Amyas Trading, registered name of Touch Graphics, offer more than just printing services: their business was founded on supporting young people and communities. Taking a design project from idea through to finished product through a variety of mediums and environmentally-friendly materials, Touch have grown substantially since their previous raise with us. They now wish to accommodate this growth by extending their team, resources, and opening additional Cardiff locations.

Boosting your business and community through print

Established in 2011 by husband and wife, Anne and Eric, Touch offer digital printing, design, and online services all under roof. From poster printing in 1-2 working days, to printing business cards, signage, stationery, canvas, and so on, we ensure that everything we produce is to the highest standard, as well as being environmentally-friendly. We've also branched out into more specialist services, such as architect plans, dissertation binding, and recently we secured a contact to become Wales's premier - and perhaps only - sheet music printers. Going forward, we aim to further develop our services in wallpaper printing.

What makes us unique is the philosophy our company is built on. Although we are commercially run, we have a strong ethical and social conscience and motivation; in other words, we want to positively influence all our employees, clients, and their respective communities. We do this through offering internships, apprenticeships, coaching, and mentoring in expert hands: Anne holds Executive Coaching and Mentoring qualifications from Harvard University and we work with schemes like JobsGrowth Wales. This expertise is further used to support several our employees who work with Touch on a freelance basis while we support them to build their own businesses. We are also a member of the Armed Forces Covenant, currently investigating ways of supporting Military Charities and ex-service personnel.

The future looks exciting for Touch! After our previous raise with Crowd2Fund, we were able to modernise our machinery, keeping us ahead of the competition. This in addition to more contracts coming in, including one with a popular children's publisher, we're now in need of extending our premises and team to meet this demand. Therefore, the money raised will go towards this as well as marketing to continue our growth and development as we look to launch new websites.

A. Good morning Christopher from Canada I am sorry for the delay in replying but was travelling
only abbreviated accounts were submitted to comp house. full accounts clearly shoe the interest circa 7k year before last , 5k last year and this years has yet to be calculated by the accountant year ended May
(this is only for interest on money loaned external to the business) not that which my husband and I have put in I hope this clarifies things

A. We are acting as guarantee for both facilities
But to give you an idea of our financial situation
Both my husband and I have private pensions of 45k combined we have a property in Canada worth around 90k and equity equity in our home of £150/200k

A. thank you Jakob the profit for last year was 58k, this was after we took on a new member of staff and paying 20K for a new Rowland vinyl printer and laminator i hope this answers your question regards Anne

A. Amyas trading Limited is made up of several divisions , this money is specifically aimed at expanding the singage side of the business while the other money was employed with in the digital division to pay off our recent purchases of new machinery,
Due to the success of our company our current premises is to small and unless we find additional space, this will have a detrimental effect on the business hope this clarifies things.

A. we actively encourage care of our planet, plastic packaging has already been given the boot.
we constantly evaluate the materials we offer and change to more friendly products
we will spend time with clients offering alternatives in our quest to be green
we are one a few companies which will offer reskin banners and delivery's where possible are made by bike. My dream is to access solar power hope this answers our question regards Anne

A. Hi Adrian
Having paid of much of our facilities we have very little borrowing in the business apart from a previous facility raised through this platform which is around £10k and a director's loan
Regards
Anne
