So I was surprised that, looking back on it from this point, Friday mid morning, there are all sorts of projects that have either been finished or significantly moved forward.
The big one at the start of the week was a set of lapel badges and table cards for the annual dinner of one client. Over four hundred people were due at the event but some could not commit until the last moment and others dropped out with just hours to go. Our job was to create name cards for each one, table setting cards so they could find their seats and finally a guest list to go in each place setting. It all arrived on time but there were a few fraught moments getting there I must say!
Business cards have also featured highly in this week’s production. Ranging from an small interior design business to a chain of hotels who have several dozen staff in a multitude of locations. For some reason everyone wants new cards right now.
From time to time we are asked to produce an order of service for a funeral and this week we printed one for a friend of one of our clients. When these jobs come along they are usually quite short notice, we make room for them in the schedule at the first opportunity and get them away by overnight courier. I heard back today the it had all gone well and they had been delighted by what we had done.
Otherwise it’s just been one of those weeks of design, proof, change, proof again, print, despatch and go home exhausted. I’m going to spend the weekend gardening and we’ll be back to do it all again on Monday.
