The ink division, produces matrix ink ribbons, photo paper and laser toner cartridges under the brand names "Lasting Impressions" and "Black Diamond" which are universally regarded as the premier source for compatible products. Whilst we are well placed to satisfy our partners’ requirements in both neutral and OEM packaging, much of our success can be attributed to our renowned brand names which are synonymous with quality. In many instances they are the preferred brand and dominate various markets. Few, if any companies are able to offer such a wide range and permutation of compatible products at highly competitive prices.

The printing division specialises in the production of high quality security printing.

Organisations such as Universities, Insurance Companies, Local Councils and Examination Boards feature amongst the customer base. Utilising the latest computerised technology for origination and printing, items such as tamper evident plastic bags, certificates, cheques, registration papers, examination question and answer papers in OMR format are printed to the most exacting standards.

The use of security substrates (with or without threads, watermarks), holograms and security inks (e.g. thermo chromic, solvent sensitive or magnetic ink) ensures the highest security features and offers customers the comfort of knowing that their documents have been produced to the most exacting and secure standards.

A bank of Miyakoshi Continuous printing presses allows for the production of millions of forms each month and the continual investment in the division offers substantial scope for future development. Security is at the forefront of the Company's policy. The production facility affords continuous on-site security, security vetting of staff, annual staff declarations of confidentiality, on-site incineration of all waste paper and the certified disposal of printing plates

The Company's philosophy of quality products supplied at highly competitive prices, coupled with speedy deliveries, has enabled it to enjoy unprecedented growth at a time when many others find market conditions difficult.
