Today at Your Print Partner we are celebrating our seventh birthday!
It was Tuesday 18th October 2011 when Stuart Maclaren first founded Your Print Partner. Having noticed that the major players in the large-format print industry were outsourcing numerous jobs to suppliers overseas, he made it his mission to bring print and manufacture back to the UK.
The company began as a “trade-only” supplier, with Stuart acting as a broker to source UK-printed products for his clients. When demand took off, he took a risk and invested in a large-format digital printer and new premises so that the company could begin printing in-house.
Sales quickly increased and Stuart was soon able to invest in new staff, new machinery and new product development to grow his business.
Fast forward to today, and the company now operates with fourteen large-format print machines alongside a full suite of cutting and finishing technology, all housed at our new HQ in Lincoln.
“It’s been quite a journey” said YPP Managing Director Stuart Maclaren. “Our teamwork, creativity and dedication to quality has seen us progress from one of the newcomers in the market to one of the leaders.”
“To all the YPP team, past and present, and to all our wonderful clients, suppliers and friends I’d like to say thank you. We have some really exciting plans for the future, and can’t wait to share them with you!”.
