Phillips Direct

Our History

The Company was established in 1939 by Walter Phillips and was then known as Walter Phillips (Perivale) Limited.

Specialising in the letterpress printing of photographic mounts and hand bound Wedding and Photo Albums, the Company made a name for itself within the industry and became a Market Leader.

In 1960, Tony Phillips took over as Managing Director and the Company got involved in the industrial sector and started producing PVC ring binders and folders and supplied many household names, such as Glaxo, McVities and Gillette with Presentation products and Marketing materials.

In 2004 the Company, then known as Phillips Plastics Ltd, moved to new premises in Berkhamsted.

Now in its fourth generation, the business philosophy of the Company has always been to maintain high product standard and to provide innovative solutions at reasonable prices, which keep the Company and its Customers ahead of the competition.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US

  • My supplier cancelled on me so I reached out for help and Amanda was quick to get in touch. She turned the badges around really quickly and delivered them bang on time to our venue. I loved the yellow lanyards, good quality and bright, they matched our branding perfectly. The printed badges were solid and look really professional. I was very happy with the service, quality and price – I’d definitely use them again.

  • We were organising a corporate charity day and needed some display cases for our signed footballs, Phillips Direct were fantastic in quickly finding us a solution which was perfect for our needs. Thank you Phillips! Hayley James Communications Executive Antalis UK

    Hayley James – Antalis UK

  • Phillips Direct have been very supportive in recent months and this has been one of our first orders with them. Very efficient and helpful with queries, our client was very happy.

    Natalie Turner (ITG Haven)

  • We have been very impressed with Phillips Direct and the exceptional service we received while organising a big meeting last month. Peter and the team managed to produce a whole selection of personalised materials in a very short time frame. Everything was produced to a high quality and were exactly what we were looking for! Phillips Direct even came to the rescue at the last minute when our badge machine broke down just before the meeting! It was easy to communicate with the team and discuss the best options available. We look forward to working with Phillips Direct again soon!

    Emily McGrath (Succinct)

  • We have worked with Phillips Direct continuously ever since the first project in 1982. Some year have been busier than other but there has always been something new to work on. From velvet effect coin wallets to leather look stamp albums – every project has been approached with creativity.
