Bonshaw Brew

The lovely Wendy asked us to produce some personalised beer labels for her wedding. Her father had produced a batch of home brewed beer, to be bottled and used as wedding favours. The brew was to be titled ‘Bonshaw Brew’ as the wedding was taking place at Bonshaw Tower. We designed the labels to match the wedding invitations, printing them onto self adhesive paper and round cornering them once they were trimmed.

The final result looked fantastic, the Bride & Groom were delighted with the end result and all the guests were pleased with their truly unique wedding favour.

Making a Difference – Cumbria Flood Recovery Fund 2015

Two years after the devastating widespread flooding caused by Storm Desmond sees the publication of the report into the Cumbria Flood Recovery Appeal. Here at Firpress, we worked hard alongside Cumbria Community Foundation to design, print and produce the report,

Flood Report blog

Throughout the document there are examples of what an amazing community response there was to the floods and how resilient people were to the challenges thrown at them.

Our design team utilised a modern and clean layout to display the text, quotes and also the photographs which captures the horror of the damaged caused by the flooding.

Full details of the flood report can be found here.

VIP Alert! Ticket Style Event Invitations

We loved designing these party invitations for Olivia’s 8th Birthday! The birthday girl had requested a disco/karaoke party so it was left to us to design the invitations for the event. Our design team utilised a combination of bright colours and eye-catching patterns to create an event ticket style invitation, complete with ‘Admit One’ strip on the edge of the invitation. These were complemented by personalised printed envelopes with a co-ordinating design, each printed with individual guest names.

Olivia 8 Invite

Olivia’s mum also requested VIP Passes for each of the guests, which she planned to attach to lanyards. We designed them in the same style as the invitations, gloss laminating them for durability.
Olivia was thrilled with her invitations and was very excited to hand them out at school.

If you have a party or event coming up and you would like us to produce some invitations for you please get in touch.

Vinyl Stickers

It’s Friday!! We are just finishing our latest order of Vinyl Stickers, printed and cut here at Firpress. Our fantastic range of in-house services means we can offer you the fastest service for all your printing needs. It’s quite interesting to watch how these stickers are printed and cut, the machine first prints the whole batch and then runs back over each individual sticker to cut through the top layer. The result? Perfectly printed and cut stickers! Magic!

Our talented designed Christie produced this gorgeous invitation set for Peter & Belise. They wanted to incorporate the leaves of the Eucalyptus plant, keeping the design natural, simple and elegant. We designed and printed the Invitations, Information Card, RSVP Card, Printed Envelope and also a Tag to tie onto the front of the invitations. The invitation set was printed onto 300gsm Conqueror card.
