Our mission is to provide fast
& effective print, graphic design & advertising
Where did it all start?
Coast Print & Design was born in early 2018 with the mission to bring fast and effective print, graphic design, and advertising which was created for you.
My name is Rob and I am the founder of Coast Print & Design. It all started during my final year of the sixth form after a discussion with my business teacher within my studies with an idea for creating a small business which provided a fast turnaround and effective service for other small business owners, brands, charities, and events both in Dorset and across the UK.
At the age of 17, my first client was a local small charity called Hope AOK Rucksack Appeal which supports the homeless across Bournemouth. After realising there was a gap within the sector, I began the new project of my small business which supports other businesses and brands.
With my passion and drive for businesses, companies, and charities to have the best service print, design, and advertising services possible, Coast Print & Design soon became a success with clients including Bournemouth Borough Council, the NHS, LeAF Studio School and many more (and soon became alive).
Coast Print & Design is able to provide print, graphic design and advertising in suitable turnarounds and at affordable prices for any project or background.
Where we're going...
We've always believed strongly that the way we view and treat the environment impacts and the way we live and work and therefore we think it is important that everyone has the requirements to share the protection of our planet.
We have made sure to source and offer products to our customers that meet their environmental requirements and we are happy to provide eco-friendly print products including recycled paper options and eco-friendly inks. We are also proud to work with various delivery partners who also believe in being environmentally friendly and within bigger towns and cities across the UK, electric delivery vans are being rolled out to make your delivery as eco as possible!
We're committed to helping and supporting the environment where we can.
