Our Storage and Distribution Services
Help You Save Space and Control Stock
Storage and Distribution Service
This service is for customers who need printed collateral stored offsite because they don’t have the space to keep it at their premises. Customers are provided with an online portal that enables them to monitor stock levels so they can re-order printed collateral whenever it’s needed. Our distribution service then ensures items are despatched to wherever they are needed (in the U.K. or internationally).
OUR OTHER SERVICES
Our inhouse design team offer graphic design services. We also work with external graphic designers. You can find out more about our Graphic Design services here.
This covers small items, such as business cards, leaflets, brochures, and Direct Mail. You can find out more about our Small Format Printing services here.
We set aside over 200 m2 of space at our Aldershot base to establish this service for customers who had asked for the facility.
Customer’s printed collateral is logged, recorded on our stock control system, and stored in racking and specified spaces. The items are kept in a safe, dry environment that our distribution team can access to find customers’ items quickly, so they can be despatched to wherever the customer needs them.
The majority of the collateral we store for customers is for items we have printed for them. But we are happy to store printed collateral, branded merchandise, and even exhibition stands that customers have had printed by other providers; despatching these to the locations where they are needed, as part of our service.
Online Stock Control
Our Storage and Distribution service provides an option for customers to have access to our online management system to check stock levels 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The system incorporates an alert facility to let customers know when minimum stock quantities are approaching. Customers can then contact our team to place a reprint order with us to return stock levels to whatever is required (or they can contact the originating print provider, if printed elsewhere, and arrange for the new stock to be sent to us for storage).
Our system has proved to be invaluable for customers who run events, conferences, and courses; helping the organisers to avoid any last minute concerns and ensuring their events run smoothly.
These are the most popular items stored and distributed by us:
- T-shirts/Polo shirts
- Water Bottles
- Wireless Chargers
- Exhibition stands
- Roller Banners
When delivery is required, our Pick & Pack Service ensures orders are retrieved from storage and securely dispatched utilising a variety of vehicles. We can also personalise deliveries by individuals’ names, addresses or regions, enabling multiple centres to receive orders whenever they need them (including internationally).
We offer same day deliveries, where required, and can also provide a collection service at the end of an event. Exhibition stands, roller-banners, and any other leftover printed collateral can either be delivered back to the customer’s premises or be returned to our storage facility in Aldershot. If collections need to be arranged for evening pick-up times, we can accommodate this too.
In some cases, customers need us to provide a collection and delivery service, e.g., collecting a laptop from one address and delivering it to another (either same day or using an overnight courier service, which can also cover international deliveries). This service can be used for various items, including documentation, printed merchandise, and other collateral too.
What We Store
Broadly speaking, pretty much anything you need us to look after and despatch for you.
Small size items: These typically include posters, leaflets, flyers, brochures, promotional merchandise, workbooks, notebooks, training manuals, user guides, delegate packs, Flashcards, prospectuses, and similar collateral.
Medium size items: These include roller banners, branded clothing, and medium-sized signage (such as directional signage boards used at venues and events).
Large size items: This normally covers larger banners, signs, and exhibition stands (including items such as chairs and desks for use on exhibition stands). One of our customers even stores two branded Arcade Machines (upright cabinet retro-style) which we despatch to their events. So, as you can see, there is plenty of scope to use our storage and distribution facility in a number of helpful ways.
