Birmingham’s indies come to the rescue ….

Last week, we had a situation where we found ourselves with an urgent requirement after a print supplier we had been talking to for a few weeks could not work with us on this project.

Between a few of us, we tweeted out our urgent need, and within an hour, between 10 and 15 recommendations arrived.

In need of a short term fix. we were lucky to have such an on the ball and responsive twitter base, especially from Brum’s indies. Thanks especially to Gary from the fabulous Anderson and Hill who recommended us to approach to Set and Match. There were a few excellent recommendations but Set and Match went above and beyond our expectation by becoming our print sponsor.

It goes to show how tight-knit and supportive Birmingham’s independent community is and we are extremely grateful to Gary for his recommendation and to Phil and the team at Set and Match for being so brilliant and professional.




Our new flyers have arrived … with thanks to Set and Match

Our new flyers are now available and being distributed in independent locations across the city. Look out for them and be sure to spread the #indielove especially in the lead up to Coffee Birmingham 2012.

If you are an independent shop and would like some delivered then please drop me an email –


Tim with a pair of scissors = dangerous

Quick word of thanks to Phil and the excellent team at Set and Match who supported us by sponsoring the production of these flyers and to Enterprise Nation for their continued belief in our goal to promote and support small independent businesses across the city.
