Established 36 years ago as a simple copy shop, we have the most up to date digital printing machine not only in the South West, but the UK.

Blackfriars Contracts is a Plymouth based company providing quality digital print solutions to businesses and public organisations throughout the UK.

Blackfriars were among the original pioneers of digital output having recognised its potential to provide quality print and huge savings. The business has maintained a high level of year on year investment to ensure that it leads in technology as well as in service, cost-effectiveness and quality.

At Blackfriars Contracts our aim is quite clear... "to use our collective experience and expertise to deliver quality print solutions that achieve optimum benefit for our clients. Anything less won't do!"

"Our current printing requirements are irregular and often needed in short notice. Blackfriars' ability to meet these has been second to none."

Our Technology

A programme of continual investment in the very latest technology has enabled Blackfriars to improve its range of products and services year on year.

In February 2015, we became the first business in the UK to take delivery of three print production machines from Ricoh, the world leaders in the digital production print market. Along with our gently revised brand, it heralds a new era of products and services, but still with the same personal, exacting and rapid service.

Ricoh C7100: Full colour production print. Prints at a speed of 80 copies per minute on weight up to 400gsm. This device also has a fifth colour, white or clear. Allows print onto coloured substrate.
