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

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

So Andi is back in the throw of things with another crazy week at PEP the Printers. In fact, he has been so busy over at head office, I haven’t even seen him yet! He must be in the midst of getting the press rolling with all the flyer and leaflet orders, while over at the shop, it’s the usual digital frenzy!

I have just worked on these lovely simple wedding invites. If you are working to a small budget, Team PEP can help with advice on how to keep costs down while still getting a high quality product. This couple did the artwork so all I had to do was print in black and white on a lovely thick white card and trim to size. All for just £39! Team PEP are at a wedding fayre in Worthing next month so if you see us there, come and have a chat to us about your upcoming wedding/civil ceremony.

Look what’s just come off the press for one of the bosses…yes more business cards for Mark! As our main networker at PEP, business cards are a necessity for Mark when he is out and about at meetings. We have three ranges of business card so whatever you need and whatever your budget, we can help. Having something to give to a potential customer is a company must-have. Get a free sample pack here.

One company that already knows the importance of business cards is…

one of our “most loved” customers who have just had another order of the PEP Classic range of business cards.

Aside from printing, we have just boxed up this little lot of embroidered goodies.

Embroidered tops

People often forget that we do printed and embroidered t-shirts. Whatever you need – maybe a bunch of t-shirts for the girls on a hen night, or your company logo branded on your workwear, Team PEP can give you great prices.

As a lover of tattoos, I have enjoyed doing these colour sheets for a local tattoo shop. Next week I am doing spiral bound books of their work – more pics to follow!

Before I go, I made a new friend this week…

There I was busy working and I could hear this miaowing coming from outside. He was pressed against the window but got scared and jumped down before I could take a photo. But, he stopped still enough for me to grab this shot!.

As always, if you need anything, pop into the Worthing shop, call us on 01903 641714 or visit our website for more information on all our products and services.

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

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank you to everyone that came to our Macmillan coffee morning last Friday. The coffee seemed to warm everyone up and the homemade muffins (especially the chocolate ones) were delicious! We are keeping the charity box and raffle tickets on the counter for a bit longer so if you are popping in over the next couple of weeks, why not give a bit of spare change to this good cause? Every little bit helps! If you are not near us in sunny Worthing, visit the Macmillan website here.

Macmillan-coffee-morning

So the start of a new month means a new newsletter! This month, we are reminding our lovely customers that there is less than 90 days until Christmas (actually only 80 days as of today!) so it’s time to start thinking about your Christmas cards. Whether you need a small batch to send to friends and family or a large run to give to your customers, all you have to do is tell us what you want, and we will print it. And, we will even throw in the envelopes! Coming soon to buy online so in the meantime, call us on 01903 641714. 

Christmas cards

On the back of the newsletter, we have listed some of our calendar prices. We can do hanging calendars, magazine style calendars, tent calendars, pocket calendars, cd case calendars…do I need to go on?!? A great gift for your customers (as you can put your logo on it and be in front of them all year round) or a perfect gift for a friend or your family. Give us your favourite photos and we will do the rest! All you have to do is worry about the rest of your Christmas shopping! Give Team PEP a call on 01903 641714 before the Christmas rush begins!

Calendars available at PEP

Some customers are already on the ball with their Christmas card buying. Here are a few hundred cards that I have just printed. Now they just need scoring…where’s Andi when you need him? Oh yeah, he is off enjoying the Lake District this week….looks like I’ll be scoring them then!

Christmas cards at great prices!

Apart from going Christmas crazy with cards and calendars, this week at PEP has been another manic one. A huge batch of T-shirts being printed in the Worthing shop…

and giant posters (2 meters high & just over 8 meters in length) being printed and trimmed over at head office for a shop refit in Brighton.*

*Did you spot Nick hiding in his studio?

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

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Rain rain go away, come back another day! Hasn’t it been a horrible wet week! Well to warm everyone up, today we are holding a Macmillan coffee morning and anyone and everyone is welcome to join us! We even have some fresh baked home made muffins available, baked by the bosses own fair hands! So pop down to the shop in Worthing this morning and grab one while there are still some available. If you cannot make it…

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Until I get my hands on a coffee and muffin, I am wrapped up in my PEP fleece. It is the first time I have got it out of the wardrobe since Spring, so it must mean Autumn has arrived :-( I have also spotted Ollie in his so it can’t just be me feeling the cold!

