Centres of excellence

Operating from two manufacturing sites in the UK and France, we’ve built our reputation by delivering innovative solutions to over 180 administrations in the postal sector, where the Cartor name has become synonymous with highly creative and innovative stamp printing. Now, as we look to expand and open new markets, we are leveraging the expertise developed in this demanding sector and applying it to other key markets that could benefit from our extensive capabilities. 

By using the very latest, state-of-the-art technology to make it difficult for counterfeiters to operate in industries with high monetary or intellectual value products and services, we operate on a different level to our competitors. Each of our manufacturing sites has invested heavily in specialist, yet complementary, equipment, thereby ensuring that the group can deliver a broad range of products and services from either facility.

From printing ID laminates, to providing advanced track and trace and authentication capabilities, our wide-ranging and unique solutions help companies combat fraud to better protect their brands and revenues.

Why Cartor

Product security is an increasingly important consideration for many companies, organisations and institutions. With the visible growth in fraud and counterfeiting it is vital that new measures and techniques are built in to product development, production, handling, shipping and delivery to tackle such threatening and damaging activities.

As well as postage stamps, we can print and produce tax stamps, vouchers, coupons, certificates and security documents, in addition to providing a safe and secure environment for hand assembly and fulfilment.

We have an experienced, skilled and committed workforce that is the driving force behind our success. Together with the very specific and specialist skillsets of trusted partners, we work to design, develop, produce and deliver the unique solutions that protect your products and services.

Security As a mindset

Security to us is not just product protection, but a mindset and is a key element in our approach to designing our custom-built facilities both in the UK and in France. Access to the buildings and areas inside the buildings is rigorously governed, with bespoke entry and camera systems working 24 hours a day and for 365 days a year. From these centres we operate the very latest print and finishing equipment in strictly monitored environments that help us to control and maintain everything from humidity to temperature and air quality.

Print and production areas maintain strict quality and access controls, and together with a rigorously maintained waste disposal operation, ensures that sensitive or potentially valuable products or information do not leave the premises.

Certified to the highest levels

Cartor is recognised by the main industry regulatory bodies and has certification to the highest required levels. Whilst that may offer a benchmark to be proud of it is one that we aim to exceed. It is only by pushing boundaries that we have developed our unique place in the industry and become widely known for the products and services we provide.
