Our IC Simplicity services are designed to help you save time, money and help the environment. They allow you to print on demand, in short runs. This means no stock-piling or upfront ordering of thousands of cards – simply order as and when you need them.

Our IC Simplicity portal is a service designed especially for professional illustrators and publishers, who send orders to retailers. The service allows publishers to simply order on demand all of their designs with the click of a button.

New from the Imaging Centre in October 2020, will be our our IC Simplicity Centre website. For new artists and publishers who are starting out, our IC Simplicity Centre will offer an online portal with step by step guides to uploading your own designs for print. This is ideal for those wanting to try our on-demand printing service. Find out more about our Simplicity services here.

Our high quality professionally printed products are delivered direct to the retailer, and are stocked in retail outlets such as Scribbler, Paperchase, Urban Outfitters and hundreds of indie shops. Our publishers also sell online on retailers such as Amazon, Etsy and Not On The High Street.

Simply the best – a value for our staff, and our team spirit certainly reflects this. Our family run business has our Founder Bob Short’s children at the forefront,  Adam Short – Managing Director, and Jessica Short – Operations Director. We have many other longstanding staff members, some of whom have been with us for 20 years. You can see more about our team here.

‘ Think Green’

The Imaging Centre has always kept the environment central to decisions. From our fleet of electric company cars, to our new solar powered warehouse, and all the recycling in between. Read our environmental statement here.
