Introducing a new group identity to unify our business

For over 30 years, together with our industry partners, we have delivered market-leading products and services within the digital imaging and graphics markets. Through EMEA-wide distribution, technical expertise, marketing and a wide range of services and support, we have educated and encouraged individuals and businesses to maximise their creativity.

With multiple brands and channels to market we have expanded our business across Europe, and whilst we continue to grow our portfolio and services, we recognise the need to simplify and streamline our operations to support this. Now is the right time to consolidate under one group. Following consultation with our partners and customers, we are introducing a brand that will allow us to build on our history and facilitate our future; we would like to introduce LUMESCA Group.


TypeMaker Ltd was formed in 1986 by Directors Geoffrey Clements and Simon Prais.

TypeMaker quickly grew throughout the late 1980s and 1990s and became a premier developer of image manipulation software for a range of niche industries.

In the early 2000s, TypeMaker expanded into the emerging digital imaging market and launched the Color Confidence brand, opening local offices in mainland Europe.

As TypeMaker grew their presence in Europe, Grafipress GmbH was acquired and re-launched in 2009 as a pan-European business selling to the graphics and
market place.

2013 saw TypeMaker appointed as the exclusive distributor for X-Rite Photo and Video across EMEA, which led to the emergence of the XP Distribution brand.

In 2019 TypeMaker acquired Dutch retailer brands, Eizowinkel and Kleurgidsen, extending its presence in the design and photo markets in Europe.

With the business ever-growing and to facilitate future expansion, it is time to consolidate our offering under LUMESCA Group.
