Who Are We?

As a team of expert print professionals, we’re truly passionate about the quality of your print, from the ink we use and the paper it’s printed on to the look and feel of the finished print. Because we want You to Love your Print.

We also love to geek out over our printing machines. Yes, we have HP Indigo digital printers. And we have enormous Heidelberg Speedmaster litho printing machines the length of a bus and twice as loud as it prints over 18,000 sheets per hour. Our saddle stitching and perfect binding machines are spectacular to watch as well.

Once you start working with us, you’ll have a new appreciation for print and paper. Admiring the print quality and feeling the gsm of restaurant menus, paperback books in shops and magazines on newsagents’ shelves becomes an occupational hazard when you work in this industry.

Most importantly, we have an appreciation of your work that is going to print – whether you’re a designer, photographer, artist, writer or editor. Unlike digital media, your printed work is physical, tangible and made to be cherished.

So if you’re looking for a new printing company, or you’re getting ready to print professionally for the first time, we’d love to help you.

How to Print Guides

Getting ready to print professionally for the first time? It’s a lot easier than you might think.

For years printers have thrived on keeping customers in the dark. So we’re going to shed some light on how to do it properly and empower you to take control of your printing.

Here are the 5 essentials of printing:

  1. CMYK colour for best colour reproduction
  2. 300dpi artwork files to prevent pixelation
  3. Upload PDF files for best results
  4. 3mm bleed area around the outside edge of your pages
  5. 5mm ‘quiet’, non-text area around the inside edge of your pages

We will explain all these and many more topics in absolute detail.

Social Features

Because we have a real appreciation of the work that we print, we regularly feature our customers’ work on our social media.

So while other print companies are busy blowing their own trumpets and beating you over the head with discounts and deals, we’d rather be championing the great work that people print with us.

And as our social media accounts grow with more followers, we’ll be able to get your work even more exposure.
