Tony produces superb printing to a time he promises and at a price offering excellent value.

I asked Tony to produce two different cards for a new venture, to a tight timescale for important client and supplier meetings. The job was delivered in time, despite the tight deadlines and to an excellent standard.

Thanks Tony - your work is excellent and your service is designed to please."

Our Company have used 21st Century Print for some time now, our general day to day printing requirements have been handled with care and attention.

Just recently I was tasked with some bespoke requirements, Tony and his design team set to it and within no time I was reviewing designs and receiving samples to review. The outcome was fantastic, we couldn’t be happier."

21st Century Print have supplied our printed materials for the last five years.

They have always provided efficient, friendly service – but more than that, on several occasions have gone out of their way to ensure we receive the items we need at very short notice. Tony and Carol go above and beyond for their customers."
Sue Soley
Academy for Chief Executives

We act for a large portfolio of clients in dealing with their company secretarial and corporate legal compliance requirements which requires us to send circulars to shareholders, notices, accounts etc on their behalf.

We have used the services of 21st Century Print Limited for several years to deal with the printing and despatch of documents and throughout that time we have found them to be consistently efficient, reliable, and accurate even when completing tasks given at very short notice. In short, an outstanding level of service.

It gives me great pleasure to recommend them.

Telling the Truth, the Whole Truth and Nothing but the Truth

enter image description here

In 2010 my 25 year old son James died in the custody of Avon and Somerset Police. He had been detained under Section 136b of the Mental Health Act. There has been significant online coverage over the years, and the purpose of this article is not to tell that story but to explain how and why my experiences since then have had a profound effect on the way I see the world and how my values have shifted and how that has affected 21st Century Print’s relationships with its clients and suppliers. If you are interested in James’s story, this link is his family’s statement after his inquest in 2013.

James's death was a terrible and painful shock. What I (and the rest of James's family and friends) needed was answers- the truth and a commitment from those involved from his death that they would learn from what happened and make changes to prevent it happening again. In fact, we received a lot of corporate double-speak, feigned compassion and a State determined to avoid its agents being held accountable. This added deep insult to grievous injury. Here is an example of what I mean.

"We promise you a transparent investigation into James’s death. No stone will be left unturned and if any of our police officers were responsible they will be held to account" really means “Your son’s death is very sad but we really don’t want to have to deal with it and we will close ranks to make sure that the ball of truth gets kicked firmly into the long grass”.

Our campaigning work around James’s death is particularly relevant in this "Mental Health Awareness Week" but that is not the subject of this blog.

Evading the truth, spin, double-speak all get in the way of integrity and honesty. At 21st Century Print we don’t do that stuff. Ever. We are a print management company, and we have a lot of experience and we work incredibly hard in giving our clients the best possible service and value. If we can’t add value (and 99% of the time we can), we walk away.

When on the rare occasions something goes wrong, or we have difficult news for a client, we speak the truth and of course we tell our client about our proposed remedy. The client has trusted us with their printed communication and we are to be trusted. I am lucky that my business partner Carol has the same values. We sometimes advise a client against having something printed, if we do not believe that it is going to give the benefit intended. Making a profit is important to us but only in a way that does not clash with these values.

Perhaps, people in all walks of life could be more honest if we lived in a less litigious world, where people are too scared of being sued to be candid, especially when the stakes are high. I have never understood why insurance companies tell you never to admit liability in a road traffic accident for example. I can only say that telling the truth rarely really shames the devil, and if somebody cannot comment because of legal ramifications, then say nothing rather than tell a lie. In American terms, plead the Fifth Amendment.

This is an extremely serious first blog on our web page. I miss James very much and every day, but in some very peculiar ways, his death and its aftermath have given me a renewed sense of purpose and changed my values in a positive way. I wish he was still with us though. I always will.
