You could say printing ink is in John’s blood. He comes from a long line of printers going back to 1865 with Petty & Sons. It’s a family business he loves and one which he continued when he founded JPS Limited in 1996.
With more than 45 years of experience, there really isn’t a question, print or paper, that John wouldn’t be able to answer, or that he hasn’t been asked before.
His experience is invaluable to our clients and their campaigns. With John they know that their project is in capable hands with time served expertise and passion.
He specialises in web-offset, gravure and sheet fed printing and all types of volume binding.
Bridget is the heart of JPS Limited. She comes from a family of printers so it’s no surprise that in 1997 – after a successful career working in repro at Scan Kolor Limited, then in publishing at American Express, Condé Nast and RR Donnelly which spanned 28 years – she joined her brother John to manage JPS Limited.
Since then Bridget has never looked back and JPS Limited has not only grown its loyal client base considerably, but also the team and its awards cabinet.
Fiona joined JPS Limited in 2008 bringing with her 15 years of experience in marketing, mail order and publishing having held positions at Otto UK, Time Warner, BCA and The Bradford Exchange.
It’s this marketing experience that allows Fiona to get closer to JPS Limited clients. She understands first-hand the pressures and challenges felt by marketing departments, how they work and what they need in a print management partner.
She’s the person marketing teams want on their side to guide them through a project from start to finish.

She has earned the title ‘Envelope Queen’ in the office. You name it, when it comes to knowledge of envelopes and sheet-fed production Sharron is the go to person.
When Natalie joined the team in 2016 she brought with her 20 years of experience in the print industry, mail order and direct mail.
She previously held the role of print production controller at Otto UK overseeing leading fashion brands such as Freemans, Grattan and Look Again – a role which took her across Europe to oversee their press passing.
She’s a self-confessed magazine addict – an interest which was probably fuelled during her time at Polestar managing titles such as GoodFood, Top Gear and Hello!
Natalie manages the whole print management process, from brief to delivery and nothing gets passed her eagle eyes.
It’s fair to say Zoë is a fashionista. Her career started in fashion, completing a degree in its promotion, production and design and owning a couture business.
