40 years ago when we opened for business, the shed was our shop floor and trays of metal type ‘composed’ our work.
It’s been an interesting journey from the shed to where we are now, with many challenges and adventures along the way. The first big national contract we got was to print the cinema programmes for Canon and EMI cinema chains. We were accredited with BSI some 26 years ago and started as M&S’s back up printer should disaster strike around the same time. Our apprentice won the coveted BPIF apprentice of the year in 2003 a first for not only us but for the industry as Rowena was the first female winner of that award. We have trained over 20 apprentices in our 40 years and it was all home grown staff that produced the 2012 Olympic stamps. With our wealth of experience you will never find us out of our depth.
You’re busy; we will never slow you down. Once you have submitted your artwork, be confident that your proof is on its way. It’s not a dark art, we use the latest technology, and we’re efficient. For smaller jobs we can text you a proof.
We’ll keep you informed every step of the way. You will only speak to your dedicated representative they’ll oversee your job from start to finish, you’re virtually onsite.
We will never bombard you with sales calls. However we won’t give you the silent treatment either, from time to time we’ll give you a call to see if there is anything we can help you with. If you ever need advice or help with a project, call us, we’ll make our geeks talk!
If we can see a way to save you money we’ll tell you how it can be done. We will also, where appropriate, collaborate with ideas that will improve your project creating more ‘bang for your buck’.
