About us


Swan Print is headed by David Lawrence who directs the business day-to-day with the help of a small management team. The business opened in 1982 located in small premises in central Bedford and expanded over time taking on more customers and staff. In 1996 Swan Print took an ambitious step and moved to a large 25,000sq ft factory on the main industrial park on the edge of Bedford. David used this opportunity to relocate both Swan Print and his typesetting & pre-press company, Lawrence Graphics, to the new location.

Swan Print has a solid reputation locally for technical excellence, great service and rapid turnaround. We offer services to a range of customers including Councils, NHS, schools and private companies. Swan Print also offers a confidential trade printing service to other print customers.

Swan Print has assembled an impressive collection of print and print finishing machines. Services range from digital print production, through eight and ten colour B1 presses to a Man Roland 16-page Heatset Web Offset press. The team are all long-serving, skilled employees who have grown up with the business and enjoy working on the range and variety of equipment used. The business operates on a standard day-shift pattern Monday to Friday, giving it the capacity both in terms of staff and equipment, to step up the length of working hours as demand dictates.
