Does there seem to be some optimism in the air? We think, so. Over the last few weeks, we've noticed a pickup in orders that has certainly produced some cheer within our offices. As flyer printers in the heart of London, we have a complete cross-section of London's businesses as our clientele and there's definitely a positive vibe going around.

London is about to have the World's attention for the next six months and we are considerably luckier than our European partners. As a nation, we should really make the most of this fabulous opportunity. Let's grab the bull by the horns and really embrace it. It's self-perpetuating, in simplistic terms, the recession was caused by all of us, the bubble burst because we lost confidence. We talked ourselves into it. The process to get out of this pickle is exactly the same. When people are confident they invest more, it's a cyclical scenario and it's just a matter of time.
With the Budget this Wednesday, who knows how this will affect the mood. Fingers crossed, and hopefully, the budding positive mood will begin to grow. For fly printers like us, it's essential that the economy continues to pick up. Confidence is slowly beginning to spread, and when companies are confident their expenditure on marketing materials grows too and they order flyers such as these:
If you require printing services, feel free to contact us. We're conveniently located in South London, equidistant from London Bridge and Waterloo stations.
