Pressision began life almost 20 years ago. The firm’s vision and mission was born out of the frustration of a group of graphic designers who “didn’t have a print production house that would experiment, try new things and be willing to say yes and then figure a way to make it happen”.

We are lucky enough that Lynne is our finishing department loves baking, and regularly brings in cakes, so we don’t often have biscuits. Our favourite of Lynne’s cakes are coffee and walnut, Guinness and chocolate and carrot cake. Maybe we need to kindly ask her for biscuits
