Cambridge is probably best known as the hometown of the prestigious University of Cambridge, and the city’s historical appearance owes much to the university’s colleges with their attractive cobblestoned courtyards and gardens. Many visitors are drawn to Cambridge’s architecture and sense of history. For businesses in the area, Cambridge’s printers provide a valued service in producing high quality materials that live up to the city’s reputation.
University cities tend to be strong in the fields of sport and arts. For sports fans in Cambridge, there are a wide variety of activities, including football, rugby, cricket, tennis and water sports, which includes the famous Boat Race between the Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Clubs. Sporting events and clubs tend to rely on printed promotional materials such as posters, and printing services are important in Cambridge. Printers are available locally to produce all the advertising that’s needed.
Special events also keep Cambridge’s printers busy. The annual Cambridge Folk Festival takes place in summer at Cherry Hinton Hall, and tends to sell out every year, featuring an eclectic line up of bands and acts that expand on the traditional definition of folk music. The Cambridge Midsummer Fair started in 1211 and still exists mainly as a funfair, while Strawberry Fair features children’s and musical events and stalls. Events like these attract participation from local businesses, which need to be able to access printed materials to help make the most of the opportunities. Items such as flyers, leaflets and business cards can all be printed locally.
