Team

Our team of 70 people work hard day and night to ensure that not only we remain the best at what we do, but that we leave each of our clients feeling like they want to come back for more.

Without them we’d be nothing. Each one is handpicked to not only ensure they have the right attitude and sense of pride in what they do to fit in here at the Stirland Paterson Group, but also that they have the ability and knowledge to keep us striding ahead in the design and print industry.
