Printbridge is a trading name of Print by Design Limited.  We are managed and wholly owned by a private Christian family. The business commenced trading in 1995. It had its own in-house printing unit, but subsequently the realisation dawned that we could serve our customers far better by operating as print managers. As such, this activity has been successfully carried-out since 1998.

Since 2000, the business has been owned and run by the present management – see below. Our head office is located in Bodmin, Cornwall, and our clients are scattered throughout the UK & Ireland. Most business is conducted from the head office but we will meet with clients anywhere, as the need arises. Please let us demonstrate to you that in this era of PDF’s & other electronic files, our location really is no deterrent to successfully working with us!

The directors & primary points of contact are:
Chris Wallis – 30 plus years experience in the paper making and print industries.
Pete Walters – Happily using none of the things he learnt as a Civil Engineer at University!
Their other halves – Jan Wallis & Amanda Walters – behind every good man is a better woman.
In our free time, we enjoy the lifestyle that Cornwall provides – although we sometimes struggle to actually find time to enjoy all it has to offer!

Business Philosophy
Our aim is to run Printbridge in a distinctly friendly and personal manner, striving to attain the highest moral and ethical standards. We believe that we can combine these attributes with a level of professionalism rarely found today.

Undergirding this is a desire that all our business should be conducted in agreement with the basic biblical principles of honesty, truthfulness and accuracy. Therefore, as a private Christian family as well as officers of Printbridge, we believe that this same biblical standard ought to be evidenced in our business dealings. As a Christian family we rely daily upon the provision of God in our lives.

‘The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.’
Psalm 68:11

Environmental Policy
We take a well researched and practical approach to our business environment and practices. We take care to use as little resources as possible and buy eco-friendly products and supplies where practical to do so.

We do not agree with the media driven view that the paper industry is an environmentally damaging industry. Over 90% of all the trees felled for paper production within Europe are sourced from well-managed Scandanavian forests, where 3 trees are planted for every single tree felled. You could easily agree that the Scandanavian Softwood forests are making a significant benefit to the environment!

We prefer using companies that are ISO-14001 compliant. One key print partner in particular goes above and beyond with his environmental awareness by taking these additional steps:
