Scotland’s DTP Print and Southfield Stationers merge

Edinburgh-based digital and wide-format PSP Digital Typeline Publications (DTP) has merged with Midlothian-based, gift and stationery producer Southfield Stationers to form DTP Southfield.

The new operation will see the merged companies move from the two former sites into a 1858m2 old paper mill building at Inveresk Mills in Musselburgh, East Lothian. 

DTP MD Alun Joseph - who will run the merged business - said: “I am excited we have merged with a company we have known and trusted for many years. We will be growing our new facility and product range over the coming months and years while continuing to look after our existing customers with the level of service and all the products they know us for today.”

Family-owned DTP was formed as a high street photo processing lab in 1983 and turned to digital print in 1994. Its kit includes: a HP Latex 335 for producing banners, posters, window decals, soft signage etc.; a Canon Pro4000 for producing giclee prints on art paper; and Epson Surecolour F6200 for gifting.

Southfield has been providing a wide range of paper and stationery products for over 40 years, and over the last 20 has been expanding its range of gift items. Its MD, Derek Muller, who is standing down, said: “We provide retailers with products that will stand out from the crowd, and all made in the UK. We also work with a lot of artists directly, working closely with them and their original artwork to create beautiful, hand-made gift ranges. I am proud of what we have built and believe that the Southfield name and loyal customers will be looked after and continue to grow in the hands of Alun who will now lead the merged business.”
