What our clients have to say

We have been using ”Kestrel Print” since February 2020 and found their service to be 5 Star.
Keith has helped us tremendously with his advice and experience in selecting colours and fonts for our new sleeve covers for our food containers, which are a total of 14 different colours! This has no doubt impacted on our current market status increasing sales due the popularity of the visual impact of our product.
Nothing is to much trouble for him he wants our business to succeed as much as we do!
I value his opinion on the finish product and have not been disappointed!
I would highly recommend them for their expertise, finish product and timely delivery of end product.

I approached Kestrel as an early career artist and poet with a remit to produce copies of my inaugural poetry chapbook: they have been unbelievably helpful with both a no-nonsense approach, and impeccable remote support during what remains a very trying time for business in general. I was able to provide my own proofs and artwork which made this whole process virtually stress-free, and was advised at every stage of the process what my final product would look like. I fully expect to return to Kestrel for years to come, as I doubt I’ll find anyone else as willing to go the extra mile for their customers as Keith and his team were willing to do.

After experiencing issues with other printers it was so nice to find Kestrel Print. Keith has always helped us through all of our printing projects and we would not think of looking anywhere else. Fantastic quality and great service.

We have worked with Kestrel Printing for many years and have a great relationship with them. They understand what we do and what we need and can be relied upon to do a great job sticking to agreed timescales. We use them for all our printing needs.

We began to use Kestrel Printing initially as they were cheaper than our existing supplier, we have stayed with them since as the pricing is good and the quality of their work is excellent. On the rare occasion of having a problem it has been rectified promptly.
They have been very helpful in the changes in design of our bespoke company calendar, as a result we have done very well in the UK Calendar Awards, usually short listed as finalists and often coming second only to Pirelli.

Overall a superb company producing excellent work and always willing to help with any new printing we require.
