Humberstone Academy Design Team visit Greenshires.





Greenshires had the pleasure of a visit from nine members of Humberstone Junior Academy Design Team this week. As part of their Project Based Learning, which is based on 'Design', they have been working with Leicester-based design agency, Ratcliffe Fowler to create their own 'steady-hand' toys. Nine lucky design winners visited the Agency studio in Leicester and spent the morning there learning the ropes and studied such things as perspective drawing, 3D design and even pitching their ideas to prospective clients. As another part of the project, our visitors came to learn about packaging their product, so spent some time with our CAD department, 3D visual designer and saw their box design through to the finished product, going back to school with a printed sample each. The project will finish with a Dragons-Den-style presentation to 'buyers' at John Lewis Department Store.

Makeover time!

Jet Press make-over.

We've brightened up the factory with a make-over to the Jet Press room. Thanks to the large format HP11000 digital printer, which can print 3m x 1.4m, the exterior now has a brand new look.

Following the Foxes’ to Europe


Greenshires' Account Managers, Kev Naan and Rich Hill have managed between them, to follow Premiership Champions, Leicester City to all of the away-legs of the Champions League this season.
European cities, Madrid, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Bruges, Porto and Seville were all visited by the City season-ticket holders and although disappointed to have finally gone out to Madrid in the quarter-final they both agree it was money well spent, despite what others may think.
They would also like to thanks their colleagues and customers for their support during these emotional times...

Academy day, in spite of Storm Doris.

Greenshires Academy Day



With the weather forecasting 80mph gales and the onslaught of Storm Doris, it wasn't looking good for our planned Academy Day. To add to this a number of our attendees were halted by a fallen tree on the London line, which unfortunately forced them to turn back. The remainder of the group however, managed to fight their way in and enjoyed an informative day, covering a varied number of subjects, including repro, paper, and of course, litho and digital print. The Academy runs three times a year and is always popular with our visitors. Hopefully the next one in June will be on a sunny day.
