  • Louise | Director

    Louise | Director

    I bought and launched Printing Progress in 2008 with no experience in the industry but with both an excitement and determination to learn and succeed. I am a hairdresser by trade qualifying in the 90’s at Vidal Sassoon and going on to become an Art Director and General Manager at a Men’s spa in Mayfair.

    I decided at the end of 2007 that I wanted to own and run my own retail business. I had no real preference as to what business I wanted to buy but it was very important that it was an on-going concern and in the retail industry as that is where my experience lay.

    Printing Progress has surpassed all expectations I had of owning my own business. Not only do I get to work with talented and artistic people on a daily basis which feeds all my interests in fashion, design, the arts and music but I also get to help and support people and their businesses grow.

    When I'm not at work I love spending time with my family, friends and dogs. I enjoy all the arts, cutting hair, Shopping, travel, being outside and a pint of Blue Moon in the only pub in Bromley (The Barrel and Horn).

    Jeff | Designer

    I qualified from Art College 18 years ago after gaining my National Diploma. I have worked at various companies in my time such as London Pre Press Centre and RD2 Media but have been at Printing Progress since its launch.

    I specialise in building Company brands from scratch. Ideally this would comprise of taking a company with just a name and creating and producing an entire design and print package.

    When I’m not at work you will find me hurling downhill on my mountain bike on a cross country course or enjoying a pint and watching football at the pub with mates.

    Luke | Illustrator

    I spent most of my early life in art collage, picking up various skills and qualifications including a National Diploma in graphic design and graduating with an HND in Multimedia Design. I soon went into a number of design and I.T. jobs, eventually ending up working for Barker Brooks Media design agency in Harrogate doing editorial designs for clients such as British Racing Drivers Club Silverstone and The Goring Hotel London.

    Now a full time illustrator, I have a wealth of experience and skills, including hand rendered storyboards, comic art for graphic novels, digital painting and video game design.

    In the rare moments I'm not at a drawing board or staring at an Apple device, I play guitar in a thrash punk band and enjoy a real ale and the odd cycle."

I hold a BA (Hons) in Business Management, CMI and CIM Accredited, Expert in Joomla CMS, HTML5 and CSS3. I have over 7 Years experience in Web Design and Development.

    When I am not sitting behind the laptop, or constantly on the phone, I often enjoy going out for a meal or watching a movie in Angel. My days cannot go on without a packet of Wotsits or a carton of Strawberry Ribena.

  • Denise Callaghan Osteopath and Acupuncturist

    My stand created a much better impact than I expected, mainly due to Louise's work. There was a pressure on time related to the order and Louise excelled in making sure I received her work in plenty of time.
 Since then I have used Louise for my printing work and she has never let me down in the quality, ideas and speed of service.
 I will always recommend Louise for any printing work required with confidence that the customer I have sent her will be pleased and very impressed with her work. No wonder her business is growing from strength to strength in these difficult economic times.
  • Steve Howes Director of S&M Flooring

    We gave Louise (PrintingProgress) an order for printing, it was to copy existing headed invoices. We found the quality of the paper better than the original, and the price lower. We would recommend Louise to any of our contacts for quality of service and products.
  • Katie Smith Director of Butler & Hall A Superior Cleaning Service

    We used 'PrintingProgress' for our first batch of leaflets and thank you cards and were very pleased with the results! The quality and professionalism that Louise, the Director, showed really shone through! Louise did an incredible job in creating our new leaflets and our thank you cards. She was a great help with fabulous ideas for the content of our leaflets which other printers would not even entertain the idea of suggesting! 
She was not only professional and trustworthy, but also provided a prompt and courteous service.
The leaflets were printed within days and the sale ran extremely smoothly.
We feel we will always be able to rely on Louise for our future printing as in these times its paramount that printing is completed professionally, accurately and on time which is critical to marketing our cleaning business. Thanks Printing Progress!
  • Matt Rock owner of Matt Rock Photography

    I needed some business cards and as I had only used an Internet company before I wanted to have a better quality card to show a more professional look to my company. After a few discussions, advise and quotes from PrintingProgress I decided to change the look of my cards quite dramatically. I have to say that since receiving the cards the response I've had from people has been very positive and I will be able to give them out with confidence!
I would have lots of confidence in recommending Louise and her team at Printing Progress in the future. Thank you for your help and patience."
  • Sue Ball Director of A Time 4 Flowers

    I have recently had some smart new business cards and order pads printed for me by PrintingProgress Bromley. Louise Mcintosh and her designer Jeff were very quick to produce a great design for a more modem take on my original cards utilizing both sides of the card this time… and the minor amendments to my old order pads. Louise and co are Creative, Courteous and Efficient and produce a high quality product at a very reasonable price, therefore I would have no hesitation in recommending PrintingProgress with the utmost Confidence. Many Thanks Louise
  • James Ashley Account Manager of Tangent Office Supplies

    We recently employed Printing Progress to create and design some print ready artwork for one of our client's projects. Louise and her team were very quick & efficient and completed all of the work on schedule. They listened to our client’s requirements and fulfilled their exact criteria. I would have no hesitation in recommended Louise and her team for any form of design work.
  • Sina Zahedfar Managing Partner of Terra Prime Hosting LLP

