From creative design and print through to packing and posting, Phoenix 10 provided Thrive with a complete managed service for the Thrive News Spring 2018 newsletter.
Thrive News is a bi-annual printed newsletter that communicates the latest news, events and updates from the various Thrive centres. It's an opportunity to share success stories and the great work that Thrive produces in helping people through social and therapeutic horticulture.
Creative design through to newsletter packing and posting
Providing a complete service alleviates some of the time (and stress) involved in managing multiple third-parties for Thrive. Phoenix 10 were a single point of contact from the graphic design stage through to the newsletter dropping through letterboxes. Our intention is to keep every print project as simple as possible for Thrive, so they can maximise their time fundraising, arranging events and generally being a great cause.
Working with Thrive is an absolute pleasure. Their dedication to helping people better their lives through social and therapeutic horticulture inspires us to do the very best we can for them.
Phil Samways - Creative Director, Phoenix 10.
Advice that leads to cost savings
Phoenix 10 helped Thrive save costs during the print fulfilment stage by suggesting switching to C4 envelope distribution, instead of their previous method of sending out as C5. This method would qualify for Royal Mail MailSort discounts and a saving of 16% on postage fees. We actively try to find ways to save our customers costs during a creative project. This advice covers various layout, pagination and print stock options through to the different delivery methods available.
Phoenix 10 is a company that actively encourages its designers to work outside for inspiration and creative freedom, so it's great to work on a publication that is focused on getting people outdoors and connected to nature. We share a similar way of thinking that, as designers, is vitally important in enhancing Thrive publications. We have found the more we work with Thrive, the more we are determined to help them achieve their fundraising goals so they can benefit more people.
