Our beloved Amber has been around since 1956 which means that we have a wealth of empathy for the challenges our clients have had to face over the years! As print production evolves at a rate of knots and techniques become more complex and competitive, we have learned and adapted to enable us to offer you the highest quality in everything we produce. That’s the most important thing to us about what we do – combining up to date print knowledge with a deep understanding of client needs.
So we’d like to introduce you to our super friendly management team who are all well versed in design and print and incredibly passionate about customer service and delivery.
We breath, eat and sleep print and have been working together for so long that we actually feel like we’re part of the original Amber forefathers!
