we have been around longer than the light bulb, the automobile and the telephone

Dornan’s was founded in 1848 by Thomas Dornan, a young entrepreneur with a dream of becoming the north of England’s premier print shop. Since then, we have developed with the changing landscape of printing technology, moving from hand and foot operated presses to the state-of-the-art printing equipment that allows us to handle any printing requirements.

Whilst the technology may now be different, our attitude to print remains. We stay true to that original, painstaking craftsmanship and attention to detail. And it’s this mix of pride, heritage, perfectionism and an innate understanding of what we do, that allows us to deliver a first-rate service and exceptional results each and every time.

DORNANS THROUGH THE AGES

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We take pride in every brochure, poster, display unit and more that we print. Our knowledge of print is second to none. Coupled with our customer focussed service, it means that we can advise to ensure you get a product that truly reflects your brand. Whatever your printing requirements, we have the capability, team and technology to deliver beyond your expectations.

With stunning print delivered for such household names as Warburtons, The BBC, Harrods and Superdrug, you can rest assured we’ve got you covered. And don’t think we only offer our tailored service to the big boys. Whatever the size of your business, in whatever industry, we have the capability to support you.

THE ENVIRONMENT

We acknowledge the impact our industry could have on the environment. That’s why taking care of the environment and acting responsibly is important to us.

Whether this means being fully aware of our carbon footprint, or helping our customers to reduce theirs through the services and products we provide. We are actively working towards the BSI standard ISO 14001[CP1]. This, along with our FSC® certification and use of vegetable based inks helps us to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

OUR MISSION

To be the premier litho & digital sheet fed printer within our defined market.

To develop, produce, and market our commercial printing capabilities with uncompromising quality with a commitment to excellence in both customer service and printed quality and conduct our business with the highest integrity.

QUALITY. EVERY TIME.

Finding a Print Partner that delivers outstanding results with exceptional client care can be a difficult task. Yet this is something we deliver with ease to our clients. Excellence in print is at the heart of everything we do.

As a printer with over 170 years experience, we trust in a refined toolbox when it comes to hitting the mark and delivering a first-rate service. It’s a simple formula. Polished expertise, quality equipment, and a passion for what we do.

This simple ethic is deeply rooted in the Dornans workplace. So, when we set about advising on the best equipment for a specific project, we employ all three standards of this principle. We use our heads, we call on our vast experience and we deliver gold standard results.

We’re constantly striving to implement improvements. Whether that’s introducing new technology or improving efficiencies, our team ensures that the quality of our print cannot be matched.

OUR EQUIPMENT

When it comes to keeping up with the times, our state-of-the-art equipment enables us to lead the way.

With two litho presses, three digital presses and two Digital flatbed UV presses we have everything our clients need to effectively deliver on a huge variety of projects. However, it is not just our equipment that sets us apart. Our first class service is delivered by our skilled craftsmen and women. Our team have vast experience between them and are perfectionists who are passionate about print. Its this combination of talent, technology and an obsession about what we do that makes us stand above the rest.
