out. You won’t be disappointed!  While I am on the subject of websites, don’t forget that PEP can provide full e-commerce websites just like Mollycoddles – give us a call on 01903 641714!

Mollycoddle childrenswear

Anyway, I had better be off as I have to finish the gallery page for Mollycoddle. No rest for the wicked!

See you next Friday! Remember to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to keep up to date on what’s happening at PEP Towers!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

How are you all on this Friday afternoon? Hope you are all well and ready for the weekend? I am off to watch (not run) the Brighton Marathon which is this Sunday. Are any of you lot taking part? A good thing for runners to do is to have their name printed on their top so everyone can cheer you on personally, just like these two customers have done…good luck Michelle and Mark!

Brighton-marathon

I am having to write my little blog a bit later than normal today as I have been at a Google seminar all morning learning more about online marketing. It will be a really big help when I design new websites and when I work on updating and enhancing existing websites. Design is all well and good, but what’s the point if the site doesn’t get seen! 

Speaking of websites…just finished a holding page for a new customer. More pages are to be added, but at least the online presence is there for now with a simple slideshow portfolio…more to follow…watch this space!

xpert-web

This customer will of course now get one of our new thank you packs as does every order with us!

Thank you for your order!

We keep getting very nice comments about them (though some seem to be more about the sweet treat)!

love-hearts

Why are we giving away the thank you packs I hear you ask! Well, since our wonderful customers have voted us ‘the most loved printers in Sussex’ for the third year running, we wanted to give a little love back! By the way, here is Mark collecting our awards this week.

Most loved printers in Sussex

While on the subject of the thank you packs, inside you will find one of these testimonial cards -

how-did-we-do

If you fill it in and post it (or drop back into the shop) you will be entered into one of our monthly prize draws. This month you could win this ‘take a break’ hamper!*

On that note, I am off to take a break – wonder if anyone in the office will take the hint

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

So how was your Easter bank holiday weekend? Did you miss your favourite blog? Or, were you too busy eating your chocolate eggs…or a chocolate bunny in the case of my Easter gift from Ollie.

Easter-bunny

So, can you remember where we left off? Well, I was complaining that some of Team PEP had been away/was going away on their hols so we were busy busy busy in the shop. Now it’s a week later and everyone is back – Andi is back from Devon and Terry is back from Paris. So, the big question is, did Terry make it to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

eiffel

I am happy to report that the answer is yes! It sounds like it was very scary but our Terry didn’t let that stop him! Good on yer Tez!

So the whole of Team PEP are back working hard on all the orders you lovely lot keep giving us! But, not ones to just take and not give back, here’s what you will now be getting with every order.

pep-thank-you-pack

Yes, our new thank-you packs are ready and waiting to go out with every order placed. Each month, you will get to know each member of Team PEP. This month, it’s Andi’s turn! 

pep-thank-you-pack-2

You will also have the opportunity to win some prizes! But, if you want to get your hands on one, you have to place an order!

Speaking of orders, what’s been happening at PEP Towers this week I hear you ask? Well, as usual a mixed bag of orders has come our way, including these lovely docufolders:

docufolders

Our docufolders are great as they are digitally printed which means you can have as few as 10! Each come with an inside pocket which has slits to hold your business card. The perfect presentation folder! Interested? Call us on 01903 641714 to speak to one of the team.

docufolders-inside

This week we have also been busy printing legal cornersone order was even for a business in Australia – quite a bit away from our little shop in Worthing! Because of this sudden surge of interest in our legal corners, PEP have just launched new prices and new packages. So, if you are a solicitor or accountant, check out our two new ranges – Value and Classic – the same high quality for both but printed on different card.

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

This week has been busy, busy, busy! While the rest of us are getting on with the stacks or orders, Andi is off enjoying himself in Devon and boy do we miss him! Although Andi should be on his way back as I type, we cannot relax as another team member, Terry, is jetting off to Paris. Ooo la la! He keeps telling me that he is scared of heights so I will fill you all in next week if he actually manages to get to the top of the Eiffel Tower…

Our coffee/cake morning last Friday in aid of Comic Relief was a success! Everyone seemed to enjoy our special cupcakes…I managed to get one too (after I donated of course!) and I can report that they were delicious!

comic-relief-cake

While I am on the subject of Comic Relief, I should remind everyone that there is only one week left on our special Comic Relief business card offer up until the 31st March,  PEP will donate £1 from every business card order to Comic Relief. So, last chance to give some dosh while getting some rather fab printed business cards! We have three different ranges, so there will definitely be one that suits your budget!

