Are you new to the process of printing? Are all the options a little too confusing?

Well here is a helping hand so you can understand just two of the forms of printing – Screen Printing and Heat Transfer. It would be unfair to say that one is better than the other as both of these ways have their advantages. The decision is yours.

Screen Printing

Screen printing, as the names suggests, is a technique used to create images by using a mesh stencil or stencils, depending on how many colours your logo requires, and it is used to transfer ink onto your choice of product. Due to the colours being perfectly lined up, the machine is limited to how many screens it can hold. An average machine can hold up to 6 screens and therefore you can potentially have 6 colours printed, if you desire.

Finding a way for customers to even consider your brand, let alone begin the process of purchasing your products or service, is becoming increasingly difficult. This is because consumers are constantly bombarded with hundreds of options for every sector imaginable, therefore it is crucial to find out why they are not clicking YOUR ‘buy button’.

Main reasons for ‘NO sale’  

In the past 12 months, a significant number of 18 to 34 year olds switched from one of their favourite brands. YouGov and the commerce cloud provider GT Nexus conducted a survey to find out why this switching of brands is becoming so frequent in this day and age.

Image result for vlogging

Winning the attention of a specific target audience can be quite a chore but in order to gain popularity, your brand may find it useful to work with an online influencer.  Phillip Brown, sociology expert, states the Vloggers (some of whom also know as the Facebook Famous) and other online influencers have more of an impact on customer’s buying  impulses than  brand efforts alone.

Although getting a leading influencer on board to help your brand grow could be greatly beneficial, Brown advises brands not to assume that they always know what is best for their company exposure. Instead they must allow influencers to use their proven strengths no matter how unorthodox.

The evolution of the World Wide Web

earth-1920x1080-id-44640-world-wide-e1472114251196The Internet is an amazing thing (guaranteed) that has been around since 1990 and it is remarkable at how far it is come in such a short space of time. For example when the internet was first available it was a platform designed simply to share information mainly used by businesses, however today nearly everyone uses it, and do so even in their ordinary day-to-day chores, such as the weekly shop. To say that we used to get on with our lives and work without the Internet seems preposterous because it has now become a part of all of us, I bet 90% of the UK population don’t go a single day without going online.

Stay Connected – Stay Charged

GoPromotional September 7th, 2016


Electronic gadgets are taking human ability to the next level. The advancement of this technology is simply astounding, for how far it has come in such a short period of time, especially gadgets such as mobile phones, tablets, and portable gaming stations i.e. Nintendo ds.  Our whole way of entertainment and work is now able to be put in our pockets, and it can be taken anywhere we desire, who ever thought that it would be possible to do all your work from the comfort of your own home or even a sunny beach (if you really wanted to, I know I would!). However, all these gadgets in today’s age are power hungry, unlike 10+ years ago when typically, a Nokia mobile battery life could last you a whole week if not longer, but you’d be lucky to get a full days’ worth of battery life from today’s smartphones.

GoPromotional July 25th, 2016


So what’s the trend this week I hear you ask? Well you can just Go ‘PokémonGO’, this beloved childhood game from the 90’s has made a return and it’s not just children that are loving it, its adults too.

This new game actually manages to get you out of the house, as you have to walk around your area to gain characters as it uses google maps to combine real life within its virtual world, where it uses local landmarks as “Pokémon shops” so you have to walk to these landmarks to go to the shop on your game, sounds like far too much exercise for a game to me.
