"From my initial thoughts to the finished product I found working with After Hours Creative very fluent and professional. To explain to someone what it is you require and to have it delivered to you exactly as you had imagined is a talent Peter most definitely is in possession of. Peter's graphic work is second to none and my company logo is now of a standard fit for any high class retail outlet.
I would like to thank Peter for his patience, understanding and his nothing is too much trouble approach in ensuring I was completely satisfied with my finished logo. I would highly recommend Peter to any business be it a new start or a company looking for a re-brand, he definitely is someone you want on your team."
"Peter has been helping me with all my artwork for business cards through to the design of my logo and also my brochures. Peter has been very understanding and helpful through my process of gettings things right. I have a very high standard, and Peter has delivered.. and is always very happy to go that extra mile... so thanks very much Peter for the brilliant service you have given me."
"Thanks to After Hours Creative for a top quality job producing our banners and brochures for our Olympic Torch Relay celebrations in Market Harborough. Peter had a challenging time due to tight deadlines and a lot of last minute changes, but produced a very professional job."
Wendy Savill, Chair of Torch Relay Committee for Market Harborough
"I was so impressed with the design work that Peter has completed for us, the ability to translate my ideas onto paper is a skill! After Hours Creative are second to none, the service is excellent with polite prompt responses and the prices are excellent. I'm so happy with the design and print work and the leaflets have already begun to generate new business for us. An excellent designer and a truly excellent company that I look forward to working with more and more!"
We started working with Peter a few years ago on a small business idea we had then. A few years later and a number of businesses have been successfully created and the company has moved to London working with a number of different clients globally. One thing has not changed and that is the work we do with Peter. I have to say Peter is one guy who has managed to produce for us excellent results. Whether it has been designing and creating an entirely new website or a small logo for one of the sister companies we are involved in. Peter has an amazing ability to understand exactly what we need and manages to produce stunning results with minimal information. Most importantly Peters time keeping skills are immaculate and on a number of occasions we thought we would have something to complain when a project looked as if it may be delayed, however never has been the case. In short this guy is simply fantastic and an absolute charm to work with.

"It has been a pleasure to work with Pete and the After Hours Creative team for the past year. Pete is very easy to work with because, apart from being reliable and friendly, he always presents us with options on how to make our marketing and publicity material more effective in the most cost-effective way possible. We have brochures, posters and newsletters printed by After Hours and the end product is very professional, eye-catching and of a high-quality. Pete works to our, often tight, deadlines and makes every effort to understand our business needs.
I have no reservations in highly recommending After Hours Creative."

"I have been very impressed with Peter's work at After Hours Creative over the last few months. He has worked hard to develop our new website design which looks much more professional and is performing much better on search engines. We had very few new clients from our old website but the new website brought in several new clients within days of going live! We have recently launched Pilates at the clinic and the new website has really helped this develop. Peter is always on hand to modify, change and add to the website. After Hours Creative are professional, friendly and always available to offer advice to us. I have no hesitation in recommending them."

I have seen and been very impressed with Peter`s work at After Hours Creative over the last couple of years, and had no hestiation approaching him to complete and produce my new business cards based around what I wanted to project. The quality of the final design and product itself was excellent, and I have already recommended After Hours Creative to others. I am quite `picky and choosy` when it comes to projecting my art and photography work, but I found that After Hours Creative have produced my business cards to an exceptionally high standard, and these have caught the eye where they have been distributed. Excellent work and personal service!"
"At DK Productions we are delighted to be using the services of After Hours Creative for our print and distribution requirements. Prefering to use smaller dedicated businesses in the Harborough area to help with their ad-hoc marketing campaigns, we came across Peter and his team whilst searching on the internet for local firms who deliver leaflets in the area. We have been pleasantly surprised by the professional approach and help in working out the best and most cost-effective way of planning our marketing material and arranging to have it delivered to homes throughout Harborough. We feel confident that by having engaged After Hours Creative for a leaflet-drop in early December, awareness of our recent panto (Uglies Do Harborough) was raised sufficiently to ensure a successful run for the show at Harborough Theatre between Christmas and the New Year!"
"We have used After Hours Creative, run by Peter Saunders on a number of occasions over the past 3 years for graphic design, for leaflet distribution and for various printing jobs.
We have always had a highly professional service from After Hours Creative and the work produced has always been of the highest standard. I know Peter often spends more time on a design project than he charges for because he is meticulous about getting the right result.
As regards leaflet distribution, the leaflets are always delivered effectively and on time. We have definitely had a far better response from their leaflet drops than we have had from other firms. We have never had any problems with the distribution, quite the opposite, clients tell us that Ron and the team are extremely helpful and friendly and they look forward to seeing them return. This is good PR for our own business.
I have no hesitation in recommending After Hours Creative to anybody and am pleased to do so."

