Home of the unique, striking and colourful, we like to think of ourselves as a little bit like Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory – but sadly without the chocolate (unless we make a cheeky trip to the farm shop next door, which we often do).
Dorotape has been a supplier of self-adhesive films to the sign and display industry for over 30 years. We are proud of the reputation we have built up over this time; starting with supplying just a few application tapes in the 80’s to outgrowing multiple premises and building the vast product portfolio we have today. With a dedicated team and close relationships with manufacturers, we promise to bring our customers the very latest innovations and product technology, whilst staying completely independent and selecting the best materials.
“What sets us apart from other suppliers is the technical support we offer. We use our knowledge and experience to be able to identify both strengths and limitations of materials, advise our customers on what is right for them and provide aftersales care when needed. It’s always worth contacting us to discuss a project because even if an item required isn’t held in stock, we will go the extra mile to source it, or even make it!” – Paul Houghton, Technical Sales.
Bursting with kaleidoscopic special effect films, digital print media, stencil films, garment decoration films and essential accessories, our base in Market Harborough offers free next day delivery on orders over £100, and we’re here to help every step of the way. In an industry with tight deadlines where creating the perfect look is key, we work closely with our customers, providing them with a bespoke service. We use state of the art in house technology when needed to ensure a colour or finish is just right.
Step into a world of pure imagination
With our ever-expanding range of digital print media, we’re banishing the limitations of even the trickiest of substrates and broadening horizons for some seriously out-of-the-box thinking. With sustainability still a hot topic, our growing portfolio of PVC free materials are a perfect alternative for the environmentally conscious, without compromising on stunning graphics.
“In this changing and challenging market, I feel it is more important than ever that we work alongside our customers to provide them with the perfect solution!” – James Carpenter, Managing Director.
In the fast-paced world of retail, we like to stay at the forefront of all things up and coming, and there are exciting times ahead! When we hit the high street, we can no longer expect to walk into a shop, but an immersive experience as retailers compete to make their stores more than a place to shop, but a destination. Window displays and “selfie spots” seem to be more important than ever, because let’s face it, if it’s not on Instagram, did you even go there?
Whether it’s bright candy colours or luxury chocolate box golds, fall in love with our bold range of dichroic, metallic, glitter and holographic films for dazzling displays as seen in Topshop, Selfridges and Liberty London. For a more understated look, our range of brushed metals and textured films such as wood, stone and leather create a brand-new look with a stylish nod to nature.
So, for a simple fresh update or a whole new world, special is our speciality.
