September 2022 highlights

A whirlwind September was filled exciting announcements, including some fantastic news around TEDxAberdeen! In this blog, we take a deep dive into some of the highlights from the month of September.

Good luck Nicola!

You may have already heard the good news, our Business Development Executive, Nicola, is expecting a baby soon! She is heading off at the end of this month on maternity leave.

We are thrilled for her expanding family and look forward to welcoming her back later next year. 

DIY DESIGN: How To Save Time By Knowing Your File Types

Knowing the different file types, which one to choose for your next design project and understanding how the end design is going to be used, can save you valuable time and a lot of last minute stress. 

In our recent blog post, we’ve outlined 10 of the most commonly used file types and depending on your project, when best to use each one. 


Market your business to your clients and customers with a professional, high quality calendar. We like to think of them as a ‘sticky piece’, by adding your branding, you’ll stay front of mind for the next 12 months.

We can print in a variety of sizes and styles from pocket-sized or desktop friendly to larger scale wall calendars.

Below is an example of a calendar design we did last year for Mark Walker at to include selected images from his portfolio.

No Wrong Path

Last month, our Managing Director Murray took part in DYW North East’s No Wrong Path initiative highlighting that there is no set route that leads to success. It was inspiring to hear so many great stories…

“I left school with very little qualifications, took a job as a trainee printer (the only job I was offered) after writing many letters that summer, and I’m still with the same company now! You can’t alter the past, but you can affect the future.”

Join the SQUAD this season…

Whether you call it a snood, a neck tube or a face scarf – everyone knows this as a product with purpose.

Autumn is upon us and the coldest months are fast approaching, which means there’s never been a better time to place an order of branded snoods to keep your team cosy. From charity or club snoods, to professional looking designs for company use, squad snoods incorporate your branding to help you get your name out there while staying warm this winter!

We’re proud to announce we are an official TEDxAberdeen 2022 partner!

This year’s event is taking place on 12th November at Aberdeen Arts Centre, and a fantastic group of speakers will be stepping on the famous red dot to deliver insightful talks centred around the theme of ‘movement’.

We are excited to be involved in helping bring this incredible event to Aberdeen!
