About Us

We are now known as the The DS Group.

Established 16 years ago as Direct Solutions, 2020 marks a very big milestone in our history and continued success.

Our new name better reflects our ability to offer you a vast array of products and services.  The DS Group provides design, print, direct mail and media publishing all under one roof.

We deliver an in-house, integrated approach and have a full printing operation on site offering the latest technology.

Whether your requirements are big or small, we can help. But, whatever the size, you can be assured that our touch is always personal.

We mail more than one million items each month for both local companies and national corporates.

We design and print a wide variety of sales and marketing products and materials. Do you need a new logo, stationery, leaflet or brochure? We can do it for you – and much, much more.

Our own success has led to significant growth.

In summer 2019, we launched our DS Media division, providing design, editorial and advertising content, print and distribution services for a portfolio of consumer and business publications and branded events.

Once again, our approach is integrated, offering you digital and social media design and content management support.

We publish our own cutting-edge industry publication, along with an associated online platform and guides, and run a prestigious annual awards ceremony. This provides a showcase for just how much is possible and what we can do for you.

Whatever your need, we have the right people, experience, expertise and tools to make it easy for you to communicate with your customers and get results.
