Planning the Deadlines

Karen Griffin - Wednesday, March 22, 2017

March and August are, traditionally our busiest months.

March is easy to explain away.  We have a large annual contract (11 minibuses to be sign written) and as the weather picks up, we are busy with all those van sign writing projects that have been planned over the winter months.  Also, a lot of customers want to spend some profits before the financial year ends.

But August?  Interestingly, we move away from vehicles and onto re-usable banners.  So many events in September, and as schools are a large part of our banner customer base, they often place their orders as they tidy up the school and plan for the new academic year.  And then there is Christmas . . . never too early to plan for all those Christmas Fairs.  We do like a bit of Christmas when the sun is out!

At all times of the year though, we get people wanting things in 'Prime' time (yes, an Amazon phrase used regularly here).  So just this week we did manage to make some vinyl lettering ordered on Monday which arrived on Wednesday, yet when a customer rang on Tuesday for a Gazebo banner to be delivered for the weekend, we had to turn her down.

What a difference 24 hours makes!

So if you find yourself up against a deadline, do give us a ring.  If we can, we will help you out, but sometimes we have deadlines of our own.

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!
