Northside Graphics – supplying printing essentials for new businesses

Starting a new business is guaranteed to bring with it a lot of pressure and an everlasting to do list. There’s a lot to consider and one of the most important first steps for any start-up is producing marketing and printed essentials such as stationery.
Getting your printed material right is important because it’s a visual representation of everything your stand for as a business, and organising something as vital as this can often become a daunting affair. 
As Northern Ireland’s oldest and largest digital printer, Northside Graphics are perfectly placed to offer advice on what materials and finishes will help make your jobs really stand out. With nearly 30 years’ experience, we really know our print and our customers know they can trust us to deliver perfect print every time.
Say you’ve arrived with printed stationery
Any new business, however small, needs quality printed stationery in the form of business cards, letterheads and compliment slips. Using printed stationery for written communications with customers, suppliers or other businesses will help your company look professional and trustworthy. And a consistent visual identity across your stationery and other marketing will help to increase awareness and recognition of your brand.
Business cards – your big first impression
Often the first impression someone has of your company, your business card must be well designed and professionally printed on quality paper stock. No one likes to receive a thin, poorly printed business card. If your card is poor quality, potential customers will assume the same of your business. 
Business Cards for Start-ups
We print all of your stationery using top of the range HP Indigo digital presses that produce the best digital print on the market. We print on premium papers and card in a range of weights and finishes. We also supply a range of luxury business cards that are sure to get your new business noticed for all the right reasons. Have a look on our website and call us for a quote. We’re sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Letterheads and compliment slips – professional and personal
Use printed letterheads and compliment slips to add both a professional and personal touch to all business communications. When you send a product or sample, include a handwritten note on a compliments slip. That personal touch is a great way to build relationships, strengthen brand loyalty and help turn new customers into regular customers.
Build your brand with printed appointment cards 
Many people think business stationery starts and ends with letterheads, business cards and compliment slips but our customers know that printed stationery covers much more than that. Appointment cards are a great way to strengthen your brand when confirming your meeting. Hand them out if making appointments at events or shows, or post them if meetings are arranged by phone or email.
