Farewell Doug the Bug

Long-time Chamber member Alex Phillips Printing Services Ltd has re-branded from 'A.P.P.S.' to 'Promotional Gods'.

Alex says: "The world is full of apps these days so it was high time for something more distinctive to better reflect what we do." The re-brand coincides with the launch of a new website and ordering system www.promotionalgods.co.uk with a 'divine range' of promotional goods, brochures, clothing & displays.

The business was originally called 'Sprint Star Garment Printing', started by Alex way back in 1991 in Lancaster's Dallas Road. The company soon diversified into other branded products and changed to 'Alex Phillips Printing Services', later shortened to 'A.P.P.S' with the motto: 'If it Moves - Print it!'. They are something of a Lancaster landmark having been in their current premises on Thurnham Street since 1994. "Even though the bulk of our turnover now comes from contracts won with various universities around the country," admits Alex, "we still get a buzz from helping to promote businesses and groups in the local community, many of whom have been with us now for over 2 decades."
