We're here to create eye-catching designs, bring ideas to life and transform them into something real to engage your audience
Our Motto is "You can achieve anything as long as you put your mind to it!"
That motto is extremely relevant when you consider that Academy Print and Design was borne out of a desire of a couple of X Royal Navy ratings to work together but who had no background in design or print. That was over twenty years ago but through hard work, good advice and a bit of luck they have created one of the leading design and print companies in East Lancashire. Initially starting off supplying print services only, they have slowly added more to their portfolio of print and design services and now employ over 30 people and have formulated professional partnerships with other companies through the Media Village that have enabled them to offer far greater services, from graphic design, short run digital print, lithographic print, wide format digital print, web design, mail fulfilment, and PR and marketing services.
The Academy Directors are all very much hands-on, working within the business and not just on the business. The two youngest Directors, Michael and Aaron, have both worked their way up through various roles within the company and are real success stories and are now driving the business forward.
Our Sales Team
We have several experienced sales consultants who are able to walk you through the path of getting the service and product that you want. They can come to see you at your premises or alternatively can deal with you from a distance if you prefer. They will go through the whole process from start to finish showing you proofs along the way and discussing the various options on sizes, materials, finish etc. They will always provide written quotations on request and will explain all the charges to you so as not to get any hidden surprises which seems commonplace in our world to quote you a price and then load it up with the extras.
Our Admin and Customer Service Team
These are the people who you will probably have most contact with. They marshall the jobs through the design and print process from start to finish. Their aim is to ensure that you are consulted and informed just as much or little as you demand. They hate having disappointed customers and work hard to prevent this.
Our Creative Team
Great design shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg and here at Academy we have a team of 8 graphic designers who are able to create stunning designs that communicate the image you want and project your unique selling points the way you want without over inflated prices to justify over inflated egos. We have our feet firmly on the ground and believe in offering fair prices across all aspects of the business, including design.
Our Production Team
This is where some of our most experience people work. Production is about attention to detail, professionalism, time served skills and experience, and we are not to be found wanting. We have specialist in all aspects of production, digital print, lithographic print, wide format print, and print finishing.
