Who are Centurion Graphics?

We are a company that is dedicated to offering an efficient service distributing high-quality bespoke printing plates. This has been our aim for 40 years! It all started off with the founder of the company, Peter, in 1980 buying some printing equipment from his brother in law. He installed it all in his shed where he printed business cards and invitations with his wife under the name Peter Hall Printing. In 1981, he started to focus his attention on manufacturing printing plates. He did this because he realised he needed to spend more time making the plates to ensure that they were a high enough quality.

In 1994, the company he founded 13 years before became Centurion Graphics. Now, we are constantly growing from Peter’s shed. After moving numerous times to accommodate new equipment and staff, it is looking like we may have to move again! Nevertheless, our aim will always be the same, manufacturing all kinds of printing plates and other pre-press supplies worldwide.
