Paralympics highlights printing work with Charities

The 2012 Paralympic Games are here this week! Design and Print for CharitiesAnd it’s an opportunity to highlight all the hard work done by UK & International Charities who work and support people with disabilities!

Marketing for Charities

Charities are finding things hard in this recession and focus on austerity with many suffering cutbacks to their funding. Many businesses forget that it’s important for Charities to also market themselves and develop printed marketing material to attract and promote to their audiences and so raise vital funds.

Spot On Design and Print work with many Charities and by offering them discounted rates and taking up some of the causes for our own company fundraising projects during the year.  Perhaps many more business organisations could do the same and help our Charities survive and grow.

Please contact Spot On Print in Blackpool if you would like to know more about how we can help Charities to promote themselves and raise awareness of their causes through creative printed marketing material.

Staycations – Is the Tourism Sector promoting enough?

Design and Print for Tourism SectorStaycations became a popular phenomenon in the UK in 2009 as a weak pound made overseas holidays significantly more expensive. From backyard pools and pitching a tent in the garden to visits to local parks, museums and attendance at local festivals, staycationers seem to be giving the local Tourism economy a boost!

The Tourism sector seems to be promoting more and Spot On Design and Print are definitely getting more printed material orders from this sector for Leaflets, Tickets, Posters and Brochures. But is the sector taking full advantage of this phenomenon?

If it’s a Staycation or Nearcation, whatever buzz words are being used means that there’s an opportunity to promote through the use of innovative printed material

Please contact us if you would like to know more about developing, designing and printing marketing material for the Tourist Sector.

Let your tables do the talking!

Laminated Table Talkers From Spot On PrintersInnovative laminated table talkers are a great printed product that can be instantly priced and ordered online or offline.

With quality printing on both sides,  Table Talkers create eye catching marketing opportunities on restaurant tables, trade show displays, hotel rooms and anywhere a marketing message can be displayed.

Laminated Table Talkers can be also wiped clean eliminating the need to replace soiled inserts. The minimum order quantity is a low 100 for Laminated Table Talkers.
