Here at Orion we print more than our standard services, we offer specialty product printing that is secure and top quality and competitive prices. We are able to print a variety of special products such as:
Long Service Awards
If you’re looking for more of a thank you gift for your peers, colleagues, line managers or friends we also produce long service awards. These range from simple thank you cards and greetings cards to bespoke printed wallets and can contain gift vouchers, gift cards and even e-codes printed within them. We are able to provide personalised printing at Orion, and the personalisation on our long service awards can vary. It can range from a generic message to an individual to a fully personalised message dedicated to the individual, including images, links to video content, QR codes and more. All of this can be driven from your existing data file, usually without having to involve any IT.
At Orion, we are proud to present our unique new product, the COMPAKcard. In a digital age it is still useful to have a hard copy of information that can be spread out to see a bigger picture, which is why we have created this innovative product. The COMPAKcard is a revolutionary marketing tool which has the ability to convey a wealth of information on a single sheet of paper. It is small enough to fit into your wallet or purse, which makes it convenient, as well as safe as it is secure in its own self-contained wallet. It opens out to 340mm x 180mm from the size of a credit card. As we find personalisation to be an important factor, we have made sure that the wallet and sheet it contains can be personalised on either side, offering your brand exposure and to cohesive maintain brand identity.
Secure Printing of Local Currency
A special printing solution we offer at Orion is secure printing of local currency. Independent Local Currencies are rising in popularity recently and more schemes have been emerging each year. We have acquired the appropriate skill set with our expert team to make a significant impact in the Local Currency market, both in the UK and Europe. Local Currency is continually recycled through the retailed system unlike its paper gift voucher counterpart, and to withstand constant handling we have developed a secure paper that is on par with Banknote Paper for wear resistance. As a testament to this, the Brixton Pound has now been in circulation for over 4 years which is longer than the average UK Banknote. All of our notes include top quality security features such as gold foil numbering, and each local currency project has its own unique requirements which can be fulfilled by our in-house team.
Engage with customers with personalised and promotional cards, such as scratch cards. Our scratch cards are printed securely, and they can provide an air of excitement and anticipation for any marketing campaign. These cards can be valuable and effective in gathering data such as email addresses, telephone numbers simply by requesting details to be filled in on the reverse as a way of validation.
At Orion we are experts on adding personalisation into your products as we know it is a huge benefit to businesses when building consumer loyalty and promoting their brand and brand image. We have the capacity to add innovative personalisation to your securely printed products. Our proficiency to handle personal data is especially evident when printing such products as greetings or thank-you cards.

Personalisation is a powerful tool and becoming necessary in the modern day to build a connection with customers and boost consumer loyalty. Items, products and services can be personalised in various ways. From names being printed onto gift cards to photos being printed onto plastic cards, such as library cards.
A long service award is a gesture of recognition from a company to thank the employee from working with the company for a certain period of time. Traditionally these milestones are 5, 10, 25, 45 years. These awards are great for building relationships and showing gratitude to the employees.
For secure printing it is best to go through a professional printing company that can specialise in security features to make your products as safe as possible and counterfeit free. Here at Orion we are experts in such printing and have provided expert printing to many established companies and events securely and effectively. If you’re unable to go through a company you can always utilise the secure print function on your company and enter a password by going to the properties of the printer driver before sending the job to the machine. However, this method will not provide any security features to protect your document.
Local currency is usually better to pay in as local currency is continually recycled through the retail system causing the money to stay in circulation much longer. With our local currency the look and feel of your notes will ensure the utmost confidence with the public and ensure maximum protection is gained from your capital outlay. Costs are also kept to commercially acceptable levels.
