Sites of the day

Some of the more observant vistors to our site may have noticed that we have a new featured site of the day at the bottom of the right hand column of the Indigo home page. This link is drawn from our new useful clothing sites page. This collection of links is powered by the Indigo […]

Calm before the storm

It has been a pleasant weekend, crammed full of exciting sport and it has been a pleasure to watch England play great cricket in the Ashes, Paula winning the Marathon at the World Championships in Helsinki and the All Blacks beating Australia in the Tri-Nations rugby. Come Monday morning though it will be all hands […]

Pantone book for sale

Indigo have a spare 2005 Pantone formula guide (solid uncoated) still in its plastic wrapping for sale on Ebay. Feel free to bid for it if you need one 😉 Pantone books are vital for colour matching when screen printing. The problem is the colours fade, and they get handled a lot, so it is […]

Clear desk policies

When friends in large corporate offices tell me they have a ‘clear desk policy’ I often shudder at the thought of my own desk; a slab of laminated MDF hidden under swatch cards, t-shirt samples, price-lists, job files, post-it-notes and the usual desk detritus. Don’t get me wrong, I can see why big companies try […]

Letter from Boris

Boris Johnson, Tory MP for Henely-on-Thames, editor of The Spectator and one of the craziest guest presenters of ‘Have I Got News For You‘ sent us a very nice letter thanking us for his limited edition Gapingvoid t-shirt. It is always nice to get a thank you. A must see is his fan site, BorisWatch.com! […]

New Indigo Logo

The sexy new Indigo logo is now being rolled out through the website and all our stationery. We will of course have a go at embroidering it onto some clothes too! The logo was designed by June Lloyd, one of our extremley talented freelance graphic artists who followed our brief of ‘simple and clean’ perfectly. […]

Print Price Plunge

Inspired by the revamping of our t-shirt section, James (expert in Economics, Spanish football and Eastern European city breaks) took a long hard look at our screen printing price breaks. He has added higher volume breaks and reduced the number of price bands at the lower level. More exciting though is that prices have been […]

Cheaper, Better T-Shirts

T-shirt printing is the biggest, if not the most important part of the promotional clothing industry, and when I hear people describing Indigo to their friends, I often hear us being to referred to as t-shirt printers. Not only that, every time we list in a web or printed directory we often have to classify […]

Blitz Mentality

The London terrorist attack of July 7th has resulted in a nervous anxiety cloacking the City and our business is now conducted to the soundtrack of sirens and the backdrop of hi-visibility jackets. Quite a swing in mood from the euphoria of London being awarded the Olympics the day before to the shock that Dickie […]

London win Olympics 2012

London win the Olympics 2012. This is just great news – a proud day to be a Londoner, and a even better one for UK sport. Just watched the Red Arrows fly over the office – fantastic! Dickie just spoke to Steve Backley, the British Olympian and one of our latest clients, who was apparently celebrating […]
