Happy 30th Birthday PlatinumHPL!

Posted in: More News,

How do you sum up the last 30 years?

This is just a small taste of what PlatinumHPL has been up to over the last 30 years. We would like to thank all of our customers and suppliers for the support they have given us over the past 30 years.

We've got some exciting things planned for the year ahead, keep an eye out.

We hope you enjoy taking a trip down memory lane with us, here's to the next 30 years!  If you would like a more in-depth view of what we have been doing click here.


In the beginning...

In 1988, Platinum Print opened its doors with two staff, David and Marina (pictured). 

Marina (who was 8 months pregnant with Samantha and had two year old Anthony in tow) was the accountant, designer and delivery person.

David was the salesman and printer. With a £5,000 loan from Barclays and a trip to an auction in Derby of British Rail's ex in-plant print department's equipment, Platinum Print was born.


The fashions continued to be just as good, along with the hair styles and we moved into the 90's with staff trip to the dry ski slope.

Paul Plummer and Jane Williams joined the Platinum team and continue to work here as our longest serving employees.



The naughty's kicked off with the introduction of shifts for the production team.  We became ISO9001 accredited, as well as being awarded the Investors in People award.

There were many sporting and charity events that took place over the next 10 years raising lots of money for charity and keeping the team fit and healthy.


As we move into the last decade Platinum continue to grow from strength to strength.  The merger between Platinum and Harrogate Printing Limited was a great success with the coming together of two highly respected businesses.

Platinum turned 25 and celebrated with a staff trip to the Lake District, as well as many more sporting events for charity.

We are so proud with what we have achieved over last 30 years and continue to invest and develop our staff in order to provide the best possible service to our customers.

We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last 30 years customers, supplier and of course our staff.

Here's to the next 30!
