Why Choose Dalesway?

20 Year Anniversary Logo

Zooprint is the name of our online product showcase. The company behind this is Dalesway Print Technology, and we have been around since 1995, growing into a company dedicated to the supply of top quality equipment, supplies and training services - Dalesway Print Technology.

Back in 1995 we were in your shoes. We needed reliable printing equipment and supplies for our own small business. We would happily have paid for some advice had we known that our first ever printing machine would nearly drive us mad, and make us seriously consider giving up our dream of having a printing business.

If we could have lifted that mechanical menace, (and it could fit!) it would have gone out of a window for certain! The second machine we bought was even worse... it actually gave scrap metal a bad name. So, after much headache and hassle, it was sent back on a slow boat to Hong Kong!

Our Philosophy

We made our fair share of mistakes, but we have learned a lot along the way and our experiences have taught us how to do our homework. It has led us to some of the hidden gems of printing equipment that have been established for many years, providing excellent customer experiences.

These are the manufacturers we now represent and have close relationships with as we work together to provide our customers with excellent tools to run their businesses, small or large. We have extrapolated this same philosophy in selecting partners for our supplies business and we feel sure that once you have sampled the excellent range of products, you will be delighted with the quality and safety of these products.

Value for Money

Our equipment and supplies are never the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but definitely the best possible value for money. We never bought a machine just because it was made in the UK (and must therefore be good) after that first purchase. We never bought on price again, and especially not from the Far East.

Since 1995 we have forged strong relationships with top notch suppliers, which changed the focus of our business from printing, to selling the equipment we had come to know and love.

Once we found the right printing equipment it made such a difference to our business! It was actually fun to get up in the morning and think about going to work. Fun and work in the same sentence? Yes you heard right! A good piece of machinery makes all the difference!

Not only can you enjoy the “daily grind”, but you have a much better chance of succeeding in business when you buy the right equipment.

Impartial advice?

We are in the unique position of being able to offer you the knowledge and expertise we gained over many years in business, plus the know-how from a range of suppliers that have vast experience in screen printing, especially t-shirt printing, pad printing and hot foil printing.

We realise that as suppliers of printing equipment you may be concerned that our advice will be biased, but rest assured that as a small, family owned and run business it is far more important to us that you get the right equipment for your needs.

We think of our customers as friends and would be happy to point out the pros and cons of each system and suggest alternatives for you to consider.

An Invitation

We would like to invite you to visit us at our new, custom built premises in the lovely town of Barnoldswick in Lancashire. We have a huge selection of equipment available for visitors to look at and we are happy to spend time with you to narrow down your exact needs.

We hope we may be of service to you soon.
