Quality printing for Manchester’s Universities – How it happened

The co-owners of MuPrint are Chris Leuty and John Shiel. The pair met whilst students at UMIST (now part of the University of Manchester) where both served as editor of Grip, the UMIST Student Union newspaper. Both were later elected sabbatical officers on the Students’ Union Executive as Communications Officer and President respectively.

Since then, Chris founded and ran the UMSU print shop until Summer 2011 while John worked as a journalist for the South Manchester Reporter, then as Production Manager. After a stint in Marketing and Media he started web design firm Krann Ltd in 2004 where he remains as Managing Director.

The pair got together to form the limited company MuPrint Ltd in Summer 2011 to offer print services to the general public and businesses in south Manchester, with particular emphasis on the educational establishments Manchester University, Manchester Metropolitan University, the Business School and the RNCM.

MuPrint offers a high quality service for the entire Manchester academic community and welcomes orders from the wider business community and general public too.


MuPrint – how do you say it?

We’re called MuPrint and we pronounce it mew print. The u is lowercase so it’s definitely not pronounced M U Print.

We use the lower case Greek letter Mu as our logo; it’s a symbol that is used in many different academic fields.

MuPrint Ltd. is a Limited Company, registered in England & Wales, Number 07551621. VAT Reg. No. 123 4349 47.
