The spooky season is very nearly upon us! For businesses, Halloween brings more than just trick or treaters, it brings a great opportunity to connect with your clients with some innovative and fun print marketing solutions.


At AB Print, we offer a number of print services that are perfect for 31st October, and with our quick turnaround times, it’s not too late to do these now! Here are just a few of our spook-tacular ideas to provide you with inspiration:

Glow in the dark

Why not take a look at what we can do with our glow in the dark inks – perfect for illuminating eye-catching Halloween cards or postcards.  Alternatively, if you are hosting a Halloween event at a bar or nightclub, using glow in the dark ink on your promotional materials or wristbands will add a special touch.

Trick Or Treat

Add a ‘Trick or Treat’ twist to standard scratch cards and offer your clients Halloween promotions, discounts and incentives.

Halloween Networking

Thought about hosting a Halloween themed networking event? This would be a great opportunity to create an event with a twist, adding a little more fun for clients and prospects than the more traditional networking experience. For this event, you can print branded decorations, place cards and invitations with a spooky but memorable finish.

Mysterious Menus

Why not create Halloween themed menus for your restaurant? This is a great way to attract customers and promote your restaurant by making the most of a popular day. If you’re feeling extra creative, why not use scratch and sniff printing to reveal some tasty scents!

Whatever your business, Halloween is a fantastic opportunity to try something different and keep your customers engaged. If you have a print idea, speak to our team today on 01924 473481 or email us at



Who’s the Boss?

Posted On September 27, 2019 By

We recently did some print work for Boss Consulting, a team of IT consultants that help companies implement new business management software. When we were initially approached by the company, they were looking for printing solutions for notepads and pens to distribute among employees, however this resulted in us producing a whole range of branded promotional goods! 

Boss consulting

Boss Consulting wanted a touch of luxury on their merchandise and so opted for an A5 imitation leather notepad, similar to a moleskine book, and classic ball point pens. We also provided power banks, to be used as portable chargers in case the team’s devices run low on battery. These were all printed with the company logo, making them a great addition to exhibition stands or to give as gifts to clients from sales teams. 

branded stationery  

As well as being a nice gesture, giving employees branded merchandise ensures branding is consistent across a business which provides a more professional look. This is why many businesses choose to use branded stationery, from business cards to diaries and ring binders.

With all our services under one roof, we can tailor your printed merchandise to however you wish, ensuring colour consistency throughout. We also provide a range of specialist finishes, including glow in the dark, heat sensitive printing, and scratch ‘n’ sniff printing to really make your brand stand out.

If you are looking to get branded stationery for your business, feel free to call our team today on 01924 473481 or email us at




Creative Finishes for the Festive Period

Posted On September 19, 2019 By

Here at AB Print Group, we can print everything you could ever imagine, and what better time to get creative with your print advertising than the festive period?

There are many different ways in which you and your business could benefit from the services we provide and, in this blog, we’re going to talk through our favourite Christmassy effects that businesses up and down the UK should consider.

Glitter ink

When thinking about Christmas, one of the first things that comes to mind is all the tinsel and sparkly decorations that go around the tree. Well, why not make the most of the hype around all the glitter and send out some shimmering cards or calendars?




Fragranced inks

scratch and sniff

Nothing throws you back to good times more than a nostalgic smell, which evokes a whole range of emotional responses. There is no time of the year that produces more warm, loving smells than the Christmas period, whether that be roasted chestnuts, gingerbread, mulled wine or an open fire.

Get creative! This particular type of specialist print finish has sparked some fantastic ideas and there’s no reason yours can’t be amazing too.



Chill & reveal

chill and reveal

There isn’t a specialist print finish that is better suited to the winter months than the chill & reveal – the way it works speaks for itself. This effect can be added to certain areas of your print so that when the temperature drops, an area will be revealed.

It’s up to you what you reveal, it may be a festive greeting or an important message, whatever the idea, we think you’ll love it!
