The YPP Group, owner of Your Print Partner Ltd, has announced that it has secured a £1million investment from the Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) in order to continue meteoric growth.
As part of its future growth strategy, YPP is aiming to change the face of the personalised gifts market and will be using the investment to facilitate the launch of its latest subsidiary, Custom Gifts.
Custom Gifts is a new brand dedicated to personalised gifting, and is set to launch its new e-commerce website – customgifts.co.uk – in March. The new site has been designed to provide online shoppers with the widest range of premium personalised gifts available, including hundreds of exciting licensed products from Warner Brothers, Disney, major UK football clubs and other familiar brands.
Your Print Partner
Whilst this new investment is predominantly to fuel the new brand, it will also bring huge benefits to Your Print Partner.
Your Print Partner is already recognised as the UKs largest producer of “soft signage, and is today dispatching more orders than ever before from our Lincoln HQ. This however does not mean that the company will be relaxing its targets for future growth, and we are delighted to be able to announce that we are launching a number of new products this year – soon to be unveiled following the publication of our 2019-2020 Print Collection.
This new brochure (sneak peak above) will be our largest to date, packed full of new products, helpful tips, and the most competitive prices. If you are not already on our mailing list, make sure to reserve your free copy today by emailing [email protected] with your address details.
We will also soon be adding to our team, with new staff joining our ever-expanding production department as we introduce new 24hr production schedules and offer next day delivery on a number of key product lines.
Vision for the Future
We had an ambitious and exciting plan for growth, and one that required substantial funding said YPP CEO Stuart Maclaren. Over the course of six months we went through a wide range of investment raising options, from crowdfunding through to overseas venture capitalists, so today I am truly delighted to have been able to secure this investment for the group.
Your Print Partner is now seeing its largest ever volume of orders coming in, with more than 3000 orders shipping every week. Our aim is to continue to allow Your Print Partner to flourish, whilst using our print and production expertise to take on the growing UK personalised gifts market with Custom Gifts.”
We see a real opportunity to change this market, just as we have done for a number of years in the wide format fabric printing sector.
