There are three criteria by which any service industry is judged by its customers:


In the printing industry, it has been jokingly said that a customer could get one of these most of the time; sometimes they could get two of these; but never could they get all three at the same time.

Well, that axiom is a thing of the past!

Here at Colours, we strive to achieve ALL THREE criteria for EVERY job we supply.

And not just in the digital printing arena. We apply the same stringent benchmarks to our work in digital printing, offset printing, wide-format poster printing – any sort of printing.

So, what’s in it for you?

Quality, speed and price – that’s what. Each time, every time!


Because we have six digital presses (colour and black-and-white) available to print your jobs, you can be assured that they can be delivered on time, every time.

And because we colour manage the output from these presses, you can be assured of the finished quality.

And because our overheads are low, you can benefit from the best possible prices.


Colours was a very early adopter of wide-format poster printing technology. In 1993 an Encad Novajet was installed in our city premises, as a means of producing banners and exhibition material for various cultural institutions, art galleries and museums.

Now the company operates Epson, Encad, HP and Seiko wide format machines, to produce posters on virtually any substrate, with either solvent or dye-based inks. Prints up to 1524mm wide and of almost any length can be produced.

And of course we can finish them in any way you choose – laminated, mounted, as A-frames, with rope edges and eyelets, in roll-up banner stands, as wobblers or portable exhibition stands… there is no limit except your imagination.


From balloons to banners, hard-cover novels to trade catalogues, newspapers to magazines, CDs and DVDs, frig magnets, wine labels, mousemats, mobiles, pop-up banners, POS materials of any format, street signs, murals and sculptures.

If we can’t print it ourselves, we can get it done for you.

We specialise in short run production, but that doesn’t mean we can’t supply you with two million flyers, a hundred-thousand business cards or twenty-thousand envelopes.

And we can store them for you, and package and despatch only when and where you want.

We have been in the printing business for over 40 years – there’s not a lot we can’t do for you.


In 1987, Colours bought it’s first printing press. It wasn’t as old as the Albion Press (pictured at right) and we have long since upgraded, but it still feels like we have been doing it forever.

Interestingly, when we bought our first little Multi, we were situated in “Albion Place”, in the CBD of Sydney. A location that well suited the “olde-worlde” style of such a press.

Being an addicted early adopter of new technology, the company invested in digital printing equipment in the 1990s, buying Canon, Xeikon, HP, Scitex, Novajet and Xerox machines.

Colours now operates BW and colour digital printing equipment, wide-format poster printers and offset presses.

Our forté is fast-turnaround, short run, quality printing – and we have a wide range of equipment so we can do any job in the most effective way.

The presses are backed up with a complete arsenal of post-press finishing equipment, so we rarely have to send a job out to complete it – it is all done in house – binding, die-cutting, cellogazing, scoring, folding, foiling, embossing…
