June 28th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

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!


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.


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. 


If you prefer, you can  write your testimonial here. Either way, you will be entered into the draw!

By the way, a big shout out 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…

PEP’s Fact of the day! Did you know the word ‘almost’ is the longest word in the English dictionary spelt alphabetically

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.


*Pop the kettle on Charlie! ;-)

May 31st – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

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


…this month, you can win this ‘Celebration 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!


Coming next FridayPEP’s June newsletter, the winner of the hamper will be announced and a run down on the orders Team PEP have been working on!

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

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.


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’


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.


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…


…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.


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!


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


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!!


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!

*Yes it’s true, if you win, we will be expecting a photo!

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


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.


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.


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!


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

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!


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!


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)!


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


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!*

Prize Draw

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

April 5th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

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.


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.


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.


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! 


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:


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.


This week we have also been busy printing legal corners – one 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.
