Lighthouse Printing

Lighthouse Printing is a family-run company set up in 1985 and run by Jon and Fay Calvin-Thomas. We have provided printing and promotional goods for some of Wales most prestigious organisations.

In October 1985, we decided to start a family. Fay was working with Associated British Ports in Cardiff and Jon was producer of a radio programme for disabled people on the local radio station, C.B.C. We wanted to think of a business idea which would provide Fay with a job, working from home and would eventually provide a career for both of us. Printing seemed a good solution but there was one drawback - we knew absolutely nothing about it! A book from the local library gave us a start.

After about a year of trading, Fay was nominated and came a close second in the NatWest Bank 'Business Woman of the Year Competition' and earned a feature in the Western Mail!
