Hobs Repro, part of the Hobs Group, have acquired the Face brand (Face Creative Services), creating a new powerhouse of digital printing in central London.

Hobs Repro provides high-end printing and finishing, display graphics and creative design services to a wide range of customers including Architects, construction companies and design agencies.  With six locations in Central London and across the UK, Hobs Repro is a leading independent reprographics company and the only one to hold a Royal Warrant for services to the Royal Household.
