ABOUT OUR COMPANY
Since we started working with hospitals in 1991 we have always looked for innovation in order to improve the products and services we offer, and not just for innovations sake.
Starting out producing bespoke Patient Information Cards, it was clear that the hospitals wanted our services to expand to fulfil other publishing needs.
We introduced our Protocol Manuals service, producing tailored guidelines for junior doctors, to help in the training aspects of the first year students in the Emergency Department environment. We expanded this to include Induction Manuals, ENP Guidelines, Nursing Guidelines, Major Incident Plans and Health Competency Records.

BOE prides itself on our responsive quality service. We work exceptionally hard and treat every customer as our only customer.
From providing a complete template, to producing print, digital guidelines or designing scrubs for your hospital.
With a combined experience in excess of 50 years, our studio team is experienced in ensuring you get your products promptly. Under our stringent guidelines, the team produces in excess of 400 information proofs a month, and in excess of 20 100+ pages handbooks in any
4 month period.
With everything a bespoke design in the studio, we take great pride in our turnaround times, and the speed and efficiency of our service. No job is too big or small for the studio, and everything we produce is checked by our proof readers.
Quality Digital Printing
With our top of range Konica Minolta digital printers, anything we have produced can be printed and dispatched promptly
It’s a testament to the print team that over 90% of all orders are dispatched in 24 hours, with 70% of all orders going same day.
The versatility of our printing equipment enables us to produce a wide variety of work. From single to multi colour we cater for all print requirements and our experienced team are helped with the latest systems and quality-monitoring procedures.
Paper is, by its very nature, inherently difficult to clean. It is a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and a known source of cross-contamination
Our paper uses silver ion technology to reduce the population of bacteria and fungus, within 2 hours of contact. We submitted our products printed on anti-microbial paper for testing by an independent laboratory, under strict conditions harmful species of bacteria were reduced by up to 99.97%.
The paper was awarded certification to validate this in December 2009 by IMSL (lndustrial Mlcrobiologlcal Services Limited).
Our finishing department offers an extensive range of services from folding to foiling, all of which give added impact to the finished product
They say the 'devil is in the detail' and when it comes to finishing, the details are what make a job enticing to any client.
We use high quality Duplo and Morgana equipment to finishing all our in-house printed products to the best possible standard.
