We started life in the pre-digital age and have always been about marketing communications initially with print technologies. Now we’re embracing the many different channels available. Design and creativity have always been at the forefront of what we do. That’s never been truer than today when we have more choice of channels to route your marketing message than ever.
We’re constantly looking for new ideas and methods to keep our print and design approach as fresh as possible we’ve always been early adopters of new technologies. Our studio was one of the first to use the new Apple Macintosh computers in the early 80s. We were one of the first printers to come out of the dark room and adopt new Computer to Plate technology. Our first colour digital press was installed in 1993 and now our web developers are pushing on with the migration from Content Management System (CMS) to Content as a Service (CaaS).
We seem to have “stickability” with our clients. Our top 25 customers have been with us for over a decade each. We value our relationships with our clients and like to think that we work “with” them rather than “for” them. Whilst that’s only a subtlety, its one that we think makes all the difference. Working this way requires a different approach from our staff and a challenge they happily rise to.
We think our team are special. We ensure that training is not skimped on to allow them to become the best they can be. Having recently undertaken customer service training for all members of staff (from directors to shop floor staff,) we’re pleased to say they all qualified with an NVQ certificate each to prove it.
We’re immensely proud of the quality of our work and how we run our organisation. That’s why we invest in meeting the ISO14001 standard for environmental management and the ISO9001 standard for quality management. We’re also members of the British Printing Industries Federation (BPIF) and we are a corporate partner of CharityComms, the membership organisation for charity marketing professionals; as a lot of our clients are members.
Please take a moment to look at all the technical details about our design, digital and print capabilities as well as examples of some of our past work.
