In the print industry, it goes without saying that the loss of critical equipment through unscheduled or unforeseen breakdown, accidental damage or operator error can have a serious impact on your business. 

Increased costs to fulfil orders, reduced capacity and the cost of repairs all add to day to day operating costs in an industry where profit margins can be under significant pressure.

Insurance can play a vital role in mitigating these impacts, helping to cover increased costs and getting the business back to normal quickly.

When considering your insurance, it’s important to make sure wordings and cover limits are appropriate by selecting cover that is specifically designed for the print industry.  Otherwise, you could find yourself exposed by inadequate insurance at a time when your business depends on the outcome of a claim.
