Go into the draw to WIN one of 4 Double Movie Passes…

WIN one of 4 Double Movie Passes to the Avengers – Age of Ultron

You’ll know by now that we’re big superhero fans. Huge fans! So it makes sense to celebrate the new Avengers movie with another competition.

During the month of May (2015), simply place and pay for an order and you’re in the draw each week (for the next 4 weeks) to win a double pass to the Avengers latest movie (or any other movie currently on).

Orders must be in each full week by midnight Sunday to qualify for that week. Winners will be notified by email and Hoyts vouchers couriered out the following week.

First week ends Sunday 10th May. Final entries close Sunday 31st May 2015.

The 50 Cent Punch-out paper Microscope!

If you’re not followers of TEDtalks, then you should be. This article really shows the ability that a little design ingenuity can make, with paper.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll, folded an origami swan, or maybe you received one of The Production House’s die-cut “Captain Print push-out Competition Cards”? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper (yes, you heard correctly, paper!) that’s just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.

Makes you start to wonder what device you could design that would help you do your job, or impact your sphere of influence.

Captain Print is born…

“In a world where print has become a dying art, a world where people believe just having a website is the answer to all your business promotions, there is one crusader that champions the cause to a better, more successful way to promoting your business – lifting the benchmark and delivering cost effective high quality promotions to businesses and clients throughout the land. That person is Captain Print!”

Can you just imagine that as the opening soundbite to a major motion picture?

We could, but we’ve decided to hold back on the soundtrack and movie royalties, and instead give you the opportunity to win tickets to the latest Captain America – Winter Soldier movie – out today.

Simply grab yourself one of our competition cards with Captain Print and his Super Shield (you can order them here for FREE at http://www.tph.co.nz/products/free+samples/product2055/captain+print+competition/ ) and show us your shooting skills, by taking a short video of your abilities, and emailing it through to competition@tph.co.nz OR design a hero/villian and send it through and you’re in to win a double pass to the movie. There’s one given away each week from 11th April until 30th May. We’ll then decide on the best entry and give the Grand Winner a $100 print credit.

The competition card is a print promotion that has been designed inhouse by The Production House, printed full colour on 350gsm artboard and then die-cut using a custom designed die. To help the pieces stay as part of the A4 card small ‘knicks’ are made on the die-forme to keep the push out pieces in place. The diecuts and creases are all achieved in one hit, allowing us to fold the card down to DL size, making it cost effective to mail out. The result is a simple but clever direct mail promotion.

So what other adventures are planned for Captain Print? Watch this space.

High Quality, Great Value Printing for Christchurch Businesses

NZ’s Leading Online Print Store has been at the forefront of high quality, cost effective print since 1994. Initially called Fruit Salad Design, this print company built it’s name on selling Premium Business Cards for a fraction of the price offered by it’s competitors, thanks to special group printing processes.

With the introduction of the web and online services, it wasn’t long before printing online was available and clients could order print at the click of a button. Patch Print Christchurch was then launched in 2003 and an expanded range of print products were made available. To meet trade demand The Production House was created and additional print power was added in Auckland, Gisborne and Christchurch. Printing now included pens, posters, mousemats, docket books, flyers, magnets, notepads, postcards, presentation folders and even mugs. Christchurch was the central hub for printing business cards, postcards, rackcards and letterheads for Christchurch businesses as well as other companies around New Zealand.

With the Christchurch 2011 earthquake many printers were immediately out of action. Fortunately, online systems allowed for jobs to be printed at our other regional locations with no disruption to production at all.

Today, TPH Print Ltd. is based at 336 Durham Street, pending new production facilities being built out in Wigram. We still offer the largest range of business cards in Chch, and market those throughout NZ. We have the thickest, chunkiest full colour business card for under $100 and we offer a 3 way guarantee on all our products.  They have also added t-shirts, caps, drink bottles and a wide range of other promotional products and branded gifts that can be supplied with your company logo printed on them.

Recent print projects have included Calendars for the Child Cancer Society; labels, flyers, with comp slips, letterheads and business cards as part of updated print collateral for notsocks.co.nz; more cards for Home of Poi – an online store for jugglers and arts performers worldwide.