Speaking of cards…but of a different kind, we are launching a brand new ‘thank-you’ pack from 1st April. Every order will get one – basically we want to make sure our lovely customers know how much we love them! In the pack, you will get to know all about the PEP team, have the opportunity to win some prizes and we may even throw in a little sweet treat for you! But, to get one, you have to place an order!

Thank you card from PEP

Although our digital printers and litho presses have been churning out the usual batch of printed goodies for our customers, we have also managed to print some new PEP promo stuff this week…like these lovely stickers: 

i-heart-pep-stickers

We didn’t stop at one set of stickers though…we designed another one just to say thank you for loving us for the third year running. (By the way, if you don’t know why we have been voted the “most loved printers in Sussex”, take a look here.)

thank-you-for-loving-pep-st

Anyway, I had better be off to help Ollie in the shop!

Remember to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to keep up to date on what’s happening at PEP Towers! If this reminder isn’t enough, maybe one of our new ‘like us/follow us’ cards will help!

Next Friday is bank holiday so I will be having a week off from my blog and enjoying lots of chocolate eggs instead. See you on the 5th April!

March 15th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

No birthday celebrations this week at PEP, just snow chaos for some of the PEP team. Yes, the snow on Monday night brought the PEP commuters to a bit of a halt on their journey home. My usual half hour trip took 3 and a half hours! I was skidding all over the place, needed a kind lady to push me up a hill and then I was diverted from one road to another. At one point, I really thought I was going to have to kip at Ollie’s place…

But, enough of the moaning…as it’s time for my Comic Relief Blog Special!

Is everyone getting into the spirit of Comic Relief? The team at the Worthing shop certainly are! 

Ready for Comic Relief!

We have been making coffee and handing out cakes to our lovely customers in the shop all morning to raise money for Comic Relief. Here are some before shots…

Printed mugs at PEP the Printers

Do you like our new mugs fresh off our mug press? We just had to celebrate being your “most loved” printers for the third year in a row!

Here are some of the lovely ‘Comic Relief’ cup cakes Andi baked last night. Hopefully I have some spare change so I can buy one to go with my cuppa!

Comic-Relief-cakes

During and after shots coming in next week’s blog!

As well as our Comic Relief coffee morning, throughout March, PEP will be donating £1 from every business card order to Comic Relief. 

Even though Comic Relief is today, all business card orders until the end of March will help in raising money for the great charity. We will let you know our total amount raised at the end of the month. If you would like to donate to Comic Relief, click here. Enjoy the Red Nose Day live on BBC1 from 7pm tonight where you will be able to see what all the donations do.

Remember to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to keep up to date on what’s happening at PEP Towers! 

Until next Friday!

March 8th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

This week has been full of the usual print, copy and design work…but it was also the birthday of one of the PEP bosses, Andi! The birthday boy even brought us cakes to celebrate! Needless to say, they were gone in minutes! I opted for a homemade chocolate cupcake and it was delicious!

cakes

Have you seen our March newsletter yet? If you haven’t, where have you been? If you have, then you will know that this month, we are focusing on business cards in a bid to raise some money for Comic Relief. We will donate £1 from every business card order in March to the charity, so don’t put it off until next month – order your business cards today! Prices start from only £19.50! If our usual monthly business card orders are anything to go by, we should be able to raise quite a bit of dosh!

comic-relief-at-shop

Comic Relief day is next Friday (15th March) and we are hoping to have a ‘Coffee and Cakes’ day in the Worthing shop to raise even more funds for the great charity. So, if you are in the Worthing area next Friday, pop in, give us a few pennies for Comic Relief and we will reward you with a coffee and cake. If you like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter, we will keep you up to date on the event details. 

We have just finished a website refresh for one of our “most loved” customers this week. The old website was one of the first ones PEP created many years ago when we branched out into web design so it was definitely in need of a new look!

