Brand New Website

We are today delighted to announce the launch of our long overdue new website.

Laver Publishing Website

Over the past few months we have worked closely with local digital agency, evodesign, who have helped us revitalise our brand and build a solid new online marketing presence.

Those of you familiar with our old website will no doubt breathe a collective sigh as, well, it was a little clunky in its age.  Our new website, aside from looking rather nice, shows off all our products, many of which can be purchased directly via the web, in addition to an assortment of useful information and of course, our news section which we hope to keep populated with frequent articles and points of interest.

We hope you enjoy our new website, and of course we can now be followed on Twitter and Facebook.  If you run into any problems or have further suggestions we’d love to hear from you.
