We’re not just printers – we’re an indispensable part of your team. Whether your project is large or small, we are always here to offer advice and assistance. Please call us to discuss your requirements.
Can we? What if? Many of our larger print programmes start with a simple question.
We enjoy trialling new materials and challenging our technology with demanding print specifications. Please call us to run through your ideas. We are always happy to help with prototyping and sampling your initial concepts. It’s how some of our best projects started.
Strategic project management
Flexible. Resourceful. Dependable. Our project management team will advise and guide you through every stage of a project. From site surveys and artwork, to delivery and installation.
We might have one of Europe’s best-equipped printing plants, but we also recognise the importance of implementation. We can carry out all the relevant health and safety actions – such as risk assessments and method statements, while ensuring that an exceptional product is delivered on time.
Extraordinary images. Bespoke Print. Surface View is an exciting and unique design service inspired by image, powered by VGL. Surface View search out fabulous, famous and fun images from a uniquely eclectic array of sources. We then create beautiful bespoke interior prints at a specification to perfectly suit each individual space.
VGL is unique in being able to offer Surface View to our commercial customers, whether as an unparalleled image resource, or as consultant and collaborator for pioneering print projects.
Our expertise within our field has led us to work with a number of prestigious galleries, museums and artists. We feature images from the V&A, the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery, fascinating finds from the Natural History Museum and the National Maritime Museum as well as works from designers such as Rana Salam and Ella Doran. We’ve curated collections from Marvel Comics, Getty Image Gallery, Haynes Manuals, and the best of kitsch from Wayne Hemingway’s Land of Lost Content archive. And so much more. All of our Surface View imagery is digitally re-mastered from original sources to ensure file quality can be sustained even with the demands of large format printing.
But that’s by no means the whole story. We have a long history of collaborating on projects with designers and architects, and we provide an ever-evolving range of specialist services and products. Our clients see us as an image consultant for their projects, a key technical partner in the creative process, and a continual source of new ideas. Projects have included presitigous hospital and college refurbishments. We supply bespoke murals and prints for the Hotel sector. We’ve collaborated on creative property projects with Wayne and Geradine Hemingway. And have produced quirky and talked about print for Liberty’s, London and The Conran Shop, Paris.
