I was involved in Foilink ( The National Foil Printers Club) since its inception and then was honoured to run the organisation for 7 years, advising foil printers across the country in all aspects of foil printing. We are still very much independent and offer impartial advice to anyone coming into the indusrty, especially on what type of machine is right for them , without pressure or any agenda to sell a particular make or model , just the one right for you. Over the years we have sold over 300 machines not only to the UK but all over Europe and the World as far as America and Australia.
We are now the only company to our knowledge in the UK to offer training on a wide variety of hand operated hot foil machines as well as provide both new and 2nd hand machines from all the British suppliers. We have a large number of industry contacts to help you with your business ventures and we are passionate and dedicated to you getting the most out of your business – this is where we can help you.
