"Over the past few years, we have developed our internal sign shop. Catering for ongoing demand from both external and internal customers, this growth has resulted in the need for additional machinery to fulfil this demand. Your Print Specialists were the most competitive supplier of the machinery required which was also backed up by a superior support service.

The overall service from YPS is very professional and yet very competitive. They will go out of their way to help every time. We also feel all the members of the staff are very polite and again very helpful.

Well done to all."
