Social Print & Copy (SP&C), Scotland’s first social enterprise within the print and copier sector, has announced a new partnership with Epson, largely thanks to a strong alignment around sustainability and CSR. As a Community Interest Company, SP&C will donate profits back to the charity sector through a community grants program due to be launched later this year.
SP&C will predominantly stock and sell Epson printers due to their low-energy consumption, low waste and low costs to the customer. While its core market is print and copier solutions, SP&C will also look at widening its product offering towards large format print and projectors.
Director Ian Gray, said: “Our customers’ stories are consistent, they are bombarded with complex, multi-layered contracts that are hard to understand and often cost more than promised. SP&C seeks to change the way our sector meets its printer and copier needs with cheaper costs and simple contracts. Epson stood out to us as their proposition on printing solutions focussed more on customers reducing their CO2 emissions and waste rather than blindsiding them with broken promises, and they generally proved themselves a great fit to the ethical standards we’re bringing to Scotland.”
