Where it all began

Established in 2004, Purple Mustard Ltd. is today the largest fully integrated manufacturer of sublimated products in the UK.

As one of the industry´s sublimation print experts, we specialise in bringing our customers´ brands to life through vibrant, photographic quality print to a variety of substrates.

Our ability to develop products in-house and deliver bespoke product solutions for our customers has led to us to become a preferred supplier to many brands and print and dye cutting partner to a variety of manufacturers.

Over the years we have invested in the future of Purple Mustard Ltd. through a number of site expansions, purchase of state-of-the-art print and pressing machinery, growth and training of our fantastic team and extensive new product development.

As a proud UK manufacturer, we are committed to ensuring we operate to the highest standards and in recent years have achieved ISO9001:2008 Accreditation, become members of the Made in Britain Campaign and have successfully undergone the intensive Four Pillar Sedex Members Ethical Trade Audit.

The Future

Like everything around us, we never stand still! We are constantly evolving and setting ourselves new challenges; whether it’s to develop an entirely new product for our customers, introduce even more efficient processes or working towards achieving new or higher levels of accreditation for our quality systems or environmental compliance.
