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.
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!
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
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.

Follow Blakewater Road past The Range and the turning for Greenbank Road until you see a car park entrance on your left with a purple gate (if you hit a roundabout you've gone too far, so head back up Blakewater Road and look for the car park, this time on your right). Turn into this car park, then turn immediately right and follow the road over some minor speed bumps to the end. Inkthreadable is the unit straight infront of you, so park anywhere here and head in!
