Since 2015 we have printed over 2,000,000 prints and processed over 180,000 films. We are now established and profitable, averaging £10,400 EBITDA per month (to y/e October 2018). We have high levels of customer loyalty with over 3,200 customers making repeat orders - many making 20+ orders. Key to our success is our experience, expertise and our specialist facilities. Some are custom and uniquely built for us, enabling efficiency, excellent margins, and great value for customers - without sacrificing quality.

Our facilities and expertise have enabled us to capitalise on the trend of mixing traditional with digital technology, and recent growth in analogue and hybrid photography. The ever-increasing quality of digital cameras translates into demand for the ultra-high quality, no-ink print output that we deliver with ease.

Our immediate opportunities for growth include further penetration of Professional, art and discerning consumer photographic print market. Investment will enable a website overhaul, giving us the digital route-to-market we need, create more production space and increase capacity, accelerating our growth.
