High quality print production, creative design and targeted flyer, poster and magazine distribution across Scotland



With over 15yrs experience, we specialise in providing cost effective print and promotional solutions that deliver real results to brands, publishers, venues and promoters. Whether you require a weekly team of merchandisers to distribute magazines to commuters, posters/flyers to retail outlets or an effective Fringe Festival campaign, we can help and ensure a good ROI for your budget.



From discussing your ideas and design concepts to printing production and actual distribution on the street - we are unique in Edinburgh by offering all these services under one roof. Why go through the hassle of dealing with several different companies when you can rely on one to professionally deal with all aspects of your print and distribution campaign from start to finish on time and within budget.



As early pioneers of large scale flyer/leaflet 'batch printing' that is now common across the industry, we literally print millions of leaflets and flyers and assorted promotional material annually. In a crowded market place, we offer a fast, trusted and cost effective service, backed up by an accountable, knowledgeable customer service team that can advise you on the best solution for your needs.


It is vital that your design not only effectively communicates your message but does so better than everything else out there

Our team has over 15yrs of print and digital design experience, turning around high quality creative artwork to meet even the most specific of client briefs. Devising branding and promotional campaigns from scratch or developing existing ideas and branding you already have, we make sure the finished design works to communicate effectively with your target market.

Design charges start at a very reasonable £40 + vat per hour, with reprographics (minor changes to artwork, type etc) charged at £25 + vat per hour. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015

The Worlds largest arts festival

We got our first taste of what it's like to work in the non-stop hectic Fringe environment back in 2001. Back then we were called something else; of course the name may have changed but our experience, local knowledge and strong work ethic remains. This will be our 15th year helping promoters and performers get their message out across the city. Last year over 100 shows used our services; be it design, print or distribution. We offer a complete one stop shop solution - pick and choose what you want or leave us to do everything from designing and print your show flyers & posters to distribution of them in our shop stands or exclusively hand to hand on the Royal Mile or Southside. New for 2014, we have our exclusive Fringe Packs - a handy sized A5 pack which folds out to an A3 map of Edinburgh with all the main Fringe and Festival venues highlighted and inserts of all the best shows during the Fringe.

We are operating the official Fringe outdoor poster advertising scheme for 2015, bookings open in early 2015, please register below to receive updates.

(A3 or A2)
