Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has over 24,000 students from all over the world and has played a vital role in the cultural renaissance of Liverpool, taking an active part in the regeneration of the city. It took its name from Sir John Moores, the founder of the Littlewoods empire, who was a great believer in the creation of opportunity for all, which embodies the ethos of LJMU. Belmont Press has been working with LJMU for over five years, printing the University’s core range of student marketing material, from two-page flyers to PUR binding their prospectuses with over 300 pages.

We have historically also been responsible for printing for the University’s July open day literature, which involved 130 separate print jobs, all with different print specifications and requirements.