Time to pop on the PEP fleece
By the way, if you fancy an embroidered fleece (or any piece of clothing for that matter), you know where to come!* This week alone Team PEP have embroidered 5 fleeces, 16 polo tops and even 6 beanie hats! It really is the best way to brand your work wear. Not available to buy online yet, so call us on us on 01903 641714. 

On a print and design note, we have been churning out more flyers thanks to our new 24 hour service. It seems quite a few of you need flyers quickly! Here is just one of the flyer piles on the guillotine ready for trimming. With prices as low as £29 for 100 flyers printed on a gorgeous gloss stock, I am sure we will continue to be inundated with rush orders!

Cheap flyers available at PEP the Printers

In the design studio, Nick has been a busy bee with stationery bits and bobs while I have been finishing off another website – looks nice doesn’t it :-)

My School Art Project

Team PEP designed everything from the branding and stationery right through to the website, which has just launched this week. Take a look here to find out all about their exciting School Christmas Card Project.

Over at head office, the presses and finishing machines are rolling as usual…but this week, it has been a bit more hectic as a new carpet has just been fitted so everything has had to be moved and put back in again (while still completing all orders). It is all back in place now…but no shoes allowed ;-)

Well I am off to grab a muffin before they all run out – remember if you are in the Worthing area, pop to Tarring Road and have a coffee with us (and help raise funds for Macmillan at the same time!) Next week is a new month…which means only one thing…a new offer!

Should you need Team PEP before we meet again next week, pop into the shop or call us on 01903 641714.

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

So Terry is back – thankfully! I dont think me and Ollie could have survived without him any longer! Maybe it serves us right for doing too many good offers! Speaking of which, the September offer is still proving to be a success…have you seen the newsletter yet?

September Newsletter - more offers from PEP

If you have, you will know we have launched a new 24 hour service for short run flyers and posters. Here is just one of the flyer orders we have finished this week (by the way, if you are thinking ‘hey, that’s a nice design‘..you would be right in thinking that Team PEP did it!)

A5 flyers available at PEP the Printers

The stationery craze that started last week hasn’t stopped with business cards being the job of the week. Full colour, spot colour, laminated, single or double sided…whatever takes your fancy, TeamPEP can do it!

Get business cards at PEP the Printers

Inbetween the stationery and flyer jobs, we have just started to run the calendars for the Kenyan School Project charity that I told you about a couple of weeks ago. If you would like to buy a calendar to support the charity or make a donation, visit www.kenyanschoolsproject.co.uk

Remember to order your calendars soon!

Calendars may not be something you are thinking about since it is only September but this week Team PEP have started printing out Christmas Card orders! It is never too soon to get them sorted…better that than waiting until December and then you have a big rush on! Remember only 94 days to go!!

At PEP we offer a great range of Christmas cards so instead of posting out the same old cards this year, how about sending a unique one of your own? We can print almost any photo, drawing or even your own child’s masterpiece onto quality card. And, if you’re a business, it’s a great way to increase brand awareness. Check out our prices below…

Great Christmas Card prices at PEP the Printers

To go with your Christmas card, a personalised gift is always a good idea…and guess what, Team PEP can do them too! From jigsaws, mouse mats, calendars to snow globes…do I need to go on?

Should you need Team PEP before we meet again next week, pop into the shop or call us on 01903 641714.

September 14th – TPIF – Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

Only a short blog this week as its manic, manic, manic and we are one body down as Terry has flown off to Spain for some sun! He is off until next thursday so it’s up to me and Ollie to look after the shop and get everything designed, printed, trimmed and boxed ready for our lovely customers to collect or our reliable courier to deliver. With the usual workload we are always pretty darn busy, but this week, with the sample pack introduction and the new 24 hour service for flyers and posters, it has been 5 hectic days. I really mean it this week – thank PEP it’s Friday!

