HISTORY & QUALITY
Colt Press was born in the 1980’s when methods and processes were more hands-on and printers were more directly responsible for the output of their machines. Nowadays the advance of technology has allowed all printing companies to be more efficient but in many cases totally reliant on technology.

¬  THE COLT MARQUE
At Colt, despite using all the latest cutting edge technology, we still see our printers as craftsmen who know what is necessary to achieve the best possible result. The Colt marque is a stamp of quality that is only given to a print job that we are satisfied it has met the required standard.

ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY
At Colt, we are fully aware of the impact our industry has on the environment and have a strict environmental sustainability policy in place. We print with vegetable based inks and only using low chlorine, biodegradable materials from forests managed for environmental sustainability.

All waste paper is recycled and chemicals we use meet the requisite environmental standards and after use are collected for safe disposal. We ensure that every aspect of our activities are conducted in accordance with sound environmental practices.

Our latest commitment to the environment is to the Woodland Trust Carbon Capture Scheme.
