Print Run was formed by Richard Milliken-Smith in 1991 as a print management company servicing numerous clients from all sectors of business with an across the board supply of print.
In 1996 Print Run started supplying promotional products to their existing and growing database of clients. They applied the same ethos and controls already exercised in print management and integrated the supply of Promotional Gifts to their bespoke computer systems. The similarity of supply was discovered to be very close and the sound understanding of print enabled Print Run to explore avenues that their competitors had yet to discover. A one stop supplier of Promotional Gifts and Print generated by most marketing campaigns proved to be beneficial to clients ensuring that corporate colours and styles were adhered to during supply. This service was quickly recognised by industry bodies.
