Berrington Press is a family firm, started by David in 1984 after moving with his wife and young daughters from Lancashire to Herefordshire. Over the years the business had to evolve and adapt to keep pace with the contemporary print industry. From printing with metal type to offset lithography, new technologies and changes within the trade came in quick succession creating fierce competition. After many years of successfully navigating the highs and lows of commercial printing David began to contemplate retirement and what he would do in his twilight years. Being a printer of the old school and having ink in his blood he found he couldn't give up printing entirely and turned his attention to renovating vintage presses in a bid to preserve the craft that he had learned many years ago. Three renovated machines later, plus an apprentice printer in the form of daughter Sarah, Berrington Press has come full circle. Now with a revived interest in "doing it the old fashioned way" the craft of letterpress printing has been enjoying a marked revival in recent years and by drawing on David's craft skills as a printer and vast experience of the print industry together with his clever and creative two daughters Berrington Press has forged a new future from it's own heritage.