So, the business card sample packs have been available for a week and boy, what a success they have been! It seems quite a few of you really like to have a feel before you buy! And, why shouldn’t you! Remember to keep emailing me about the next sample pack you would like – kelly@pep4print.co.uk – in the meantime, if you want the business card pack, click here.

PEP business card sample pack

The September newsletter is still finding its way in finished jobs and through the letterboxes of our mailing list, which means a lot of you have been hearing about our 24 hour flyer and poster service…well, it certainly looks like it from our order tray!

Aside from the flyers, this week, everybody seems to have gone stationery mad! I haven’t printed this much stationery in ages! The business cards, letterheads and compliment slips are starting to take over the shop…

Tower of letterheads

…here is just one of the letterhead towers that are currently filling our hall space! I am just finishing off the last batch so I can get started on today’s short run flyer orders and the other bits and bobs that need to be finished before 5pm…

Remember the ‘print help’ blogs that I mentioned last week that Team PEP are going to start posting..well, the first one is up – if you want to find out about ‘bleed’ and why we need it, have a read here.

Should you need Team PEP before we meet again next week, pop into the shop or call us on 01903 641714. Now, it’s time for a cuppa and one of these…

Thank PEP it’s Friday!

So September is here! Drum roll please…Ladies and Gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to announce Molly Coddle Childrenswear as the winner of the PEP Discount Medal Facebook Prize Draw!  Molly Coddle will receive all three of our discount medals - Bronze (10%), Silver (15%) and Gold (25%). Congratulations Tracey and all at Molly Coddle!

While I am talking about Molly Coddle, I may as well give a little shout out about their website as we are currently updating it…

Web packages for every budget at PEP the Printers

The Molly Coddle website is one of our E-Commerce sites, but as always, PEP offer three ranges of websites so whatever your budget, we can create something for you. In fact, I have  just had a meeting with someone who wants a basic start-up 3 page website and when he heard the price of our VALUE web package - £299 – it was the perfect fit! So, that’s another website on my to-do list. (By the way, our web packages are not available to buy online yet so call us on 01903 641714 if you want to discuss anything further.)

The PEP September newsletter is now out and about and we are already starting to get some orders for our new 24 hour turnaround service.

September newsletter

If you haven’t heard about our new super speedy service for short run flyers and posters, then I had better fill you in, but I will make it short and sweet: send us your artwork and we will print, trim and box ready for collection in 24 hours! We can deliver too…but that will add a couple of days to the turnaround so just bear that in mind… We will also need the artwork to be print ready – we often have people ask what does ‘print ready’ mean…so I have dedicated a whole blog post to this which is coming soon!

This month, we have also just launched our first sample pack, which you can get here.

Business Card sample pack at PEP the Printers

Ever since we launched our three ranges of business cards back in March, they have been a success. However, we do find that customers want to have a feel of the card options before they choose which range they want to order. Our sample packs are free so head to our website now and fill in your details. More packs to come soon! If you have any suggestions to which we should do first, email me at kelly@pep4print.co.uk

The shop this week has been super busy (as always) with another huge batch of gloss stock just delivered for another run of flyers ready for collection tomorrow.

Flyers available at PEP the Printers

Over at head office, it’s all about finishing thousands of A5 8pp booklets inbetween the usual printing and plate making. That just leaves the design studio in which it is all about flyers and websites this week, and I had better be off to finish the Molly Coddle one!

Should you need Team PEP before we meet again next week, pop into the shop or call us on 01903 641714.

The end of the month means the end of the OlymPEPic discount medal vouchers. We have had so many winners I cannot name you all but well done, especially the customers that went for Gold! Were you lucky enough to win one? If you did, remember to use it before the expiry date!

If you didn’t get a PEP voucher, don’t get too sad as the start of a new month means a NEW offer!  Throughout September, Team PEP are focusing on short run flyers and posters and the best bit is that we will print them in 24 hours! So, if you are running a last minute offer/promotion or up against a tight deadline, this is the perfect time to head to PEP. All you have to do is give us print-ready artwork and we will print, trim and box ready for you to collect 24 little hours later!

