Give us a brief overview of your business
Newton Press is a print company with a unique history. Back in 1963 our young founder, Syd Howarth started up during the days when design and print was just emerging from the dark ages. His vision: to create really great Design and Print. Syd’s three sons now run the business each with individual expertise.
Over the years Newton Press has grown by being techno geeks, embracing the latest design, pre-press and print technology. We love our toys because we can print faster, better, cheaper and more environmentally friendly for you, us and the planet!
Nearly five decades on, our County Durham operation has some great kit, including two flagship world's best environmental friendly presses. Next to these fantastic presses we operate Heidelberg's and a variety of digital and large format machines. So if it’s ink on paper that you need - we have the solution ready to rock and roll.
Newton Press publish and print Newton Aycliffe's own local weekly community newspaper "The Newton News" which claims to be the first "FREE" newspaper in the United Kingdom.
The company specialises in General and Commercial Printing, offering a comprehensive range of products and services including general printing, business stationery, wide format printing, rubber stamp manufacture, screen printing, magazine and book production.
Customers come first and we strive to meet their requirements and to keep our prices very competitive. Our representatives are available to call and advise on any printing work required.
We are constantly upgrading, expanding and adding new machinery adding new technology as it is introduced. Our latest acquisitions include a colour digital printing facility for high quality colour with exceptionally quick turnarounds at reasonable prices including a new Karat 74 four colour digital print, which is an environmentally friendly machine using no chemicals in the print process.
Newton Press has achieved the ISO14001 quality mark and is working with the FSC (Forestry Service Commission) which enables the company to help the environment. We ensure all the paper we use is supplied from sustainable sources