Here is the before shot


website-seven-ways-before

and here is the after shot…

website-seven-ways-after

What do you reckon? As you can see, the website is now modern and fresh with a great image slideshow on all pages to give a dynamic feel for the viewer. Check it out here. Our web packages start from as little as £299 so if you need an online presence or if your current website is in need of a refresh, just give us a call on 01903 641714.

As well as creating fab websites, we can also create fab mug towers! Here’s one Ollie made earlier!

Buy printed mugs at PEP

Joking aside, our mug press has been on fire this week!* I guess it’s because our customers love the price tag! Our mugs are only £9.99 and each one comes complete in a presentation box! We may even throw in a free teabag or sachet of coffee if you’re lucky!

Quite a while ago in my weekly blog, I mentioned that  PEP was sponsoring the WRFC MAD rugby team by printing their t-shirts. Well, this week, we got sent a couple of photographs showing the ‘Monsters and Dragons’ team looking very professional in the sponsored kits.

sponsored-kits

Here is an action shot -

Whatever you need a t-shirt for - hen party, stag do, someone’s birthday, your name on the back of a football shirt or your company logo on a smart polo shirt - Team PEP can do it! We can do a simple printed transfer, a vinyl transfer or have your logo embroidered for that extra special look. And, we don’t stop at t-shirts – we can print on fleeces, hoodies, caps, beanie hats, flags, pillow cases, mouse mats, magnets…do I need to go on???

Remember to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to keep up to date on what’s happening at PEP Towers!Have you been reading ‘FACT @ 4′ on Facebook and Twitter? Every day at 4 o’clock, Andi posts an interesting fact just like this one:

Fact of the day! Did you know the letter W is the only letter in the alphabet that has 3 syllables, all others have just 1.

Until next Friday!

March 1st – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

First things first, as a Welsh lady, I had better start off with saying Happy Saint David’s Day! Saint David’s Day is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and falls on the 1st of March each year. The first day of March was chosen in remembrance of the death of Saint David. Tradition holds that he died on that day in 589. The date was declared a national day of celebration within Wales in the 18th century. It’s funny how not many people know this date but easily remember Saint Patrick’s Day! Maybe it’s the Guinness!

Can you believe it’s March already? Everyone who knows PEP will know that the start of the month means only one thing – a new newsletter!

Business cards at PEP

This month, we are focusing on business cards – we have various ranges to choose from depending on your budget – value, classic and deluxe. We can even send you a free sample pack of our business card ranges if you cannot make up your mind…

Free business card sample pack

To make buying your business cards from PEP even more tempting, we will give £1 from every business card order in March to the wonderful charity Comic Relief. Hopefully we can raise a bit of money for such a great cause which has raised over £800 million since it began in 1985. Will you be doing anything for Comic Relief?  There are lots of ideas on their website from running a bake sale to hosting a quiz to shaving your head! If you want to get involved, have a look here.

So apart from the imminent rush of business card orders we are expecting just like this one…

Buy your business cards online at PEP the printers

work this week has been another hectic one! But, we love being kept on our toes with the mix bag of jobs our wonderful customers keep giving us! This little A5 16pp black and white booklet job has just been printed, boxed ready for delivery. One of MANY jobs that are due out today but we are not complaining – keep those orders coming in!

Black and white booklets

I know I have talked a bit about comic relief which is coming up on the 15th March, but I should also remind you that Mother’s Day is coming up the Sunday before on the 10th March (only a week away!) Here at PEP we have two great personalised gift options – a mug for only £9.99 or if you want to spend a bit more, we can create a canvas print from only £34.00. You can buy the canvas prints online or call us on 01903 641714 if you would like to order a mug. Last orders for canvas prints is Tuesday 5th so hurry if you want one! 

Mug for Mother's Day

Remember to like us on facebook and follow us on twitter to keep up to date on what’s happening at PEP Towers!Have you been reading ‘FACT @ 4′ on Facebook and Twitter? Every day at 4 o’clock, Andi posts an interesting fact just like this one:

PEP’s Fact @ 4! Venus is the only planet that rotates clockwise. Does that mean we and the rest of them are backwards?

Until next Friday :-)
