Indigo Print Now Part of Digitalpress. Get Beautiful Print in North Sydney

Dear Customers,

We hope you are all safe and well during these trying times.

It is with great pleasure I inform you that Indigo Print in North Sydney is now part of one of Australia's most iconic awarded experts in beautiful print, Digitalpress. Indigo Print was acquired by our marketing communications consortium, Bridgestone Investments via its subsidiary National Print Express Holdings Pty Ltd, two years ago, Digitalpress earlier this year. 

After three (3) months of careful planning and integration between the two digital print businesses we have emerged as two locations under one brand 'Digitalpress' allowing our customers to benefit from commercial large-scale printing from our Waterloo factory and a creative print hub at North Sydney.

Digitalpress has a long proud history, supporting many iconic brands, companies, agencies and government bodies nationally, and now with the Indigo Print merger we are confident this will further strengthen our relationships and expand our services to our customers throughout North Sydney and Sydney CBD business and creative precincts.

Our parent company, Bridgestone Investments, albeit larger, share our values, which are to provide a local service to our national customers and continue producing 'beautiful print'. Welcoming the partnership, the CEO of Bridgestone Investments, Jahangir Khan said he was "excited about the future for Indigo Print as part of the Digitalpress brand. To have an amalgamated creative print hub with the reputation of Digitalpress covering the greater Sydney CBD and North Sydney regions is a welcome addition to the group's strategy and vision of providing convenience and best-in-class service to our customers. As a result, Digitalpress will bolster our digital print production capabilities in North Sydney and conversely ensure a wider array of quality products and solutions for its customers with our ever-expanding suite of products and services".

We are determined that this chapter charts new horizons for our beloved brand with the addition of high-quality equipment, a wider range of services and increased geographic footprint which keep to our unwavering commitment towards our customers.

What does this mean for you?
Everything is 'business as usual' at Indigo Print with our creative print hub remaining in North Sydney, however you may notice a re-badging as we have rebranded to 'Digitalpress' with the same great people dealing with your requirements on a day-to-day basis. There are however a few enhancements that we hope you're as excited to hear about as we are to tell you;

  • The addition of our large scale digital print production facility, Digitalpress Waterloo, providing state-of-the-art digital printing capabilities, enhancing output, turnaround times and convenience for our existing customers.
  • The installation of the latest HP 7R Indigo 6 Colour Press, which will provide un-matched digital offset quality for printing of high value applications and enhanced productivity.
  • The provision of broader printing services such as wide format and signage printing for point of sale and retail windows with the installation of Fuji Film flatbed printers and Kongsberg digital cutting machines.
  • Access to a suite of marketing services made available by our sister companies operating as part of the Bridgestone Group, such as; customer insights/research, marketing distribution and online services.

New Name, Same Owner
We will now operate under our registered name 'Digitalpress', however the company that will own this name will not change. Hence all agreements, invoices and correspondence need not be amended, however for your comfort the following is how we will be referred to legally:

National Print Express Holdings Pty Ltd
(trading as 'Digitalpress')
(ABN 13 624 824 568)

Change of Bank Account
The biggest change is our bank account, owing to our relationship with National Australia Bank (NAB) for all companies that operate within the Bridgestone Group. What this means is that all payments for any invoices that you receive from today must be paid to:

Bank Name: National Australia Bank
Account Name: National Print Express Holdings Pty Ltd (trading as 'Digitalpress')
Branch Name: Bondi Junction Corporate Branch
BSB Number: 082-140
Account Number: 51-227-9797

But if you have paid an invoice to our old Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA) account, don't worry this account is still operational and we check it regularly.

Bridgestone Investments Acquires Digitalpress

Dear Customers,

Over the past 15 years I have had the pleasure of building a great brand and industry leader in 'Digitalpress'.  I have seen to its progress from humble beginnings as a boutique retail print shop to a nationally recognised commercial print business at the peak of its craft.  I have been gracious in the acceptance of awards the industry has bestowed upon us over the years and have led a team that have been lauded for their workmanship and expertise. 

I am, as I always have been a keen and astute learner, understanding and always keeping abreast of environmental developments in our industry to ensure that Digitalpress continues to develop, improve and grow.  It is with this vision I announce that Digitalpress is entering a new phase of its development and has been acquired by a marketing communications consortium, Bridgestone Investments ("BSI") via its subsidiary National Print Express Holdings Pty Ltd ("NPEH"), where settlement took place on Monday, 3 February 2020.

Digitalpress has a long proud history, supporting many iconic brands, companies, agencies and government bodies nationally, and with this acquisition and in partnership with Bridgestone Investments we hope to further strengthen our relationships and expand our services to our customers.

Your guide to Greeting Card trends for 2019

Your guide to Greeting Card trends for 2019

When it comes to trends for Greeting Cards and Stationery, the trends are forever coming and going and it can be a headache and a half trying to keep up with it all. Trends in paper and graphic design change as quickly as fashion on the runway.

It can be a minefield - and if you're a designer or someone who enjoys being on trend - how do you even know where to start?

At Digitalpress, we are the experts on beautiful print. And whilst trends aren't always what we might consider to be beautiful print, beautiful print is always on trend. Let's take a look at our wrap up of this years trends. 

 

Personalisation

There is no better way to stand out than with personalisation. What is more unique than you? Stationery that matches. From customised stationery to monogrammed cards - our variable data capability means that creating something custom doesn't mean you have to start from scratch. But if you are looking to create something brand new and unique to your brand - we can help you out there too with our in house design team.

Cards That Wont Cost The Earth

People are becoming increasingly more aware of their environmental footprint, considering how you design and print your stationery in this light is just as important as giving up your plastic toothbrush. Relying on a printer to deliver your project in the most low impact way possible is something that is harder and harder to do with the amount of ecowashing that can often occur. Be sure to make sure your printer uses inks that can be recycled - top tip: we do! Recycled paper is another way to reduce impact and making sure your stationery, and the gift you wrap it in - is the most ethical way you can give. 

 

Foiling

Luxe is a must. Imagine the most beautiful brush lettering you've seen, now imagine it covered in gold foil on the front of a card with a meaningful message inside. Incredible right? Foiling takes artwork to the next level. Don't have it in the budget? Try metalic inks for a product that feels just as special without the high end price tag. card Our tip? Keep your stock matte and untextured for a look that is flawless. 

 

 

 

Bold Prints

How bold can you be? The bolder the better when it comes to stationery and greeting card design. Send your message loud and clear with a bright, impactful pattern. Wondering how to make a simple pattern bold? Ask your printer (aka us) to add some embossing or debossing to create a more tangible 3D approach to your pattern that will wow your audience.
