Did you know?

The 2018 world cup logo was actually unveiled by cosmonauts aboard the international space station. During this daring event, the cosmonauts counted down and then showed the logo. The Russian Sports Minister, Vitaly Mutko, says the logo was inspired by Russia and its rich artistic tradition and its history of bold achievement and innovation. FIFA President Sepp Blatter exclaimed it was the heart and soul of the country!

32 countries will compete in the 2018 World Cup, with Iceland and Panama making their debuts in the competition. Slovakia were the last team to make it past the group stage on their debut in 2010.

Brazil has won the World Cup more than any other side, with 25% of the titles (5/20). It is also the only country to have competed in every competition.

Show your love for your team by using our inks to print out your favourite countries that you would like to win the world cup. Visit us at Inkntoneruk where we have England flags you can get by spending over £25!

The EU and its new plastic waste legislation.

Featured

The EU Commission have laid out a new set of rules in a bid to tackle the issue that is our plastic waste, and the impact it is having on our environment. The new rules are aimed at single use plastics specifically, and has been described by the European commission as proportionate and tailored.

Plastic currently takes up 85% of all marine pollution, with devastating consequences for wildlife (in the ocean and out) as well as human health, with micro plastics entering our food chain and we are none the wiser. As well as this facing the issue head on from an ecological perspective, the EU commission’s new directive aims to bring about more opportunities economically, bringing in more opportunities for innovation, competitiveness, and job creation.

The single use items covered by the new legislation include but are not limited to things like, cotton buds, cutlery, crockery, straws, stirrers, and balloons sticks. All of which will now be required by law to use sustainable materials in their production.

At InknTonerUK, we already make sure that we do our part for the greater environment by recycling all of our waste ink and toner cartridges. This is to prevent the harm they could end up doing to the environment, and the money we make from doing so goes to the charity we support called Caring for kids.

Make sure you do your bit for the environment too; we all can help play a part in our worlds safe and clean for the future!

Its Star Wars Day. May the 4th be with you!

Featured

At lightspeed it’s here again. Star Wars Day is upon us so let’s be the first to say, “May the 4th be with you!”

The much loved and legendary film series has been going strong since 1977, an incredible 41 years!

The first time the much loved phrase “May the 4th be with you” was used dates back to when the then newly elected Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was congratulated by the London Evening News on her election win.

The phrase is still said to this day and is meant to of course be conveyed as a wishing of good luck.

 

So, we thought we’d give you some iconic images to print off and stick on your wall or to send to friends and family in recognition of the most momentous day in the Star Wars calendar.

Summer has come early at Ink N Toner UK!

Summer image

After a shockingly cold winter, the sun has finally reared its head over the UK and we at Ink N Toner UK are living for it! Whilst we are cooped up here at work, we want to help everyone make the most of this sweet (and most likely short) streak of hot weather!

With temperatures approaching 28 degrees on Thursday the 19th, it means that it has been the warmest day in this month in almost 70 years. The reason for the sudden increase in temperature is due to warm air rising off the coast of Portugal. (Thanks Portugal!)

This is a great opportunity for everyone to take advantage of the summer weather so we want to help you out a bit, in case you do not have any good ideas to be going with. Do bear in mind some of these ideas will be mainly for printables, meaning that if you do not have it, you will need to purchase ink. Luckily, for you we have that in abundance so you need not worry!

ice lollies

Frozen foods

During this mini heatwave, it is always a good idea that you stay hydrated and that you keep cool and refreshed. We recommend you stock up on cool beverages and many ice-lollies. If you are a D.I.Y kind of person, you may want to consider making your own ice-lollies. If you need to know how to do this, we have instructions on how to make your own ice-lollies.

barbecue grill

Barbecues

If you really have the time and you want to make the most out of the summer vibe we are getting. Having a barbecue is a great way to achieve this all you need is family, friends, and a grill to cook the meat on!

picnic

Picnics

Picnics are a great way to relax and pass the time, all the while catching the rays just grab some food, drink and a large cloth step out into the great outdoors!

origami fansPrintable Fans

Why buy fans when you can design your own and print it out! Keep yourself and others cool in this heat!

From us at Ink N Toner UK enjoy what is left of the summery weather and have fun with it!

 

 

Friday the 13th!

Featured

Friday the 13th Today is Friday the 13th. If you are not in the least bit superstitious, this day probably does not mean anything to you and you are only excited about the fact that it’s Friday and you do not have to work on the weekend (I know I am!)

If you do have a superstitious leaning, you have probably just looked at your calendar, clocked its Friday the 13th and thought no more about it.

 black cat friday the 13thIf however you are like everyone else, and are very superstitious I’m sure you will be on high alert employing every trick you know so you don’t incur the universe’s wrath. There are many different ideas about where this spooky date came from; some believe it dates back to the last supper, where 13 people were there the night before Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. (Which also happened to have apparently fell on Friday the 13th) Whilst others suggest that, it was born from the disappearance of a navy ship called HMS Friday, which set sail on Friday the 13th, never to be seen again.

At Ink N Toner UK, we know how people get on this particular day so we want to reassure that no matter how spooky your days get, we will always be here to provide you with the inks you need to get through them! We are pretty sure after you hear that you’ll be feeling lucky in no time!
