In the meantime, you’ll want to keep track of who’s playing whom, and we have you covered. We want to give you a Euro 2016 Football Tracker for your office!

Check it out on our website, – it’s on one of the rotating banners.

So how can you get it? We’ll include it with ANY order you place between now and at least June 10th, or until we run out.

Win an England Football Shirt!

And that’s not all. We’re also giving away at LEAST 3 England Football Shirts, plus additional prizes including football hats, clappers, sponge hands, and more every time England plays a match!

Every time your order comes to at least £75, we’ll enter a ticket for you in our Prize Draw. So plan your orders accordingly…

And there’s MORE! Each time we win, we’ll hold a second draw for a case of beer to celebrate!

Tips on how to qualify for the Prize Draw

Wondering what you should order to get in on those prizes? Anything you normally get, whether it’s paper and ink, or anything from our design and print shop. You can also get some of your own branded shirts, hats, and bags to show off your company’s support of the England team!

Of course, considering the rapid approach of summer, you may also consider getting some fans for your office if you haven’t already. Last time we suggested a few options, including floor fans, tower fans, and even small desk-sized fans for anyone who wants an extra breeze.

If you have questions, just call us on 0800 007 5566 and we’ll be happy to help you figure out what would work best for your office. Or use our Live Chat if you prefer.

In the meantime, be sure to get your Euro 2016 Wall Planner in time for kick-off! There’s no minimum order required for that, though you may want to add a few items you’d stock up on anyway so you’ll qualify for our Prize Draw.

In the meantime, let’s get ready for Euro 2016 and support our England Team!

Crane Print & Design Services

Print & Design ServiceNeed new business cards, letterhead, envelopes or other printable items? You’ll find that our Print & Design Service is the perfect choice. We have an outstanding design team, and deliver your printable goods quickly, usually within 2 working days.

But there’s a lot more. Because of our sophisticated Print & Design Platform, you can make changes almost instantly and order modified items right away. This brings the control of self-service to a service that can easily take longer. Sometimes you may even have to coordinate designers and the printing service. Not with us. We’re offering a one-stop shop!

Let me introduce you to our new Print & Design Platform and how it works:

Print & Design Platform

Our Print & Design platform offers some really handy features… and once you’ve set up your account and your items, you can just go in and make minor changes yourself – anytime you like. After that, you can instantly order new business cards, letterhead, and more.

You can find more information about it here:

But first things first…

How to get started with your Print & Design Services account

First, you’ll need an account. To get one, just call our office on 0800 007 5566 and we’ll set you up with your Print & Design account.

About artwork

Next, if you already have your artwork, for example a logo, just send it to us (preferably by email), tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ll create your cards, letterhead, and more.

If you do NOT yet have your logo and/or other artwork, we can create it for you, according to your specifications. We have an excellent professional design team, and we’re sure you’ll be very pleased with their work.

Ordering your products

Once everything is set up inside your account and you have approved it, you can just log in and order your print products at your convenience. Whether you want business cards, letterhead, envelopes, brochures, or whatever, you can just order as many or as few as you want, and everything will (usually) be delivered within 2 business days.

Here’s another perk:

Since you have already proofed the cards the first time, you know they will be correct for all subsequent orders. This saves time and effort and avoids any unnecessary (and costly) mistakes.

And yes, our prices are also very competitive.

But wait, there’s MORE!

Making changes inside your Print & Design account

What if you have a new staff member (let’s call her Cindy), and you want to get some new business cards for her?

It’s easy. Just go into your Design & Print platform account, pull up your business cards, and create a new set of cards for Cindy. Simply edit them by adding her name, her phone number, and her email address, and hit save. From there, you can order her new cards right away, and you’ll get them usually within 2 business days.

You can also do the same thing if you move, open a new satellite office, or if you want to add another item to your information, for example a fax number. It’s fast and easy, and you’ll get exactly what you want.

Print & Design Platform Case Study

When I opened my satellite office in Discovery Park, I needed an extra set of business cards for my new office. The old-fashioned way to handle this would have been to cross out the “old” information and write in the new phone number and email address, at least temporarily, until the new cards arrived. But that looks so unprofessional!

Instead, I just got new cards. I went into my Print & Design Platform and created them in minutes. And just 2 days later, I was able to pass them out to my new neighbors, fellow entrepreneurs in Discovery Park.

Ready to give our new Print & Design Platform a try?

Want your own Print & Design Account so you too can create your own business cards (and other printed materials) any time you like? It’s easy!

Simply call us on 0800 007 5566 and we’ll get you set up. After that, all you have to do is give us your artwork and have your cards and other materials designed. Once that’s taken care of, you can log in at any time to order your cards… and make your own adjustments.

Our Special Business Cards Deal Just For You

Obviously, we’d like you to give us a try. And to make that a no-brainer decision, we’d like to offer you a special deal on your first set of business cards…

Get 250 business cards for just £27.77!

Just call our office, ask them to set up your new Print & Design account and get your Special Deal on business cards, and they’ll be happy to help you.

I’m looking forward to creating your print items for you!
