Christmas all wrapped up! Print Ideas this festive season

Christmas is coming . . . . and with only 64 days until the big day at time of writing, now is the perfect time to think about the festive season, with this in mind we wanted to share our print ideas, gift suggestions and wrapping solution ideas with you.  For sure this year has been strange and it is unlikely that we will be celebrating in the same way, but to thank valued clients is as important now more than ever.  

Christmas can certainly feel like it suddenly creeps up on you when you haven’t got your company Christmas cards, calendars or gifts organised.  Even if you think you are ordering in plenty of time, don’t forgot to allow for a bit extra to get cards and gifts packaged up and sent out.

Christmas Cards

Cards may be seen as super traditional however, they are a great way to stay in touch with your loyal customers over the festive season and a creative design can really help you stand out from the crowd.

You can also use them to not only spread some festive cheer but as a gentle nudge to see if there is any future business in the pipeline for 2020.

For the design you can keep it fun by including images of your employees in festive fancy dress or use cut outs and foil print finishes for a simple, chic effect.

The designers of this leaflet have been careful enough to make sure the design matches up over the folds too. This keeps the angular and dynamic nature of the leaflet while still giving a cohesive front cover.
