We are print and media experts
Our customers’ tell us that it’s reassuring to find a printer who believes as much in continuity as it does development. We’ve been producing exceptional print since 1870 and our commitment to service and competitive pricing hasn’t changed.
One of the things we pride ourselves on is our ability to translate complex print terminology to plain English so that you know exactly what you’re going to get.
We’ll spend as long as it takes with you listening and offering options and solutions, working alongside you to deliver an outstanding product.
We work as an extension of your marketing department, alongside your graphic designers and together with your print buyers. We take a practical, commercial approach to every project and understand how print fits into the overall marketing mix.
We have 24/7 litho printing capability and digital presses which deliver both flexibility and significant capacity and enable us to provide a genuinely impressive range of print solutions – tailored to meet individual budgets, marketing strategies, print run and material requirements. Our solutions are designed to give you certainty and confidence.
However you want to work we’ll be with you every step of the way – and we’re happy for you to meet the team every step of the way too. If you just want a single point of contact to deal with we’ll supply one, but if you want to meet the team involved in a particular process or everyone who’ll work on your project then that’s fine too. We’re a friendly and approachable bunch!

We care about the environment too
We recognise the importance of our environmental responsibilities and continually seek to improve its environment performance and minimise any negative impact.
Waste management procedures are in place throughout the factory aimed at reducing both energy and waste levels. Our paper, board and packaging used in the print process meets the environmental specifications of our client. All the waste Galloways produce is regularly collected by licensed contractors.
Galloways support the use of Carbon Balanced paper, which enables you to offset the unavoidable carbon emissions of your office paper and printed marketing communications. To find out more please speak to your account manager who would be happy to assist.
Providing the people of Manchester and beyond
Established in 1870, the company was originally based at 14 Charlotte Street in the heart of Manchester. Whilst the original building is still there, Galloways has moved on. In the 1930s we moved out of the city to Salford, to premises later completely destroyed in World War Two.
We successfully resurfaced, eventually moving to Stockport in 1964 and then on to our current, purpose built location in Poynton in 1989.
Ownership and the passion for print excellence has passed from founder John Galloway to his nephew and then down the generations from father to son.
