We are mostly art college trained but we also have employees with a print and typesetting background. The staff are familiar with all aspects of the process from creation to completion. Internal systems ensure that customers have at least two contact persons – the relevant production manager and the designer or illustrator.
We consider ourselves to be a progressive company, and are now an employee-owned trust. Being employee-owned enables staff to have a say in the running of the company and a share of future profits.
Sustainability is also important to us, and we aim to factor this into our sourcing policies – for example, ensuring that the paper we print on is FSC certified or recycled, and that the tea and coffee we supply is Fairtrade. We are also proud to say that we have now switched to ‘Pozitive Energy’ who are committed to supplying 100% Green Electricity.
