Meshtex have survived through many turbulent periods, within an industry which has been constantly in decline, thanks to the quality of the service that we offer, and also due to being willing to diversify.
This diversification includes being diverse when it comes to the markets that we service with rotary screen engraving & colour separation services, which has lead us to work with clients within area’s outside of the traditional markets, and also diversifying into other area’s which enable us to capitalise upon our design skills and knowledge.
Through our photo gifts website Photo Image Art, we produce high quality personalised gifts such as canvas prints, photo cushions, photo mugs, personalised tea towels and many more. Thanks to our high quality standards, our focus on great customer service, and competitive pricing for high quality bespoke products, we have developed a very good customer base, and continue to go from strength to strength within this market.
Due to our very high quality standards, over a period of time we found that we were having to work very hard to source blank printable gifts for our photo gifts business, that were high enough quality in terms of product quality, image quality and in some cases also colour fastness. This lead us to have to either buy in larger quantities of the items we had found which were high enough quality – and where applicable, to have our own blanks manufactured to our own high standards.
We also struggled to receive the kind of service that we expected to receive. We were quite shocked at how often suppliers were out of stock of bread and butter items, we were disappointed at the level of customer service we were receiving from many of the blanks & consumables suppliers we had used.
This combination of factors lead us to make the decision that we should become a supplier ourselves, so we can offer the quality of products and service that we were seeking ourselves.
Therefore, in Summer 2011 we launched Subli, and have hit the ground running offering a great service, high quality products and competitive pricing, which has enabled us to quickly develop a base of happy customers. It is our goal to continue to grow the client base within 2012, and offer our great products and service to many more photo printing companies.
