Are You Ready For Winter?

Year on year the UK weather constantly changes, with unpredictable snowfall and rainfall it’s important to be ready no matter what the weather. For businesses it’s important to have your staff prepared for what’s to come, whether they be office based on field based, when the winter weather arrives no one wants to feel the cold.

Staff and Winter Weather

Winter is one time of year where sickness is at it’s highest in workplaces, usually due to things such as colds and flus or simply needing time off because of the bad weather.. With a few simple tweeks to your company uniform you could massively reduce time off in the winter, staff working outside without the appropriate attire are more at risk of falling ill, even staff who work in offices feel the cold.

At Crystal Print we believe that having the appropriate work clothing can help to combat time off and can also help to protect your staff in the harsher winter conditions. From simple changes to staff uniforms and including appropriate winter wear such as hoodies, sweatshirts, jackets, fleeces and hats can help to combat the effects of winter. With the right printing and embroidery your staff uniforms can be easily incorporated into your business branding; meaning your new uniform will still be in keeping with what you already have.

Items That Can Be Printed Or Embroidered

At Crystal Print we offer a range of appropriate attire to help combat the winter weather.

Hoodies and Sweatshirts

Perfect for use for both indoor and outdoor work, hoodies can help to keep your staff warm while still looking smart and matching the company branding. Hoodies and sweatshirts can be easily removed, so when you have a nicer day or the heating on full blast in the office, there’s no need to wear it but the options always there when your staff need it.

Jackets and Fleeces

Aimed more for people working outdoors, jackets and fleeces can provide the warmth and protection needed when the harsh winter weather attacks. With the ability to have them printed on or embroidered on your staff will not only feel better when wearing them outdoors but they’ll look great and match the company with colours and info that suit.


When it comes to working outdoors you wouldn’t believe the difference a hat makes, tradition says that when your feet and head are warm the rest of you is warm. By providing customised headwear such as wooly hats, you keep them safe and warm when their working outdoors.


The great thing about workwear clothing is that it can all be personalised, so when your staff are out and about in the local area or working on jobs then they can be branded to match your company. Printed and embroidered clothing provides a great free way to advertise while keeping your staff warm in the harsh winter weather and also helping to reduce the amount of sick days they may need to take. By providing the appropriate winter clothing your staff are less likely to fall ill with things such as the common cold.

When it comes to kitting out your staff in the winter workwear clothing, look no further than Crystal Print. We offer clothing appropriate for the winter weather that can be customised with printing or embroidery; we only use the best quality material clothing items and ensure all work is carried out to a high standard. For a chat about our clothing printing and embroidery, give the team at Crystal Print a call on 01277 650661.

How To Ensure Complete Leaflet Success

Here at Crystal Print, we’ve been operating as expert leaflet printers for many years now, which means we have been able to pinpoint some of the key ways to achieve success when you’re marketing your brand, products and services with leaflets. As experienced printers, I think it’s fair to say that we’ve seen a lot of leaflets over the years, which allows you to rest easy with the knowledge that we know what we’re talking about. So, let’s get into it. Here are the steps to ensure complete leaflet success.

Use A Time Bound Offer

One of the best ways to ensure success when marketing your business with leaflets is to use a time bound offer. Utilising a time bound offer will help to draw people into your business, as they will need to use the offer before the time is up. For example. During the summer months, you could offer a discount until the summer ends, which is a surefire way to bring in customers to your business, in quite a short space of time. It’s important to remember to put an end date on your offer, however. This is because, if you forget, people can utilise the offer whenever they like, which could cause major problems for your business and may lead to you losing money. Here at Crystal Print, we strive to help your business increase its outreach and want you to make money off of the back of our printed leaflets, which is why we’ll help you in any way we can.

Logo Placement

The placement of your logo is one of the most important things to consider when using leaflets to market your business. Many companies just put their logo at the top and forget about it, but Crystal Print know different. In fact, the best place to put your logo is close to the bottom of your leaflet. If your leaflet is printed to a high standard, which ours are guaranteed to be, customers will want to keep reading it. This will enable people who are genuinely interested in your services to find your logo and information, which is a lot better than just thrusting it into a customer's face before they even start to read your leaflet. Is your logo a tad outdated? Well, putting it at the top of your leaflet can be quite off-putting to potential customers.

