A little history...

Empress Design & Print was born from its two parent companies, Frank E. Seary Ltd and Intaglio Classic Cards in 1996. The owners, Paul Beck and Pauline Everitt, wanted to keep alive the wonderful traditional printing process pioneered by the two old companies and preserve the knowledge and experience dating back well over a century.

We are very proud that we have been able to not only keep these virtues, but add to them with the latest technologies. It is our intention to continue the traditional art of engraved stationery and to keep pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved by incorporating this with modern print methods.

Over the years we have built up a team of printers, each specialists in their own field, to cater for our ever growing client base. Combined, we now have over 275 years printing experience.
