New Year, New You


It’s that time of year when people are looking for a brand new fresh start. And from a business perspective that can mean a whole lot of things. Rebranding, reinvention, redesigns and more.

You may have begun to think about events that you might want to attend and offers that you want to run.

You may be reviewing the schedule of business priorities to assess what needs your full attention and what can wait for a while.

Whatever you are thinking about, it is always a good time in January to ponder about having a refresh, blowing away the cobwebs and really asking yourself where you want you and your business to be in a year’s time.

It’s always handy to look back at the last year’s promotions and see what has worked and what hasn’t. You may have figures to show whether certain products or services and promotions actually worked. If they did, could you revamp them and run them again. We see a lot of clients using the best of the ideas that worked for them the year before. With a simple redesign they can roll out a campaign quickly and effectively without much stress.

If you have budget restraints then it’s always good to think about how you can best spend your money to get the best out of what you have. Often, that can be determined by who your customer is. For example if they are a really local clientele, then you might be best going for new brochures, flyers and advertisements that will reach the local community in the most direct and personable way possible.

This is certainly something we can help with at Heaton Press, Stockport.

You may already have decided that you want something more online that people can get to via their mobiles. And you can use your print budget to look at updating your business cards or producing some key point of sale material for the next exhibition, conference, or store front.

If you are thinking about doing something new for the new year, browse the Heaton Press site now for our latest offers and inspiration. Our friendly team are always on hand to help.

Christmas Cards: A Tradition Businesses Can Love


Now the orders are streaming in from business clients to get their Christmas cards on order and sent out, we can’t think of much more than Christmas some days.

So, it’s interesting to think about how long the tradition of the Christmas card has actually been going, and why it’s such a fantastic one to keep up.

This is what we know:

It was way back in 1843 that the tradition of sending Christmas cards began. A man called Sir Henry Cole and his artist friend John Horsley designed the first card. And it showed the heart of Christmas spirit with images of caring for the poor as well as a huge Christmas Dinner in the middle.

There was a time when only the rich could send post. But as transport expanded and the train network began to be built they became more and more popular.

And then printing technology allowed more and more cards to be produced in large numbers meaning the cost was reduced and everyone was allowed to send cards.

By the early 1900s sending Christmas cards was common place across Europe.

The main visuals centring around the nativity. Although in late Victorian times there were plenty of robins and snow scenes.

Some interesting Christmas card facts:

  • 45% of all cards sent in the UK are Christmas cards.
  • 2 billion Christmas cards were sent in the US compared to 900 million in the UK in 2017.
  • The most cards sent by one person in a year is 62, 824 – nearly enough to cover a football pitch.

Christmas Card Do’s and Dont’s


The question is, should you send company Christmas cards to clients and customers?

And the answer is absolutely yes!

It’s tradition and it’s a way to let your customers know that you are in it for the long term. But when it comes to best practice, here are a few handy tips:

Send high quality cards

Quality shows and the quality of the Christmas card reflects on the sender. Sending cheap Christmas cards will make you look cheap. Buy the best Christmas cards you can afford.

Don’t send handmade cards

Unless that’s what you do for a living.

Be tasteful

It’s easy to go for something funny, but it’s not always going to make a good impression.

Don’t forget religion

Or rather be aware if your clients aren’t religious at all. Best to go for something generic.

Make it personal

You don’t just want to put a signature in there. Think about something with a little more personality, like ‘Hope you have a fantastic year.’ And think about handwriting the message.

Use a company stamp

It’s an easy way to get your company information below your signature. Or just include a business card and print the name of the business somewhere on the
card so it’s visible.

Don’t use computer labels

Best to handwrite the card if you can.

Use titles

Mr, Mrs, Dr should all be included.

Send to the business address

You should definitely keep it formal in that they receive the card through work.

Be on Time

There’s no point getting Christmas cards in late. It defeats the object of seasonal cheer. So if you’re searching for business Christmas cards in Manchester this Winter, contact our team at Heaton Press for more information on Christmas Cards.
