As with any new business we have been faced with many hurdles and difficulties along the way and we really couldn’t have got this far without help and advice from people across a broad spectrum of areas, again in no particular order Chris Swinton 2W’s Blind Photography would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the following people/businesses;
FX Motorsport Ltd (Including Grafix)
Once we had The12Design complete our new logo we then had to find an expert and helpful company to transform what we had into an eye-catching decal ready for it to go on race fairings.
Step forward Charlie Potts at FX Motorsport Ltd (Inc Grafix) whose decals are exception in both quality and price, they even come with a guarantee that they will stay in place for 5 years and long as the riders can stay upright that is! Charlie and the team supply graphics and decals to all types of motorsport including touring cars, bikes and rally cars and are highly respected within the industry. You can contact them in a number of ways;

Chris Blench/CBC Motorcycles
Chris Blench of CBC Motorcycles in Plymouth is the designer behind our amazing visor decals. You can find CBC on Facebook for any servicing requirements you may have and/or decals. (Rumour has it these decals can be worth up to 0.5 a lap and we still have some available if you would like to help us spread the word in 2019 and beyond).
How you present yourself as a business is crucial, it’s your handshake in absentia, and so is the cost of looking professional and making that first impression. Speedyprint in Gosport have both bases completely covered. Daniel and the team offer an array of services at unbelievable prices and quality. Anyone that we have had any dealings with so far will have received stationary produced by this fantastic friendly company. You can contact them in any of the following ways;

If you happen to see Sean’s race van this season you will see on the back doors a pair of our logo stickers thanks to a very generous gesture that saw Sean asking for local businesses and teams that wanted a little extra exposure to simply send him some decals and he would be happy to place them on his newly refurbished van (See his special FB page re the tweaks and trick bit that have been added). It is these type of requests from riders/friends that are helping to really kick start our first year and I am extremely grateful to Sean and everyone who has offered their help and support.
As we began to think a little more about ways of spreading the word but trying to keep it logical and useful to our potential audience we decided to have some caps created and after a careful search we found Flexi Print in Caldicot. Paul and his team have every base covered when it comes to printing with over 30 stationery products to choose from as well as over 50 different types of apparel ranging from Baby Bibs, through t-shirts, hoodies and overalls. The two-tone caps that they have designed for us are of the highest quality and look fantastic. We hope that in time you will see them regularly at circuits and in the various paddocks around the country. You can get in touch with Paul and the team by using the information below.

Complete Office Solutions
While we were in a rare state of clarity and continuing to think of ways to get the word out we had another eureka moment. Most riders like a nice cold beer at the end of the days racing but what about during the day? Whenever you walk past an awning you will see a kettle and therefore mugs and that was our next idea, mugs with our logo on.
Enter Steve and Complete Office Solutions in Sheffield, suppling their customers since 1999 and with a product range of over 20,000 products if C.O.S don’t do it you don’t need it! Our mugs arrived safe and sound and very well packaged, they look fantastic and will hopefully soon be seen in a paddock near you. You can reach the guys in several ways and they are all listed below, as with all of our other suppliers we highly recommend them.

We realised early on that one of the best ways of getting word out thetre was going to be keyrings after all almost everyone has keys of some description and usually there is a keyring attached. Dealing with Just Keyrings of Swansea was akin to dealing with a high end graphic design company, nothing was too much trouble and from initial enquiry to product delivery we were walked thorough every aspect. I honestly cannot recommend them highly enough and anyone that is lucky enough to end up with one of our keyrings will testify to there high quality. You can contact this fabulous family run company in the following ways;
