Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

Top Printing Products for Welsh Startups


Here at Harlequin Printing and Packaging, we are proud to work with some of the country’s up-and-coming companies, supporting said businesses with a range of printing solutions.

Here is Wales, our startup community is flourishing, especially with regards to technology-based businesses. With Cardiff now existing as the fastest-growing digital economy outside London, Wales continues to build its own enterprise zone of startup talent.

Having received over £115m of venture capital investment over the past six years, Welsh startups are incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to marketing themselves; hence their success rate.

Below is a breakdown of the top printing products Welsh startups are utilising to aid their growth.

Business cards  

Whilst many argue that in this digital age business cards will become obsolete, here at Harlequin Printing and Packaging we have seen no sign of this. In fact, the demand for business card printing has never been so great. This is due to the fact that many enjoy something tactile to take home with them, with business cards being just as effective as ever.


When starting a business, the idiom ‘cash is King’ becomes so relevant. This is why marketing needs to rely on creativity; not huge budgets. For the reason, many startups invest in leaflets; a cheap, effective way for businesses to convey a message to a great number of people. Securing a large number of touchpoints, leaflets can also be used for various purposes. From leaflet drops into homes and offices to distribution at exhibitions and conferences, their versatility makes them a great investment.

Exhibition stands  

Those first few years of business are all about brand awareness, with startups needing to celebrate their niche and separate themselves from competitors. In Wales, we are seeing more and more exhibitions and networking events take place across the city, giving new businesses the opportunity to introduce themselves to the Welsh business community. However, as the appetite for exhibiting grows, so does the need for high-quality, professional exhibition stands.

To create an eye-catching, engaging stand, you will need the following printed: 

  • Roller banners
  • Signage
  • Sales leaflets and other collateral
  • Business cards
  • Branded giveaways such a stationary
