The Shoreham Herald newspaper photographer arrived to take a team photo shoot on such a busy day it was a challenge to get a fraction of the team to stop what they were doing! However, everyone at Gemini Print is delighted to celebrate being awarded a Growth Grant of more than £100,000 to kickstart the purchase of a leading edge technology Heidelberg high-speed folder to enhance the speed and efficiency of the print finishing processes.

In addition to the Shoreham by Sea headquarters, Gemini Print has a further printing plant in Bristol to enable 24/7 secure multi-site backup and nationwide service plus operations in London and the North East.
