About.

As the economy cooled, we realised that effective communication had never been so important. Many professional companies would need a reliable external source to guarantee editorial quality, promote target market relationships and help boost business while streamlining costs.

But there was nowhere to find it all in one place - from great journalists for media outlets, to leading writers for corporate communications and hard hitting, real and results-driven media training for just about everyone.
 
Led by award winning broadsheet journalist Kate Hughes, and founded on a network of the very best journalists, Fit for Print was created in early 2009 to meet those needs – making this priceless resource easily and consistently accessible.
 
Today the Fit for Print team ensures some of the UK’s most prestigious and successful businesses really do have the right words.
  
That's our story, now tell us yours! Call us or email to discuss your content or training needs.

‘...my first port of call for editorial and communications projects...’ Aviva

Our work.

At any one time, Fit for Print writers are working on a huge range of content projects for clients around the world.

One day we could be producing a travel piece for a British broadsheet, a  technology script for a major US broadcaster, helping a leading fund manager explore investment themes with their own clients and supporting a charity close to our hearts in getting crucial communications to their supporters.

And then there's our media training arm - developed as a result of clients asking how they can take our expertise and produce similar results themselves.

As for what we cover, our background was originally in the most difficult world of all to communicate - finance, the city and business - but today our specialist subjects include:

Health & healthcare               Environment

Art & Culture                           Travel 

Technology                             Education

Industry                                    Business

Finance & Money                  Sport...

...and almost everything in between. 

That's the beauty of using Fit for Print - you have a global network of the world's leading writers, on almost any subject, at your fingertips.

Fit for Print works with businesses from all sorts of sectors all over the world. Just a few of the organisations we're proud to be associated with include:

 
       

Fit to Blog.

15th November 2013
Merry Christmas!

I HADN'T planned to start this blog until the shiny bright New Year, but it seems 2013 has already been written off by many - mostly supermarkets apparently.

We’ve discussed it at FFP Towers and broadly commiserate with those who are irritated by the invasion of Christmas adverts the moment Guy Fawkes is toast for another year. Indeed, just this week a client laughed at my look of horror when he described November as ‘the run up to Christmas’. It’s OK, he’s a long-standing client who doesn’t mind me telling you.

Although we are already putting the finishing touches to several content projects for 2014, what’s fascinating is how different industries are approaching the festive period this year. One or two have already started winding down it seems, but FFP is finding this approach a bit alien to be honest.

If you work on a big newspaper or for a leading broadcaster, you’re often lucky to get Christmas day off. That said, some of our writers are starting to tell me that, even in this industry, things seem to be changing – you might even get New Year’s Day off if you’re nice to your editor... and you’ve filed your copy for the next month.

But I don’t believe the apparent gap between this week and the first week of January should make us worry that we’re an increasingly lazy nation. First, a number of our overseas clients are doing the same thing. And second, over the last few years we’ve noticed other seasonal dips in activity disappear entirely. For us, Easter and, in particular, the summer now represent some of our busiest periods. With the increasing speed and level of efficiency at which we must all operate, it makes me wonder if the Christmas lull is less of a creeping lethargy and more a symptom of the energy we commit to the rest of the year.

That said, no, FFP certainly won’t be shutting up shop in the upcoming season, there’s far too much going on. We’re not writing off the year just yet.

FAQ's.

Q.How quickly can Fit For Print produce copy? Q.How can I be certain Fit For Print can meet my needs? Q.How do you vet your journalists?

A.Thanks to our extensive database of expert writers, we can produce quality copy at just 24 hours notice if necessary. However, most of our business is fulfilled over a few days or weeks.

In some circumstances, very short notice commissions may incur an extra charge, but we know flexibility is vital to any business, especially those in the media industry, so please get in touch to discuss your needs and budget further.

A.Everyone involved in delivering Fit For Print's services has significant journalism experience. Producing first class copy is at the very heart of what we do, and we only accept journalists who have impressive and proven track records. Provided with a detailed brief you can rest assured that your needs will be fulfilled to the very highest standard, every time. Our media trainers are equally experienced journalists with added skills in training media facing staff from FTSE 100 companies to small businesses and charities.

A.Every journalist we work with is an expert in their field. All have written for national publications and websites either in the UK, or internationally, or both. Many are award winning writers.

The very core of what we do depends on first class, consistent and reliable copy and other media services, so you can be sure we will only invite the very best journalists to be a part of Fit For Print.

Q. What about payment? Q.Can I work directly with one of the journalists on your database?  

A.Ours is a very simple model. Our one stop shop is the only contact you need, including remuneration for our services. Once you have commissioned work from us at an agreed rate or fee, we will invoice you as appropriate when the work has been completed. Once we have received that payment we will then reimburse our contributors as appropriate. We manage every part of the process so you can get on with more important things, it's that simple.

For longer projects we can create a bespoke payment programme that fits in with your budget. Please contact us to discuss your individual needs.
 

A.The beauty of what we do is that you only need to contact us once and we’ll do the rest. You can get time back in your busy working day, confident of the end result. You may already have working relationships with some journalists, and we don’t want to get in the way of those. But equally we ask that the work you commission from Fit For Print stays with Fit For Print so that we can ensure you get the best possible product, on time, every time.
