Data Supplies & Accessories Ltd was incorporated in the UK in
1982. Back then we saw a need for a reliable supplier of computer
consumables. This included printer ribbons, reel to reel tape and
continuous listing paper. Our original office was at St. Georges

Birthdays, Christening, Communion, Hen nights, Engagements,
Weddings, Proms, Graduations, Retirement, Get Well and even
