Mercury Printing and Packaging & Bamforth Postcard Archive

A privately-owned family business using digital, traditional letterpress and hot foil printing as well as embossing, die cutting and packaging.

On our visit we will  learn about the history of the company and be led around the workshop to see old Heidelberg printers as well as contemporary printing machines and methods.  We will also be introduced to their archive of very un-PC PCs in the form of Bamforth Postcards from 1910.  Mercury have exclusive rights to reprint these iconic saucy seaside Postcards.
