Since Melissa Stannard took over Printing.com it has moved to Eastgate Street, taken on a graduate designerand she has seen the business grow.
Melissa, 32, was already working for Printing.com in Bury St Edmunds as a Graphic Designer, and when the owners retired she took the opportunity to buy the franchise.
Prior to that, Melissa a single mother of two young children had studied hard and worked at her local Fish & Chip shop to put herself through a three year Degree at the Anglia Ruskin University.

Its collective buying power and introduction of low cost websites for start-up businesses and online artwork templates has been invaluable to her.
