TABS Creative for your Print and Media Management

Would you like the support of a knowledgeable print and media manager?
Someone who can buy the print you need, when you need it for the best prices and help with stock control too?


In a world of rationalisation and budget constraints, outsourcing the purchasing, stock control and supply of print and print consumables to an external print management company might sound an unnecessary expense. After all, if youve bought print or produced it in-house for years what value could someone else bring? Here's how TABS Creative Services can help.

We provide Print and Media Management services for many organisations and its fair to say, most, when first spoken to suggest their print and media supplier(s) are tried, trusted and provide as specified products. In some cases internal printing departments satisfy the companys needs at perceived preferential rates. In both cases TABS Creative Services starting point is to ask lots of questions.

As Print and media Management professionals it’s our role to understand your print and consumable requirements and how your business operates. We then explore if the items you purchase are the most effective product for their application, if they are sourced at the best price, and stocked and reordered in the most economical quantities. Time and again we find new solutions, more competitive prices and stocking options. We reduce expenditure and add value even with our management margin added.

The aim is not to denigrate the performance of the purchaser or producer, but more to show creative ways in which savings could be achieved.

Tuition with TABS

We are happy to pass on our knowledge, so that our clients are able to acquire a better understanding of numerous aspects of printing in all its forms.

Courses with TABS

We offer a series of practical and informal day courses. Please contact / email us and a member of staff will get back to you with further information

Who we've worked with

Our aim is to be part of your team, working under the same constraints as you rather than being just another supplier.


Why us

So why, we hear you ask, does the world need yet another printer?

It doesnt. Whats needed more is a company with access to thousands of them.
You just found it.

Our resources

We have carefully built a huge resource of printers, finishers and specialists covering every possible project permutation.

TABS Understands

Because of our understanding of the most appropriate plant and machinery, paper and other printable mediums, we think you'll find our advice enlightening, our estimates pleasing and customer service of a standard you'd be proud to call your own.

Our process is driven by production management and printing economics

So that even if you have a modest requirement you're very likely to benefit from the value and support we bring.

But are we a competitor to printers?
Far from it.

Our printers say that they would rather deal with a company with our knowledge and competencies because theres more likelihood of achieving a "right-first-time" result. This is why (the flattery excepting) they get work from us - and why we, and consequently you, benefit from their best quality (and preferential prices).

This is a win-win formula

And it is the reason behind our growing client list. We hope you'll want to add yourselves to it soon.
