Stopping the spread of infections

The risk of contracting an infection from paper and packaging is an everyday reality. Microorganisms will utilise any surface to transfer from one host to another, and surfaces with high person-to-person use have been identified as a major contributor to infections.

Hesketh Press is a specialist antibacterial print supplier. The special coating works by deactivating 99.99% of bacteria, and fungi and this protection lasts for the entire lifetime of the print which reduces the risk of cross-contamination of thousands of bacteria strains.

This is a clear coating that will have no visual or quality impact on your printing but will prevent the printed surface from harbouring bacteria that can be passed on by touch. This antibacterial coating is proven to remove up to 99.9% of bacteria and microbes.

This coating is very popular for health, medical, catering and hospitality sectors: Antibacterial printing has many uses including medical and hospital documents, pharmaceutical printing, food packaging, menus, stationery, school books and for applications such as airline and cruise ship documents, which are likely to be handled by hundreds of people.

As professional printers Blackpool for over 40 years we deliver a high-quality printing all across the Fylde Coast, Lnachasiree and beyond.

As a company, we have used Hesketh Press for almost 20 years and would not hesitate to recommend them. The service they have provided to us has helped us to support our families and clients. Extremely professional and helpful with a desire to always go the extra mile. The product range and quality is superb and the cost extremely reasonable.


Hesketh Press have been our print supplier for years now. I cannot recommend them enough for everything print related. Whether you’re a small or big business, look no further than these guys. They print a range of products to the highest quality. As examples, they have recently printed our business cards, brochures, photos for frames, wristbands and menus. They are very efficient with enquiries and can’t do enough to help. I promise you will not be disappointed with the service and quality.


Hesketh prints our brochures for our smoke and ventilation products. We’re really happy with their service, they’re a lovely bunch of people and they’re a really good team…We send literature across to Hesketh for printing, sometimes we have issues with the artwork and literature and Hesketh always works with us to produce the best literature that they can.
