Read more about me

I’m Derek, and I guess you could say that printing has always been in my blood.

As a school child I would always be fascinated by my father and older brother’s involvement in the printing industry.

It seemed natural to follow them into the printing trade from school.

It was at the London College of Printing that my future path was set. A six year apprenticeship in Lithographic printing and platemaking gave me a thorough grounding in the trade and rewarded me with a City and Guilds. It was also a great experience for learning, working with others and growing as a person.

I’m a passionate individual. Some may say a perfectionist. If you are going to do a job, why not do it to the absolute best of your ability? I don’t believe in doing anything half-heartedly.

When my customers tell me that they love the end product or the service they’ve received, that’s what I love.

Creating and serving others is one of the greatest achievements in life and I do that every day. I’m a lucky man and have my customers to thank for that.

After my apprenticeship I worked for lots of different companies as I further built up my experience. I worked for Calibri Press, J Poole & Sons, KL Litho and others. I then worked as a Night Manager for Tower Litho for 15 years.

Around this time, I started to get the entrepreneurial bug. I was sitting one day at work and a thought came into my head. Maybe I could do this on my own?

Starting a business is not an easy decision. If you have a business yourself you’ll know it takes courage. This was my chance.

Could I do it?

In 1995 DP Graphics was born.

I realised that the printing industry was changing yet many others were not moving with the times. It was time to embrace new technology.

I started investing in top of the range Scitex hi-end image setting and scanning with dupont cromalin proofing, including special & metallic colours. I gradually built my customer base with hard work, dedication and by caring about every person that came to my business.

Of course, as time passed the digital advance progressed. In business we must all adapt or die. And so we did adapt by investing in in digital Cromalin and Fogra proofing then moving into digital printing and finishing.

The truth is, you never can tell how this industry is going to evolve. But, as long as we stay at the cutting edge with the best equipment, and always look to provide the very best service to our customers we will continue to thrive.

We’ve been around for 20 years, and we are here to stay, serving you to the very best of our ability.

Now I think that is enough about me. What about you? How can I best help you? Give me a call on 020 7252 3700 and let’s talk.

DESIGNERS: Bleed Marks Are Pointless.

When it comes to designing, we must always think of the end result, right in the beginning… This means applying all necessary bleed, the right sizing etc. But, when it comes to adding the necessary marks to the document, we know that’s where it gets a little confusing.   Bleed marks why do they exist?
