Bruce Hooper - Foil Printer



As well as providing a service to local printers who would otherwise have to send stock away to be foiled, Bruce has now developed his business to include a printed ribbon service for individual occasions or corporate branding. This is under the name of 'The Little Printed Ribbon Company'.

Bruce has now produced a successful online business selling personalised and branded ribbon to individuals, shops and corporate organisations, not just on these shores but also the Midlands, London and as far away as New York. He looks after his growing client base, operating from his home in Peel. 

Bruce's service is rare, as all of the ribbons are hand-printed and he does not stipulate a minimum order. His professional designs are drawn up by himself using an illustrator package and then transferred onto the ribbon using his specialised foil printing machinery. 

The ribbons have various uses with perhaps the most popular being to personalise gifts. However, organisations have been known to utilise the ribbons by using them on promotional goods, gifts and one client has even uniquely used them as curtain tiebacks, bearing the company logo! Whatever the use, the ribbons are always sure to add the perfect finishing touch. 

For more information you can visit the MostlyManx shop in Douglas, where we proudly use the ribbons to personalise our gifts and hampers. Alternatively you can search for 'The Little Printed Ribbon Company' on Facebook or contact Bruce directly at
