What we do

Effective communication is key when organising, recruiting and building density. So have a look at the services we offer and if you think we might be able to help feel free to get in touch with us.

As the former in-house print unit of the UNISON Yorkshire & Humberside Region we have years of experience offering services that Branches can rely upon. Please get in touch to discuss your requirements. Some Regions have excellent print and distribution capabilities – so we ask that you check that your Region can’t provide any services before using ours. Thanks.

Newsletters

A branch newsletter is essential. It has the advantage of giving a consistent message – everyone gets the same information. Often, especially when the branch is short of stewards or where members are scattered in small workplaces, it will be the only regular contact the member has with the branch.

All you will need to do is supply us with the stories (in Word format), let us have any photographs you would like to include, and we will do the rest! We will design, print and either send them to the Branch for you to distribute yourself, or mail them out direct to your members.

Campaigning materials

We can design and produce:-

  • Posters
  • Campaign newsletters
  • Postcards
  • Flyers
  • Placards for rallies
  • Newspaper adverts
  • Branch banners.

AGM papers and Branch Officer ballots

Branches hold Annual General Meetings to:-

  1. ensure that the branch is organised and administered effectively
  2. keep members informed of the work of the branch
  3. give members a voice in running the branch
  4. enable elections to take place

All members should receive adequate written notice of the meeting, and, if contested, take part in a Branch Officer election

We can:-

  • Print AGM notices
  • Print Election Addresses for Branch Officials
  • Print Branch Officer Ballot Papers (& number them for security)
  • Provide Pre-paid return envelopes to encourage membership participation
  • Mail out all of these direct to your members.

Large vinyl banners and pull-up stands

We can print full colour large format marching banners (on vinyl or mesh plastic). Pull-up stands can also be produced. All you need to do is contact us and we can help produce the perfect recruitment aid.

Stationery

First impression count when dealing with UNISON members and potential members. We can produce a variety of staionery to help your Branch get your message across.

  • Business Cards
  • Letterheads
  • Compliment Slips
  • Continuation paper
  • Calendars
  • Wall planners.

Websites

The UNISON branch website platform will be provided (and billed) separately by UNISON Digital. Please see separate documentation that describes the platform and what is included. Find the details here…

The platform includes access to a fully-featured website, full day workshop, and a ‘how to’ website to make the website simple and easy as possible to use. However, ongoing direct help and support isn’t included.

That’s where UNISON Dragon Court Print Services comes in.

We’ve created 3 packages which offer branches a little extra support.

Organise FREEPOST envelopes

We can offer advice/organisation of pre-paid envelopes and we’ll even organise a Royal Mail contract and printing of envelopes.
