Key Contacts in Powys

Office Solutions (Wales)
Office Solutions (Wales) formally Rhayader Office Supplies has now been delivering office stationery and furniture since 1998. In that time we have serviced Start Up Businesses (as I was once) to supplying Tottenham Hotspur FC with office furniture over several years. Over the last couple of years, we have gone into areas of print and can deliver all your printing needs. From business cards, letterheads, comp slips to brochures. Internal pop-up banners or even outside vinyl banners can be designed and printed. We are usually cheaper in the long term than web based stationers and those who keep sending their catalogues in the post. Like you in your business, you will want to deal with someone who understands your issues and to help, instead of just trying to get a sale. Remember, its just the cost of one phone call.