    Louise Mcintosh is a valued client of ours. In fact over the course of our relationship, not only do we ensure she receives the best service, but she is now our Graphic Design Business Partner and PrintingProgress is the first recommendation for any graphic related enquiry. We highly recommend PrintingProgress for their personal touch and I feel we share the same business values."
  • Martin Wicox Director of Child Aid to Russia & the Republics

    As a charity we strive to ensure that expenditure that does not go directly to supporting the vulnerable, abandoned and abused children and young people in Eastern Europe is kept to a minimum and has maximum efficiency and we also want to have a clear and professional image.
In marking our 40 years of unbroken charitable work, we ask Printing Progress to come up with a new logo and letterhead which we could use for a year. There was a pretty a restrictive brief but Jeff and Louise came up with a great design which met the brief and which was modern and yet not too quirky
. Thank you for jobs very well done.
  • Rachelle Harte Owner of Lollipop Events Ltd

    At Lollipops we pride ourselves on providing, customer focused, quality services and are keen to work with like-minded professionals. With this in mind we were delighted to introduce your services to our client, a famous London journalist, who writes for The Guardian.
 My clients parties have been featured in Hello and Ok Magazine and as a high end lifestyle writer it is important to her that her professional image is reflected in her parties. I asked you to design and produce invitations at very short notice. You designed two options. On seeing the first, my client was delighted and didn’t bother to look at the second option.
Having decided to bring her party forward, by a week you were able to quickly make the amendments and get the invites printed and delivered in a matter of hours.
You pulled out all the stops yet did not compromise on quality and great design.
 Thank you for continuing to provide us with great design, great products and exceptional customer service.
  • Natalie Hughes Local Business Manager of Metro Bank

    I am writing to thank you and your team for doing a fantastic job printing our invitations. We sent a plan through on Thursday evening; on Friday Louise got straight back to us and adjusted our invite to make it look extremely professional. She also liaised directly with the team to ensure a swift service. On Monday the invitations were ready to pick up! It was great to know that I could refer our business to Louise in confidence and would do so again."
  • Richard Palmer Owner of 1980 Something Brand Communication

    Having been involved with numerous printers over the years, I have to admit it is difficult to surprise or impress me. However, Louise from PrintingProgress managed to do both on the first set of business cards i asked her to print. Since then, I have used her numerous times for print work ranging from 250 leaflets to 8,000 retail bags and other promotional materials both for me and clients. Her work is consistent, prices more than fair and delivery times excellent. I do and will carry on recommending Louise from PrintingProgress to all my clients and colleagues in the future."
  • Lydia & Yaz Nafa Owners of Premier Orthodontics

    Louise and the team at PrintingProgress have recently printed promotional leaflets for our practice and we are absolutely delighted with the result. Not only did they accept our many changes to design and text that we had provided in the first place, but they were extremely quick to respond with constructive comments and the latest modifications integrated in the document. The entire process was very smooth and pleasant. The quality of print and paper is fantastic and we could not be happier with the result. We can wholeheartedly recommend PrintingProgress to any business that is looking for quality print materials at very reasonable prices.
  • Frank McHugh Owner of Buy Local

    PrintingProgress's appreciation for what does and does not look right and their ability to help me and you to the same appreciation is invaluable. PrintingProgress are a great team and I would give them a grade A."
  • Maria Jones Manager of The Stapleford Centre

    If you want something different these are the printers to use. The staff are very friendly and willing to take time to ensure you get the job done that suits you. PrintingProgress are also very reasonable when it comes to costs. I use them for printing a programme of activities for our club, which we circulate to 800 members. I was also impressed with the speed the job was completed in that I recommended PrintingProgress to my employers and now they do all the printing for the company.
  • Paul Styles Owner of Scooter Aid

    I’d like to thank Louise for all her sterling efforts in helping me start up my new company ‘Scooter Aid’. Louise and her team designed a fantastic logo which I’m extremely pleased with. She was very patient and allowed me to make a few tweaks here and there until it was just right. Louise even designed an advert at short notice to enable me to meet a printing deadline and get my new company ‘mobile’. I am extremely impressed with Louise’s professionalism and would not hesitate to recommend PrintingProgress to my clients, family and friends.
  • Johnny Czarnota, Director

    Thank you so much for showing me the Flex sign. I carry out plenty of work at customers homes, sometimes spending all day there without any way of letting potential customers know which house I’m working in. I have only had the sign two weeks and have already picked up new clients thanks to being able to place my sign on the pavement to let the residents know which house Im working in. I have very limited space in my van and the construction of it and method of putting it together is so great and easy and it hardly takes any additional space in the van. Once again, thanks for great guidance :)
  • Angela Morris, Director

    Printing Progress are a breath of fresh air in terms of professionalism. Highly recommended!

  • Robert Aidie

    A Big Thankyou! When I stuck my hand up to create Vicki & Tonys wedding invite I didn't know what I was letting myself in for. However with your input, advise and patience the end result surpasses our expectation. Thank you so much for doing your bit in making it a special day
  • Julia Greenberg

    Louise, Thank you for the revised proof. As you can see, I have managed to get my computer sorted out. Everything is fine. you have done my mum proud! I will wait to hear from you, as to when I can collect the completed items. Thanks again. Great service as always!
