About the employer

Cuttingedge was founded in 1997 as a bolt on to a large commercial printer, this company was “acquired” by a multinational print group, taking Cuttingedge along with it. Becoming like a lost puppy lost in a Giant multimedia organisation, Cuttingedge was cast out as the runt of the litter, to be found (ok, bought) and taken under the wing of it’s now owner, the White Ghost. The White Ghost, loved Cuttingedge and knew that it had many talents, which could be harnessed and nurtured, and had great idea’s of developing it to become one of the country’s leading large format print finishers and point of sale manufacturers.
