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 eyesight...)

So, to mark our 25th Birthday, we're embracing the digital age and have teamed up with a wonderful local business, Photopia UK, who have produced a fabulous video to showcase our decoration processes.

You can view the video here - we'd love to know what you think :)


Trick or treat? A spooky special

October 1, 2012

Treat not trick! All orders placed at The Beeline Company before 26th October 2012 will receive a very useful 'Happy Halloween' waterproof gymsac. Ideal for storing sticky toffee apples and squishy sweets as you accompany your little ones whilst out and about on the 31st October. The bag handily fits over your shoulders, so it will also be nice and bright for keen cyclists and walkers.
The small print: Orders must be over £125 net in value. One bag per customer. Quote 'Happy Halloween' when p...

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 :)

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!

The importance of preparation...

May 4, 2012
I moved my car from the driveway yesterday, it having been abandoned for several days in favour of my husband's pick up truck due to the floods. I was dismayed to discover a bird's nest had fallen from the engine on to the ground. Closer inspection revealed a perfect blackbird's nest, a cosy mixture of moss, mud and dried grass.

Thankfully, no eggs had yet been laid.

And this morning, at breakfast, we were witness to Mr. and Mrs. Blackbird returning to renew their nest building efforts. This ti...
