Our Story

from the beginning

Dad’s Place was founded in October 2015 in memory of our late father, to share his captivating photography and to stock an eclectic range of gifts which people may like to buy for their Dad’s and loved ones.  

We stocked everything from remote control cars, to novelty gifts and Motorsport merchandise. However, when we started to understand that we could replicate Dad’s images, printing them to the same exacting standards that he would expect, we made the decision to focus solely on printing.  

Client Testimonial 

Great to support a local printing business. Excellent quality and friendly service. Very easy to deal with and would use again. The present was most appreciated and loved by Dad when we presented it to him

Client Testimonial 

Thanks so much to Dad’s Place! So impressed with the quality of my photo onto canvas. Was pleasantly surprised by the quality as my photo was taken on an old phone and quality of original photo was not so great. The canvas turned out perfect and is a lot better quality then the original photo! Also quick and friendly service. Will definitely be using you again. Thanks again x


the evolution of a printing business  

In April 2016 we started to sell Dad’s photography on canvas, through our website and platforms such as ebay. It was also around this time that we started to attend local crafts fairs. Once people saw the quality of our printing we were inundated with requests to print people’s personal images. We printed around 250 canvases in a 10 day period that December and our business has continued to grow ever since.   

At this stage we print for around 25 different businesses and countless personal customers.

continued investment and growth 

Towards the end of 2017 we were approached by a client to see if we could print some roll up banners, scrim banners and canvases for Crufts. In order to complete this order we purchased a 44″ fine art printer and it’s through our customers continued support that we are able to offer an ever increasing range of print services and continue to grow.

Thank you so much for capturing such a special moment and transferring it to canvas for me. Absolutely over the moon with how it’s come out. Will be back for more.
