Retail and Other Services For Your Business
Francis Frith and his company began supplying prints to retailers in 1860. Since that pioneering start, the range of products and services we offer to businesses has diversified greatly.
We offer a sophisticated range of products and a flexible product development service. This is enabled by bespoke technology combined with our extraordinary wealth of historic black and white old photos, books and maps. With in-house production facilities we create and deliver product tailored to a variety of markets.
Commercial Opportunities with Us
Licencing, product development and publishing and digital commercialisation come easily when you have the depth of experience and wealth of content at our disposal.
No matter what your business is we feel confident there are commercial opportunities we could explore together. We are always happy to talk through commercial opportunities with you.
Nostalgic photos provide attractive and relevant décor and are recognised as having an important role to play in the care of dementia. We have a unique range of products designed specifically for this sector.
Our images are used by many hospitality businesses to create a welcoming atmosphere, full of authentic local interest.
Enlarge Frith images to create impactful and locally relevant décor, or select from our rich archive of generic images that suit a theme. Bespoke framing/sizing available along with custom design to suit your needs.
Products illustrated with local images sell particularly well as customers make personal associations with the locations depicted. We offer a wide range of products and price points. We have created over 600 own brand products for major retailers and offer this service. Our Print-on-demand production capability enables us to supply a vast range of local variants in very low numbers.
Web & Direct Marketing
Our products are ideally suited to web and direct marketing. We can simplify implementation to enable websites to offer a huge range of local product and we provide a complete fulfilment service. We have an outstanding record of supplying product tailored for direct marketing companies, all produced on-demand and drop shipped.
The high quality of Frith photographs means we can enlarge them to very large sizes – enough to cover the fronts of empty buildings. When combined the photographs with professionally written copy from local authors describing the history of the location – these create very large panels suitable for street dressing and merchandising.
All Frith photographs and maps are available on a rights managed basis, with a high level of exclusivity if required, and with supporting text in many cases. We can also provide an archive search service.
Promotions & Incentives
Our flexible production capability and the amazing content resources we own, enable us to create and deliver tailor-made incentives and promotional products that offer a high level of perceived value and quality and also meet tight budget parameters.
Image & Content Licensing
We licence Frith images and content to other companies for the creation of products that do not compete with our own product but only where the licenced products will be of a quality consistent with the Frith brand and subject to minimum royalty levels.
The Collection provides an amazing record over 150 years of buildings and landscapes suitable for conservation and redevelopment projects and we can provide prints with all necessary rights at an economic cost.
The personalised nature of Frith products is ideally suited to business gifts. We can select images that relate directly to your recipients or event and provide additional personalisation using our automated print on demand systems, and yet offer excellent value.
