Successfully Selling a Business in the Printing Industry


Continuum acts for the Shareholder on the sale of Trade Winds Colour Printers

Trade Winds Colour Printers Ltd, based in the heart of London, is a service provider that has been providing high-quality, bulk printing and lithographic solutions to businesses since 1983. When it comes to selling a business, our reputation for our dedication to getting the deal over the line, no matter how complex, stands us in good stead for being instructed to act for the shareholders, as this testimonial shows.

In late 2016, Catherine Wheatley and Ron Hood, approached us for assistance in selling the business. The sale completed successfully in early 2017, the company having been acquired by Impress Print Services, a Surrey-based full-service printing provider.

This is What our Client had to Say

We chose Continuum for the sale of our business on the basis of various glowing recommendations and a straightforward, fixed-fee agreement.  They did not disappoint in any way and, as the sale proved to be more complicated than originally envisaged, we felt that engaging them potentially saved us a small fortune. 

Even more than money saved,  I would recommend them for the huge amount of anxiety they spared us: they gave their time freely, worked with rigour and a sense of urgency and remained calm and thoroughly professional despite the emerging complications. 

They replied to every query promptly and thoroughly and the team – Callum  was a pleasure to deal with at all times.  He was happy to make calls from early morning to late at night and we never had any sense that we not the most important client.  I cannot recommend Continuum highly enough and will not hesitate to use them again for all similar work.”
