Print brand restored to City of London

Delivering design and print services from over 50 centres across the UK, Kall Kwik describes itself as a “one-stop design, print and online solution for businesses.”

The company’s youngest centre director George Rumball has recently completed a series of investments in a bid to bring the brand back to Bishopsgate in the City of London.

Since purchasing the Gravel Lane-based business three months ago, Rumball has invested over £10,000 in signage and digital equipment.

The centre, which was run by previous owners as an unbranded stationery store, presented huge potential to Rumball who as a long-standing Kall Kwik employee, was keen to provide the company’s full range of print services to the City of London.

Rumball joined the company almost ten years ago as account manager of the St James centre, during which time he learned about the brand and its commercial potential.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to be able to inject a new lease of life into the centre and bring the full range of Kall Kwik services to local businesses

From then he progressed his print sales and marketing experience with Inc Direct and then DST customer communications. Rumball kept in touch with the owner of Kall Kwik St James and when he learnt that the centre was on the market, he saw the opportunity and took it.

Rumball says: “I have always been ambitious and love selling. Print is in my blood – from the early days of working in the JP Morgan print room to trailblazing personalisation of print at Inc Direct. I have always hit my targets and enjoy networking – so setting up my own business was the next logical step.”

To allow the new centre to take on larger print jobs and meet the diverse needs of the city, Rumball has invested in a Canon large-format press, a Matrix laminator, a Morgana creaser/folder and is leasing a new Xerox V180 press.

“It is such a great location with premises just around the corner from Liverpool Street,” adds Rumball. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for me to be able to inject a new lease of life into the centre and bring the full range of Kall Kwik services to local businesses.”

Since its purchase, the premises has been renamed Kall Kwik City and now sports the company’s well-recognised branding. Rumball’s father Simon Rumball has also joined the team as print manager.
