The elves are on their way

18th December 2018

This year we have created a range of Christmas customer give-aways - a personalised desk calendar, a wall planner and gift labels. Around a third of the A5 desk calendars have been uniquely personalised with customers' names inserted into the image. The remaining calendars were personalised with 'Warren' inserted into the image. In total some 1,500 calendars have been printed, the aim being to demonstrate the fantastic print qualities of the products we used.

The front cover of the A5 desktop tent card calendar was printed on an Indigo 12000 digital offset press using variable data software for personalisation. The calendar base was printed on a Heidelberg Speedmaster XL106-4. We produced the very same calendar a couple of years ago and we received so many calls asking if we were giving out calendars again, we felt we had to make sure they made a return for 2019! Not only are they a handy size to keep on a desk all year round but having images personalised with the customers’ name makes them a bit quirky too.

Back again due to popular demand we have created A2 year planners that have been printed on a Heidelberg Speedmaster 74 eight Colour, using Fuji Superia ZP Thermal Plates.

The Christmas gift labels were produced using a kiss-cut process on a self-adhesive laminate. The machine used to create the labels was a rotary die-cutting machine and in addition to being able to kiss-cut it can die-cut (cut all the way through the material) and waste strip material that is not self-adhesive. The construction of the machine and dies mean that it is impossible to overcut the material and the digital registration system on the machine ensures perfect register ever time.

Our army of elves are still out delivering these Christmas treats to customers and if you haven’t received yours over the next week - contact the Sales team on 116 232 4102 or email

Wishing all our customers a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
