Ben here. A few of us from the London office popped up to Glasgow yesterday for a few meetings and a nice dinner. Other people will blog about all the exciting developments discussed in the aforementioned meetings but I wanted to share some pictures from the Glasgow office.
It’s a lovely space, big and airy and filled with light. It’s in a building owned by a group called Wasps who provide studio space for small companies and artists. There’s a really nice atmosphere and even a fabulous cafe downstairs. It feels like a natural space for us to be in.
Anne, Emily, Rosie and Silje have made the space their own with some nice touches and variations on the CMYK theme.
And there’s loads of brilliant newspapers lying around.
(It’s worth noting that yesterday we agreed a new BLOGGING IS NOW MANDATORY strategy and so far London is winning 2 – 0.)

Congratulations to the lovely folks at Oliver Spencer, who were the first customer to order a new Mini newspaper through our site. The mini size is perfect for showing off their stylish wares without taking up too much room on the counter. Ingenious!
If you’d like to see a copy in the wild, pop in to one of Oliver Spencer’s London shops and pick one up. Or if you’d like to see another Mini sample just contact us and we’ll get one in the post.

Today luxury fashion brand Mulberry launches a project called Brilliant Britain.
They say, it’s “a guide to a truly great nation. A bespoke website and printed booklet celebrate the unsung heroes, undiscovered talents, famous landmarks, strange customs and all makes the country we call home such a fantastic, inspiring and exciting place to be.”
So that’s us. Our humble little company, we’re one of the unsung heroes and undiscovered talents making Britain an inspiring place to be.
We’re in there with luminaries such as fish and chips, Tate Modern and the beautiful Plumen lights so we’re dead chuffed.

Spends, Shand and Stovies: Being the Newspaper of Notable Fifers and Beyond is the latest excellent newspaper by Southampton-based illustrator
Jonny Hannah. It was printed to accompany an exhibition called ‘Fifers and other Stories’ which is on at the Carnegie Birthplace Museum in Dunfermline.
Having grown up in Dunfermline, Jonny depicts Fife and its citizens fondly, with loving tributes to Moira Shearer, Stuart Adamson, Jimmy Shand and Andrew Carnegie among others who all hail from the Kingdom of Fife. And if you’re wondering what stovies are, there’s a handy recipe.
The exhibition runs until 24 September 2012.

Just to let you know, we’ve put our heads together with our print partners to re-jig our pricing.
Pretty much all our smaller runs are now cheaper, and in some instances much cheaper. We’ve reduced the prices for nearly all smaller volume runs (i.e. up to 100 copies of up to 28 pages) with some of the pricing for 5 to 10 copies in the lower paginations dropping by between about a third and a half.
We love being able to make these sort of jobs more affordable. Our ambition is to make single copies as cheap as a daily newspaper, and this is now in sight. Once we’ve achieved this all sorts of new services become possible. Very exciting stuff is round the corner.
