A Day In The Life Of The Vinyl Queen

Karen Griffin - Wednesday, March 29, 2017

Take one overcast, slightly showery Wednesday at the end of March....

First off, quick log-on to collect emails, note down the overnight internet orders, and set the machine to cut a couple whilst she enjoys her only coffee of the day.

On her way to collect a re-usable Wedding Fair banner for re-lettering, The Vinyl Queen walks her dogs, enjoys a breath of sea air and sets herself right for a busy day.

Then its a quick drop of the dogs at the workshop, collect of tools and vinyls (not to mention her coat) and its off to Southsea to sign write a van for a vegan dog treat company, Barking Bakery Company (just as well those dogs stayed behind!!).

Two hours later, and she is on the road to Hayling Island to measure up a new venue for Lunch Box on the seafront there.  By now it is drizzling badly, but it doesn't stop Karen and her customer from deciding what graphics they want, and pictures are taken so they can be overlaid with artwork before a decision is made on the final look.  Short notice though.  The job needs to be designed, cut and installed in the next ten days before the grand opening.

On the way back, its a quick detour to Denvilles to drop off a re-lettered banner to a theatre group.  We know this banner well here - its on its 9th reincarnation!

Final stop to get a new windscreen wiper fitted, then its back to the workshop to deal with the emails, send out some quotes and 'wo'man the phones.

Finally, on this busiest of days its a quick clean of the new print room - ready for the new Roland Versa print cut machine arriving bright and early on Thursday.

I got the vinyls on time and they were great! 
Thank you for your quick work, that was really appreciated!

Goodness knows what your workshop smells like, because these banners have rather an orange-y whiff to them now!
