Make more of the Great Outdoors

Outdoor branding and event ideas
can help to take your business outside.

With lockdown easing, customers are being welcomed back with open arms. Well, more of a socially-distant-wave from a well-sanitised hand, than a warm hug. But nevertheless it’s a welcome sign as businesses look to reboot.

Post-lockdown advice can be a little muddling at times but one thing is very clear – outside is best. The covid-bashing combo of safe distances and the great outdoors significantly helps to reduce the chance of spreading any nasties. Keep hand sanitiser handy and you’re good to go.

Table tops to roof tops. Collections under canopies. Breaks on the benches. Open air events. Meetings moving outside. However you’re planning to make the most of the great outdoors, our weatherproof covid-secure collection has it covered.

Here are some of our favourite
outdoor products on offer this month.

10% off Gazebo’s

Our Gazebos are hot sellers. Use them at outdoor events and markets. Or for temporary workspace shelters you can assemble anywhere. Although they’re designed for outdoor use, they’re great indoors too. So when things do move back inside safely, you’ve got a ready made self-contained exhibition stand.

10% off Giant Deckchairs

Create an Instagrammable centrepiece for your beer garden, outdoor attraction or event. Our Giant Deckchairs are printed in full colour with your branding on waterproof fabric and seat two people (from the same household ofc). They’re locked into position with a hasp lock, to help keep things nice and safe.

20% off Pop-out Banners

Flexible way-finding signage that can appear anywhere in an instant. Supplied with ground pegs to secure them to grassy surfaces.

All in this together

Being in business is often about adapting to adversity. Coping with the unexpected. Responding to change.

There will be disruption of course. But when we pull together, we can rise to the challenge. Every business across the country has a role to play. It’s business as unusual. But we need to keep the wheels of commerce in motion and together we’ll get through this. Below are some ideas to help you navigate these unusual times.


Keep trade routes open to more customers with an eCommerce site. Plus, get one year’s SSL certificate for £1.
Renews at £29 each year anniversary. Deploy your website during April in order to qualify.

Clearly display information

Use large format posters to tell people you’re open for business, have temporarily relocated or changed opening hours. Let customers know how to get in touch. Advertise your phone number, social media and web address.

Navigate every visitor safely

Do you need to change access to your premises? Maybe your team are now working from home. Or you have new check-in rules. Use wayfinding soft signage. Help people understand what to do and where to go.

Be your 
second best

We know gatherings are getting cancelled and postponed. Follow up every lead, enquiry or quote request with a printed pack. If you can’t deliver your message in person, trust a printed presentation folder to get the deal over the line.


Lots of businesses are moving swiftly to offer home delivery. Generic packaging can be ordered quickly.
Don’t allow your carton to be inconspicuous. Adorn bland boxes with branded stickers.


With more people working from home, residential leaflet drops make even more sense. Post folded leaflets, without even needing an envelope. 170gsm premium silk paper is one of our best sellers. Choose from a variety of sizes and folds.
