This Friday – David Podd, Podds Print

19th April 2024, 8:00 – 9:00 am

Podds Print was founded in 1950 by Charles Podd, as a traditional printer, serving a wide range of local professions and trades in South London.

In 1962 Charles was joined by his son David and together they worked to create a solid client base, investing in many new and creative production facilities, all in-house.

Now, trading as Podds Print, they remain a family-run company in their purpose-built factory, providing high-quality printing and signage services. David is the Managing Director and his sons Michael, Richard and Matthew are owners and Directors.
