This innovative technology allows business to create three-dimensional CAD drawings of objects and then print these to produce actual physical objects. This new technology is already proving extremely useful to aerospace companies who wish to produce an example or prototype part without going through the process of fully manufacturing one. The company who will be dealing with this is [Read more]

Chelmsford, unlike other UK towns bidding for city status, are not going down the route of spending huge amounts of money to get their bid [Read more]

These plans have divided both the corporation itself and audiences, as the move is viewed as being somewhat controversial. The plans to move a significant portion of the BBC’s headquarters operation to the UK media city in Salford near Manchester has created a similar divide. However, local people in Cardiff are welcoming the new drama village as it is viewed as a positive, progressive move by the BBC and could boost [Read more]

A publishing company that branded itself ‘The People’s Publisher’ has recently gone bust, crushing the hopes of young artists and writes at a Loughborough high school who had expected to see their work in print in the near future. Forward Press, a publishing company which ran competitions in schools across the UK had promised to publish writing and artwork from pupils at Humphrey Perkins High School in Loughborough. However, because of unpaid debts, the company went into liquidation. Many people can experience similar problems with large, global printing companies. Loughborough schools and businesses looking to self-publish books often find it much more reliable and more convenient to use a local company for book or catalogue printing in Loughborough.
Forward Press has since been bought out by one of its former owners under a new trading name. However, it is unlikely that any previous customers will use the firm after this latest debacle. Many schools, organisations and charities – including the Royal British Legion – had paid or donated money or work to Forward Press in return for print and publishing jobs that were never fulfilled. Many of those who let down are now turning to local printing companies for their brochure, book and catalogue printing needs. By using a company that has been recommended based on its reliability rather than just choosing one that has a prominent position in the market or a big body of work behind it, customers are more likely to receive what they pay for as opposed to being disappointed.
