New beginnings

This site replaces an earlier website and will contain mostly new content. It’s powered by WordPress, which has the advantages of better archiving of content whilst being relatively easy to administer.
I’m still trying to work out exactly what the site should be about. Websites are tricky things for freelancers like myself; on the one hand it’s useful to have a site where people can see the work that I do, but on the other hand, I don’t want to compete against the magazines that I work for.
So it may take a while to settle down and hit its stride and I’ll be grateful for any feedback on it. Hopefully it will be an interesting read and over time develop into a useful resource.





Syndicate content

You can license the articles from Printing and Manufacturing Journal to reproduce in other publications. I generally charge around £150 per article but I’m open to discussing this for each title, particularly for publishers that want to use multiple stories. I can provide high res versions of images for print publications.

I’m used to working with overseas publishers and am registered for VAT with the UK’s HMRC tax authority but obviously won’t charge VAT to companies outside the UK. You can find further details and a licensing form from this page, or just contact me directly here.

Support this site

If you find the stories here useful then please consider making a donation to help fund Printing and Manufacturing Journal, either as a one-off or a repeat payment. Journalism is only really useful if it’s truly independent and this is the only such news source serving the print/ manufacturing sectors.

However, there are costs involved in travelling to cover events, as well as maintaining this site, not to mention the time that it takes to carry out research, check facts and interview people. So if you value this work, then please help to maintain it and keep it free to read.


Never miss a story – subscribe to Printing and Manufacturing Journal to receive an email notification every time an article is published here. It’s completely free of charge and you can cancel the subscription at any point without any hassle. There’s no need to provide any information other than an email address and subscribers details are not for sale so there’s no risk of any further marketing spam.
