About us


We are Sterling Creative: the creative communications experts. What makes us different is being part of something bigger, Sterling Solutions, our tech-led parent print and production company. And being part of bigger, makes for better: value, service, results… all delivered as part of a seamless, full-service experience.

You’ll find us hard at work in our creative studio in Edinburgh or putting the pedal to the metal in our 68,000 sq. ft. print and production facility in Kettering. Together, we have the wit, kit and caboodle to develop your brief from the spark of an idea to an audience-igniting digital, print or point-of-sale deliverable – all ably co-ordinated by our dedicated account management team.

What we stand for

Sterling service

With a name like Sterling what we deliver, and how we deliver it, has to hit that hallmark! We constantly challenge convention and ourselves to meet briefs and budgets, while beating expectations. Getting to know your business (almost) as well as you do lets us work as an extension of your team – stepping in and stepping up wherever you need us.

Sterling sustainability

We’re pretty fond of the planet and we’d like it to be around a lot longer. We make it our mission to minimise our carbon footprint and always tick that most important box of all – the big green one! When we can, we only print on paper that’s recycled and recyclable. What’s more, we use only vegetable-based inks and we’re certified by the Forestry Stewardship Commission (FSC).

Our services



In our Edinburgh studio, our creatives work closely together to translate your vision into inspired design and copy that builds brand recognition and wins hearts and minds. From annual reports to animations (and pretty much everything in between), we work across print and digital to provide a truly integrated service. Take a look at our case studies to see what we can do and who we do it for.



What do you do when you can’t find the perfect app or platform to capture clients’ comms and marketing requirements? Build your own of course! Our talented team of developers has masterminded a series of data-driven products to engage different audience groups, and analyse and optimise interaction. These are available ‘off-the-shelf’ or can be further customised as required.



How many creative agencies can offer the latest litho and digital print technology in house, 24/7? Not many we’ll wager! And better still, providing a full end-to-end service – from devising the concept to delivering the end result – lets us make and pass on efficiencies that others simply can’t.


Point of sale

Looking to big up your brand? Our large format and point of sale team are the experts in creating high-impact displays for the great in- and outdoors. Boards, banners, screens… even super-size humans – if you can dream it, they can deliver.



Personalisation. It’s often the difference between direct mail being read or heading straight for recycling. No need to brief yet another agency though. Our combined data management and mailing team has the expertise to get your printed comms over the finishing line and in front of your carefully targeted audience.


Storage and fulfilment

Feeling the squeeze? Finished print can take up a lot of space. Keep financial and environmental costs down by storing your printed stock at the point of production on site at our secure storage facility in Kettering and let us take care of the fulfilment.
