Sunshine, ice-lollies.... and reindeer? Why you should be preparing your Christmas promotions already

By Alex Traska on 16th Jul

The sun is shining and despite the heat, you should already be thinking about your bar and restaurant festive promotions. Although it feels strange to be thinking about snowflakes and reindeers when there's people walking by the studio in flip-flops, eating 99s with a flake, we’ve been supporting our clients on their festive design and marketing.

Menus 1

Whether you've got a menu in a word document and need some creative flair or you're not sure how best to catch the attention of your customers, we can help. We'll manage the whole process and with our network of suppliers we'll make sure you get the best innovative materials and print finishes to suit your budget.

Get in touch to discuss your ideas.

Don’t stop at your Christmas menus; tie them into a wider festive campaign. Talk to us about your plans for the lead up to Christmas and New Year’s.

We've recently just produced the festive promotions for Italian bar and restaurant San Lorenzo. These included menus, posters and animations for social media.

The San Lorenzo promotions are designed to contrast the current print material while staying true to their brand.

In addition to your promotions, don't forget your Christmas cards. We can help you with creative and sustainable print designs to send your seasons greetings. Check out the low-waste origami Christmas cards we made last year in collaboration with pebble magazine. The cards were screen printed onto GF Smith's Extract stock that is made from recycled coffee cups and could be folded into Christmas decorations to give them a second use.

Get in touch to arrange a creative way to send your Christmas wishes.

Improve your January sales

Make sure you make the most of your busy bar and restaurant during the festive season by giving people reasons to visit in January. We'll work with you to develop promotions and how to marketing them with memorable printed vouchers (given away as 'gifts' over Christmas), email marketing and social media campaigns.

Our full multi-channel marketing service offer includes creative print management and design, digital campaigns with social media support, branding, web design, photography and creative copy writing that will get your festive season events and promotions noticed.

Got an idea or target in mind? Give us a call and have a casual chat about your plans to see how we can help.
