Gavin Watson

About Us

Gavin Watson Printers were founded over 150 years ago in 1863, halfway through Queen Victoria's reign, when Bismarck ruled Prussia and Napoleon the Third was Emperor of France. The business remained in the Watson family until after the Second World War and was believed to be the first company in Scotland to purchase a lithography printing press which was used to initially specialise in the printing of ornate share certificates. Over the years, the company has gained an enviable reputation in the wet glue label market for all aspects of its customer service.

After considerable investment and hard work from all our staff over the last few years we have gained a formidable reputation for being one of the best Wet Glue Label, Tubewrap and Packaging printers in the UK!

Our in-house Visual Management Information System ensures that potential problems never become problematic! It is a system which enables us to know everything there is to know about the job from outset to delivery. The details of the job are thoroughly monitored to enable us to steer the job away from any potential complications. Furthermore, we are able to maximise all opportunities to save you both time and money.

Give us complete control over the project and using our robust project management methodology, we will devise appropriate schedules, ensure compliance with those schedules, provide you with regular progress reports and deliver a product that fulfills and exceeds your expectations, without you having to lift a finger.

With direct access to the main motorway networks, we can produce and export our labels to France, Ireland, Spain, Germany and across Europe.

Our goal is to continue to invest in the latest technology, train our staff to be the very best at what they do and offer our clients an unrivalled quality of service, product and experience. But don't take our word for it, we would be delighted to put you in contact with our clients to ask any questions you may have.
