Cauliflower Group Ltd is a family run printing company established in 2007 (originally Cauliflower Cards Ltd) which aims to promote pupils/childrens' self esteem and sense of pride by producing beautifully printed products.
We originally launched as company providing a Christmas Cards project for Primary Schools in 2006 and haven't looked back. The Company have continuously invested in good people and the best equipment in order to provide the best services to our customers. With expansion and growth we have developed a client base of over 6000 schools and work with around 2600 schools and groups annually across a range of print projects as well as many individuals. All production and management of projects is completed in house which allows us complete control of quality and turnaround time.
2009 saw the launch of our online Yearbook Creator for Primary Schools, we added a Cookbook option in 2010 and launched Cauliflower Stickers (online sticker shop for schools) in 2011. In 2012 we started to split our websites so that customers received a more dedicated online service. 2014 we launched our successful Leavers Hoodies website and developed our services into DTG printing and embroidery. In May 2016 we renamed our LTD Company to 'Cauliflower Group' to reflect the range of services we provide (and provide a more generic name for our customer service team to use when they answer the phone!) In 2017 we launched two new sites: Cauliflower School Calendars and Cauliflower Create - a site to expand our services to the wider public and are really excited to be developing new production skills in sublimation printing and other personalisation methods.
Cauliflower Group takes online security extremely seriously. The security of pupil information is regarded as essential to the services we provide to schools.
We do not disclose personal information to any third party company.

Colour differences between Screen and Print:
Between screen and printed products - images are brighter on screen as they are made by light rather than pigments.
Colour differences between Products:
A design printed on to different products may be printed using different print technologies including: Wide format Photo Printers, Digital Press, Sublimation Printing and DTG printing. This may result in changes in colour rendering between technologies.
Colour differences between Original Artwork and Print:
Please be aware there is likely to be a change between original artwork which has been scanned or photographed and a printed product as this will be a multistep process where colour clipping and rendering may occur with some colours at various stages in this process.
We do work on individual projects with the artist where colour matching is achieved through samples and digital manipulation to ensure accurate printing on the given medium - layup fee will apply.
Photo Image Quality
Poor quality - low resolution or poorly lit images - will provide disappointing results! You are responsible for the quality of images you upload - please see our image guide sections for help in choosing good images.
Artwork Reproduction Quality
For school groups projects it is important that Artwork Guidelines are adhered to in order we can reproduce artwork to the best possible standard. Using materials on our 'Do Not Use' List will result in poor quality representations.
Embroidery items font type and colour will match the product as advertised. If you change this in Cauliflowers creator we will still use the colour and font that is advertised on the original advertised design.
Many of our machines will not support unusual characters please check with our customer services if you wish to use special characters as we may be able to do a custom product service for you. We will not issue refunds for attempts at using non standard UK characters.
