Geoff Neal Group
7 Pier Road
At Geoff Neal we are proud to have been setting the standard for brilliant print since 1976.
FORTY YEARS OF EXPERIENCE
The combination of old-fashioned family values, state of the art technology, hard-earned experience, expert knowledge and a passion for our clients is what we bring to every job. Combined with state of the art technology and cutting edge innovation we have created, what we think, is a unique proposition – an organisation big enough to take on the challenge, but small enough to care about the result.
FULL SERVICE PRINT
We have invested £15m in technology and infrastructure for one reason only: to serve our clients better. The growth of our business is driven by experience, innovation and a dedication to our clients and the challenges they face.
Because we’re a family-run business, we focus on building close partnerships with our clients by providing personal service, creating value at every stage of a project. We’re proud to be a team of creative print specialists, in every sense of the word.
We are design for print experts
At Geoff Neal we provide a unique combination of design and creativity mixed in with manufacturing knowhow and expertise, meaning that we can deliver a successful project right from the beginning.
We have the knowledge and innovation to deliver technical and strategic recommendations, leading to outstanding results for your brand.
Our teams offer impressive creative talent, combining client, agency and print experience. Based in our Central London studio, we specialise in design, copywriting and artwork, with a strong focus on photography as well as web design and build.
Creativity is at the heart of everything we do
Our team has produced beautiful, inspirational design and content that has pushed boundaries and delighted our clients. By tailoring our award-winning thinking to each individual brand and brief, we are able to offer a personal and insightful approach that sets us apart from our competitors.
Collaborating with clients across the globe, we work using the world’s most recognised creative software, systems, technology and media; supplying the tools and experience to meet every creative challenge.
As creative print specialists, we help our clients realise the value of ideas. Whatever the material, format, finish or technical solution, we’ll help you create the most eye-catching and effective results.
It’s this inventive approach, delivered for every scale of brief, that makes the crucial difference.
Print perfection since 1976
Print is in our blood. We print with passion, continually seeking to make every piece of print brilliant.
Nothing gives us greater satisfaction than making our clients happy, seeing the finished product exceeding their expectations, pulling the rabbit out of the hat and delivering the near impossible. It’s what we do time and time again. Pushing the boundaries and saying yes, it’s why we exist.
Over the last few years we have invested over £6.5 million in three brand new Heidelberg XL presses, the latest studio and pre-press technology, finishing equipment and also property.
According to Heidelberg we now have one of the top ten most modern pre-press studios and press halls in Europe. But this means nothing to us without the continued satisfaction of our clients and the constant stream of brilliant print that goes out of our doors.
Producing brilliant print is all about building partnerships with our clients.
Every client benefits from our extensive support framework at every stage, designed to guide them through all the creative, technical and financial considerations from start to finish.
The proof of this partnership approach is that we have over 60% of our clients working with us for more than 17 years and one has been with us for 37 years. We work hard every day to go that extra mile, to be available and flexible and to prove ourselves time and time again.
Our approach builds trust, supports invention and empowers our clients to produce the most creative work that is always cost effective. Although our first answer is always yes, we’re not afraid to say no if it challenges the status quo and may deliver a better result.
This collaborative and honest approach has won us and our clients many industry awards — a fact they we’re immensely proud of, especially as it represents creative and commercial success for our clients and brilliant print for us.
Unique Consultant Services
Our manufacturing has always been, and always will be, at the heart of our business. However, rather inadvertently, through our natural collaborative and open business approach, we have been offering a consultancy service for years.
We believe that our experience, knowledge and approach have created a unique Consult offering that will benefit our clients.
Expertise coupled with creativity
So what is different…We offer our clients joined up thinking from concept to delivery. Our knowledge has been earned and is held within our business.
We offer a tailored and bespoke service for all of our clients. We don’t have a minimum spend and we don’t need a contract – but if you want to award us one then we’ll happily accept!
We combine the best of design and creativity with manufacturing expertise to ensure that the answer to a brief is brilliant, efficient and deliverable from the start. No time wasted, no big u-turns, no nasty surprises. Too often good ideas are lost because the ability of how to make the idea real is missing.
Honesty And Transparency
We have additional industry specific knowledge about new techniques and technology, substrates, data, postage (UK, European and Global) and the environment.
And lastly we work with complete honesty and transparency. We will never take a brief and then engineer the design to fit our manufacturing processes in order to make a quick buck. The brief is always answered on merit and what we believe will give the best results.
We are experts in the retail field. We use our knowledge of manufacturing and process to help develop ideas from concept through to competition.
Our client base includes independent retailers through to global brands and we provide a vast range of services including design, print, distribution, storage and project management.