Peter is extremely polite and courteous. He is also both willing and driven to get the right results for his clients. As a female client, I liked Peter's manner and his sensitive approach. Trying to work out the correct style, logo and image for a size, weight & shape conscious fashion label in a woman's clothing industry was a challenge and I'm grateful to Peter for his patience with staying on board until we got it right. His service was very reliable and professional and we were delighted with the artwork and end product. His prices and time delivery were also very good. Have asked him to do further work and can definitely recommend him.

I found Peter great to work with, I gave him some ideas I had but I could not bring them together. Peter not only brought them all together but added so much more. My business cards are fabulous and everyone asks me where I had them done. Peter has a very creative imagination and delivered what was required and much more.

"I am writing to thank you and your team for the excellent job you did on delivering the summer term course brochure for the Beauchamp College Training Centre. As you are aware we used to use a large organisation that included our brochures in a free paper alongside other flyers. We found we were not getting the return for our money with this process. With your deliveries I could actually tell when a particular road had received deliveries because there would be several calls from that area.
The communication and updates on the delivery status was really useful. The fact that you deliver the brochures individually for a very similar price to what we were paying at the larger company only serves to demonstrate the value for moneyyou and your company can offer clients.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your company to anyone interested in receiving value for money and an excellent service.”

"After Hours Creative have made marketing and promotion easy and accessible for us. Pete really understands where we're coming from, giving us innovative and creative designs that fit our needs and appeal to our audience. Even when we're not sure of the what we want, Pete works to a brief and always comes up with something brilliant!
The print quality of the leaflets, posters and flyers After Hours have done for us has been excellent, and at a price that is affordable - I won't go anywhere else!"

"It’s nice to work with a designer who understands what we’re trying to promote and who then produces designs that exactly match our needs. We have used quite a few design agencies but never really been happy with what they have produced. We love the artwork created by After Hours Creative and have incorporated it into all aspects of our marketing material. The design is great, the print quality is great and the leaflet delivery services is an added bonus. A professional one stop shop!"

"After hours Creative have been fantastic!
I have used Peter in various occasions for leaflet printing and graphic design.
Peter has always been available with good advice and ideas.
I couldn’t believe that he was able to design and deliver my leaflets and business cards from scratch with only a few days notice! I didn’t know what to expect but when Jane arrived with the boxes I was amazed with the results!
The work he has produced has been of very high quality and at competitive prices. My last brochures for the ski show were fabulous, Peter made them come to life with beautiful pictures and colours. It is just a relief to have someone so friendly and flexible with great knowledge.
I would highly recommend After Hours Creative."

"Our promotional cards look great! the quality of card is much nicer than what we have had produced previously and yet it cost less! Our Christmas cards also looked great, thanks for incorporating the pencil drawing."
Robin and Kaye Darling
"We are always very busy running our business, what we love about After Hours Creative is we can provide a project brief and they will handle everything! Once the artwork is done and we approve it, we then have some printed copies sent to us to use and the rest are distributed in the areas we want! It's so easy!"

"Two years ago I was looking for help and advice about creating a booklet of information for families on behalf of a group of local schools for whom I work as an Extended Schools Coordinator. I had gathered lots of information together but had very little idea about how to turn my simple Word documents into a professional booklet or how much it would cost!
I contacted Pete Saunders at After Hours Creative, initially just to enquire about his source for printing but his support and advice went far beyond this. With his help, the first edition of The Extend Booklet in 2007 was designed and printed at a very reasonable cost and was very well received by the schools and parents.
I have recently used Pete’s design and print service again for the second edition of The Extend Booklet for schools and families. This year, he has incorporated colour templates and photographs into the layout for me and I am delighted with the finished product.
Pete has been an excellent local source of help and practical advice, competitive in price for high quality design and printing services. Nothing has been too much trouble for him, including my last minute changes to plan or requests to include ‘ just one more thing!’ and he has gone the extra mile to provide a first class service and delivery on time. He is a reliable, professional but friendly person to work with – I would certainly use this business again and would recommend him to anyone looking for this type of design and print service."

"For the second year running, After Hours Creative was commissioned by Harborough District Council to design and print a Summer Activity Brochure for the Harborough District. This year it was an A4 32 page full colour brochure. The brief was quite complex, to design a brochure that would be equally attractive for a 5 year old and a 15 year old. Peter amazingly achieved this through the use of images and styles for the relevant age groups. With a tight timescale, all deadlines were met, and the final delivery of all 16,000 brochures even arriving a day early! We received exceptional service throughout the whole process, which was assisted by an online proofing service which made it possible for all parties involved to proof read their sections of the brochure quickly and easily."

