Tecmark Stationery

At PrintDsign we offer a complete printing service, so can help companies large and small in all aspects of their print based requirements. Tecmark are a company based in Manchester specialising in digital marketing. We have carried out several projects for the one rate years including wall graphics and welcome signage at their main Piccadilly offices. We have also assisted with the creation of their stationery items. To get everything on brand PrintDsign were tasked with providing lithographically printed stationery items including business cards, compliment slips, letterheads, continuation sheets and A4 folders. All printed stationery items needed to showcase the companies chosen colours in exactly the same way on each item. So no matter the difference in paperweight or finishes, all colours had to match. This was not a problem, we offered the business cards and printed A4  folders with a matte finish and the other stationery items were printed on high quality  110gsm papers.


Curious – Wallpaper

We have worked with Cheshire based bridal shop The Case of the Curious Bride for several years now, we have worked with them to offer renewed shop signage, printed flyers, and lots of other print/signage products. On this occasion we supplied them with some bespoke patterned wall coverings for a large wedding fair they exhibited at in Manchester city centre.

Due to the supplied wall panels of the exhibition centre we could not offer a printed wall wrap or custom printed wallpaper for this project as it would not stick to the walls. So we created a faux wallpaper by printing the bespoke wallpaper pattern onto textured wallpaper and using velcro tape to hang it on the walls.

In addition to printing up the wall coverings we also created the bespoke wallpaper pattern using the companies logo and other subtle elements to give things a vintage look.

All in all the banner wall coverings worked well and helped create a sectioned off area for the bridal shop to exhibit in. And as a bonus the wall coverings are totally reusable on future exhibitions.

Smart car graphics and smart car wraps on the new Smart Car ForTwo & ForFour

With the new smart ForTwo and smart ForFour the opportunity to advertise on them still continues, ever since the original smart car was introduced they have been perfect for being used as advertising cars. With a good set of graphics/decals or a full wrap the smart car can be transformed into a mobile billboard. Many companies will lease a brand new smart car for around £100 per month and give it to member of staff to use as a pool car. Once it is wrapped those members of staff are advertising the company wherever they drive 24/7.

At PrintDsign for the last 5+ years we have been adding vehicle graphics and vehicle wraps to smart cars, now the new shape smart cars have been released in the UK, we are continuing with our popular smart car wraps. The size of the new shape car is similar and it still has nice flat slab sides, so it is still perfect for wrapping and being used as a great piece of mobile advertising for companies in Manchester and Cheshire.

What are the benefits of Window Frosting?

At PrintDsign we have been selling and installing frosted window film (etching) for several years. in all that time is hasn’t changed much, but thats because it does really need to. we only use frosted window films from the worlds top manufacturers , so the quality is guaranteed and each install we carry out looks great and has excellent longevity thanks to the extra strong adhesives in the frosted window film.

There are several reasons why you should consider allowing PrintDsign Manchester to install frosted window film to the windows of your business premises. here are just a few good reasons:


Our frosted window films are opaque, so they cannot be seen though clearly. this is great for adding additional privacy to the windows in a certain room. At PrintDsign we also have the ability to cut the frosted window film (window etching) on our vinyl cutters, so we can shape the frosted window film to suit a specific design and also just add it to sections of the window. so the frosted window film can be used on the lower half of the windows to add privacy but the top of the windows can be left clear, so visibility is still possible.

Although visibility through the frosted window film isn’t possible it still allows significant light to transfer through, so unlike what happens if you add a window graphic to the windows, the light from outside of the windows can still makes its way through the window. this means you get that extra layer of privacy but without compromising natural light.

Using our frosted window film to add privacy to your office windows can great boost security as valuable items will no longer be visible from outside of your office, making them much less likely to be taken.


Although available in gold, red, green and blue our window frosting film is most often used in its silver form. our silver window etching gives a classy look when added to office spaces and restaurant windows. it is clean and modern and helps to raise up the overall look of an office once it has been installed.


At PrintDsign Manchester we have the ability to cut the frosted window film on our vinyl cutting machines, this allows us to not only shape the frosted window film but also cut out letters and turn it from a blank panel into a piece of artwork for advertising your business. all while still offering an additional layer of privacy and looking good.

Printed folder finishes available at PrintDsign Manchester

At PrintDsign we like to offer a complete range of printed stationery items, this means that we not only offer a large selection of flyer, businesses cards, printed folders and business stationery, but we also take into account the variety of finishes available on these stationery items.

Here is a mini guide to the main print finishes we offer at PrintDsign for our printed folders.


our gloss folders are great for giving your folder an eye catching finish that will make your brand stand out from the crowd.


our printed matte folders are the default option we usually go to for our customers. the matte finish helps to lower reflections, so any information on the folder is easier to read and overall the design on the print folder should be visible with more clarity.


silk finish is the standard finish for our printed folders at PrintDsign in Manchester.

the silk finish is the available for the lowest cost but that doesn’t mean they are cheap. our silk finish folders have a great overall look and offer the bonus of being a writable surface. So you have the ability to customise each folder to each client and write specific notes in it for them.

Spot UV & Digital Embossing

spot uv & digital embossing can be added to the printed folders we offer at PrintDsign Manchester. spot UV can add a gloss finish to sections of a matte finished folder. these gloss sections can help to transform the overall look of the folders are make them extra noticeable.

digital embossing is a form of spot UV that is significantly more accurate, so with digital embossing we can add gloss finished sections to individual text and intricate areas of the folder design. the beauty of digital embossing is that it can also vary in depth, so we can add high lift and low lift version to give even more depth to your printed folder design.

What is the difference between flyer paper thicknesses? ……. 150gsm? 250gsm?

GSM…. what is gsm? whenever you order flyers or leaflets this is always a bit of printing jargon that confuses. GSM means grams per square metre, it references the thickness of the paper that is used in our flyers.

At PrintDsign we offer a variety of paper thickness for our flyers and leaflets.

our current range includes

as you would expect the thicker the flyer, the higher the price, but our flyers prices are very competitive at prindsign, so the increases in cost per flyer is very minimal if you go up a paper thickness n your flyer order.

At PrintDsign we know design and printing very well so are always happy to give our 2 cents on what paper thickness works best for your needs.

for example if you need flyers for a short term event and are just effectively flyering then we would recommend 150gsm flyer for maybe something even lighter in paperweight. our 150gsm flyers are of great quality but due to the thickness (thinness) of the material they can be a little see through when printed double sided and as they are our cheapest flyer option, they do look it when compared to the rest of our printed flyer range.

if you are looking to create a folded flyer menu we would recommend going for a 150gsm or 250gsm paperweight. this thickness of flyer will fold well and becomes handy to put into a handbag or post through a letterbox. Going for a thicker flyer for a menu is just likely to make the flyer too rigid and harder for the user to keep once you have given it to them.

out 350gsm and 450gsm flyers are best for advertising a new company or launching a product. the extra thickness of the 350gsm flyer and 450gsm flyers over the 250gsm flyers mens that they are much more noticeable if they are posted (they make a noise when dropped through  letterbox) and if places in a magazine or newspaper the added thickness and rigidity makes the flyers appear more substantial. for example if the 450gsm flyer are placed inside a magazine they will be the first flyers to be be removed as the magazine will be hard to read with the flyers inserted.

the 450gsm flyers we offer at PrintDsign in Manchester are of a great quality and are great for promoting a new company or brand. the added thickness and high print quality creates a high end feeling flyer that customers will want to keep hold of.
