Our Journey

Going back at least 30 years Kaleidoscope was originally set up as a photographic studio and processing laboratory – this was way back when chemicals were used to process photographs and digital photography hadn’t even been thought of. Simon Eade one of the two current Directors was either out on photographic shoots or busy in the studio taking photos from a gas fire to a man on horseback.

1988

In 2001 Darren Allsop joined the company, he has worked in the photographic printing trade all his working life. He started out as an apprentice sign tray maker and moved on to working for a photographic lab running the mounting and finishing department. By the time he joined Kaleidoscope he was already also an experienced digital printer too. With many skills under his belt along with an ongoing passion for the industry, Darren is always keen to help source new materials and ideas to help offer our clients what they want and just what they needed!

2001

2003 we went Ltd and became Kaleidoscope Imaging Ltd. Much has changed inside and out. The Studio is now used for scanning and reproducing original artworks – this is where Simon’s expertise is used at its best. Having reduced the laboratory side of the business and eventually submitting completely to the digital world we are 100% digital. Now offering wide-format printing and exhibition graphics where Darren’s years of experience and knowledge are used on a daily basis.

2003

Although Simon joined Kaleidoscope in 1981 and Darren in 2001 it wasn’t until 2014 that they took joint ownership after both Tony Morgan and Andy Beete retired. Now along with a small team of enthusiastic hard working staff – it’s a great team!

2014

Kaleidoscope is always keen to keep things moving onwards and upwards! Recently investing in new UVgel technology printing we are always looking to offer our clients excellent quality and of course at competitive prices. We are pleased to have so many loyal clients who have stayed with us over the years and we hope to continue to offer quality and an excellent service to all.
