Balmer Media In Liquidation / Gone Bust

Balmer Media who were a large format print and display company have gone into administration we learned today.

The Balmer media website featured a range of display stands with Google PPC advertising offering the cheapest banner stands on the internet!

With budgets cut and  the economy in turmoil, the temptation to purchase products at ‘too good to be true’ prices is strong but there are many considerations that should be taken into account when deciding upon a supplier for exhibition and display material including the track record of the company.

Printdesigns have been established since 1999 and offer great value on a range of portable exhibition stands. We can also offer large format printing onto a range of materials. Our printing services are not the cheapest that you can find on the internet but we guarantee a quality product with a fast turnaround and the ability to speak to helpful staff should you need to.

For any companies wishing to find a reliable supplier for large format printing, exhibition stands, canvas prints or banners we would encourage you to contact us on 01785 818111 and discuss your requirements with one of our team who can offer friendly, helpful advice.

We would like to express our sadness to all those that are left out of pocket after Balmer Media went into liquidation.

Update 2013: Balmer Media reformed with a new website name: – They went bust again owing over £11,000 to creditors this year

Update 2014: The website has now been re-badged and this company now calls itself Easyposter Ltd

    Not what the economy requires, another far east wanabee.
    See the latest image on oneumbrella twitter page, is that paper they are using on the bannerstands, never seen a stoplight that thin it hangs like a curtain.

  • Yes is Balmer media just look on companies house, they are registered to the same address. They also have a groupon style of site called spikey pants and another called jonnycanvas. They got shut down because of tax dodging and declaring their incomes wrong. They have scammed thousand of customers and should be punished because its fraud. You can do this by writing a letter to companies house telling them your problem and what they are doing now and they will take it further. It needs to stop now!

  • Hi Interested follower, do you mean this picture…

    I expect that picture will be removed soon

  • I used to collect parcels from them and the one umbrella company use the same building and funny old thing have the same staff working for them aswell. They have no customer service what so ever rude and arrogant.

    What a surprise, MR JOHN BALMER is with us, everyone clap and welcome to con man, with over 6 liquidated companies all owing thousands to companies, public and the general tax payer. What a proud man, he must sleep well at night.

  • Yes, it looks like they have gone ‘bump’ yet again so that’s now 3 incarnations in 3 Years!

    The attached shows they have been wound-up following a Court Judgement for over £11,000 and a subsequent appointment of liquidator.

    Never fear however, like a Phoenix from the flames all can be safe in the knowledge that they are already back under the name Easy Poster Ltd although Mr Balmer is no longer a company director (perhaps because he was involved with too many businesses that wound-up already).

    The website is still live although it’s been re-skinned with the name now Easy Poster Ltd on contact details!
