Publishing & Web


Publishing & Web

Our Publishing and Web Division was created over 20 years ago, specifically to meet the needs of Publishers and HSWO printers.

These two sectors share a common need for a wide choice of HSWO products that meet quality and cost requirements. We work hard with our suppliers to ensure that we can always offer this choice.  However, they generally have very different service needs and as such we operate two distinct sales teams.


  •  The HSWO printers are served by dedicated and experienced staff in London and Warrington, each of whom has a considerable level of experience in this market.
  •  Our Publishing team, based in London, uses industry leading software (Paperman) to manage client stocks, provide MI and allow the customer the freedom to buy their own paper without the headache of stock management.


We pride ourselves on strong relationships with our suppliers which means we can offer you consistent supply, enhanced service arrangements and preferential pricing.

We are not owned by a paper manufacturer, but instead are part of Europe’s leading merchant Group so we can offer choice, flexibility and expertise on a wide range of papers.

We use our industry leading software to manage all of our customers stock:
