Gala Graphics, the Rotherham based graphic design and promotional print specialist, is showing its appreciation for independent market traders as the Official Supplier of Merchandise for the Love Your Local Market (LYLM) campaign.
The company, which is supporting the campaign for a second year, has released a range of promotional merchandise and marketing materials, including flags, banners, bunting, balloons and aprons, all adorned with the LYLM logo.
Now in its 7th year, Love Your Local Market, which takes place from 17th – 31st May with the theme ‘Close to Your Heart’, is the annual initiative which grew out of the Portas review in 2012 as a one day event.
During the two week campaign 3000 events, taking place across 17 countries, will showcase innovation and celebrate heritage, culture, produce, crafts and food. There will also be opportunities for new traders and initiatives encouraging young enterprise across the nation, including in markets located in towns and cities across Yorkshire.
Glen Robinson, Managing Director of Gala Graphics, said: “We are strong believers in supporting local markets as they are the lifeblood of many towns and cities. We are proud to be supporting the Love Your Local Market campaign and hope as many markets in the UK as possible will get involved. The promotional merchandise just goes to reinforce the message that we should all feel pride in our markets and support them whenever we can -and particularly in this special week.”
Minister for High Streets, Jake Berry MP said: “Love Your Local Market reflects markets as part of the historical fabric of our communities and that they have an important role in their future. Like our town centres and high streets, markets are rising to the challenge of attracting the modern consumer, becoming more community and partnership focussed and adapting to today’s technologies.”
With over 10 years’ industry experience, Gala Graphics specialises in producing high quality, bespoke promotional products such as banners, flags, roller banners, lea?ets and business cards.
The company is based in a custom built facility in Rotherham, which allows the team of experienced designers and print technicians to work side by side, serving customers from around the UK and the rest of Europe, on both domestic and commercial levels.
Gala Graphics is a division of Gala Tent, a company with over 17 years’ experience in design, manufacture and supply of marquees and gazebos to the events industry.
