Design
Great design doesn’t simply attract attention. It fosters engagement.
PRINT
Nothing quite equals the touch, smell or impact of a great-quality piece of print.
Digital
How do your customers communicate with you? Chances are that screens and broadband connections have a fair bit to do with it.

BET YOUR STAFF ARE ALREADY FED UP OF TAKING THE STAIRS TO AVOID TOUCHING THE LIFT BUTTONS...

Well, it doesn't have to be that way! 😉 A hygiene key simply clips onto their keyring or pass and means they can open doors and push buttons (hello, lift!) with absolutely NO direct contact.

Simple, effective and SAFE for your team as they return to the office. 

Plus, you can personalise with your company logo + pick your favourite style. What you waiting for? ✨

FOLLOW FRIDAY: SONYA ANGUS: THE UNIQUE BOUTIQUE

One of our most charismatic clients yet, Sonya's is a must-visit - and a must-follow on Facebook for Pinterest-worthy gift, home and fashion inspiration.

There's no doubt about it - she's got the best presents in town (we're not just saying that because she stocks @SQUADSnoods, honest!) and her good, old-fashioned customer service is second to none.

NEW MONTH, NEW WEBSITE!

Ok, slight exaggeration... Our fresh, shiny website is actually about as old as lockdown. 

But we've been pretty busy kitting you out with @squadsnoods, keeping you amused with kids' fun packs and creating on-point social distancing materials. 

So, here we are. And now for the important part...
