Inkthre­adable: Behind the Screens


Behind the Screens

We love meeting customers

You're motivated, intelligent, and each of you are as different as the next! But we've found that things like travel time or expense for value can prevent customers from coming to meet us.

So we had a thought: why not host colla­borative customer meetings? Relaxed, social meetings that last for a few hours, teach you the things you need to know to start or grow your business with Inkthre­adable and see you leaving fed, watered, and clutching a few free samples to ignite your imagination?

They're meetings that are worth the travelling time, no matter where you're coming from.

You're invited

We'd like to invite you to Inkthre­adable: Behind the Screens — an event held every fortnight, where up to 10 like-minded entrep­re­neurs can meet us and each other, tour Inkthre­adable, and learn everything they need to know to set up and integrate a store, place and pay for orders, create engaging product pages, and handle customer service. It's a fun day with friendly people (and freebies), and you're welcome to book a ticket for a business partner or friend to come along too.

But tickets are limited, so don't hang around!

Event details

Lunch is on us

We'll put together a buffet style lunch for you to have your way with at no cost to attendees. Though, if you'd prefer, there are a few other options nearby. There's a small cafe catering both hot and cold food and drinks within the business complex, and there's a Tesco and Aldi supermarket a few minutes away by car.

If you'd like to opt out of the free lunch provided by Inkthre­adable, or you have any special dietary requirements that you didn't let us know about when booking your ticket, please email with your name and the date of your event so that we can amend our records.

Plenty of free parking

Our premises is part of a larger business complex so you'll have no difficulty parking at and around our building (and it's all free!). All car parks on the business complex are managed by BizSpace, who take no respon­sibility for theft or damage.

Disabled access

Inkthre­adable's premises are disability friendly. We have a disabled toilet on site and all areas of the building are fully accessible. But don't just take our word for it — if you have any concerns about a disability before you arrive please let us know and we will work with you to make your visit enjoyable.
