We are sure that you are as concerned as we are about the COVID-19 virus and the potential impact it could have on you, your business and your family.
Since the initial spread of the virus we have been implementing the government guidelines. In addition to the measures outlined by the government we at The Imaging Centre have created our own focus group to review contingency arrangements in order to remain operational throughout this challenging time.
Our aim is to reduce physical contact internally by putting in place shift pattern working to increase social distancing. This should lower the risk to our staff and allow them to continue production for you our loyal customers.
Our dedicated team have been extremely accommodating and flexible in order for this to happen. Those who are able, have now been set up to work from home, these staff members will be contactable as normal through current effective communication lines and have full access to all tools and systems they need.
Our message right now is very much “business as usual”. Should things escalate, we are confident in keeping any impact to a minimum.

Launching IC Simplicity Direct and IC Simplicity Direct DIY

IC Simplicity Direct is a new and innovative way of sending cards direct. We are able to print a single card, add a personal message if required and post directly to people at home during these uncertain times.


This means birthdays, thinking of you, seasonal and other special occasions will not be missed. Register and login to the link below to see a large range of designs to suit your occasion.





IC Simplicity Direct DIY has been set up so that you or your children can design their own cards to send to friends and family.

Use one of the envelopes to pop your creation in the post to those you are thinking of most. We are donating £1 from every order placed to the NHS.


what we offer

We would always recommend meeting your printer but as our customer base grows further afield we appreciate it is difficult for all of you to come and visit us here in Kent.


So for those of you who are too far away to visit we have made a short film to give you an insight as to what we do and how we do it here at The Imaging Centre.

Imaging Centre Abstract

Print on demand and deliver straight to your retailer - publishing is changing, don't be left behind.

Imagine if you could connect all your design files to an HP Indigo Press, proof them all on your chosen substrate free of charge and then order each design in minimums of 6 cards.


Then imagine if each time you receive an order from your wonderful customers you simply key it into an ordering system and send direct to the press, with the knowledge that within 4-5* days that order will be printed, finished, packed and dispatched to your  customer.


Then, finally, just imagine a time when your cards no longer require warehousing or storage. Why? Because you are printing on demand, you no longer print unless you have a sale - why would you!


No seasonal carry over, no longer estimating print runs for new untested ranges, no out of stocks but, most importantly, no cash tied up in old stock, or even new stock.

*Lead time based on orders not exceeding 1000 standard sized cards, printed, cut, folded and packed. Special finishes and larger orders will require more time.
