News: Instantprint press on with expansion


Rotherham-based online printing company, instantprint has announced that over 20 new jobs will be available from September 2016, as the business continues its expansion.

The firm merged with fast-growing print experts, Bluetree Design & Print Ltd in 2012. It moved into bigger Rotherham premises at Manvers last year where staff numbers have hit the 200 mark.

The latest recruitment drive is part of a planned creation of 100 jobs over the course of a year, following the investment of a £1m grant funded by the Sheffield City Region Local Enterpeise Partnership's (LEP's) Unlocking Business Investment Regional Growth Fund programme.

Among the vacancies advertised this summer are roles across a variety of levels and departments including artwork, web development and business development.


James Kinsella co-founder of Instantprint, said: "It's terrific that we are able to continue to grow at such a rate, and it's a credit to everyone involved in the business. We are constantly on the lookout for fresh talent and I can't wait to welcome this new group to the company."

As part of the recruitment process, instantprint are hosting an assessment day for applicants for 11 factory production positions on August 26 between 09:30 and 15:00, at Holiday Inn, Wath upon Dearne. Attendance for this event is strictly by invitation only and details can be found here.

The company now specialises in 24-hour flyer and leaflets, business cards, posters and stationery printing. It also offers large format print such as banners and exhibition display stands for events and promotions.

Instantprint became he first Rotherham-based company to make the annual Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track 100 league table which ranks Britain's private companies with the fastest-growing sales over three years. With sales of £3.4m in 2012, and reaching £14.4m in 2015, annual sales growth over three years was 62%, ranking Instantprint at 50th in the table.

When childhood friends Adam Carnell and James Kinsella graduated, they had already spotted a gap in the market for online printing. The duo founded Instantprint in 2009 using second-hand printing equipment and a borrowed office.

Established in 1989, the Bluetree Design & Print Ltd has evolved from a traditional screen printer to a predominantly digital offering. It took space at the Ignite @ Magna development at Templeborough in 2007. Funding from Barclays and the Region Growth Fund Programme enabled the group to move to a new 86,900 sq ft site at Brookfields Park.
