Matthews is one of the UK’s leading print companies with over 30 years’ experience. The company has recently broadened its operations to offer clients a wide range of data-driven cross-media communications services that use personalisation to deliver a high return on investment.

The company wanted to reposition itself as a communications partner that can meet clients’ changing marketing needs by integrating traditional quality print with highly-effective communications.

We have been working with Phelan Barker for a number of years now and would highly recommend them. James and his team really get to the bottom of what it is you are looking to achieve and produce designs that meet your objectives and goals. They manage to evolve your brand and designs in ways that you didn’t realise it needed. Phelan think outside the box and are exceptional at delivering your ideas.