Aesthetically Pleasing Images

Having aesthetically pleasing images is one of the easiest way to catch a customer’s attention. Are you displaying leaflets in a rack? If so, people walking past your shop or the rack itself will notice the high quality, striking images on your leaflet and may possibly be persuaded to pick it up and read more information on your business and the services you offer. In short, high quality images allows potential customers to find out just what your business is about, as soon as they lay eyes on your leaflet.

Use The Back

At Crystal Print, we believe that leaflets should not just be one sided, it’s important to utilise the space on the back as much as you can. Have you used a time bound offer? Well, this is the perfect place to expand on that! Using the back of a leaflet can help grasp the attention of potential customers, as no matter which side they pick the leaflet up, they have something to look at and read. If you’re looking to expand on the services you offer, using the space on the back can act as another full leaflet. Utilising the back space effectively can help to persuade the reader to keep your leaflet and use it whenever they are in need of your services.

Short Headers

When creating a new leaflet, it’s highly important to write your headline as if you’re writing a newspaper article. A short and clear header can help entice people into reading your leaflet. This is because, when people are going about their day to day business, they want information quickly. Catching the eye of potential customers when marketing your products and services is vital, which is why short and snappy headlines are perfect when looking to ensure complete leaflet success.

How Signage Can Be Beneficial To Your Business

Regardless of whether you have just started a new business or you have been operating for a few years, signage is massively important. At Crystal Print, we have been offering our signage services to our clients for many years now, which means we are experts at what we do. It also means that we have been able to notice a few benefits that properly utilised signage can bring to a business, which is why we have decided to outline a few of the key benefits in this blog. No matter if you’re a new business, an established one looking to rebrand or even if you’re simply looking to improve the visibility of your business, signage should be a crucial part of your marketing strategy. Signage can help to make an impact on your intended audience and can create a very strong visual brand, which makes your target market aware that you are operating and are more than willing to offer them your services.

The Benefits Of High Quality Signage

At Crystal Print, we know that high quality signage can hugely benefit any business, if utilised properly. Good signage can be beneficial to your business in a number of different ways, including:

Improved Brand Awareness

Your customers are more likely to buy from a business they have heard of, rather than one they haven’t heard of. This is why maximising your brand awareness is one of the most important things to do when marketing your business, and signage can be one of the best ways to do just that. Eye catching signage can help to advertise your business to people who, over time, may become customers. It also helps to expose your business to already existing customers, which cements the fact that you’re a business who know what you’re doing. Brand awareness should be one of the first things that you try to maximise as a business, which is why we offer our simply magnificent signage services to all of our customers, here at Crystal Print.


Differentiate From Your Competitors

If you feel that your business is ‘just part of the crowd’ in your industry, signage can be hugely beneficial to you as a marketing technique. Good, high quality signage helps to differentiate you from your competition and build a simply unique brand. The more unique and distinctive your signage is, the more you will stand out and the more chance you have of generating new customers. Standing out is one of the most important things a company can do as it can help to generate you revenue on a massive scale, through building your customer base.

Improves Functionality

Now, we know that signage has a promotional purpose to any business who is looking to market their brand and their services, but signage helps in a functional role, too. If utilised correctly, signage can help to direct people to your business and products, as well as helping to inform them when you are having a sale or promotion. Due to the functionality of signage, it helps to raise awareness of your marketing activities as well as improving the experience you give to your customers, when providing them with your products or services.

Cost Effective Marketing

Are you trying to advertise your business on a budget? If so, high quality signage from Crystal Print is absolutely perfect for you. We offer truly cost effective prices on all of our signage products and services, which allows you to advertise your business and services effectively, whilst not going over your budgeted allowance. If there is one way to advertise your business as best you can whilst saving money, signage is it. Help your business to generate customers, which in turn generates revenue, by using our amazing signage services.

London Marathon 2016

With the London Marathon fast approaching, now is the time to get your outfit sorted. Yes, a marathon isn’t a cat walk or a red carpet event, but having your very own T Shirt printed for just £9.95 will help you on your way.

Set to take place on 24th April 2016, the gruelling 26.2 mile race helps raise thousands of pounds for charities around the world every year. With more than 120,000 applications for this year's marathon, it’s important that you arrive in style with your very own personalised top.

The London Marathon is an important event for everyone up and down the country, as most runners take part for charity to raise money for good causes. Whether you are completing the marathon for a popular or local charity, Crystal Print will be with you every step of the way (literally).

