The review read:

"Friendly neighbourhood print shop, close to the British Museum. Timu and Raymond are always really helpful and responsive and this is a great location for our organisation."

Shirvin at MBE Holborn shared the following about the store's journey since opening in January this year:

"With a huge footfall of tourists, we have been able to embrace the opportunity to provide first-class shipping services to customers from around the world. On top of this, we have excelled in providing postal services for postcards and souvenirs for tourists and visitors alike.

In terms of local businesses, we have already teamed up with numerous companies who use our centre for shipping. Just this week, we are also proud to announce that we have teamed up with a local “hot desk” company named Labs and have negotiated terms to become their official shipping supplier for the hundreds of hot desking companies that use the facilities.

And finally, we are proud to serve the prestigious Cordon Bleu cookery school with the printing of student coursework, portfolios, and menus. The school sees students pay up to £40,000 per year to study there, leaving them working in the world’s highest-spec restaurants and catering establishments.

With summer fast approaching we look forward to serving the many hundreds of thousands of tourists that pass our area, and growing MBE Holborn into a flagship store for the whole brand."
