We’re celebrating at Dennis Maps as this year marks our 10th anniversary. The company was incorporated in May 2014 and has flourished since. Today, we produce over two million maps and charts every year, and work with customers large and small. “I am delighted that Dennis Maps has reached the milestone of its tenth anniversary!” says Steve Burry, Managing Director at the company. “We’ve navigated our way to becoming the leading map printer in the UK and a significant player on the international stage.”

Our heritage

Our factory is located in Frome, a historic market town in Somerset, England. We’re celebrating our 10th anniversary, but we can trace our original heritage back to 1850, continuing a 169-year tradition of large format printing in the town. The company is owned by the Estate of Felix Dennis (which operates for the benefit of Heart of England Forest Registered Charity) alongside Ordnance Survey (OS), Britain’s national mapping agency. We’re the trusted print partner of OS, producing iconic maps like its Explorer and Landranger series. We’re rooted in our history but always growing towards our future, adapting to an ever-changing market.

Maps and more

Over the years, we’ve developed as a specialist map and chart printers, but we offer much more. We provide a range of services, including large format printing (both litho and digital), small format digital printing, a pre-press service and map finishing options. We’ve printed a variety of products, including large format posters, brochures and point of sale signage. Whatever your printing project, we’re here to help.