All for a great cause

This year’s charity of the year is the NSPCC. On the 30th year anniversary from ChildLine first starting up, this charity is a great cause and helps many children and families stay in a safe and protective environment. The London Marathon are attempting to raise £2.3 million to help every child in need and of course, Crystal Print are totally behind this. So for every step, mile and road you run down, you’re not just doing it for yourself, but many children, families, adults and organisations will benefit from all pennies raised too.

5 Reasons Printing is More Valuable Than Digital

The main question that gets passed around is “What is more valuable, printing or digital?”. There are of course two sides to every story, but the team at Crystal Print believe the answer of this question to be printing. With printing offering a wide range of opportunities and chances of advertising that digital could never offer, we believe printing to be the most successful form of promoting a business. We have pulled together 5 main reasons as to why printing is more valuable than digital and hope that you seem the same too.

1. Judgement

The appearance of your advertising is key, although digital marketing may wow you at a first glance, printed materials can come to a HD print with a more familiar and friendly feel to the way you advertise. If the advertisement looks too good to be true, it most probably is so by sticking to what you know and choosing printing, you will receive a high quality finish you expect with no nasty surprises.

2. Reader Capability

Reader capability is one of the main reasons that we believe that printing is more valuable than digital. Studies have shown that people prefer to read something printed rather than something in a digital format, so it is of vital importance that you remember this when advertising your business, your services or your products. If your customers physically have something in front of them to read, it could potentially persuade them to invest in your services.

3. Engagement to Customer

Studies show that printing is far more user friendly that digital, meaning the amount of time people spent reader a printed advertisement is far longer than reading digitally. If you are looking to move forward with your business’s advertising, printed documents offer the perfect solution. Not only is your reader able to hold the printing for themselves, they can choose when they want to read the document, whereas digitally they may see it once and never again.

4. Emotional Stimulation

Are you aware that printed materials appear to stimulate people’s emotions more than material in a digital format? The study that found this used biometric analysis of various different people’s emotional responses to both printed and digital material, and found that every signal of emotional engagement, such as sweat production, heart rate and the amount of body movement, were all higher with print than with digital. This just further proves that printing is more valuable than digital, because if you can generate emotional engagement with your products, the customers are a lot more likely to contact you and use your services.

5. Trustworthiness

Paper advertising feels much more trustworthy than what you see online, as you never know who or what you can believe. Digital marketing has to be done very carefully in order to show that they are a trusted business, but with printed paper you can make the judgement for yourself as you don’t have to worry about the online world of scams. All in all, printed advertising provides a much more higher chance of sales due to the fact that customers read the document for longer and at a time that they choose.

How Using Leaflets Will Increase Brand Awareness

Leaflets may look small, but they can have incredible benefits on a business. If you are in search of a cost friendly, effective form of advertising that will increase brand awareness, leaflets are by far the perfect choice. We believe that leaflets have many benefits and plus points, so much so the list is almost endless! However, in terms of increasing brand awareness you will be amazed at just how much something as simple as a leaflet has to offer. The team at Crystal Print have put our heads together to come up with the top five reasons why leaflets will help with your businesses brand awareness. We hope that they are of use to your business and you see a true improvement on your business’s customer base, profits and brand awareness.

1. Tangible

With leaflets offering a print that is there to hold and read at a time that suits the reader, it is more likely that it will result in a sale and increase brand awareness. This is due to the fact that the reader will feel no pressure into taking in the information or being interested in what is in the leaflet. By having a printed leaflet that can be touched and read through at the customer's convenience this will give the reader a relaxed and laid back approach to your services or products. Realistically, this gives you a much higher chance of moving forward to a sale and also increasing your brand awareness.

2. Affordable

Available to buy in mass amounts, having bulk leaflets printed gives you a cost friendly solution to increasing brand awareness. By having a affordable form of printing, it means you target and reach out to more people now that your branding strategy is cheaper. Here at Crystal Print our leaflet printing is available in bulk orders, giving you an amazing opportunity to save big and hit a large customer base! This will in fact increase your brand awareness more than you may realise as you are able to have more leaflets printed at a cost effective price, and therefore send out more leaflets to a larger proportion of customers.

