Meet Pete. Pete is a friend of the family (litterally) and the owner of Beacon Printers in Penarth, Wales. Penarth is my home town and i popped down for a two day visit just to meet up with Pete and discuss our incoming business venture with Cretacea (i also touched base with some relatives which was lovely following the nightmare of covid!).
Pete's business offers many types of printing but the type we will be using is his Lightographic service, a sustainable and green alternative to normal printing. In this day and age it feels like everyone "claims" to be green, but not everyone truly does choose the green option. There are thousands of products that don't that maybe you just don't notice. From Beacons site: Beacon Printers are one of just a handful of printers across Wales to offer a ‘green’ lithographic printing service, using a state-of-the-art chemical free, environment-friendly waterless printing system
By keeping things in house, in the family and local we save some costs but mainly we are able to offer a very "friendly" product to you that you know was made with love and with care.
Pete and Beacon have printed all the books produced under the previous "EZPainter" sub company "Paint.Play.Enjoy" and he is a lovely dude.
As more information becomes available regarding the printing process or production of the upcoming book we will share it.
The previous book produced by Beacon, slightly more of a very thick pamphlet, but the new one is going to be much larger (page count) with more content to boot as well as perfect bound and laminated. We are extremely excited at WW HQ.
