High quality print is nothing without service, which is why we employ a highly experienced hands on team to guide you through the complete process with skill, instinct and understanding. To us, it’s important to recommend what’s right for the job and flag up any potential pitfalls so that the whole process goes smoothly. Unlike some other printers, we cost everything very precisely and realistically. We find that operating honestly and openly appeals to our clients and builds productive long-term relationships. Our clients come from all industries across Southern England, but they all have the same need: to print fantastic work that gets them noticed. That’s why we take pride in every dot, detail and copy.
Having grown up on the beaches of Devon and Cornwall which was idyllic, the job opportunities were poor and therefore joined the army in 1985 and gained a trade in lithographic printing. Went on to study for an HND in printing and moved to Bath working for the Bath Press, until eventually joining Park Lane in 1994 and have there ever since running the company with Tim Bacon. Im happily married with two teenage girls and live just outside Bath.
