Promo Pack 2013 photos

main-headerWe’re based in Edinburgh and offer high quality, cost-effective print production, innovative graphic design, and highly targeted flyer and poster distribution. We specialise in leaflet and poster marketing from the first design stages through to getting them out onto the street and we believe our involvement in a leaflets lifespan from start to finish makes us unique in Edinburgh. Why go through the hassle of dealing with several different companies when you can rely on one to professionally deal with all aspects of your flyer and poster marketing?

festival-experienceWe got our first taste of what it’s like to work in the non-stop hectic Fringe environment back in 2001. Back then we were called something else; of course the name may have changed but our experience, local knowledge and strong work ethic remains.

This will be our 13th year helping promoters and performers get their message out across the city. Last year over 100 shows used our services; be it design, print or distro.

the-thick Based at the Arts Complex in St Margaret’s House we’re conveniently located just east of the city centre on London Road. This makes us easily contactable both for client meetings and deliveries. Not only that, our distro staff can be at the Royal Mile, Southside and other recognised "Fringe" areas within 15 minutes of leaving the office, making us more efficient than other distributors.
