New Print Room at Matthew Lewis Displays

Matt Lewis logo NEW

Now that the new website for the company has been put to bed and gone live its time to move onto the next project, THE PRINT ROOM. Over the past 9 years both machines have been housed in a back part of the building which doubled up as the dark room. It’s a bit small but has served us proud.

Existing Print Room

The walls have years of ink splatters up them, the cuboards are streaked with Photocoat and De-ghoster and the counter tops need to be replaced. The new room is next door, 3 times the size and use to be a store room. All the electrics are done, infact the whole building was re-wired about 8 years ago at a cost of over £7000

Start of New Print Room

At the moment this room stores the new desks for the Art Department which should be revamped later this week. Once the new windows have been fitted we will start to relocate the airlines which run the machines and intall the work tops. The old print room will then be revamped and turned into a darkroom housing the two small screen burners and the larger AO burner for the larger 36″ foil balloons.


About matthewlewisdisplays

We are a small balloon company based in Coventry. We specialize in balloon decoration and balloon printing. We have our own balloon printing machines & print on Qualatex latex balloons from 9" to 36" as well as 4ft & 5.5ft Chloroprenes in single colour and foils balloons from 18" , 20" and 36" in multi colour. We also have a full digital print arm to the company supplying business stationary and balloon race labels. As for me I'm self motivated, love my job and private life. Im married to Traci, have two children Joshua (Josh) and Harriet (Harribo) and two dogs, Midnight is a black Labrador and Zara is a black shaggy coated Labradoodle. My main hobby is fishing which I find very relaxing and I can be found with a rod in my hand most Sundays (Weather permitting). I also run a quiz every Monday evening in the pub I live next door to raising money for SANDS My balloon decorating career started many moons ago in 1989. I was introduced to Qualatex balloons just after that, passed my CBA in 1994 and have never looked back since. My work has taken me length and breath of England and into Europe working on large scale decor at Euro Disney in Paris and as well as Alacante in Spain and more recently appearing on the hit TV show "Idiot Abroad" staring Karl Pilkington & Warwick Davis on location in Macedonia for the 3rd and final series. My passion for balloons and balloon decoration continues to grow and I am a great believer that to be the best you need to use the best so Qualatex are my first and only balloon I use for large scale WOW factor decor. Their education and training are second to none and their vast array of products tick all the right boxes in the creative juices department.
