“Garsons were searching for a solution to our bed cards. We were delighted when ‘Joy of Plants’ bed cards became available.

“The system is very simple to use. In the first few weeks we have produced over 750 A5 plant information cards – and new plants are being added all the time.

“I would highly recommend this system to other Garden Centres and Nurseries.”

Ben Thompson, Director, Garsons Garden Centre

So simple: just log on, find a plant, and Print

Print and Display options to suit everyone

Outdoor blanks are available from a number of companies (eg Dura-ID and Bluepoint Tags & Labels); compatible modern desktop inkjets (with UV-ink) are less than £150, and buying the equipment has a significant tax advantage (see below).

Most garden centres use standalone bed card holders, or strips (called “label tracking”) screwed to benches.

Government capital allowance for investment in plant and machinery

Great news – the Government’s 2023 budget includes a 100% capital allowance, designed to encourage businesses to invest in plant and machinery and IT equipment. This is a significant tax deduction when buying a printer for use with our bed card printing services.

Read all about it on the Government website here.

Check with your accountant to see whether and how the capital allowance applies to your business.
