Aura Print

Today I’ll be writing about Aura Print, a print solutions business based in Huddersfield, UK. Aura Print originally started in 2007 when Liam Smith started from a cellar printing quality items, fast forward to 2024 and Aura Print have nearly 20 employees, print nearly 300 orders per week, globally.

What’s their success? Using the latest in technological printing advances, all thanks to investing in the latest machinery and hiring the best workforce, whilst delivering both quality and value for money at the same time.

You have endless printing options available to choose from on the Aura Print website, literally hundreds of colours and finishes. To assist me with today’s review Aura Print have kindly sent me a metallic foil sample pack so I get to look and touch (yes, touch) the quality they can produce.

To date (correct as of January 2024) Aura Print has produced goods for over 120K customers, not bad for a business in its 17th trading year.

Aura Print also has quite the clientele too. Brands include: The NHS, Pizza Hut, B&Q, Waitrose, National Trust, and Mercedes Benz to name just a handful. But they don’t just cater for well-known brands, individual customers are just as important. In fact, Aura Print have a 100% workmanship guarantee and with countless positive reviews on both Google and TrustPilot confirm customers are very happy with Aura Print.

When choosing a printing business to print your desired goods it’s important to see examples of finishes and colours. These sample packs from Aura Print are brilliant. you can see with your own eyes the finishes and feel with your hands the finish too. The soft touch laminate feels silky to the touch, each gsm has a different tactile feel too. So you can choose the best finish for your desired printing needs.

Aura Print has an endless library of products for you to choose from, anything from business cards, to leaflets, stickers, packaging, signage, and lots more.

You also get some wonderful guides on the website too. One that in particular caught my eye was the How To Design Your Own Bookmark In 5 Steps blog post. A fabulous step-by-step guide on how to custom create your own bookmark. Even giving examples on how to design in Photoshop, Illustrator and Canva. An informative flowchart of printing options help you to make decisions to not only design, but have your design printed.

I’m seriously impressed with Aura Print. It’s easy to see why they grew rapidly from a one man band to a team in such a short space of time. A friendly approach, and always treating everyone with respect, means Aura Print have gained both a loyal customer base and attracted the attention from well-known brands too.

In my dealings with Aura Print I found them to be very pleasant. I can tell Aura Print will continue to expand not just in the UK but continue to expand into the global market too.

I highly recommend Aura Print, check out their website for yourself.
