If your print business is relying on a standard commercial insurance policy, rather than a product designed for the print sector, you may be leaving your livelihood exposed to unnecessary risks.

Off the shelf insurance policies can sometimes fail to cover risks that are associated with your industry, such as manufacturing exposures and print-specific liability risks such as breach of copyright, libel and slander.

Whether your business is a commercial printer, packaging manufacturer, trade finisher, large format printer, label printer, or publisher, you could benefit from specialist help to get the right cover in place to give you peace of mind.
