An Armagh business with over a twenty years of service in the city has seen its success soar and is now expanding with the opening of a new store – ensuring the printing needs of the whole county are taken care of.
Instant Print, will be a name known to many; the business has been operating out of Armagh Business Centre on the Loughgall Road for 16 years and is going from strength to strength.
And last month marked a milestone for the company, which opened its second store, at 102 Armagh Road in Portadown.
This step was an easy one to take for the print veteran and business owner David Elliott.
Speaking to Armagh I, he said: “We already supply business stationery and print to many businesses throughout the Portadown, Craigavon and Lurgan area but this way we are just that bit closer.
“I am originally from Armagh but moved to Portadown myself 15 years ago; I was driving past the new location every day and thought what an ideal spot for a second print shop as it was so easy accessible with great parking. The shop there will be run by my partner Jayne and Suzy two of experienced staff from the Armagh Shop.”
David has said that many people do not know of the business until they require their services as the Armagh shop is as prominent based in Armagh Business Centre and the new shop in Portadown will make them even more visible.
In this age of the internet ,this is a company which is continuing to grow, with a focus on quality good products and great customer service.
Said David: “A lot of people are becoming more savvy in artwork design, but for many that is not an option, and even if you think you have created great artwork many times it does not arrive from online printers the way they expected. People like to see and hold print in their hands and get some advice and that’s where we specialise.
“We give people the chance to see what they are getting and have developed a level of trust with many businesses over the years.”
The company pride themselves as problem solvers, a title David takes very seriously.
“When ordering online nowadays, you are looking at a three-day turnaround but call into our store and we will be getting the item to you either the same day or the next if this urgency is needed.”
From business cards to banners, booklets to vehicle graphics, over the last decade and a half Instant Print has been tried and tested by the population of the whole county, this is sure to only continue with this expansion.
