The current turnover for the business is an advised 57,800 with a gross profit of 63%. We believe this could be increased massively with some advertising. The business currently has no advertising but does have a website With a small marketing campaign to businesses in and around Kettering, there could be a large increase in sales.

This business is available as a freehold or leasehold. The leasehold price would be an advised 87,000.

The business is currently run at a steady pace by our client and we feel the printers would highly benefit from a new owner with some experience. Our client would be willing to offer a hand over period to make sure the transition is smooth.

The website promotes products and services they offer. One of the promotions available is a business starter pack for 250 + VAT, this includes 200 business cards, 1000 letter heads, 500 compliment slips and 100 invoices.
