Printing Business Insurance

As an insurance broker we are here to help you keep your business moving should things go wrong, with affordable printers' insurance that’s quick and easy to buy – and backed by expert guidance to make sure you get the peace of mind you’re paying for.


Why Printing Business Insurance is Important

Print firms face a unique set of risks. Unique to the trade, but also to every individual business. From property and machinery to employees and visitor risks, stock risks to those associated with defamation in printed materials, there is a lot to consider.

That is why the right printers' insurance is so important. You need peace of mind; knowing that you have identified and insured against all the major risks that could derail your business should the worst happen.

For example, it can help you recover if your premises or machinery are affected by a serious incident like fire, flood, theft, or breakdown – looking after the cost of repair or replacement and lost income too. A tailored printing business insurance policy can do all that and more. It can protect you from the liabilities that can arise from employing people, supplying goods to customers, supply chain risks like stock, goods in transit, book debts, and more.

That is why calling on an expert for guidance is so important. Printing business insurance is about peace of mind, but only if you know you have the right cover for your business, at the right price.

About the Printing Industry

The rise of the internet and portable devices has presented significant challenges for the UK printing industry. At least in part, that resulted in a 16% fall in the number of printing businesses in the UK between 2013 and 2018[1].

All the same, the sector still employs 116,000 people[2], generates £13.8 billion in combined annual turnover and stands as the world’s fifth largest producer of printed materials[3]. What’s more, it has moved with the times, now employing cutting edge information and production technologies. For instance, printing now routinely incorporates interactive elements such as QR codes and other near-field communications elements[4].

Clearly that innovation is good news for printers and their customers – helping to ensure the continued health of the sector by adapting to a new ‘digital reality’. However, it also brings new challenges and risks, not least increased pressure for ever more rapid delivery, coupled with accuracy, to meet the demands of a fast-moving business environment.

All of which means any issues affecting timely production can potentially have more serious consequences than before.

Damage to property and equipment, machinery breakdown, failure of utilities and suppliers are just some of the issues that can derail a print run and cause knock-on financial and reputational damage. That is why effective printing insurance is so important. It can help minimise those consequential effects while defending against a wide range of more universal risks, from liability and property to book debts.
