About Us


We are lithographic and digital commercial printers based in Marden, Kent. We have an in-depth knowledge of the design and print industry, specialising in printed matter for local businesses such as letterheads, business cards, leaflets and brochures. We run 1 and 2 colour A3+ lithographic presses for spot colour and NCR work as well as producing 4 colour promotional work both digitally and lithographically. We have plate-making facilities and an associated finishing department to handle our day to day printed matter.

The Hop Press was founded in 2002 by John Simmonds with a single colour lithographic press. After working in the print and reprographics industry in London since 1989, John decided to break away from the daily commute, starting the Hop Press as a part-time interest. After building the business up and purchasing another press and finishing equipment, the Hop Press relocated from Staplehurst to its current location in Marden. The continued investment in machinery continues with a Xerox digital press purchased in 2011.
