Holidays are coming

Holidays are coming

Posted in: More News, As the final pumpkins make their way to the compost heap, the planning begins for the next big thing. It comes around quicker every year, but the excitement is still there, just waiting to hear the chime of ‘holidays are coming, holidays are coming’ and see the adverts ramp up. There is no avoiding it, Christmas is on its way.

Having small children brings back the real excitement of Christmas, but I am not sure it ever really left. I love the build up to Christmas, but don’t get me started on the wrapping.

When it comes to PlatinumHPL, the prep starts in the summer. We start thinking about everything we need to get done for the end of the year, and how we will do it. We think of new themes for the calendar and make sure the dates check. Next year (2020) has thrown us with a change to the bank holidays, that some of us had no idea about.

We think about new and exciting Christmas cards, and yes, you can get excited about a Christmas card. There are lists to be made and we more than check them twice. It is by far one of my favourite times of year at work and we love to see what our customers are up to and how they celebrate the festive season with their customers.

You can be so creative at Christmas and we love a bit of sparkle here with fun laminates, foiling and pearlescent paper.

As the nights draw in and we all settle in for the mild hibernation that takes place at this time of year, it is also a time to reflect on what we have achieved over the year. We love to thank our customers for their support over the last 12 months and it is lovely to see other companies doing the same.

We have created a little brochure with some Christmas offerings that might just light the fire of inspiration in you. From personalised cards with bespoke envelopes, to window graphics, calendars and boxes, we have it all. Feel free to get in touch with our elves and we will see just how we can lighten the load this Christmas and get everything all wrapped up for you.
