Meet the Team

We’re all for automation and AI in the quest for the ultimate efficiency. But we’ll take some convincing that there’s no place for the combined experience of our print team who know the idiosyncrasies of paper and ink better than any algorithm we’ve seen. Add in a little youthful zest and creative inspiration and we’re confident you will feel the benefit of your print in expert hands.

I was delighted with the support and advice I received for design and printing; the quality is excellent and I’m going back for a reprint!

Why ‘Orphans’?

Established in 1873 when pioneering visionary Henry Stanley Newman set up the printing works to generate income for Leominster Orphan Homes and provide orphans with a trade – and, by extension, a future. We are very proud of our heritage so we are still ‘Orphans’ in honour of Henry’s vision.

Sustainability – it’s important to us.

We can help ensure your print is as friendly to the planet as possible, ideally carbon neutral.
We use papers from sustainable sources…
