Leeds Pressision breaks even

Wednesday, July 2, 2003

Leeds-based start-up Pressision has won enough business within its first two weeks to break even, thanks to some old classmates and a Komori Lithrone 426.

Founder of the five-staff firm James Taylors first port of call in the search for clients was his fellow ex-students at Bradford & Ilkley Community College, where he studied graphic design. Many are now running their own advertising and design agencies.

Following the delivery of the Komori two weeks ago, orders have varied from cheap and cheerful flyers to a 5,000-run 16pp corporate brochure. Pressision is aiming for a first-year turnover of 175,000.

Taylor went into printing after leaving college seven years ago. He has spent the last 12 months gearing up to launch the new firm.

Taylor said: At the moment our entire client list is from personal contacts. He added that his clients appreciated Pressisions ability, due to its low overheads, to experiment with different stocks and inks.

Taylor also believes his graphic design background has helped bring in new business.
