Why do I BLOG ?

Matt Lewis logo NEW

I did not start bloging until 27th July this year and up until then I had no idea what a blog was , but now I must admit I like it, its fun. The idea was put to me by Fiona Leigh who is the web designer for Matthew Lewis Displays, she explained to me how a blog worked, what it did within my website and how it would effect my website in Google ranking. The current web site for Matthew Lewis Displays has been up and running for about 10 years and over those 10 years it has done me proud but its a little dated and in need of some modernisation. ( Enter Fiona Leigh stage left), now Fiona is a good friend and is the daughter of my ex account lady Heather who work for me for a good 15 year until her retirement last year. Fiona is a web designer who was planning to get married in August 2008,so you should be able to see a plan coming together by now, yep that’s correct, I did the wedding FOC and Fiona did my new website FOC. Now the site is 99% finished, just a few tweaks here and three and it should be done. Ive been able to view the sights progress and its FANTASTIC, its just what I wanted and can’t wait for it to go live. Fiona said it would be great if I could get some blogs done before the site hits the web and so here I find myself blogging once again.

I’ve noticed that my last couple of Blogs have been about whats about to happen in Matthew Lewis Displays and not much on what I’ve done so here goes a trip down memory lane…

November 1989 Matthew Lewis Displays was born and since then its been great fun and my life has been filled with the following…..

About matthewlewisdisplays

We are a small balloon company based in Coventry. We specialize in balloon decoration and balloon printing. We have our own balloon printing machines & print on Qualatex latex balloons from 9" to 36" as well as 4ft & 5.5ft Chloroprenes in single colour and foils balloons from 18" , 20" and 36" in multi colour. We also have a full digital print arm to the company supplying business stationary and balloon race labels. As for me I'm self motivated, love my job and private life. Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
