Business Owners & Print Buyers  ...
Do you know the two types of printed items
you need for your business?

Have you ever thought about printing in this way…is it an expense or an investment?

Is it consumable or promotional?

What part of your company budget should pay for it?

The answers vary from company to company, but here is a quick guide:

These are printed items that, when you run out of them, you need to re-order. They are essential and you can’t run your business effectively without them. As these items are an expense, every dollar saved in this category equates to an extra dollar profit to your business. Examples of consumable items are envelopes, invoice books and letterheads.

These are discretionary items - most businesses can function for a time without them. The key element is not how much they cost, but how effective they are at increasing your revenue. Do you know how much you spend in this category, and more importantly, do you know what your return on investment is? Examples of promotional items are: business cards, brochures and branded products like pens and key rings.

We can manufacture both kinds of printed items and show you the most cost efficient way to buy print. Between us we have over 200 years of combined industry knowledge and we make no charge for our advice.

Why choose us?
As a customer of ours you can expect to receive top quality printed products, delivered on time, every time.

Our promise to you
If you choose us for your next print project you can look forward to receiving these benefits:
100% risk free printing - guaranteed!
  • Right first time - if you are unhappy with the end product or if we make a mistake it becomes our top priority to replace the job at our expense.
  • And on time - if you do not receive your order in the time we agree when you place your order and we have let you down, then the job is yours, free of charge
No hidden costs
You'll know exactly how much your job will cost before you place your order. So no more unexpected costs to pay when your job is complete.
Saving you money
Unless you have expert-level knowledge of the printing process you cannot be certain you're not wasting money every time you order.  We can give you the expert printing advice you of charge. We will advise you of any cost savings you can make when you give us a job.
Many of our customers have saved thousands of dollars simply by asking us if they're printing in the most cost effective way. These savings really add up over time too, because print jobs are often repeated. You make the saving EVERY time you print, not just once.
