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.
