Here’s one reason, well two really, why I think the rest of 2012 is going to be great!

Two local companies have teamed up to fly the flag for Darlington’s growing Wedding industry by printing a new glossy magazine aimed at brides-to-be in our area.
Darlington Weddings and Splash Print Management are working together on the project to ensure brides get the information they want about the suppliers they need to bring their special day together. It features and promotes all manner of wedding service providers from bespoke cake designers to chair cover suppliers and unique ways to entertain guests.
Now in its second issue, the magazine has more than doubled in size due to an increased demand for advertising space, allowing Darlington Weddings to expand into wedding fayres. The team hosted its second event earlier this month at Redworth Hall Hotel and it was a fantastic success!
Craig Maddison, owner of Darlington Weddings, said: “Weddings are a growing industry in our region and we aim to promote that so it continues to grow. The magazine was a logical step from the listings website because we already had links with so many local wedding service providers and we like to work with local companies and stay true to our name.”
“Our first issue was a success but we wanted to go bigger and become a ‘glossy’ magazine. Splash has worked with us to make sure we get a magazine which looks the part.”

After a successful first year in business and a client list of national companies with a regional base, Splash Print Management, headed by Sharon Hutchinson, is working with a number of Darlington companies to promote business growth in the town.
Sharon Hutchinson, director of Splash Print Management, said: “We are delighted to be working with a local company to fly the flag for Darlington. When Craig first approached us it was a one-off job and now it’s flourished into a long term relationship between our businesses.”
Splash Print Management has brought together a team of people that are experienced in customer service and print. The company is transparent about outsourcing the production of print, enabling them to concentrate on adding value through their advice, customer service and getting the right supplier for each job.
Sharon added: “We identified a gap in the market to make a print management service more accessible. The big PLCs (Public Limited Companies) all use print management companies as they understand the benefit of having experts buy and manage on their behalf, but there was no one offering a scaled-down service for smaller organisations.”
