Dean began operation in 1992 with the trading name of Blackwell Print; running 2 offset printing presses and creating artwork for the work his customers required to be printed. The company has been in continual operation since then except for a brief span of 3 years when he took time off to gain a degree in Information Technology.

Since then we added a cat (orange of course) to the household and so a company rename seemed in order.

In the short space of time since 1992 the print & graphic industry has changed considerably. In 1992 most customers were content to have company stationery printed 1 or 2 colour - now people want full colour.

While Offset print still produces the best quality print on the largest range oif paper & board stocks digital print meets most requirements and as it requires little time to set up can produce most jobs easily and quickly.

We've added a digital printer to our machinery line up and made the offset machines redundant although if you want any job offset printed we still do that through our agency connections with Graphix Explosion.

We've also added web site development, hosting & domain name registration to our printing and graphic design services. Your web site can be hosted on our off shore budget servers or on our premium Windows server based in Auckland.
