New Year, new inks

It’s been a while since we’ve written anything here so lets start the new year with an update!

First off, we’d like to welcome Chris to the Ink Squid. As our Techincal Assistant, he will be updating our websites with new ink and toners over the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for all our new products.

We have an updated Facebook page and Twitter account so please look them up, add/follow us and look out for offers and product updates.

The office has been officially “Squiddy’d” since the last update and the artwork looks great, although things are getting a little snug again here.

Most importantly:

If we don’t have your ink cartridge/toner listed on our website, then please call us on: 01253 403020, or send us an email: We will almost certainly have it in stock.

Move to Bigger Offices

For the second time in 6 months we have had to move to bigger offices!

We haven’t moved far – about 20 feet in fact, just across the corridor. But we now have about 20% extra room, which is enough to allow an extra 2 sets of shelving and we can now move a set of each of the toners in from the warehouse. Most of them will stay where they are but at least we won’t have to run backwards and forwards quite as much.

We are also making the offices more ‘squiddy’. The external windows are being fitted with contra-vision signs by Jo from Divine Signs this week. She did a great job with the signage on the original small office at the front of the building and she also wrapped the ‘Squidmobile’ (the kids love it – the wife hates it!).

Ian from Creative Direction¬†has designed the artwork as always (he is responsible for the car design, my business cards, the website and pretty much anything else artwork-wise). He is also designing some great big ‘end-plates’ that will fit to the shelving in the offices. When ¬†customers come in, rather than see lots of boxes, they will see these fantastic pieces of artwork.

We are also having a squid-clock fitted on the main wall as you come into the offices. And quotes from some our customers are being stencilled on the walls. It should look amazing – and hopefully just in time for when the Lancashire Evening Post comes to take pictures for the upcoming feature on Friday!
