New business partnership for Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums

08 December 2021

“Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums has been a hugely valued customer of Large Print Works for many years, and it is always a pleasure for us to work together"

Newcastle’s Large Print Works based in the east of the city at Hawick Crescent Industrial Estate is the latest local business to enter into a business partnership with the region’s museum, gallery and archive group Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (TWAM).  

Large Print Works use state of the art printing technology and a wealth of experience to supply and install a huge range of prints, exhibitions and display graphics for a variety of sectors, including the NHS, TWAM, design agencies and more.  

Natasha Scott, New Business Development Manager at Large Print Works said:  

“Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums has been a hugely valued customer of Large Print Works for many years, and it is always a pleasure for us to work together. Any opportunity for Large Print Works to support TWAM will always be welcomed by our team to show our appreciation for what TWAM offer back to the region.’’  

Large Print Works started as a photographic print studio in Newcastle’s cultural quarter Ouseburn in the 1980s, and evolved into the established Large Print Works operational today, which included the company bringing the first Oce Colorado 1650 UV gel printer to the north east in 2019. 

Nigel Alston-Philips, Development Specialist at TWAM said:  

“Large Print Works has been a trusted supplier of TWAM for many years, having supplied countless printed materials for exhibitions and displays, and excellent advice. It makes sense to solidify the relationship between TWAM and Large Print Works by establishing this business partnership.”     

TWAM manages nine museums and galleries across Tyneside and the Archives for Tyne and Wear, including the Great North Museum: Hancock, Discovery Museum and the Laing Art Gallery on behalf of the four local authorities in Tyneside and Newcastle University.  

The collections that TWAM are custodians of include those of international importance in archives, art, science and technology, archaeology, military and social history, fashion and natural sciences.
