Catalogue/Brochure Design & Print

Product Range Brochure, Design & Print for Streetscape

We were briefed with designing and producing an 108 page catalogue for Streetscape.

Due to the amount of products Streetscape offer, simplicity was a key factor in the design. It had to be bright and bold whilst remaining easy to navigate. Customers need to be able to browse the catalogue and find the items they require with quickness and ease, but at the same time, find it interesting enough to make them flick through the rest of the catalogue. The products and codes for each item needed to be clearly visible.

Streetscape – a family company designing, manufacturing and installing outdoor play facilities with over 35 years experience in the play industry.

“We offer a wide range of outdoor playground equipment in both Timber and Steel with our expertise extending to outdoor fitness equipment, multi-use games areas and safety surfacing, as well as ancillary items such as outdoor furniture and fencing.

Supplying to local authorities, architects, schools, builders, holiday and leisure parks and the community, we have a range
of products to cater for all ages and settings. We work closely with all of our customers to ensure that all requirements are completed and the finished scheme meets your exact specifications. All of our play equipment is designed, manufactured and installed to meet European Safety Standards BS EN 1176.

Our range of fitness equipment is manufactured to the recommendations of EN16630 and has been individually tested to the TUV Standard (55012A:2010). Used in the market since 2004, since that date over 50000 pieces have been supplied on more than 10000 sites in over 50 countries on 5 different continents.”


York’s Office Outlet closed.

Written by York Print Company on 30/05/2019

It’s sad to see it go as the print center offered a lot of late and weekend opening hours for those urgent print jobs. After having a chat with the powers that be and lots of enquiries as to where we are in relation to the store, I have installed signage to let Office Outlet customers know we are close by and that we can take care of their design and print needs. We just happen to be no more than 5 minutes away from the old Foss Island store. We even have new opening times on a Saturday to cover the weekend work (not open 10 till 2 pm Saturdays).

York Print Company cover all the things Office Outlet offered and a few more besides, the only thing we don’t offer is photocopying, but we are looking into having a pay as you go machine if there is enough call for it.

We have already had quite a few favourable comments and I’m sure we can do a great job for you.


Toyah at Femmes Fatales Logo Design

Written by York Print Company on 17/07/2018

Branding and logo design

We recently received a brief asking us to take all of Shhhh Hair & Beauty’s literature and re-brand it to Toyah at Femmes Fatales, due to shop closure.

When collecting information to use in the research/concept stage of the branding and the logo design, we focused on Toyah. Her personality, favourite colours, styles etc. making use of her favourite flower, the peony rose to give a soft, feminine edge to the harsh straight lines of black and white.

Femmes Fatales Hairdressing & Beauty already exists and therefore we had to keep their name in the font/style they already use.

The finished design is bold, bright and simplistic whilst still being feminine.


Logo Design

Written by York Print Company on 09/05/2018

Logo design is everywhere.

I look around me now, and I can easily count up at least 10 different logos without much effort… they are scattered around us everywhere we go, are embedded in our culture and way of life. They influence our decisions, communicate and represent a company’s values, and are often full of meaning…

Logo design is the first priority when starting a new business – Logos are symbols made up of text and images that help us identify brands.  A good logo is the cornerstone of your brand. It helps customers understand what you do and who you are. The primary role of a logo is to identify… Remember this, as it trumps all other advice you’ll ever hear. Identification is what really matters. That’s a lot of responsibility for a tiny image!

Logos also leave a visual impact this reminds your customers that, well… that you exist! In other words, an effective logo can create strong visual associations with your business. This association helps customers keep your brand in mind.

Think about brands like Nike or McDonalds, whose logos are so ubiquitous that they can be recognized instantly with or without the name present. It’s no surprise that logos are such a central part of brand identity.

Pop-Up/Roller Banners

Great for Exhibitions, In-House Signage and Advertising.

Pop-up/roller banners are the perfect portable solution for a business that needs to showcase their brand on the move. They are also perfect to be a permanent display in a public space. They are one of our favourite display solutions because you can assemble them easily and transport them in the lightweight case that it comes in.

Pop-up/roller banners are a great tool for anyone looking to boost their promotional efforts. They make a great addition to any exhibition or trade show booth space.

You can either supply your own artwork or you can work with our graphic design team to ensure the graphics for your retractable banner are designed with high impact and to the correct size for print.

Graphic Design for Large Format Digital Advertising Screens

Written by York Print Company on 09/03/2017

“I was in gridlock traffic stuck in Newcastle in the pouring rain when I looked up at this massive advertisement screen 4 lanes wide. I saw the name FORREST MEDIA on the side & rang them up. Unbelievably, they put me through to the MD, I emailed him a pdf of my book & hit it off with him straight away.  “Let’s do this. It’s a great idea!” Marc said.

The campaign links in ideas from the book DEAR DEMENTIA: the laughter & the tears & the work in Wellburn Care Homes.

The soundbites on the screens give a different view of those living with dementia.”

Ian Donaghy – author of Dear Dementia

After getting the go-ahead to use the screens for his campaign, we were approached by Ian Donaghy. He was in need of Graphic Design for Large Format Digital Roadside Advertising Screens. They had to be simple, clean and bold so that the key messages came across instantly.

As you can see, they were a great success!

YorkshireRoofing

Logo Design for Yorkshire Roofing Solutions Ltd.

We were recently briefed to a logo design for Yorkshire Roofing Solutions Ltd.  They were wanting to focus on the eco/green side on their business i.e grass roofs. They also wanted to incorporate the fact that they cover every type of roofing from arched to flat roofs.

We initially did 5 concepts. Working up the chosen route into full colour. Once the client was happy with the logo they were then supplied the logo in various file formats. So that they can use their logo for all purposes, from printing to web uploads.
