A family company
Hello – we’re Wells Printing,
a family business that has been
producing beautiful print for some
of the country’s most prestigious
brands, charities & environmental
organisations for over 25 years!
Established in 1993 in the beautiful rural city of Wells, in Somerset, we pride ourselves on our personal approach to your needs.
Spending 20 years surrounded by the Mendip Hills provided us with much inspiration and a drive to do things differently. Our love of the countryside and our care for the environment motivated us to try & become one of the country’s most environmentally responsible printing companies, something we feel we have achieved.

Steady growth over the years meant that, by 2011, we had outgrown our premises in Wells, so we relocated to an equally stunning location, just outside of Bath. We’re still surrounded by the countryside which is so important to us.
Moving to our brand new unit on the impressive Bath Business Park has enabled us to invest in the very latest state-of-the-art technology, offering you the very best in print solutions.

Your brand & our environment
We know brand consistency
is vital to you, we have the very
latest technology that enables
us to give you consistent colour
first time every time. Our highly
skilled staff understand this
technology & know how to
protect you & the continuity
of your brand.
Our brand new studio/pre-press department is equipped with the very latest chemical-free computer to plate (CTP) workflow, providing FOGRA-certified proofs and the best possible colour accuracy across coated and uncoated papers, from proof to print.
In September 2013 we installed our brand new 5 colour press, a Heidelberg Speedmaster XL 75-5-L. The press has a dedicated aqueous based coating unit which provides a premium finish on coated & uncoated papers, the press is also equipped with Heidelberg’s Drystar technology which enables us to handle sheets immediately without them marking, so we are able to produce your print incredibly fast without compromising on quality. We regularly turn work around in 24 hours from receipt of artwork to delivery.
Our press features Prinect Inpress Control.
Prinect Inpress Control automatically measures and controls colour and register.
Prinect Inpress control is integrated directly into the press, the measuring unit measures process colors, spot colours and register in the print control strip every 6 x sheets. Any corrections that are required are forwarded directly to the Prinect Press Center for auto adjustment. Conventional presses rely on the operator pulling random sheets out & scanning the colour densities. At Wells the guess work is taken out & you can rest assured that your colour will be consistent first time every time.
Prinect Inpress Control also helps to reduce paper waste as the press does not need to be stopped for either make-ready or monitoring of the production run.
We are incredibly proud to have built up long standing relationships with a number of the UK’s leading brands, we will always protect you & your brand.
