Almost Platinum!

20th year of providing award winning printed solutions. In those twenty years and from humble beginnings in a small industrial unit in Boldon, Tyne and Wear, Graham and James set up their own printing business. A very bold decision at the time but one that that has proved immensly successful. Over the years the loyal clients they started with and many new ones along the way have helped build the business to what it is now – a leading force in the UK print solutions market place.

It’s not just the fantastic partnership with their clients but the calibre of their staff and the investment of state-of-the-art equipment. It’s also the apprenticeship and recruitment schemes they provide, the training programmes they support and of course the dynamism and enthusiasm of their dedicated client services teams.

Here’s to another twenty years and keep an eye open for some fun things happening soon!

Heidelberg ISO 12647-2

Statex has been “Thinking in Colour” for twenty years now and when the ISO recognised accreditation for colour management was announced; Statex passed the test and gained the accreditation with flying colours! The award reinforces Statex’s commitment to colour management and providing the best quality print the industry can offer. With the ever increasing range of printed services at Statex like litho, digital and large format, it gives their clients the confidence that colours will be consistent across all media.

Thinking in colour!

With the help of a very talented designer and a local photographer, a unique piece of artwork was created to coincide with Statex’s twentieth anniversary. An artist’s creation of a “brain” was painstakingly crafted out of swirls of ink in bright and vibrant colours and then carefully photographed in the highest quality.
