Agile flexible support

We started out as City Digital Limited (now cdl) in 1999. Back then we primarily supported financial markets with top quality, flexible and innovative print services using the latest and most sustainable technologies. We still do that but we do so much more now! Our services have expanded to additionally include IT, logistics and fulfilment, and branded merchandise and we don’t just work with financial services we also support other sectors such as charity and healthcare. And we like to think we’re getting it right as we’ve retained 95% of our clients.

Our people

Our most important asset

It’s not only our clients who stick with us a long time, our people do too, indeed most of them have been with us for over 10 years.

It’s a cliché to say your people are your most important asset but they really are. And like good assets we invest in them and provide an open environment where creativity and thinking are actively nurtured.

Our approach

We start by listening…

…to your story, your challenges, your vision. It’s important we understand how you arrived at this point, and where you plan to go from here. We always reflect back to ensure we’ve understood your objectives before presenting you with our sharp ideas and robust recommendations.

Together, we can achieve some spectacular results.

Our values


With trust comes great responsibility and many of our clients have to trust us with critical, confidential areas of their business, and we don’t let them down as evidenced by the longevity of our relationships with them. It’s the same with our suppliers and our people, they have to demonstrate that our trust in them is well placed.


In sectors like charity and financial services, where we do a considerable amount of work, integrity is fundamental for trust to be established. We are accountable for all our actions as we recognise that reputations are potentially at stake. We act honestly and ethically in our systems and processes as well as our relationships.


Without dedication, our other values are meaningless. We strive to be the best, to be agile, on-call and totally dedicated to delivering your projects on target. But our quest is more than a series of jobs well done, we dedicate time to identifying efficiencies and exploiting technological advances but, most importantly, we devote time to our relationship with you and your brand aspirations.
