Owner Hak handing over PPE to customer

Hak – Absolute Print, Junction Road, N19


Hak Huseyin has been running his business, Absolute Print, on Junction Road for 25 years, employing a team of seven local people. As a printers and stationers, they offer designing, printing and mailing services to other nearby businesses and to residents.

Whilst the pandemic has affected their ability to trade as they used to, they have managed to adapt to keep the business going. They are now offering a click and collect service and have increased their focus on providing for local businesses. The team are also adjusting to public health measures by using masks and sanitiser, and by creating new systems to allow for more space in the workplace.

Hak proudly told us that his team have made 9000 visors, which they have been donating to hospitals, schools, GP surgeries and opticians. When asked if he had a message for his customers, he said it was: “Shop local, support your local businesses and support your neighbours.”
