Uses for Branded Merchandise and Stationery

November 19, 2018 11:28 am Published by Leave your thoughts

Branded stationery can come in the form of more than just pencils and pens.

From quirky paperweights to professional business cards, they have their uses inside and outside of the office. Through our decades of providing lithographic, digital and screen-printing services for clients throughout Wakefield and West Yorkshire, AB Print have provided some handy uses of branded stationery for businesses. 

Event Promotion:

Got an important exhibition, conference or event coming up? Branded stationery are great freebies to hand to your prospective clients and visitors who may be passing your stalls. Opportunities to use specialist print materials such as glow in the dark business cards or scratch and sniff flyers could also help you stand out amongst other exhibitors.

Sponsorship and Partnerships:

Working together with other local businesses in Yorkshire provides an invaluable opportunity to publicise your partnership through commercial materials such as a leaflet holder or desk tidy. Merchandise such as mouse mats and mugs are great for placing your company name alongside a sister company, charity, or subsidiary. Again, these can be handed out at exhibitions or maybe you could just save them for your favourite clients.

Adding Personality to the Workplace:

Offices are usually littered with stationery and random merchandise. Business card holders, biscuit tins, laptop bags and more. Commercial printing offers so many options that can bring personality and vibrancy to these products.

Perhaps you are a start-up business and want an embossed logo on your leather laptop cases to add professionalism. Or you are well established and want to bring organisation to your notepads through company branding.

Whether promoting an event, spreading a public partnership, or giving your workplace a voice, branded stationery can be a subtle way of achieving this.

As mentioned, AB provide various types of printing to clients throughout Yorkshire. To stay up to date with us, you can follow us on Twitter. Alternatively, for any enquiries, make sure you get them in soon before the Christmas and New Year rush. Call 01924 473481 or drop us an email at: enquiries@abprintgroup.com.…


Pudsey 10K Run Results!

June 19, 2018 1:15 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

Last weekend was the Pudsey 10k charity run and a few of the team members here at AB Print are suffering from it now!

The charity event was held in aid of Marie Curie and Getaway Girls. You may recall an article we published in April about our involvement with the event – designing and printing the colourful leaflets used to spread awareness of this fantastic event. However, printing leaflets was not the only way in which our team got involved.

Three members of our team – Paul, Ian and James, undertook the challenge of running 10k to raise awareness for the charities Marie Curie and Getaway Girls, both of which help those in vulnerable places and stages in their lives.

Marie Curie is a well-established charity which provides hospice and nursing care to those with terminal illnesses.

Getaway Girls are a local charity who work with vulnerable young women to give them confidence and help them empower their lives. 

We’re always eager to participate in charitable events, as we truly believe in giving back and showing appreciation to our clients and our community. Our clients are the reason we continue to thrive as a company, meaning that we wouldn’t be here without them.

All the team here at AB Print are extremely proud of Paul, Ian and James who not only ran, but ran very well! Running a 10k is a fantastic achievement for anybody, but to hit it in the times mentioned below, and to do so while supporting such worthwhile causes, makes it extra special to us.   

To find out more about the Pudsey 10k, or how AB Print can help support your charity, give us a call today on 01924 473481.…


AB Print work with SF Leisure for Premium vodka brand

September 20, 2017 1:48 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

At AB Print we work with many exciting and high-profile clients with the aim of bringing their brands to life, and our latest project was no different. Working with SF Leisure, the UK’s leading supplier of night time and corporate event entertainment, we had the opportunity to create beautiful design and print work for the premium vodka brand, Cîroc.

Working with SF Leisure throughout the entire design process, beginning with concepts and ideas all the way through to the completed project, meant that this was an exciting project involving a lot of time and detail to ensure that this unique event, which took place last month, represented the Cîroc brand.

When it came to creating the entrance to the event, we produced a stencil to reflect the Cîroc branding which we used to create the white and blue carpet walkway. Alongside the walkway, we also helped shape and print the Cîroc wording and logos onto the burners. It was important to create an eye catching and stylish entrance finished to a high quality which we believe we successfully achieved alongside the team at SF Leisure.

Inside the event, one of the central features was the extravagant glitter ball. This was a unique concept which we designed and created, starting with cutting out the materials and inserting lights into the inside of the ball, as well as printing the curved panel inside the ball promoting the Cîroc brand. This was cleverly made to display the Cîroc vodka bottles, glasses, and ice, which added a special touch.

The inside of the venue was also lit up beautifully, and another unique feature which contributed to this were the Cîroc logo projections on the walls. These were also made by ourselves by CAD cutting a 25mm Perspex disc before printing the wording on to be used by the projector.

Finally, for behind the scenes storage, we printed the Cîroc logo onto the carry cases using CAD Cut Vinyl Printing, leaving a high quality and clean looking design alongside the consistent branding throughout the event.
