   From humble beginnings

Trading from the Old Church House in Mill Lane (just off the Square), a Grade II listed building, the Minster Press is one of the oldest family run businesses in Wimborne Minster. It celebrated its 70th birthday in 2006.
As the name implies the company is named after the famous Wimborne Minster located in the centre of the town, near to the River Stour, which runs through the County of Dorset.
Started in the Sp
ring of 1936 by the late H. L. Slocock in his father's garage, the business has seen amazing developments in technology in the last 70 years - from wooden printing blocks and lead type, to the latest computer-to-plate digital technology and the full colour digital printers of exceptional quality used today.

   The Print and Copy Shop

The Print and Copy shop adjacent to the main building was opened due to the increased demand from customers for quick turn round of high quality digital colour and black and white copying and printing. The shop is very popular with private and business customers for all on demand products.
At the Minster Press we provide solutions for people from business cards to books, to match your budget, satisfaction guaranteed.
Our customer base extends all over Dorset, the United Kingdom and Europe. We also have book projects that extend Worldwide.
Our attitude is simple, if you are looking for help with your printing, we can provide high quality & affordable Print Solutions for You!

   Considerable Progress

“Investment in new equipment has dramatically changed the speed and quality of printing today from when my father started the business.
Also today we print from single to full colour for private customers to multi-national organisations. And following the recent expansion of our printing capacity and extensive range of equipment we are able to handle all jobs, large or small”

says Managing Director Chris Slocock.