3. Target Who You Choose

Printed advertising puts you in control of who you target, this allows you to determine where, who and when you hand out your leaflets. This will give you free reign into increasing your business and will only make your business better than it already is! You will be able to do many things with your leaflets including:
  • Hand them out in towns to passers-by
  • Leave them in shops for people to pick up on their own accord
  • Post them to houses and businesses
  • Have them inserted in local magazines and newspapers
  • Place inside packaged orders
  • Hand them out at events and exhibitions

4. Personal

If you are looking for a printed material that will not only give your customer a personal experience, but can kick start a customer relationship, leaflets are the perfect way to do this. They allow you to not only meet your potential customers face to face whilst handing out your leaflets, you can also leave a personal touch by having a box to insert their name or business. If you are interested in being totally individual with each print, you could even have their business name printed on which could be the difference in having or not having a sale. For printing material that will not only help with customer relationships but brand awareness to, Crystal Print believe that leaflets are the perfect solution.

5. Long Lasting

Your leaflet could find itself on a customer's’ fridge, draw or worktop until your services come in handy. For example, if you offer T - Shirt printing, the leaflet could be saved until they require this kind of printing. Not only are they long lasting in the sense that they can be kept, they can leave ever lasting memories for a customer if they always have your business remembered when seeking a T - Shirt printer. This will then in fact, grow your brand awareness as they know they can always count on your business, know where to find you and can even suggest your services to their friends, family or other business owners. Leaflets most definitely offer long lasting effects for not only your business’s customer base, but brand awareness too, so waste no time in having yours printed with Crystal Print today.
If you are in search of a cost friendly solution to increasing your business’s brand awareness, leaflet printing is the way forward. Having worked in the printing industry for many years, Crystal Print know that there is an array of benefits that come with leaflet printing and believe them to be extremely beneficial for any business. Make the most of your business and increase your brand awareness and choose Crystal Print for your leaflet printing today. We know you won’t be disappointed with our high quality leaflet printing, so get in touch with our team and we will cater to your every need!

We have put together a few of the ways which improving your advertising will help your business and hope they are of use to you.

5 Effective Ways to Advertise Your Business

Printed advertisements offer a brilliant way for your business to get the message out there that you exist and the type of services you offer. The list on advertising is close to endless, but Crystal Print have chosen five of our favourite advertising strategies. We hope that they are useful and help with your business’s advertising this year. Our top five advertising materials are:
  1. Signage - There are a number of ways you can use signage to advertise your company. Crystal Print have found that vehicle signage is one of the most popular choices. Having advertisement material like vehicle wraps gives you  a 24/7 marketing campaign. Wherever you go, people will see your company name, logo and contact information emblazoned on your vehicle, leaving a lasting impression on anyone who sees you.
  2. Clothing Printing & Embroidery - A good way to get your business’s branding out there is to implement a uniform into your workplace. This will help to generate brand awareness for your business and even out of work hours you are still advertising.
  3. Business Cards - Business Cards are a brilliant idea for any business. They can come in handy at any time, unexpected or intentional by handing out your business card you are giving out a port of contact to a potential customer. Whether it be at a meeting, event, in the street or by post you can send your business’s contact details out in a small but useful fashion. Including your company name, logo and contact information, your business card can be stored or used immediately at a time that suits the client.
  4. Leaflets - Leaflets can be very effective at advertising your business, if they are utilised in the right way. They can be used in a number of ways, by post to advertise your latest offers or at a business event to showcase your company’s services. Leaflets can come in useful for both expectant and unexpected customers, so whether you intentionally hand them out to people in the street or by off chance send them in a newspaper or post, they can generate sales.
  5. Brochures - Brochures are a really good way of advertising and promoting yourself to other companies and your client base. If you have an office, you can keep brochures by the door so if clients are waiting to be seen they can have a read through and find out more about your company and the services you provide. They can also be posted through people's doors so they can give them a read and find out more about your business and how you can help them in their time of need.

Revamp Your Advertising

Refurbishing your advertising and coming up with new and exciting ways to showcase your business is a great way to improve your advertising material. If you already have existing advertising products such as: brochures, leaflets, business cards, or billboards then, it could be advisable to improve them with a revamp to keep them up to date and eye catching for customers. For example, if you have a poster which is worn down and out of date, we at Crystal Print know that people will often overlook unappealing and dull. Make the most of what your business has to offer and showcase yourself in the best light and choose Crystal Print today for all your printing needs! We will help with all areas of your printed advertising to ensure both existing and potential customers are amazed at your products and services.
