Print Companies in Northampton
The market town of Northampton is located 67 miles from London. It has grown substantially since the 1960s due to its planned expansion as one of the designated New Towns, which were created to provide extra housing in the years following the War. Northampton’s industrial history began with footwear, and it was renowned for the manufacture of shoes and boots. Later, the economic focus changed to engineering, manufacturing, brewing and food processing and printing companies here have played a major supportive role helping local businesses grow.
In recent times, companies concerned with finance and goods distribution have become the main businesses in Northampton. In order to meet their needs, printing companies such as our Minuteman Press are in demand, producing digital business cards in addition to traditional business card printing. Stationery printing and banner printing are also required by businesses seeking to promote themselves in Northampton.
Although famous brands such as Barclaycard and Schweppes now have offices in the town, Northampton is still known for producing leather goods, providing a link with its shoe making past, and a small number of shoemakers still remain in the area. Now, the latest digital printing technology opens up many possibilities for even traditional businesses to advertise their services.
Northampton’s old market square still exists and is one of England’s largest. Now it has competition from out-of-town shopping centres such as the Weston Favell Centre. Retail businesses can reach out to potential customers through flyer printing, poster printing and even postcard printing. POS printing can also be used to attract attention at the point of sale, when the customer is at the checkout.
Culture in Northampton is provided by the Northampton Art Gallery and Museum, with an exhibition of footwear through the ages. The former Fishmarket has been converted into a space with a café, studio and shops as well as exhibition spaces; musical performances, workshops and other community events take place there, with all of the necessary advertising keeping print companies busy.
