A printing house in central Lynn was officially opened in a new location by the MP for North West Norfolk this week.
James Wild visited Prontaprint on St James Street yesterday afternoon after moving the company to its new premises on September 1st.
The printing company serves customers across the country and offers printing of everything from business cards to banners and personalized mugs.
Prontaprint has been somewhat disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic as it would normally print for summer events such as Festival Too and the Hunstanton Kite Festival, which were canceled this year.
Employee Mitchell Runnacles, a graphic designer, said: âWhen James Wild mentioned he was coming in it was a huge bonus for us.
âIt has been hard work lately, but we are continuing. We help with charity events and we have a new raffle once a month where we give free impressions to a local business that chooses a charity, so that the charity gets free printing.
“We’re all in the same boat so we’re going to help each other.”
The company is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday.
Mr Wild said: “It is really positive to move to new premises. The printing business is in demand due to the need for signage, so it is a main business. It is good to see them s ‘open in the heart of the city and through Cambridge and Leicester too.
“It’s encouraging to see what’s happening here and I want to support them. The coronavirus has been one of the disruptions this summer, but businesses have had to consider adjusting during the crisis.”

After visiting Prontaprint, Mr. Wild headed straight for the town’s historic ferry service and enjoyed a river crossing to the butchers of West Lynn and Priors.
Mr. Wild met Ben Ellis who took the ferry from Gail and Steve Kingston with his brother-in-law Richard Stannard.
