New GCA Member Entwistle Group are sponsoring the 2021 GCA Conference and AGM. They are a welcome addition to our portfolio of Greeting Card Printers, and have a specific focus on the environment and sustainability. We fired off some questions to Mark Bell, Senior Account Manager to find out more about the company.
How long have you been a GCA Member?
At the time of writing, about 30 mins! We’ve been meaning to join for quite a while, but with the Conference coming to our doorstep this year we finally took the plunge.
What services do you provide that would be of interest to GCA members?
Here at Entwistle we can offer all things print, from short run digital print jobs like greeting cards through to wide-format exhibition and signage and everything in-between. We have 2 HP Indigo presses that are great for producing high-end digital print. These have the capability to print using white, clear and fluorescent inks also. As well as these we have 2 flatbed printers that can print on pretty much any substrate up to a depth of 50mm – acrylic, glass, wood, aluminium is all perfectly achievable. To finish off the department we also have 2 x CNC machines so we can cut to shape and router the print to any custom shape.
We are a full member of the FSC so can guarantee chain of custody.
We have been trading for over 120 years, still remain to be owned and run by the Entwistle family.
Are there any innovations in your field that you want to share?
We are super keen on our sustainability and are very proud of our ESG policy. Our premises are powered by 100% renewable electricity and we intend to be net-zero by 2024.
Who would you like to meet at the GCA Conference?
We would love to meet fellow people with a passion for print. We have invested heavily in both machinery, facilities, workflows and personnel to be able to turn our hand to any challenge.
You can meet Entwistle Group at the GCA Conference and AGM on 14th October 2021 in Manchester.
