Posted On March 19, 2021 By

We have been working closely with a fantastic local up-and-coming coach operator, Blue Sky Coaches, supplying them with uniforms, stationery, brochures and everything they need to make a thriving business.

Now that we can see a light at the end of the COVID tunnel, Blue Sky Coaches are getting more and more enquiries from people asking when their day trips and holidays will be starting, so they got in touch with AB Print to see what we could do to help protect their passengers and their staff.

They now have a 2021 Day Trip Brochure that is fully coated with an Anti-Bacterial sealer and the handles on the coaches are covered with an Anti-Bacterial laminate, both killing 99.9% of bacteria. The drivers also now have branded face masks to wear and the coach seats are set up social distancing with PVC signs that can be disinfected with a simple wipe down.

All helping to keep their passengers happy, safe and in the knowledge that Blue Sky Coaches are at the forefront of COVID safety when it comes to Coach travel.

Blue Sky Coaches said:

“Thank you AB Print Group for your support getting us back onto the road, as we get ready for welcoming back our customers and for the safety products you have supplied, we are excited to be back on the road again, safe in the knowledge that you have helped us do everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our staff and passengers.”…

AB Print assist Yorkshire Cancer Research with fundraising efforts

Posted On December 10, 2020 By

Keen to help charities wherever possible, AB Print were thrilled when approached to help a local fundraising group who were hoping to raise vital funds for the region’s independent cancer charity. 

Huddersfield Volunteer Group create recipe book for Charity

The Huddersfield based Volunteer Group had previously seen great success with their first publication of ‘That was Delicious’, but with it having been thirty years since that release, they thought it the perfect time to create a brand-new book.

AB Print were asked to produce this new recipe book, which is a follow-on from the first book, called ‘That was Delicious – a Second Helping!’. The book is filled with over 50 recipes from all the volunteers, their families and their friends. The group were looking for a company who could create quality which would be second-to-none, therefore highlighting the illustrations by Linda Downs, a Kirkburton based artist.  

When asked what prompted the release of the second cookbook, Jane Dutton, Chairman of the Huddersfield Volunteer Group said, “It was always our intention to produce a second recipe book, but it took the weeks and months of lockdown to spur us into action.

We are delighted to launch ‘That was Delicious – a Second Helping!’ and all money raised from the sale of our books will help to improve the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer right across Yorkshire.”

If you know someone who is a keen cook or baker, that would love to get their hands on some family recipes, you can buy a copy of the book here on the Yorkshire Cancer Research website. Dependant on COVID restrictions, you may also be able to grab a copy at the charity shops in Knaresborough, Northallerton and Tadcaster. Alternatively, you can order a book directly from the volunteer group at 01423 501 269.…

AB Print work with the Air Ambulance Service

Posted On December 10, 2020 By

After having seen the success that AB Print have had with Christmas printing services in the past, we were delighted when The Air Ambulance Service approached us for assistance on their 2020 Christmas Campaign.

 

The Air Ambulance Service were in need of Advent posters, which would be used to advertise their shops were (hopefully) soon to be open for business! Having designs at the ready and with sign off from their team, we went into production with the posters as soon as the news broke that shops could reopen on 2nd  December.   

During production, we printed A1 posters, A3 and A5 strut boards, all with silver latex over the message for added effect and also printed the all-important number on top of the latex too. On the long-awaited day, Wednesday 2nd, each charity shop had its own package delivered to them, ready and festive for the re-opening.

Throughout the process, AB Print worked with Abby Davies, who is the Brand Manager of the Air Ambulance Service. When receiving a package herself, Abby got in touch to say, “It looks brilliant, I’m so impressed with how they’ve turned out – so thank you so much!”.

If you’re looking for some Christmas cards or stocking fillers this year, and would like to donate to this worthwhile cause at the same time, you can browse their online shop here.…
