What's the most important thing to look for in a printer?

Technology’s great of course, and we’re bang up to date, with all the presses and other gubbins you could need. Experience is useful too: we’ve been around since 1968, so not much fazes us. But let’s face it, we’re not the only printers with quality kit and a few grey hairs.

In the end, what really matters is service: service you can trust. When you send something off to print, you don’t want to be worrying if it’ll come out right, or whether you’ll get it on time. You just want a great result, delivered when it was promised.

Of course, nobody’s perfect. But because we care, and aim for the very best in every job, we’ve earned the trust of everyone from art galleries, design groups and museums to multinational blue-chip companies. We’d be delighted to add you to the list.

Frequently we hear complaints that our industry lacks versatility. In response we endeavour to provide a rare variety of traditional services and innovative solutions to challenging projects.

Environment

Print hasn’t always been the most eco-friendly industry, so we work hard to be as environmentally responsible as we can.

We have been awarded membership of a certified FSC® group chain of custody scheme CU-COC-807273. Should you wish to find out how you can make a difference to the environment by using an FSC® certified paper, please contact us and we would be glad to help and talk you through it.

We’ve also been granted the Carbon Smart Blue Award. We use vegetable inks as much as possible, and have our own waste management and control programme. To find out more, you can read our complete Environmental policy.
