Blueprint has pedigree – about three decades of it in fact. We started out in 1984 as an instant printer, so we understand the importance of efficiency, speed and customer service. Over the years we’ve embraced leading edge print and prepress technology in A3 and A2 format. Today we’re one of the best equipped print service providers in Melbourne, but that’s not what makes us different. It comes back to being able to trust blue.
We know talent when we see it – and you’ll notice it too. Our tight knit team of around thirty professionals get the right results for each and every job. The team includes:
- Dedicated account managers for every client. We’re not just sales people – you work with experienced professionals armed with extensive production experience and industry knowledge.
- Senior management overseeing the process with over 80 years of combined experience in print.
- Prepress staff that will make your files work, provide quality advice and ensure your job prints as you intended with a “can do” attitude that’s hard to beat.
- Trade qualified production personnel operating our printing and finishing equipment, working to the highest standards of quality.
Along the way we’ve seen how others do things and have acquired some of Melbourne’s most respected printing companies including GT Graphics and Toth Bienk Printers. This has added another 50 years of tradition, strength and trust to Blue pedigree. Not to mention a few extra tricks to get you the results you’re after.
print service provision
We’re experts when it comes to manufacturing and managing print. Whether you need stationery, marketing material, large format, point of sale, promotional products or other print related items, we have the expertise, equipment and supply chain to get the job done. If you’d like we can set up a system customised to your needs that integrates into your exisiting website or network, enabling artwork generation on the fly, online ordering and inventory management.
prepress and design
We use the latest and best technologies to get the work on the presses, including Kodak CTP and Prinergy workflow systems feeding our conventional or plateless presses and Epson proofing conforming to ISO 12467-2 colour standards. However you’ve put the job together we’ve got the software and know how to achieve top class results. And if your files need work to finish off those “one percenters” transforming a good job into a great one, our design professionals will make it happen.
ctp enabled offset printing
Whether a simple one colour project or a complex item involving 10 colours or more, we’ve got the right press for the job. Be it a business card or large poster, your job will be printed in the best way to save time and money. In quantities big and small. We’re not limited to what kind of stocks we use either – speciality grades, recycled stocks and extra heavy boards – Blueprint can handle it.
direct to press offset printing
Some call it digital, but often you’ll just be getting a laser print off a copier. With our latest equipment we can print offset work without the need for plates. It’s still using ink – not toner and you’re getting the same top quality results you’d expect from our plated presses, but without the plate costs. This works brilliantly for those smaller projects or when you’d like to use personalisation – every copy can be different. Ask us to show you the results that we can achieve.
finishing and binding
Unlike others, we’re not reliant on outside suppliers to handle the bulk of the post press processes. With our own formecutting, cellosheening, stitching or perfect binding equipment and a whole lot more, we can handle the most complex jobs and keep control of your work, all with lightning fast turnaround times.
