100+ Years of Experience

We didn’t choose a peacock feather as our company symbol on a whim.

It represents the fact that Thr3e5ive4our takes enormous pride in making your stories unfold in glorious colour. We love the opportunity to flaunt our stuff.

Our litho and digital presses work 24/7, run by a skilled team of operatives with, collectively, 100+ years of experience. Thr3e5ive4our’s detail-obsessed quality control ensures every piece of work leaving our premises is accurate, consistently printed and impeccably finished.

If you are a real print geek you can see our continually updated plant list here. But we find people prefer to talk to another person about how our companies can work together. After all, the best kit in the world is useless without the expertise to use it. We have the best people, innovative technology, all these accreditations and a can-do attitude…all under one roof.

Speak to one of the Thr3e5ive4our team today. We’d love to show you our true colours.
