Glenmore Printing: Promotional Piece

Recently at work, we received a promotional piece from Glenmore Printing. I couldn’t resist to blog about it, so here it is.

It came in a cute little box with 4 circles with 1950s illustrations of people. which opened up with 4 square boxes – 2 red and 2 yellow. Each with a tea bag inside which was supplied by Secret Garden Tea Company. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to try out the tea…

As you can see in the video they put together on how it was made (http://www.glenmoreprinting.com/packaging.php), the boxes were assembled by hand! Well, the boxes are really delicate, so I guess you would have to do them by hand.

I personally haven’t worked with Glemore, so I can’t really say about their service and print quality (other than the promotional piece), but if you need big print jobs, they are the printer to go to. Their website says they do custom printed paperboard, corrugated boxes, cartons & sleeves, large/small sized boxes or small, long run or short and much more.

“With full in house finishing, your packaging is printed and assembled locally under our roof to lower costs, improve turnaround times, and maintain high levels of quality. Our team of packaging experts can quickly provide you with a correct layout and printed samples to help you visualize your finished product.” – Glemore Printing

Bel Cafe

Bel Cafe on Urbanspoon

I went to Bel Cafe the other day to purchase their tea that’s partnering up with Karma Exchange, a social enterprise helping people in Ghana gain access to clean water and education.

I know their bags aren’t printed by them. The Bel Cafe logo is a sticker placed on those generic black bags. But still! Very cute, modern and simple. Love it!!

I had the privilege of taking Bel Cafe‘s tea’s and adding the Karma Exchange‘s hearts and info!!!
“Treat yourself to some Karma Tea from SPOT Tea at Bel Cafe. A delicate blend of ginger, mint, and citrus, this organic tea is a perfect blend of relaxation and joy that is sure to melt stress away. Each time you purchase a cup ($2.50) or a canister of Karma Tea ($11.00) from Bel Cafe, 25% of your puchase will go toward the Sanga Primary School Water Project.” Click here to see more about the deal and supported charity.

The Secret Garden Tea Company

Secret Garden Tea Company on Urbanspoon

Recently, I had the chance to go check out the Secret Garden Tea Company located at 5559 West Boulevard
Vancouver, BC. Telephone: 604.261.3070 | Email: info@secretgardentea.com

They’re known for their High Tea which reservations can be made for: 12pm, 2:15pm and 4:30pm, 7 days a week, and cost $26.95 for adults and $17.95 for children (8 and under).

If you’re tight on budget, you can try the half Tea available. It was my first time going for this kind of special tea, and I tried the Demi High Tea for $12.95, and it was just the right amount for me. (includes 2 miniature sweets, 2 miniature sandwiches,
a miniature scone, raspberry jam, Devon cream and  Secret Garden Tea). They have a wide selection of teas to choose from, so you can keep coming back to try a new tea every time 🙂

Beautifully designed menus! 😀

And beautiful tea cups!!

Mmmmmmmm!!!
