All About us
A Brief History
Back in 1992, after serving his apprenticeship and working as a printer for 12 years, Glenn Felton, with financial backing from his Dad (thanks Dad!) took the keys to his first office, his Mum’s garage (thanks Mum!).
Back then printing flyers for the local nightclub (R.I.P. Caribbean Club!) and stationery for local businesses kept Glenn busy.
Today, the FMP ‘family’ (many of them are family) has grown to over 20 people currently working in premises of 10,000 sq ft in Basingstoke. Big enough to cope with large and complex jobs and small enough for ‘Print Dad’ Glenn to personally keep an eagle eye on everything and still be contactable for advice and a cheeky chat!
Not forgetting our past. We still love producing a few hundred business cards and ‘Happy Hour’ flyers, but now you will also find us printing thousands of corporate brochures on our 6 colour press, 2 and 4 colour work will be running on presses in the room next door. Walk through another door and Paul will be pressing the button on our digital presses. All the time we are finishing, and boxing up, to keep our couriers in business, and our clients smiling. Phew!
Whatever we do...
We do it well! It’s a no brainer as far as we are concerned. Call us old fashioned. We are passionate about all things print and looking after our customers. Believe us... even when the job has left the building we are still on the case. Ask us. There are stories to be told about the lengths we have gone to!
We all love a long lead time, but if you’ve left it a bit late to meet a deadline, been given a project with unrealistic timescales... let’s have a chat and see how we can work it out - together. If we can’t do it well, we won’t do it. But that hardly ever happens.
