WHERE 101 CAME FROM
HOW IT ALL BEGAN
101, like many great businesses, started life in a small bedroom, in the heart of East London. James the CEO and founder, at the time was working as a graphic design teacher by day, and printing personal images for friends in the evenings. His creative flair and love for printing, saw him invest in the early canvas printing industry. This led him to be one of the early pioneers, which resulted in the birth of Canvas101, now know as Group101.
Since the dawn of time, the business has grown rapidly, from strength to strength. Their continued investment in the latest technologies, has seen them relocate many times, in order to cater for the ever growing needs for their wide spread clientele.
