Holmes the Printers

We like to think of ourselves as a Company from the Old School, still offering services and values which the founders of the Company held dearly over 80 years ago. The roots of our company go back to 1923, when the grandfather of the present owner set up his own business of printing and bookbinding, areas of particular expertise to Herbert Holme the founder.

For many years 3 of his children worked in the company and now one of his Grandchildren Richard Holme carries on the family tradition. Whilst we are very proud of our history, we are also fully aware that the world has changed massively over the years and in fact today's dynamic market place changes quicker than ever.


We have worked on the model of keeping the best of the 'Old Ways whilst encompassing modern techniques and methods, without which we could not remain competitive. We very much value our staff, most of whom have been with us for over 10 years, infact nearly half have been with us for over 30 years. In a similar way we offer a service to our clients which engenders a loyalty between us. Three of our biggest clients have traded with us for over 10 years, with our biggest client going back far longer, to a time well before our present owner joined the company in 1987.

The building has also grown steadily over the years as we have aquired further property adjacent to the original building.


This is the very essence of the company. We keep within our capabilities and only take on projects we know we can handle, thereby allowing us to offer that personal service which makes such a difference. We take great pride in the knowledge we have gathered from our clients, in other words we try and become experts at supplying the correct print requirements to fulfil our client's need at the right price and on time.

We also still trade with many suppliers from the days before Richard joined the company, for just the same reasons as above. Business can be very rewarding, and consistency of supplier to client chains is critical to this success.

Most of our services are performed in house, but if we need help we have a good portfolio of suppliers in all areas of print. For the majority of clients we offer the complete service from idea, through artwork to the finished product.
