Welcome to Canal Print Rioja - Your One Stop Print Shop

Yes, I am starting at a new venue for the quiz on Wednesday evenings from this week - 11th October. The Junction in Blue Lagoon starting at 8pm with the Table Top rounds and questions starting about 8,30. At half time there will be my version of "Open The Box" but you have to be in it to win it.


Just installed new exterior signs for a new bar in La Zenia - Boo Radleys - and even I have to admit they look pretty smart. The official opening of the bar, restaurant is this morning so if you are in the area pop in and see them. Its on calle San Antonio about 600 metres from La Zenia beach - I am sure you will get a warm welcome from all the guys working there as they seem a very friendly bunch.


We would like to thank all those involved last Friday with the fundraising event in aid of Isla Caton as the evening raised a staggering 1677,97 euros, so congratulations and well done to everyone who came along, participated and made it such a success.


A great night is in store for everyone this coming Friday as Gossip Bar (cc Rioja, Orihuela Costa, Spain) host a charity night for little Isla who has a rare disease afflicting her nervous system.

The night starts at 6pm with a range of activities including stalls, tombola, auctions, raffles, food and drink galore, plus entertainment via "Get them off Karaoke". Singers pay to go on, you can pay to get them off so if you cannot sing this is your chance to make money for a good cause.

And the good cause - Isla Caton. She is just two years old and has been diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer but there is hope in a treatment in the US but as with everything it is expensive, which is why we need to raise as much as possible.

Thanks for your time and support.

Just finished some "No Dogs" and "Keep Off" signs for the community gardens at Pueble Principe. Shame Carlos cannot read !

Great new style of A board now available - first one we have done is for estate agents Property Plus for their new premises in Playa Flamenca. Looks fantastic and can easily have new graphics installed within minutes for a fresh new look. All inclusive price is just 200 euros plus IVA.

There are some incredible shows lined up at the Emerald Isle this summer - all organised by Stevie Spit and Stylie Productions. Firstly, Fusion every Wednesday night with eight performers from the Benidorm Palace Variety Show including Stevie, Jay Markwick and his dancers, Nikki Gale and Kylie Burgazzi from 8,30. And then for the kids, every Friday and Sunday the "Frozen" show on at 5pm, while every Thursday and Saturday afternoon they have Disney Days. So if you have children here on holiday and want something to entertain them - get down to the Emerald Isle.

The amazing Curtis is back in this part of Spain and playing a gig at Chemies Lounge Villamartin this coming Sunday. A fantastic musician, great singer and in addition he knows how to design a poster - always a pleasure doing business with such a fine artist - unlike some people who could be mentioned.

Dropped off a couple of large display boards for Drivers Bar and Bistro in Villamartin to advertise a couple of events they have coming up shortly. The magnificent Paul Michael is on tomorrow evening while next Wednesday afternoon they have an afternoon of fun and frolics with Magician Graeme Mykal - aimed specifically at the kids. So if you are at a loss for things to do with your children whilst here in Spain, why not pop into Drivers and get them involved.

New Hanging sign just completed for Keith at Los Dolses English Butcher advertising his really excellent homemade sausage rolls and scotch eggs - fantastic value. Anyone fancy a picnic !

Just taken delivery of the new counter stand for Samaritans in Spain - comes in its own bag, unpacks into numerous parts, and fits together very neatly as you can see - and then sits perfectly next to the pull up we also supplied recently. These will be out and about with the Samaritans very soon. Please support them as they do such great work in the community.
