Online Reprographics works with Canon to create colourful future

online-repro-logo

The narrative of Online Reprographics so far can be defined by two words: foresight and courage. After breaking away from a large reprographic company in 2004, the ambitious British start-up enterprise wanted to become a prominent business in the architecture, design and construction markets.

Founder John Foy and his partners, having worked in the industry for all their professional lives, were confident that this was an achievable dream. Based across two sites in London, Online Reprographics has built on their experience to amass a loyal international client portfolio. In this time, it has developed a reputation for a fast and efficient service that is underpinned by digital technology and complemented by an intuitive understanding of its customers’ needs.
