About printers insurance


Insurance for printing companies

You can’t fix mistakes on printed paper. A minor misprint could cost your client and that’s going to cost you if they decide to claim against you. And it’s not just misprints. Wrong colour, logo size/position – could all mean you have to bear the reprinting cost.

Printers errors and omissions insurance doesn’t just protect you from the potential embarrassment of a typographical error, it’ll take care of your legal costs and compensation if your client decides to sue.


Employers and public liability insurance cover for printing businesses

Working in a fast-paced printing environment comes with its own risks to employees. From dealing with heavy machinery such as presses and guillotines to constant exposure to hazardous substances such as inks and binding agents. These exposures would be covered under employers liability insurance.

If customers and other visitors come to your premises, public liability insurance is a must. We understand the risks that accompany printers and can tailor your cover to suit your own requirements.


Business interruption insurance for printers

If disaster strikes, such as a fire or flood, and you find yourself unable to operate your printing business due to property damage, business interruption insurance can protect you against the loss of gross profit until your business recovers and can resume operating as it was before the disaster struck. Business interruption insurance can also cover additional costs incurred in keeping the business operating, such as working from an alternative premises where needed, subject to the additional costs incurred being less than the amount of gross profit saved by incurring them.
