Experts in colour litho printing, digital short run, large format and specialist print finishing. We’re called Crucial Colour for a reason. We know how important colour is for making sure your organisation represents itself correctly.

Colour is crucial for being on-brand and producing material that reflects your company. We are fastidious and meticulous with our colour matching, proofing though to delivery.

Over years of experience we have a wealth of knowledge when it comes to materials and unusual stocks, die-cutting, specialist finishes, metallic and unusual inks. We work on brochures, stationery, magazines, newsletters, books, flyers and leaflets, folders, catalogues, short run personalisation. If there’s something here we haven’t mentioned, just call us to ask – don’t assume that we don’t do it – we just thought a long list might get a bit dull!

We are trusted as part of your team. We want you to think of us as an extension of your company. Good relationships are crucial to a quality service – we’d like to think that we have them with ‘all’ of our clients. Here are a few quotes from satisfied customers who’ve we’ve become part of the team with.

“Having been asked to give a recommendation for Crucial Colour, what do I say. Great service, excellent quality and a dedication that I thought had been lost a long time ago in the print industry. Crucial really care about my jobs and I care about Crucial which is why I am pleased to recommend them. As designers, the time and effort we spend on projects means that we should only place jobs with printers that have gained our trust. In my case Crucial have done so time and again over the years.”

Peter Huck
Graphic designer

“Crucial Colour consistently provide us with an exceptional quality of print, and are always happy to advise or provide friendly customer support. They are willing to go the extra mile to help us to meet our deadlines, with quick turnarounds and the team always keep us in the loop throughout the production process. Our awards programme is a specialist print job, and last year we were let down at the last minute by another printer that couldn’t guarantee the quality of printing we needed. Crucial Colour took the job on fearlessly and delivered on time, despite the short notice. I would fully recommend their services!”

Bekki Griffiths
Marketing Executive, IMI Awards (part of the Institute of the Motor Industry)
