Team Stoke Friday

NetworkIN supports all advocates and their businesses, and offers any small company or sole trader a strong community in which to prosper despite current challenges. The ethos is - together we are stronger.

This meeting now meets face-to-face.

Currently the largest team in NetworkIN Staffordshire, Team Stoke Friday meet on alternate weeks to their counterparts at Team Stoke Thursday. Friday mornings at the meeting are warm, welcoming and never a chore! There’s even a laugh or two thrown in because, let's face it, after a full week of work, who wants another dull referral marketing meeting? 

TAKE ACTION today and book to sample the next meeting and see if referral marketing works for your business.

Attendee numbers are restricted and a sector-exclusive policy is in place to allow for a positive meeting experience.

CREATIVE OUTPUT

GRAPHIC DESIGN

ADVOCATE: NEIL BARLOW

 

I have been working within the graphic design industry for almost 30 years at a variety of agencies, studios and in-house art departments. This has provided me a wealth of experience in many traditional design disciplines, including art direction, branding, typography, illustration, advertising campaigns, creative concepts, studio management and print buying. 
 
In 2023, I decided to dedicate my time to building up my own client base and formed my own agency - Creative Output. 
 
Being a freelance designer means I can offer agency standard work at very competitive rates. And because of my broad range of experience working with a diverse and interesting range of clients, I can take on projects of all kinds - including logo design, signage, business cards, flyers, menus, brochures, point of sale material, social media content and web design.

That’s enough about me – let's talk about you. 
Do you have a project coming up that would benefit from some Creative Output?

PANDA PRESS STONE LIMITED

PRINTER

ADVOCATE: LAURENCE TUNNICLIFFE

 

Quality printing and design – Driving sales for business across Staffordshire and beyond – Improving brand visibility

Hello, my name is Laurence Tunnicliffe and I help businesses grow sales and improve brand visibility through high-quality print and design.

As the Managing Director of Panda Press in Staffordshire for nearly a decade, I am responsible for a great team of people delivering printed marketing materials that really make our customers stand out from the crowd. We enjoy fantastic relationships with all clients, from sole traders to large multinational corporations and Staffordshire firms to businesses across the country.

We are a family firm. My father started Panda Press 40 years ago, before I took over. In fact, some of the customers who first placed an order with us all that time ago still use us to this day. What’s more, we remain in the same studio where it all began (albeit with the recent installation of a state-of-the-art litho printer).

Print has been part of my life for as long as I can remember.

I attended the Watford College of Printing, before taking up a job as Sales Director of a multinational textile labelling company. It was here that I was involved in designing conceptual packaging and meeting whatever technical challenges came my way.

In my career I’ve created, designed and implemented everything from fabric labelling for major UK clothing retailers to booklets on behalf of Virgin Atlantic.  Not just any booklets, I might add, but stunningly realised promotional literature for First Class passengers – delicately perfumed and light-reflecting through the use of metallic particles in printing inks that were originally designed to spray cars.

It’s a background that continues to underpin our philosophy at Panda Press. We go above and beyond to exceed our customer’s expectations.

In 2007, I returned to Staffordshire and joined the family business. It was an exciting challenge and I am proud to say that we are growing and continue to do so.

Our bespoke printing service means that if you can imagine it, we can make it happen. In other words, we offer a level of experience and craft that you just don’t get with online printing firms.

Skill and expertise allows us to handle the graphic design and printing of beautiful marketing materials – from eye-catching business cards and branded business stationery to corporate brochures, banners and signs.
