About Kraken Print & Design

Why the name I hear you ask? The Kraken, a mythical beast of Scandinavian folklore has had a long and imposing presence for centuries echoing the experience of the father-son duo that head up team Kraken.

They are also beard lovers just like the pirates the Kraken loves to terrorise at sea! But don’t worry that’s where the similarities end, your Print and Design dreams will be works of art and not fiction.

Your Print and Design solutions are only a step away. Feel free to get in touch with us to discuss your needs. We will take your brief, produce artwork, free proofs for approval, quote, produce the goods and deliver your job before you need it.

Here is a list of what we are able to achieve for you and it is by no means exhaustive…

If you don’t see what you are looking for it is likely that over the 40 plus years that we have been in the industry that we have seen it, found a way to print it and bought the t-shirt! It’s that simple, just ask.

Daryl Baker - Head of Production at Kraken Print & Design

Daryl Baker

Head of Production

Daryl has 30 years expertise in the signage and large format printing industry.

He has experience in producing and installing everything from intricate vinyl decals to large office wallpapers, vehicle and shop signage.

When not producing signage Daryl likes to swing his leg over anything with 2 wheels to get his adrenalin fix - Mountain bikes, Motocross and Superbikes.

He is also passionate about being outdoors and visiting iconic museums, scenic landmarks and historical buildings.

Colin Smith - Head of Admin at Kraken Print & Design

Colin Smith

Head of Admin

Our numbers guy and the one that steers Kraken through the waters. Our most tenured and experienced member of the team. Colin is passionate about our customer experience, reputation and service. A stickler for punctuality and old school business ethics. Happy to chat via all social media platforms, but if a face-to-face meeting is more your style then he is more than happy to oblige.

Outside of the world of Kraken, Colin’s happy place is exploring the great outdoors on his mountain bike. Travelling to the far corners of the UK, escapism comes easy to this team member! When his feet are firmly on the ground (and not on the peddles) he can be found tending his garden or on the hunt for that perfect bottle of red!
