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.

If you have an upcoming wedding or event and would like us to design something unique for you, get in touch and we’ll be happy to help

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.
