About us

With over 25 years paper cutting experience, we know how to cut paper. Having started out in 1977 as general print-finishers - making up folders by hand - we invested in our first ram punching machine in 1991. Traditionally being used in the wet label industry, we recognised the potential of the ram punching machine to create stand out, high volume direct mail shapes. Since then we have continually invested in specialist paper cutting equipment. Today we are the UK's leading paper cutting experts with a broad portfolio.

Our technical development over the years has not stopped and at the same time as a committed family business we remain focused on our original values. We deliver a prompt and reliable service to print, marketing and manufacturing industries. We are here to turn your project into a stunning product.

Every day brings new shapes for us — we love a challenge and get a buzz out of making things happen. With your design and our know how, the possibilities for your creativity are endless.
