About Us

Bretonside Copy

Bretonside Copy is proud to have been providing customers within Plymouth (and further afield) with reprographic and print finishing services for more than 25 years. We specialise in fast-turnaround, digital printing and finishing, with the capability of printing up to A0 size & larger, in full colour. We offer a complete in-house service, from graphic design, through print production to print finishing.

Graphic Design & Artwork Checks

We pride ourselves on offering quality printing, and having good artwork files to print from is the most important way of ensuring this. With our suite of up-to-date Apple Macs and Adobe Creative Suite software, we can offer a complete design service, taking your creative brief and ideas, and turning them into a great piece of artwork ready for printing. Should you be supplying us with your own files, we will perform basic checks to ensure your document has suitable margins, bleed and resolution, and contact you if we notice anything that could cause problems with your order. Information on supplying your files correctly to avoid delays to your order can be found on our File Supply Guide page.

High Quality Digital Printing

At Bretonside Copy, we operate a fully digital print workflow, with Xerox digital presses capable of printing in full colour, duplex, up to SRA3 size onto 400gsm paper. We also have three large format printers, capable of printing up to A0. Our Canon Pro 4000 12-colour inkjet machine prints up to 44″ wide and is claimed by Canon to  produce the finest print quality available today. This machine produces superb fine-art Giclée prints and is especially targeted towards high quality large format photographic reproductions. We also use  a Canon ColorWave 700 toner pearl printer, perfect for water resistant, fast turnaround full-colour posters and block colour CAD prints and a Colorwave 300 Ink Jet Plan Printer, which can produce printed plans with colour lines and hatching plus B&W CAD prints while-you-wait or for next day delivery if orders are placed on-line prior to 11am. 


Our fully-equipped finishing department can turn your printed documents into high quality booklets, bound documents, pads, folded leaflets and much more. We can offer a range of different binding styles, including wire or plastic comb binding, hard back binding and perfect binding, as well as general finishing services such as numbering, perforating, folding, guillotining, creasing, drilling and stapling. If you require a custom-finished job, please contact us and we’ll calculate a quotation based on your requirements.
