Our History

A timeline of our success

We're a family business that has been creating Integrated Labels for over 20 years and selling packaging and labels online for more than 10. Because of this vast experience, our customers rely on us for great value, considered product advice, and truly exceptional customer service.

Priory Direct is now the UK and Europe's leading supplier of eCommerce essentials. We consistently receive 97% positive customer feedback; higher than any other business in our field. We're incredibly proud of that and the loyalty of our customers as it shows we’re getting it right for them.
