Safeguarding your business against day-to-day risks

Running a print business involves extensive and complex processes and having the right insurance in place can make all the difference should something go wrong.

Some ‘off the shelf’ policies don't always provide the right level of cover needed for the specific risks printers face, such as manufacturing processes. Also, it's not always possible to effectively tailor to cover print-specific liability risks like breach of copyright, libel and slander.

Whether your business is a commercial printer, packaging manufacturer, trade finisher, large format printer, label printer, or publisher, it makes sense to seek out specialist help to get the cover you need at a price that is right for you.
