Spring has sprung at Martel!

Standard

Where does the time go? We returned to work in January, and our 1st quarter was so extremely busy, that before we knew it, it’s the end of April, and Summer is fast approaching! At this time of year, our thoughts turn to which exhibitions to attend, visiting our distributors, and (last but certainly by no means least), our holidays!

Matthew and Keith have just returned from visiting our Swiss distributor, Optologic. We have been extremely lucky to have Optologic as a partner for over 15 years now, and enjoy working with them. They offer our full printer range, and customization also, so if you are located in Switzerland, then give them a call, they’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Supplying high quality printers globally is what we do best, and here is our map & stats for everywhere we dispatched too in March. We shipped to some new locations, and as you can see from the stats, our products travelled a good percentage of the globe.

We are sure you may have already seen on our social media accounts that we are exhibiting at HIMSS17 in Orlando, Florida in February 2017! This is our first time exhibiting at HIMSS, and we have wanted to do so for a while. Stay tuned to our website, for updates as we prepare for this amazing show!

Martel are also looking at other exhibitions that may be appropriate for us to exhibit or attend, especially in 2017 when we will be launching some very exciting products. Initial launch will take place in Q3/Q4 2016, and we’d love to hear any exhibition recommendations you may have for us.

That’s all for this month, but why not sign up to our e-bulletin here and be the first to hear about our new product launches and other news.

Best wishes!

Everyone at Martel.

Thermal printer store launch!

Standard

We decided earlier this year, that we’d like to launch Martel into the E-commerce world! After a bit of research, we got the gears in motion getting the store designed and our products onto the store.

Our online store – the thermal printer store, was officially launched on Thursday the 10th of September! Our first official order came in on Monday the 14th of September, and the commercial department were thrilled that all of our hard work has paid off. Since then, in the past 2 weeks we have been promoting on our social media platforms, and these are turning into sales at the store.

We have some really exciting offers and promotions coming up in the next few months, so please stay tuned to all of our social media accounts, which you can find at the bottom of our blog.

To continue our celebrations of the launch we want to offer you 5% off ALL paper rolls in the store, including our linerless label rolls. This offer will run until the 31st of October and all you have to do is enter the code HALLOWEEN at checkout. Also, if you are in the UK you can receive FREE next day delivery* on ALL orders over £35.00

*Please see our terms and conditions here

We are all really excited here at Martel, to see our store grow and also learn more about the E-Commerce world.

You can visit the thermal printer store here.

Born to Shop!

Standard

It’s quite fitting as the commercial manager of Martel to be writing this as it’s one of my favourite ever subjects, SHOPPING! We will soon be opening our online web store where thermal printers, paper rolls and other accessories can be purchased. We will keep you posted as to when the store is up and running, but for now estimate it to be mid-August. All products in the web store will be available for immediate shipping worldwide.

Speaking of worldwide shipping, once again in the month of June we’ve been global. Proudly made in the UK, and exported around the globe our shipping has taken us from North America, to China, to Australia to Europe and many places in between. You can see below the map of how our printers travel miles around the globe to varying sectors.

Map - June 2015Coming soon we’ll also have a range of helpful hints and tips when purchasing thermal printers. This will aid people who are unsure on power, communications, print media etc. We’ll be sure to keep you informed on our social media, website and of course the blog.

For now, I’m off to check out how the web store is coming along, but please leave a comment if you have any questions.

Springing forward with new products

Standard

Spring has arrived at Martel HQ, the longer days, warmer (we hope) weather and the fact that each of the commercial team have a nice vacation to look forward to is definitely putting the spring in everyone’s step. Matt is visiting the US, and going to Glastonbury, Sharon is holidaying in Florida and Joanne has opted for a relaxing break in a cabin buried deep in the forest. Where are your 2015 holidays taking you this year? Are you going for adventure or chill out? A stay-cation or somewhere far flung? Where ever you go, we wish you a fantastic time, and hope to hear about it.

Speaking of globe-trotting, once again, in the month of April, Martel have supplied printers the world over. Check out the map below:

Coming very soon, we will have a video which will highlight some new products to enhance our thermal printers. We know the print out from your device is very important, and working in certain environments can be difficult to maintain the quality of that print out, well fear not, we have a solution. Stay tuned, and sign up to our e-bulletin here and we will reveal all……..

Later this month Matt will be visiting Autopromotec in Italy. This expo is for accessories and products in the automotive industry. We look forward to seeing some of our existing customers there. The automotive industry and the locations of the products for this market can be a very harsh environment (oil, chemicals etc.), you may want to stay tuned for the video, as I guarantee this will be of interest to you.

On that note, it’s back to lights, camera, action and we look forward to sharing our new thermal printer enhancements with you very soon.
