Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established and busy printing business in Paisley, Scotland.
The business was established by our client in 1988 and is only now being offered to the market due to our client's desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business operates 5 days per week and generates an excellent turnover in the region of £154,000 with a gross profit of approximately 22%.
The print centre provides the following services, photocopying, digital printing, art, design and typing services, t-shirt and other fabric printing, sublimation printing of mugs, vinyl cutting for fabrics and small signage etc. short run finishing, padding, stapling and stitching, digital gold and silver printing, wide format prints and photographic canvasses.
The factory provides the following services, any work from the shop that may be easier or more economical to do at the factory, general commercial printing, NCR book, pad or set production, numbering and perforating, folding, side or saddle stitched book work, short run perfect binding, die cutting, creasing and embossing, thermographic business cards, guillotine cutting and finishing, wide format printing, laser engraving and photographic canvasses and framing.
The business has built up an enviable reputation within the area for the high quality of the goods and services offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.
We feel there is tremendous scope to increase the turnover and develop the business further, as this is the only business of its kind within the area and if our client was not looking forward to retirement, he would have looked into opening another shop in a nearby town to boost the business further.
This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this thriving and profitable business to the next level; therefore early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.

Greenlaw Graphics Ltd occupies two substantial premises, ideally located within the historic town of Paisley in Renfrewshire, Scotland. The Print Centre is situated within the town centre on the very busy Gauze Street, therefore the business benefits from a very high volume of footfall and passing trade, as well as ample on-street metered parking facilities. The 'Factory' is located approximately ½ mile from the town centre on Violet Street. We are advised that the shop is rented on a long lease and the Factory is owned outright.
Paisley is the largest town in the historic county of Renfrewshire in the west central Lowlands of Scotland. The town is situated on the northern edge of the Glenniffer Braes, straddling the banks of the White Cart Water, which is a tributary of the River Clyde. The most noticeable building of Paisley is its medieval Abbey, which is in the centre of the town and dates from the 12th century.
The areas of the properties are well served by the public transport system, with bus stops within easy walking distance. The nearest railway station is Gilmour Street, which is just over 5 minutes' walk away. The area is also well served by the A-roads, with both the A761 and A726 being in close proximity, which link to the national A-road and motorway networks.
