High quality printed stationery
Award-winning Piccolo is one of Britain’s leading producers of high quality specialist printed stationery.
Founded in 1984 by ex Royal Naval officer Tim Honnor, Piccolo has grown into a prestigious, market-leading bespoke printer with a large international client list. Operating a host of vintage and state-of-the-art printing presses, Piccolo has carved out a niche as a printer of distinction in both classic and modern processes.
Today, Piccolo is headed by another ex Royal Naval man – and latterly, British printing industry CEO – Michael Johnson, along with his daughter, marketing and communications expert Gemma Pearce. Now design and marketing led, Piccolo is building on its reputation and unrivalled printing skills by offering everything from eye-catching stationery for young professionals, ornate diplomatic invitations, elegant wedding stationery to classic military correspondence.
At Piccolo we pride ourselves on creating timeless stationery with a look and feel that is unrivalled by today’s technology-led approaches. Our specialist team of printers are masters in the arts of die-stamping, thermography, letterpress and lithography – processes which give unique and unmatched results. We treasure the craft of traditional printing and see ourselves as keepers of the skills that make these techniques possible. Many of our employees are true artisans who have learned their craft through decades of handed-down knowledge.
Piccolo exists for anyone who cares about fine printed stationery – stationery that’s a pleasure to use and a joy to receive. By using the finest paper, inks and and blocks, Piccolo’s work always captures the imagination. It is our endeavour to create exceptional work that is accessible to all, and we want to keep these skills alive so that our customers – both today and in the future – can enjoy and share the pleasure of beautiful bespoke stationery.
