Berrington Press is a family firm, started by David in 1984 after moving with his wife and young daughters from Lancashire to Herefordshire. Over the years the business had to evolve and adapt to keep pace with the contemporary print industry. From printing with metal type to offset lithography, new technologies and changes within the trade came in quick succession creating fierce competition. After many years of successfully navigating the highs and lows of commercial printing David began to contemplate retirement and what he would do in his twilight years. Being a printer of the old school and having ink in his blood he found he couldn't give up printing entirely and turned his attention to renovating vintage presses in a bid to preserve the craft that he had learned many years ago.
In memory of David Wood who sadly passed away in 2017.
