“2003 – Three Blokes. One machine and a mobile phone…”
We’ve come along way since then.. A year later, we employed our first printer and got a proper phone system. Within three years, we had become the first printer in Nottingham who had an in-house 3D card design facility when we purchased the first Konsberg cutting table in the city.
Since then, we have gone from strength to strength, working for anything from small businesses to large multi-nationals like Wilkinson, Comfort and 3G. We developed our Quikstand pop-up display stand (‘The Fastest Pop-Up Stand in the West’!), and were appointed by Lloyds Pharmacy to produce their in-store display stands. We also became the first printer in Nottingham to have a multi-colour press.
In 2003 we opened our second factory, a facility we use to assemble the FSDU’s – this was a move that created a further ten jobs.
In 2009 we became a digital print production house by becoming an early adopter of the revolutionary Hewlett Packard (HP) digital production presses, being amongst the first five users of this now widespread technology in the UK. This gave a fabulous boost in quality levels and took the standards to a previously unmatched level whilst drastically cutting wastage.
In 2011 we became a 100% digital finishing house with the installation of two Konsberg XP24 production cad cutting machines, saving customers money and speeding up production.
In 2014 we adopted HP’s revolutionary HDR printing system which gave litho quality printing on any substrate up to 25mm thick, this meant that P & D could offer litho quality printing at digital prices but with far more flexible run rates.
In 2015 the design team grew again to a team of four full time 3D designers, bringing our customers a wealth of skill and expertise that is hard to match.
All this means that we can offer our customers the best quality possible, which, coupled with our experience and professional approach, mean that we have established ourselves as a reputable name in the point of sale printing industry.
