Introducing our new Wedding Collection

Monday, 25 September 2017 11:57:56 Europe/London

Eco-friendly wedding stationeryOur new Wedding Collection has been unveiled (excuse the pun) and we are delighted to offer an enticing range of wedding orientated printing – from invitations all the way through to printing for the reception and even wedding favours. 

With our focus on delivering a range of fully eco-friendly wedding stationery  we have also pushed the boat out with a selection of luxury printed items on carefully chosen materials.

Like a matching hat and outfit we give you the option to carry your wedding theme all the way from the initial Save the Date to the after event Thank-you cards. Or you can ring the changes and go totally off piste for your reception with a different style and flavour, for this is the time that you can really let your hair down!

Tuesday, 3 January 2017 16:23:08 Europe/London

Notebook printing waiting for finishingAs we enter 2017 we thought it would be fun to have a look back at 2016 and find out what are the favourite products we printed, as picked by a cross reference of each department. After all, they are the ones that see every item that passes through our factory and have hands on experience with all of them. Have a scroll down to see which items were Top of the Pops as far as we are concerned. Perhaps they are your favourites as well.

10 Years On - The ALP Logo Evolves

10 Years On - The ALP Logo Evolves

At A Local Printer we are often involved in creating and refreshing brand identities for our clients, but something that we have only toyed with when it came to our own! With February 2016 marking the ten year anniversary of the launch of our website it was the ideal time to take a long hard look at our own brand and re-evaluate it in terms of where we are now. 
 
We are still an eco printer first and foremost, but have diversified our services to include more design and marketing, product development and fulfilment to deliver an end to end service to our customers.
 
It was important to us that our new brand remained recognisable which is why the font used for our name has remained the same. The addition of a new full colour logo that has a similar shape to our original Mobius loop style was also a key consideration. The addition of lots of colour reflects the fact that we are a colour printer, whilst the circular shape indicates an encompassing service and still retains a nod to the Mobius loop through the style of the connected links.
 
We hope that you like the new branding and please feel free to add your feedback by commenting!
