Expanding our digital offering

We have been investing heavily in digital technology and have recently purchased a new digital printer, so we can print A4 documents in a landscape folded format.

This increases our capability to enable us to print this format quickly, cost effectively and on to a broader range of stocks. Not widely available in the print industry, so we hope this will give you more choice and better value for money when working with us.

To make sure we stay ahead in a fast changing market, we are also investing in an online portal which is coming soon. It will be a convenient way for our customers to order print remotely online giving our customers more control of print management and buying.

Bringing children’s books to life

Children’s author, Lee Ellis and illustrator Mark Dobson approached us at the end of last year to help them produce a rush order of their book ‘Charlotte’s Fall’.

‘Charlotte’s Fall’ is just one of a series of fascinating children’s books about ‘The-ings’; a building force that protects people from disease-causing organisms and substances. These unique stories were created by Lee who spent many years looking for the right person to help make his ideas come to life with illustrations. Mark and Lee began working together in 2004, publishing their first book ‘Simon the Fishy’ in 2016.

Having worked with Mark throughout his career as a graphic designer, he approached us when he needed an urgent print of his book. We printed the 43 page paperback book with a silk finish to bring the vivid and colourful illustrations to life.

Mark Dobson, commented: “The service we received from Wood Richardson was superb. Having worked with Wood Richardson in the past, I knew they were a printer I could trust. They were able to turn the job around in 24 hours and deliver a very high quality production.”
