Charity Coffee Morning - a Thank You!

November 19, 2015
Christmas arrived a little early at Beeline this year, (November 14th to be exact!), and saw us holding a Coffee Morning in aid of fabulous local charity Phoenix Bereavement Support.

We had a steady stream of happy visitors over four hours, who enjoyed catching up with friends, seeing our embroidery machinery in action, and tasting Mel's delicious mince pies and coffee cake. We received this thank you note shortly afterwards:

"Dear Beeline, what a splendid do you put on in your premises on Saturday, It looked amazing with the Christmas decorations and lights - a real little Santa's grotto. The cakes were divine and the company good. Well done, a really enjoyable morning"

Safe to say, a fantastic time was had by all, and our generous visitors helped raise over £180 for Phoenix.

Thank you all so much for coming and for your very generous support!


Summer season

July 15, 2015
We're in the throes of our busiest production time of the year. Not surprisingly, we're doing a roaring trade on t-shirts in this warm weather.

During school Summer holidays, some of our staff also take a well earned break to spend time with their families. Consequently, our schedule is tightly packed for the next few weeks.

Rotas are all in place, but please remember to give us as much notice as possible if you have a particular deadline for your order.

Thank you!

Fantasy versus reality

February 23, 2015
We recently attended an industry trade show, where gigantic new embroidery machines whirred away, working on specially prepared designs. One particular design contained 116,000 stitches.
Whilst this is a superb platform for showing what the machines are capable of, in the real world it's just not viable to produce embroidered designs of such size and detail. The person running the machine estimated each garment would take over four and a half hours to embroider!
Our challenge is to create de...

It's not too late....

We have had a very busy couple of months - the warm weather brought in lots of large orders. We're now heading rapidly towards the end of the summer holidays, so if you need to stock up on school uniform please get in touch with us as soon as possible. Come along with your kids and try on the garments before you buy. We are easy to find, and there's plenty of FREE parking.

A milestone birthday...

May 3, 2013
Spring 2013 sees The Beeline Company celebrating a quarter of a century in business. Time, as they say, has flown, and we have made many good friends over the years and printed many, many garments along the way.

It's exciting to see that business is constantly evolving, and we are fortunate to have very good internet access even though we are 'out in the sticks', allowing us to keep pace with ever increasing electronic trade (which is good news for trees but not so good perhaps for our eyesigh...

Treat not trick! All orders placed at The Beeline Company before 26th October 2012 will receive a very useful 'Happy Halloween' waterproof gymsac.

Sunny weather....

July 23, 2012

What a difference the weather makes! We've been busy printing lots of t-shirts over the last few weeks, wondering whether the weather will ever cheer up enough for people to actually wear them outside! And finally it's arrived. We're screen printing for Edinburgh festival, a national sporting event, Summer schools, and local tourism to name a few. Happy days :)

Prices changes in July

June 19, 2012
We have discovered that price changes are likely in early July. This could be down, as well as up. But we won't find out for a few days.

If you have received a quotation from us for printed or embroidered garments, please note that we can only hold the prices for the period stated, so please order now to avoid disappointment.

Thank you :)

Where did May go?

May 29, 2012
Perhaps it's a sign of getting older, but the month of May seems to have flown by.

The lilac flowers in the garden are over, and a rather superb show of flag irises has started.

Oh, and we've printed and embroidered masses of garments too. In fact, it's been our busiest May for some years.

So busy we even missed the Tweet Up at The Courtyard in Hereford.

Late nights working take their toll, so, please do bear with us, as we plan to have a well earned break over the forthcoming Bank Holiday weeken...

Fresh start

May 15, 2012
Pleased to report the blackbirds' nest is almost complete.

And, despite their best acrobatic efforts, the chickens are still not able to reach the meal worms for the garden birds on the bird table!
