Pre-pandemic, one of our largest areas of business was serving the vibrant student population, printing & binding creative books, producing graphics for end of year degree shows and so much more, not just for the local universities but nationally and occasionally internationally. Overnight (due to the pandemic), this came to an abrupt end and maybe won't ever come back - time will tell? However, in the midst of ‘lock-down’ emerged new customers in the form of entrepreneurial artists & photographers requiring very high-quality scanning, ‘Giclee’ printing and for some picture framing, as they started up their own new businesses, selling on platforms such as Etsy, as well as their own web sites. One of our most successful partnerships, (that’s come out of Covid), is doing all the printing, framing and packaging for: https://www.limited100.co.uk Our work for Limited 100 gets sent all over the world! If you have time to follow this link you will see a video on their website, partly filmed at Hayman Creative, with some of my team printing and framing. Last but not least, in the midst of Covid when all the staff were furloughed, it gave me chance to spend some time developing the company website. One area that grew from this time and continues to grow more than any other, is that of printing game boards, boxes, playing cards & counters etc. Utilising our skills & equipment in new ways, (plus some new investments), we have grown into becoming the UK's premier Game Board Manufacturer for short runs & prototypes.
Don't get me wrong - we still enjoy printing all the other areas of our business, such as display & exhibition, promotional publicity and gallery work. However, this type of printing is in a very competitive market, so it's nice to have discovered some niche product ranges. Our ethics, values & vision, that follow below, still remain true and through perseverance, acumen and a lot of hard work – the joy of running an SME goes on. Barry Hayman Director
