Our Story


'Highest growth in its first year'

Anne and Graham Hollway have owned this business for upwards of 35 years, starting as Prontaprint franchise in Edgbaston and over the years the centres grew their reputation from a server to the small business with copy shop image to become an established and recognised professional design and print centre.

 As our standards continued to rise, we purchased a second franchise in 1988 and Prontaprint City Centre was born! The turnover rocketed in its first year! This was achieved by Graham going out selling.

Key accounts opened were The Copthorne Hotel, The Grand Hotel, The Midland Hotel, Sabre Leasing, Arthur Andersen and KPMG, none of which would have come into a Prontaprint Store. At the end of their first year we won the Prontaprint award for ‘Highest growth in its first year’.

We realised that we had outgrown our franchise and managed to extract ourselves from it, becoming InkTree in 2008.

In 2017 we were offered a marvellous new opportunity to take over a signage business, Brindley Design and Print. We decided to move from Edgbaston to our current premises at 95 Moseley Street, Digbeth where we can now offer our customers a full range of design, printing and signage products from an industrial unit.

InkTree are ever evolving. Whether that be printing QR code business cards; making it even easier for anyone to learn more about your business, helping you refresh your brand with our expert team of designers or upgrading our equipment to ensure the best possible service for you...

the future is bright and we are ready for it!
