Here’s a game we recently helped prototype – now it’s gone into production and is proving really popular with schools across the country.




The Draft Northamptonshire Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) Report 2015 went out for public consultation on 9 December 2014.consultation
PNAs are used by the NHS to decide whether to approve applications for new pharmacies and it is used by commissioners to identify local health needs that could be addressed by pharmacy services.

Northamptonshire County Council was consulting on pharmaceutical service needs in the area and so residents were invited to have their say.

Anyone who uses local pharmaceutical services, e.g. chemists, is encouraged to comment on a draft PNA by completing an online survey. The consultation was open from December to February 2015 – the survey link can be found online at

We produced a reply envelope and managed the response process, produced a colour executive summary, a poster, packed with a handful of  questionnaires and posted these all out together with a covering letter all in a matter of days.



The Thames Valley is full of different kinds of schools, from large state school to small specialist establishments as well as private institutions. From noticeboards to signs for summer fetes, we have been asked to produce all sorts of signage from banners and hoardings to yearbooks, journals, posters and flyers.

We produce all sorts of booklets in literally dozens of shapes and different sizes from the simplest folded version right through to PUR.  As we perfect bind in-house as well as offer saddle stitch and wire-o binding we can react quickly, solve most issues easily and now we have added plastic spiral to our repertoire.

From hand finished one off books, to unstitched loose leaf documents, saddle stitched (stapled) or glued to wire or plastic spiral books, or those held together with plastic or metal posts, loops, wire rings or ribbon.  We can make notebooks up with glue, add wrap around covers or wire-o-bind them to make a choice of products.

carbon colour get asked to make anything from the very simplest brochure or order of service to some complex training manuals with the additional complication of die cut tabs and throw out planner pages – this is typical of the work which we do for schools, businesses and scientific research organisations.
