Ushering in the New Year

This past year has been the busiest and most exciting period for Solopress since we launched our 24-hour turnaround printing company back in 1999. It’s been a terrific 2011 for us. We’ve continued to innovate and expand on the products and services we provide for our busy customers. Exciting new products, like these spectacular Spot UV Flyers, have been added to our already extensive range. While’s commitment to give our customers the best and widest choices for their environmentally friendly printing is more popular than ever before.

At the same time, we’ve moved smoothly ahead with our ambitious expansion programme, dramatically increasing the size of our premises and investing in the finest machinery the print industry has to offer, such as our Xerox iGen4 digital press, Heidelberg Speedmaster 74 lithographic presses and Kodak Magnus 400 Quantum III platesetter equipment. We’ve also continually improved the features on our website at – along with employing all the latest delivery technologies needed to give our customers one of the fastest, high quality printing services available anywhere in the UK today.

Last month we reached another amazing milestone in our firm’s history by hiring our 100th employee. That’s no mean feat considering the country’s challenging economic climate and saddening unemployment figures at the moment. Best of all, we are very pleased to have shared it all with YOU!

However, the core values of Solopress haven’t changed. Premium quality printing, rapid 24-hour turnaround, affordable pricing and outstanding customer service are what we are known for, and that’s what will continue to provide in 2012 and beyond.
