What’s having the greatest impact on your business at the moment?
Continual price increases - It seems like every month since Brexit was agreed, suppliers have taken the opportunity to keep pushing prices up.
Where do you see the greatest wide-format opportunities?
Short-run packaging and prototyping
What would make your day-to-day operations easier?
If we had an estimating system that could cater for the hugely diverse array of printed and finished products we produce it would make quoting simpler and quicker. We print on anything from tissue paper, slate, wood, cellophane through to conventional POS and packaging mock-ups.
Your favourite bit of kit is..?
The Esko Kongsberg cutting table. I’m not quite sure how we managed before we had one.
What’s the best bit of business advice you’ve been given?
Listen carefully to your customers’ requirements and don’t assume anything.
What are you most proud of achieving?
Starting a business from scratch and watching it grow year on year.
What lesson does the wide-format sector need to learn?
There’s enough business out there for everyone, so stacking it high and selling it low gets you nowhere.
