ENVIRONMENTAL PRINT

WE LOVE GREEN

We began this adventure with the question: How could we make one of the dirtiest industries cleaner and more environmental? Reycled paper. massive earth resource savings. Digital printing press. chemical free and zero ozone. Five rubbish streams. Limit overruns. Reduced print over-runs. 100% green electricity. We are realists. We stock sustainable plantation paper and have a Heidelberg press. We try to limit our impact on earth, so our children’s children may enjoy the beauty we now have.

RECYCLED PAPER

We offer recycled paper first and have a large range of choices in stock. On average, 500 sheets of recycled paper saves:
80 litres of water
5 kilos of wood
15 kwh of electricity
On small runs, the cost difference is miniscule. Paper pricing is based on quantities produced. The more we use recycled paper, the lower the costs will go. Let’s all go recycled!!

BRANDING

Branding is your logo, your colours, your fonts. At a glance, the reader should recognize all marketing collaterial  is from the same company: from your website … to your signs … to your business cards and brochures. The tighter you keep to your branding, the more recognisable you become to your community and beyond. 

MARKETING

Your target needs to see your brand/product at least 4 times to be recognizable. Branding can excite or diminish loyalty. And there are never guarantees. Those that are most successful play, tweak, observe and play some more. It’s creativity fine tuned. Between us, we have over 50 years professional  marketing experience and we can show you pathways and options.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

A brilliant graphic designer not only knows print, but is also an artist – those people who draw on anything, including napkins. Steve is one of those rarities that not only knows what text to emphasise, but makes the reader stare in awe. Counting the seconds a design holds the reader’s attention is how you assess good design work. Steve’s work is awe inspiring.

WEB DESIGN

Your website is a consistent 24/7 shop; a sales rep; your marketing plan in action. It pursues your target. It has a life of it’s own that needs constant tweaking and updating. Paul has years of experience in website design and management. He is passionate about his work. He prefers WordPress and is extremely good at SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). He is a calm and patient teacher – giving you the power to drive your website.

DIGITAL PRINTING

Ideal for small runs of anything the big printers do, with only 24 hour turnaround. This is not a colour photocopier but a digital production printing press: with inks that don’t fade; with photos that are as crisp as the quality we are given; with colour matching capacity; and best of all, chemical free and totally environmental with 100% green electricity.

OFFSET PRINTING

Perfect for Ietterheads, docket books and large runs of exactly the same impression. After setting up, only time and paper increase the costs, and offsets run fast. 3,000 brochures and up; 5,000 DLs and up; 10,000 business cards and up. It is not as environmental as digital, but considerably more cost effective on larger runs.

Words such as “exquisite” and “stunning” where expressed when I handed it over, and many compliments on graduation night. Even if, only for a short time please know that people are talking about it! I wanted to share that with you!”