24 hour flyers available in September

So, before we get inundated with flyer and poster orders, here’s a rundown of what’s been happening at PEP Towers over the last week. We have been doing lots of good turns this week. First up were some full colour DL 6pp leaflets for the Kenyan Schools Project. This charity is a husband and wife team based in Shropshire who raise money for schools and orphanages in Kenya. PEP will also be printing their 2013 calendars.

DL 6pp Leaflets available at PEP

Is it too early to be talking about calendars for next year? I know it’s not quite September but believe me, before you know it, it will be November and you will be wondering what to give your clients for Christmas. Calendars are a great corporate gift and it means you get to advertise you company all year round so your customers won’t forget you! I should also mention that we do Christmas cards and other promotional items including snow globes! There are only 116 days left to go you know! Call Team PEP on 01903 641714.

Remember these posters we printed?

A4 posters available at PEP the Printers

Well, the ‘Business in Basketball’ day was this week and it was a success! We printed some t-shirts for the Brighton Phoenix Flames team and also printed the certificates for the winners. For more pictures from the day, head over to their facebook page.

Business in Basketball day

PEP printed the t-shirts for the Basketball day

While I am on the subject on t-shirts, 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…just like our very own PEP uniform!

Transfer or embroidered t-shirts available at PEP Just give Team PEP a call at the shop to find out more on 01903 641714.

Before I go, I just want to wish everyone a HAPPY BRIGHTON PRIDE. If you are going, I will see you there!*

Well aren’t Team GB doing brilliantly! Currently we are third with a total of 52 medals! Wow!! It seems such a shame that it is almost over…I may well go down to the Brighton Big Screen at the weekend to try and soak in the atmosphere one last time. Then, on Sunday, it will be the closing ceremony. Will it be as good as the opener? It is rumoured that the Spice Girls will be reuniting for the occasion… maybe it’s just me that’s happy about that?*

Team PEP are also doing brilliantly with another week of customer satisfaction with all our printing and designing. One of our PEP Gold Medal winners this week was one of our “most loved” customers who had another run of takeaway menus printed. As the order was over £250, Athmane now qualifies for a PEP Gold Medal which means he will get a HUGE 25% off his next order!  Jealous? Well, better get your order in then! Only 3 more weeks to get your hands on one!

A5 4pp full colour leaflets

Remember every order over £100 will win you a PEP discount medal!

I think showing the new PEP stationery off last week has given some of our customers the boost to get their stationery printed. Here is just one of the newly designed stationery sets that we have had the pleasure of printing this week, all boxed and ready for customer collection.

Stationery sets available to buy online at PEP the Printers

Remember we have three price packages for printed stationery so whatever your budget, Team PEP can help….and, you can now buy online which makes everything so much easier for you. So, whether you need business cards, compliment slips, letterheads or continuation sheets, printed in full colour, pantone or black on plain paper, Conqueror or recycled stock, Team PEP have got it covered!

We are pretty good at posters too…

Posters available at PEP the Printers

The artwork was supplied to us so it was just a simple A1 colour print trimmed to fit the supplied frame. What a great way to advertise your prices! We can also laminate or foam mount up to A0 size so however you want to display your next offer or promotion, Team PEP and our fantastic large format printers can do it!

Remember the 17.6 foot beast from last week? Well we finally finished padding it..

NCR Pads available at PEP the Printers

Yes, that’s Andi hiding amongst all the pads…now all he has to do is find a big enough box to put them all in!

So, did you watch the Olympic Opening Ceremony? I watched it with my 3d specs on and I have to say it was bloomin’ brilliant! It was incredible watching it in 3D especially when the 5 gold rings came together to create the Olympic symbol. I was absolutely blown away by it. Well done Mr Boyle!

The games have been going for a week now and Team GB are doing pretty darn good. Just yesterday we went from twelfth to fifth place in the medal table… here’s to the second week being as successful. Go Team GB Go!

Before I go…here is a pic of a 17.6 foot beast! It is 250,000 2-part NCR sets which equates to 5.5 meters of paper, all fanned, numbered and collated. Whichever way you look at it, it’s a hell of a lot of padding and should keep Andi quiet for a day or two!
