About Us

How it started

In 1974, Andrew Bayley bought a small label press and a telephone, rented a space in the corner of an old meat abattoir in London – and Euro Label Printers was born. At the beginning, our founder managed all processes himself, from setting up the artwork and printing the product through to quality control and delivery. This meticulous level of service, instilled in the company right from the start, is still maintained to this day.
The company grew with investment into newer, better technology and more staff. Our client list grew too, with internationally-recognised companies such as EMI music (producing labels for Pink Floyd’s ‘The Wall’), Fyffes Bananas (ordering in batches of 50 million labels), 20th Century Fox, Random House, Penguin, HarperCollins, McCann Erickson and Japanese Tobacco International.

A solution to a permit problem

In 2005, Andrew’s son John joined the family business, which continued to thrive. And in 2015, a pivotal moment arrived: we received an order from a council for 30,000 garden waste permits. This in itself was nothing unusual, but through talking to the client, it transpired that the council’s own staff were doing a tremendous amount of work by hand to deliver their residents’ permits. They were handwriting addresses onto the permits, then packing and posting every single permit by hand – even the Head of Service was pitching in. With a background in engineering and software development, our Managing Director saw the potential for a technology-led solution that would achieve what we’d always set out to do: make life easier for councils.

So, in 2016, the idea for PermiServ’s permit management service was set in motion. Combining our history of label-printing with our IT development expertise, we built a tailor- made working model that could convert a spreadsheet into a service request, print merge data onto permits, then automatically pack permits ready to be dispatched. By the following year, PermiServ had fully arrived.

Word-of-mouth success

After a demo of how this technology worked, two more councils immediately adopted the on-demand permit printing service with the accompanying management portal. Those two councils spread the word and within just a few months, we were delivering permits for 25 local authorities. And within a year, we were dispatching nearly a million permits to residents across the UK.

Each year since then, we have invested in our technology infrastructure, more efficient equipment and built a dedicated customer service team to ensure we can continue delivering a first- class permit service as we work with more and more councils.

The evolution of PermiServ

We now have the capacity to produce and dispatch 25 million permits each year – with 100% camera- inspected fulfilment processes. And our development team are continually improving our bespoke industry-leading software, ensuring it offers all the functionality local councils need – for permit tracking and management, data analysis, and more.

Our mission is to make life easier for councils. We take on the administrative burden of delivering permits, leaving you free to focus on what you do best: providing services for your residents.

2023 Rebrand: Our renewed commitment to excellence

In 2023, we refreshed our brand identity, updating our logo, colour palettes and strapline, to convey our commitment to excellence and reflect our ambition to remain a leading authority within the garden waste industry.

Managing Director John Bayley expressed his enthusiasm for the rebrand, stating, “We’ve evolved greatly since our beginning as a printing company in the 1970s, and our earlier branding simply did not reflect what we do now, nor how we’ve grown. The desire to make life easier for councils and alleviate their workload has long been what drives us to do what we do, and it will always be our guiding principle. The new brand marks a pivotal moment in our journey and reinforces our dedication to progress and leadership in the garden waste industry.”
