Ups and Downs!

Covid 19

Well, I’ve had some ups and downs in my life, but I really have never witnessed anything like this. I’m guessing you’re probably in the same boat. Covid-19 has really hit the world for six, and it’s my earnest hope that in these first couple of weeks, you’ve been able to put a plan in […]

Could it be you?

We’re coming to the end of another great year at Expert Print Management and so we’re looking to add someone new to the team. Could it be you? You’ll have experience in print and/or promotional goods, have a great work ethic, be friendly and fun to be with and a have desire to go that […]

Getting Physical

Time is marching on now, and I’m beginning to feel relatively comfortably uttering the word “Christmas” – yes, it really is that close folks. Generally speaking business in December is usually one of two extremes – super busy, or winding down to something approaching a halt.

The next piece of the puzzle

If you recall my post from last week, you’ll know that we’re exhibiting at the B2B Exhibition at Carrow Road in October. We’ve got a lot of work to do to get ready for the expo, and I realised that it might actually be quite useful to share the process we go through to prepare […]
