About Us

At the heart of the CPUK Print Publishing's operation is a diversely experienced industry professional:-managing director Michael Chinnery, who has over 30 years of combined publishing and print management experience. 

Michael has been responsible for delivering in-house and contract production, printing, circulation & distribution strategies for several publishers. One of Michael’s senior positions, with Trinity Mirror Group, appointed him responsibility for 44 titles.

CPUK Print Publishing have been delivering publishing solutions and working with customers since 2008. Michael’s considerable experience, along with his team, can help make a difference to your business in cost, quality, innovation and service.

But don’t just take our word for it; see here’s what some of our customers have to say:-


“Since moving our print needs to CPUK a little over a year ago, the change has been immeasurable and has been noticed by many of our readers. The quality is second to none, the service impeccable and the attention to detail shown by the team has helped us out of potentially costly errors on several occasions.”

William Neil – Honda Tuner

"We had a very clear vision of what we wanted for our magazine, and CPUK have delivered this exactly as required and to an extremely high standard. On top of that, they have also been extremely knowledgeable in guiding us through the many delivery options in terms of mailing and postage in order to keep our costs down."

Ashley Meneely - The Mother magazine

"CPUK have been a huge benefit to our business. Friendly, efficient, and always ready with helpful advice. Working with them has been far more advantageous to our business than dealing with printers direct as we did previously."

Iain McCall - Mainline & Maritime Ltd

“When I started Into the Vale magazine, CPUK were recommended to me. As a novice in the industry, I needed advice on all aspects of producing a magazine and that is exactly what Michael and his team provided. From help with choosing fonts and paper weight, to finding the best-value print services to meet my individual requirements, CPUK have provided me with everything I need to make a success of my work at a pace that suits me. In particular, their input into initialising and developing my digital profile – something I would not have had the time or expertise to do myself - has been of huge benefit.” 

Sophie Brewill - Into the Vale magazine

"I like to work with CPUK because they go the extra mile in making things happen! 
Not only do they have a wealth of knowledge and experience, they quickly deal with any matter no matter how small. A great bunch, friendly and a joy to work with!"
John Greenwood – Lure Angling Society

“The quality of printing and level of service provided is up there with the best. I can confidently recommend CPUK as a solid and reliable supplier and experts in their field.”

Paul Sargent – Insider Publishing

Tuareg Productions Ltd has successfully worked with CPUK since 2012 with the Hanging Out book on youth culture, and the Jamaica Hidden Histories exhibition content and educational resource pack. Michael Chinnery and his team provide excellent and affordable service. 

Working with CPUK is an absolute joy. Not only do they always manage to get the best prices for our print jobs, but the personal touch that accompanies anything they do is priceless. They treat you as a human being rather than simply as a customer. We envisage working with them for a very long time to come and would urge anyone else who is thinking about utilising their services to do so without fear. You won’t be disappointed.
Michael Olayinka Eboda - Founder/CEO Powerful Media Ltd 

Park Life is a quarterly magazine providing members of Trent Park Running Club with information and articles of interest to runners. CPUK Print Publishing take articles and photographs in a very simple form and turn them into a really attractive full colour magazine which the members love. Trent Park is a members’ club with a limited budget and CPUK make sure they provide a top job within this agreed budget.
Charles Taylor – Trent Park Running Club

Here at In and Around magazines we have worked with Michael and his team at CPUK for the past 6 years and they now form such an intrinsic part of our own publishing team that it is difficult to imagine the smooth-running of our business without them. 
As we approach print deadlines we are always confident of their unerring and unflappable support and when we do encounter a problem, whether it be technological, design-orientated or an issue with the delivery of our magazines to the distribution guys for example, Michael is always reliably and calmly on hand to help sort it out.
Michael works hard to secure the best print prices for us and then works closely with the printers to make sure the very best quality of print and customer service is achieved.
We feel lucky to have found CPUK and hugely value the working relationship we have with each member of the team there.
Angela Baynham – In & Around magazines

Having worked with the team at CPUK Print Publishing for the last four years, I can say wholeheartedly that they are a fantastic, well-orchestrated and dynamic group of individuals. Without them I am convinced that I would not be in such a prominent position with my publication. For advice and direction in all things print, there simply is no other option. CPUK is your only choice. Thank you CPUK, you are the best!
