Hen Party: Kiss the Miss Board

Got an upcoming hen party? Why not surprise the Bride to Be with a Kiss the Miss board! The perfect addition to any hen party. All the hens kiss the board & leave a little note for the Bride to Be. It can then be popped into a frame as a keepsake.


Our Kiss the Miss boards are A3 in size, printed & mounted onto lightweight foamcore with a strut card behind, allowing the board to be freestanding. Prices start from £20 + VAT or you can upgrade to a foiled board from £25 + VAT.

Modern Menu Board for Keswick Park

It was a pleasure to work with Keswick Park Hotel on the design for their new menu board. Daniel asked for a clean & contemporary layout, he wanted the menu board to be easy to read but also clean & stylish. The finished menu design was printed here at Firpress and Daniel framed it up outside of the hotel. The end result looks fantastic.

We can design & print menus of any size, or we can print from your PDF supplied. Get in touch with us on 01900 68141 for more information
