A note from YPP about COVID-19

We just want you to know that were monitoring the situation regarding COVID-19 closely and following all advice from the UK’s health department to make sure we’re doing everything we can to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and protect our staff, customers and associates.

Some of the recent steps we’ve taken at YPP include:

  • Halting any international and domestic business travel to minimise the risk of exposure
  • Halting visitors to our offices
  • Moving staff wherever possible to work-from-home and digital collaboration alternatives to minimise in-person meetings

To all our customers, please be assured that all orders will continue to be fulfilled on-time and to the highest quality, just as you have come to expect from our team.

Our business was built on its ability to deliver on orders of all different sizes at very short notice, and thanks to our strong stockholding and flexible working patterns, that continues today. In short, Your Print Partner is here for you.

We are in unprecedented times, and there is no doubt that we are all in this together, so we will offer complete transparency as this global issue develops over the coming days and weeks.

Your Print Partner production team

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.

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.

Wide-format printers at YPP

Your Print Partner is now seeing its largest ever volume of orders coming in, with more than 3000 orders shipping every week.

It’s our 7th Birthday!

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!”.

Cutting Edge Technology Arrives at YPP

Investing in the latest state-of-the-art print and finishing machinery has been key to YPP since the company was founded, and that dedication to investment continues as we can today announce the arrival of our new Kongsberg C series cutting table.

The Kongsberg C series is the first multifunction super-wide digital finisher for signage, display and packaging applications.

The versatility the Kongsberg C series brings enables our production team to finish a massive range of rigid materials including ACM, Foam PVC, Acrylic, Correx plus all our flexible, roll media too. The ability to add on more tooling options in the future further ensures that the machine will remain an integral part of our future expansion plans.

Take a look at what our new machine can do in the video below..

 

“We have been able to significantly increase our production output thanks to this new cutting table, which has already enabled us to win several new key contracts” said YPP Managing Director Stuart Maclaren. “For us however, quality is always key, and this machine has the raw strength required to process even the most rugged materials at high-production speeds without sacrificing finishing quality.”