"We were very pleased to come into contact with Peter when we took over Wedding Belles in Aug 2007. Peter designed our advert and we were so pleased that we now use his design in all our advertising. Peter has since then provided us with our promotional cards, and banners for wedding fairs. We have always been delighted with all the work Peter has completed for us and will certainly continue to call upon him when ever we need any promotional materials.
Peter made advertising easy for us in his calm and professional way and we would recommend anyone looking for promotional material to contact him."

"We hired After hours Creative to design and produce our Let's Get Moving activity guide. The design After Hours produced allowed our guide to be received exceptionally well by those on our mailing list as well as being more appealing to a much wider audience which reflected in us being able to distribute to a demand off nearly double our normal quota! After Hours Creative is a company we will continue to use for it's professionalism and creativity both with design and manufacturing."

"Harborough Classifieds started the month of September with local radio advertising to increase the exposure of our website. During the first two weeks of the radio campaign we saw an increase of 14% in site visits. During the next two weeks After Hours Creative delivered our leaflets in and around Market Harborough and the visits to our site increased by 108%. This was a dramatic increase and proved how effective reliable leaflet distribution can be."
Comments from our work on the Rock On The Rec Music Festival...
“The line up flyer was amazing It looked so slick and professional Same with the posters!”
“The line-up flyer was ace! Whoever designed that was on the money there. Looked good, had all the right info and was on quality paper. Sounds a bit strange to say but it was just very professional and added to the whole feel of the event."
"Just a quick email to say thank you for the leaflets you created for us. They have given just the professional but approachable kind of image we wanted to convey and we are still getting orders on the back of them and they are for higher value orders."

"I know we have mentioned this to you already but we are extremely happy with the flyer. You have done an excellent job on the designing. It looks fantastic, exactly what we wanted."
"The design for the flyer looks fantastic! Very professional. Thank you so much! The flyers will look great and give me a much better chance of securing work this summer. It really does pay to get a pro to do it!
Can't wait to get my patio ones done now..!"
"I first contacted AHC to to try advertising in one of their publications. I was really impressed with the way everything was handled. After booking my advertising I met with Peter to discuss branding and corporate identity for my company. He has since reworked our company logo, designed and printed our brochure, business cards, leaflets, invoice template, promotional cards, and all of our advertisements in various sizes and styles. I am really pleased with everything he has produced, it’s great to find someone with a real passion for what they do. Peter even took the time to digitally enhance and edit photos of our work for the brochure and also for the graphics and gallery for our website and put all artwork on a cd for me. Lee did a fantastic job of putting the website together and made all the small changes I asked for. We are now looking more professional than ever!!
Once again, thanks for a great service, I will of course recommend you and look forward to working with you again in the summer during our busy period!"

"Thank you so much for the very unique card you created for my Aunt's hundredth birthday. I knew that I wanted to use photographs to build a collage around the title "A Century of Memories", but your idea of merging them together into the ornate frames, and separating the monochrome from the modern' worked really well. Also, the high quality of the printing and the general finish made the card so special and well worth the cost.
Auntie Margaret received one hundred and forty cards, including one from H. M. the Queen, but she described ours as "absolutely fantastic." Bouquets of flowers fade with time, but I know she will enjoy browsing through that card for the rest of her life, and afterwards it will become a family treasure."
Again my thanks,
PS. Please be ready for more work because I am coming back for a collage called "The way we were," and once it is completed I can throw away a great box of old photographs.
"The Play Day went extremely well. We had good news coverage from both the Mail, and HFM. The park was packed and I was so tied up at my Play Ranger pitch that I hardly had a chance to look around – but everyone who participated had only good things to say, and parents came up to me to tell me how much they’d enjoyed it. I think the biggest selling point was that everything was free – that was very much appreciated.
I know your posters, flyers and publicity images did a lot to make the day feel altogether special and professional so thanks a lot for that."
After Hours Creative also assisted Harborough District Council by distributing their flyers and posters to various drop off points across the entire Harborough District at no extra cost to ensure they were out on time!

"In the summer of 2008, Harborough District Council and Extended Schools Coordinators needed to produce at very short notice a brochure of summer activities for children and young people. I contacted Pete who put all the information together and designed a high quality product for us at a competitive rate and helped us to meet the deadline for delivery to all the schools in Harborough District."
