Print Companies in Manchester
As the first city in the world to become industrialised, it is perhaps no surprise that Manchester was also the first to build a railway station. In 1719 Manchester’s first newspaper was printed, and printing companies such as ours here at Minuteman Press continue to play an important role in the city today. Many print company services exist in Manchester in order to meet the requirements of its thriving businesses.
Manchester was founded around a Roman fort but the city only really grew as a result of the Industrial Revolution, when it became renowned for its textile manufacturing and was named “Cottonopolis” by the Victorians. Its canals formed a useful transport system and the building of the Manchester Ship Canal in 1894, linking the city to the sea, meant that ships from all over the world could reach Manchester.
While business card printing and stationery printing are useful for commercial organisations, they are also useful for the owners of Manchester’s shops, cafés, bars and entertainment venues. The city is known for its musical history, with famous bands such as The Smiths, the Happy Mondays and Joy Division having their roots in Manchester.
Still known for its vibrant night-life, Manchester’s numerous clubs continue to please music lovers, even though its most famous night-club, the Hacienda, closed down in 1997. Classical music lovers should visit the Bridgewater Hall, Manchester’s stunning classical music concert hall. Printing services such as banner printing, flyer printing and poster printing are essential to inform people about the city’s exciting evening venues.
Since the ’60s, Manchester’s economy has moved from manufacturing to service industries, but a number of manufacturers are still based in Manchester, providing work for brochure printers and stationery printers, and requiring services such as catalogue printing and digital printing. While redevelopment has left Manchester looking architecturally glamorous and futuristic, its heritage and many of its splendid industrial buildings remain.
