Written by York Print Company on 24/02/2016

webceteraLogo Design for Webcetera.

We were recently briefed to design a logo for Webcetera. They had already chosen colours that they preferred and we were asked to keep that in mind.  They also wanted a logo that had an icon within it, that could be used as a stand alone.

Webcetera – is a website development & website management company. Helping other companies with their website, making it work better for them, be it a brand new website, a migration of an existing website onto a new CMS/platform, managing an existing website ‘as is’, SEO and so on.
A key element is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) which they’re experienced in. Keyword research and strategy, content development, analysing results, reporting… The aim here is to help customer websites be ‘found’ organically via web searches and offer advice on how to improve this.

We initially did 5 concepts. Working up the chosen route into full colour. Once the client was happy with the logo they were then given the logo in various format files, so that they can use their logo for all purposes, from printing to web uploads. It is now up and running on their new website and it’s looking great!!

Christmas Card Printing

xmas_presenceFree Christmas Card Printing for Xmas Presence.

After seeing a post on Facebook and The York Press we decided to help Xmas Presence by printing their Christmas Cards/Invites free of charge.

Ian Donaghy announced his initial plans for Xmas Presence in The Press earlier this year, and says residents and companies have since responded brilliantly.

THE organiser of a huge Christmas charity event in York says he has been overwhelmed by the city’s generous response – but says more help is still possible.

The event, at Belfrey Hall in Stonegate, will provide a Christmas Day meal and celebration for more than 40 older York residents who live alone.

He said: “A team of friends, family and volunteers met at the venue on Monday evening to hatch a plan and social media has been buzzing with activity since with offers of making, baking and decorating.

“We are trying to capture the special feeling Christmas had as a child. We will be providing Christmas dinner and a light tea as well, and special hampers filled with homemade gifts, York’s finest produce and wonderful items will be given out to the guests.”

Mr Donaghy has worked closely with Age UK. He said: “We realise that there are other groups who could benefit but we can’t be all things to all men.”

He said the John Lewis “man on the moon” advert had captured the public’s imagination, but he said: “We’re not sending the bloke a telescope – we’re inviting him down for a party!”

apothPoster Printing for Apothecary 87

So that the posters were in-keeping with their core brand values, we were asked to print the posters on an uncoated paper. This gives a lovely natural feel.

Apothecary 87

At A87, we ask ourselves:

“What is a well groomed MAN?”

Well, we sat down and used our MAN brains until we came up with an answer. “A well groomed MAN is not merely a MAN who uses great products on his hair and body, but a MAN who can present himself in his own desired way, through all aspects of his lifestyle.”

So, with this in our MAN minds, we have taken measures to help our fellow MEN achieve this, with our Lifestyle range.

Are you ready to feel like the manliest man of all man time? Contact Apothecary 87 today to discuss our fabulous beard and moustache creams, oils and waxes –

Logo Design

Written by York Print Company on 17/02/2015


Logo Design

Following our £60 Logo Design Offer in January, we’ve had a busy few weeks! Not that we are complaining because we love the challenge that designing a logo brings.

To understand what a logo is, we must first understand what it is for.

A logo is for… identification.

A logo identifies a company or product via the use of a mark or symbol. A logo does not sell the company directly or describe a business. Logo’s derive their meaning from the quality of the thing it symbolises, not the other way around – logos are there to identity, not to explain. In a nutshell, what a logo means is more important than what it looks like.

It is also important to note that only after a logo becomes familiar, does it function the way it is intended to do much alike how we much must learn people’s names to identify them.

The logo identifies a business or product in its simplest form.

Feel free to contact us via email or on 01904 623399, if you have any queries regarding logo design.

Poster and Tickets designed and printed for Derwent Danceworks.

DDWPoster and Tickets designed and printed for Derwent Danceworks.

We have been designing and printing for Miss Kate of Derwent Danceworks for a number of years now.  She recently came to us asking if we could put together some eye-catching graphics for her latest show. The show is based on putting a spin on fairytales. Pages from various stories have been ripped from books and stored in a jar, when the jar opens and the story unravels, everything is mixed up slightly. Our design needed to incorporate the essence of the story.

We are looking forward to working on the shows’ programme within the next two weeks!
