HP Indigo Operator
At 20 years of age, Matt’s the youngest member of the Print4UK team, however he’s actually been around print since the age of six having helped his dad out at the family run digital print company, and in his words, recalls how he used to help his dad run the machines, picking up not just the technical side of digital print, but also developing an excellent understanding and a love of the print industry.
Matt started with us as an apprentice and after just 1 year he was offered a full time position as one of HP Indigo operators.
