Colour Graphics was founded in 1980 by Steve Birch as a home-based curtain making business. Since then it has seen great transformation and is now a digital print operation with a yearly turnover of £1.5m. A family-run business, the company has always kept a close eye on the latest digital print technology and recently invested in a FabriVu 340 with Klieverik calendar, purchased from CMYUK. The 3.4m-wide FabriVu replaces an older Mtex 5032 Pro, and the company has seen immediate benefits in flexibility, speed and range.
Large format digital production company Rocket Graphics has recently announced considerable expansion to its Watford-based facilities, adding 6,000 square feet to the Croxley Business Park site.
