Does it matter where we’re based ?

No. As long as you can either get your items to us or you are happy to let us produce the items for you that’s fine. If we are printing on your behalf full quotes will be given prior to print and all items will be proofed and signed off before we will proceed.

Are you accredited with ISO 9000 or BS5750 or ISO 9001?

No. We looked at it and concluded that it involved consultants producing a paper trail as big as a forest, £000's and a certificate to frame at the end of the whole tortuous process.

We do however:
Take paper waste in our own lorry to Birmingham for recycling,
Use biodegradable polyethene as a matter of course (despite it being more expensive)
Source paper produced from sustainable forests when printing.
Run up to date, well maintained vehicles.
And that's all we can do with the work we do.
And I bet it's more than most who hold accreditation.
I consider this to be a "greener" course of action than keeping a consultant in
gainful employment.
We didn't do BS 5750, ISO 9000 on similar grounds.

We replaced them with the simple knowledge that if we don't do a good job time after time, our customers will leave and we will all be out of a job.

We feel that establishing a working culture that has this notion at it's heart is vastly more valuable than a vault full of paperwork that, for example, establishes in triplicate, the principle that the phone will be answered within 5 minutes (we aim at 3 rings).
