“We launched printed.com in October 2011 with just a couple of us working out of a small office – I had a background in both print and online advertising, and although people were talking about print negatively, I knew that if you could combine those two worlds, it was possible to build a successful business.
"The business has grown by 100 per cent a year in each of its two years of trading so far and I'd like to be doing £7m to £8m of annual sales by February next year. We've now got 20 of us working in our London office, plus another 30 or so at our print facility in Newcastle.
"We're always working on ways to differentiate ourselves from other businesses because we're aware that we're not the only ones doing this. For example, we've got a rewards programme where you can earn points with British Airways for buying our products.
“Long live print— we’re providing a service people seem to want.”
