Hello and a warm welcome. Lovely to have you visit. is a lucky little business. We get to work with the creative people that are behind the organisations walking the talk. For them, the light is on, it is green and their customers are delighted.

In return for re-using printed materials, brands are receiving exposure in new places and in the nicest possible medium: conversations between friends.

We re-use a range of material types to create conference stationery, promotional gifts, merchandise or fundraisers. Our specialty is attention to detail whereby you tell us what you're aiming for and then we squirrel away, with the aim to have you excitedly calling out 'Bingo, my friend!'.

We've also expanded to include a new reading service to 'recycle' books and boring work documents into one page summaries for busy people and ESL speakers.

Every order provides local employment and is appreciated.

P.S. We don't charge for the online promotions - it helps to keep them honest and it is in lieu of social media, which is distracting; tinkering on ideas requires concentration. We prefer to entrust word of mouth and our volunteer work to spread the word.

NB. If that all sounded like marketing babble to you, well fair enough. It probably was. What matters is that in the process, local jobs are created and resources aren't wasted.

Thank you ;-)
