May Job of the Month

Our in house production never stops!

In a new twist in print production, we have expanded our capabilities into the world of small run packaging. One of our first jobs was the Go Get Print box production in which, some very lucky people received a promotional box highlighting our new Go Get Print service.

With the success of our campaign and positive feedback received on these boxes, our eyes turned to the next job and produced the Friends of the Cancer Centre Family Favourites recipe book – our selected May’s Job of the Month!

From start to finish, our Design, Print and Display persona, quite literally was put into practice for this great work. The design of the recipe book from our designers proved a hit and continued throughout the finished product. Our new packaging and display solution is the ultimate way to show off the recipe book.

Below is a small demonstration of our Go Get Print Welcome box. We now have the facility to virtualise your packaging requirements with a pre production 3D PDF, complete with the artwork of your product.

February Job of the Month

We are proud to announce the February Job of the Month!

The Marine Institute came to us to develop their Cullen Fellowship Programme information guide – a new programme for opportunities in Post Graduate Reseach.

 

The Cullen Fellowship Programme provides research training opportunities for scientists in marine and related disciplines, leading to Masters and PhD degrees.

The Programme has been established by the Marine Institute in memory of Anne Cullen (1958 – 2013), who made a significant contribution to the work of the Marine Institute during her 35 years of service.

 

Our in house design team were able to comply with the Marine Institute’s needs for a clean, effective and simple design that would help promote the Cullen Fellowship Programme. The final design was printed on a nice gloss finish to give a nice lasting and professional feel for the booklet.

Minprint help Linn Primary School take home the Checkered Flag – F1 in Schools

Over the course of the year, the Linn Primary School in Larne, have been working hard on their project for Formula 1 in Schools challenge. And on Thursday 4th February, they took 1st place!

Formula 1 In Schools

What is Formula 1 in Schools? (as stated on F1 in Schools Website)

  • F1 in Schools Ltd is a not-for-profit company established with committed partners to provide an exciting yet challenging educational experience through the magnetic appeal of Formula One.

  • F1 in Schools the only global multi-disciplinary challenge in which teams of students aged 9 to 19 deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, design, analyse, manufacture, test, and then race miniature compressed air powered balsa wood F1 cars.

  • It is a unique global platform for the promotion of Formula One and partners to a youth market.

  • Teams must raise sponsorship and manage budgets to fund research, travel and accommodation.

  • The challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way.

  • The Linn Primary school contacted Minprint originally for some promotional items to go along with their F1 display. We at Minprint, then offered a sponsorship, alongside various other sponsors  with the Linn PS team to help boost their chances of taking home the checkered flag in style! Below are some images of their F1 display, the hand built F1 car and the winning team!
