Bought some lino printing bits from here. Perfectly packaged, arrived undamaged, prompt and actually helped with some advice on some new techniques. The more specialist tools really made a difference to my work.

    Brilliant and went extra mile. I had a delivery issue (not their fault) and Hickman Design totally followed up saving a Christmas present for me in time with just a week to go, sending me a new product in the post.

    Really appreciated that extra mile and the printing product was ace.
