Icon Print started life in 2003 as a one-man band offset print company producing business cards and flyers for local businesses.
My personal printing career started way back in 1984 as an apprentice at L.R. Allen Calendars in Ponsonby. After completing my time, I took off on the good old Kiwi OE, and spent the next few years traveling the world, following my passions, searching for perfect waves and spending winters working and skiing in the Mountains of Austria.
I eventually found that special place – the surfing mecca of Hossegor in the South of France – and spent another four summers riding perfect waves and making friends in the surf and snow industry – many of who make up my wonderful customer base to this day.
When I finally returned home, I spent 10 years as a printer/production manager/estimator for a start-up company and gained skills and the confidence to go it alone.
Things in the printing industry changed rapidly through the early 2000’s as deadlines became tighter, and work requests became more varied and challenging, digital printing really came to the fore.
Whilst we still have our original offset facility for larger runs and special colour requirements, we have added a small format digital division for items such as business cards, flyers, brochures, short run items and variable data.
We also offer clients design and art services at very competitive prices. We particularly love helping people just starting up and needing help with ideas and branding. Our graphic designer is very creative and organised, so feel free to get in contact.
If you are in need of posters, billboards, banners, car wraps and letter cutting – we have a large format division to take care of that and more.
With all of these services combined, Icon Print can take care of virtually any printing requirement that you may have, and if by any chance we can’t do it, we will almost certainly be able to assist you in finding a solution from one of our many trusted companies we work with on a daily basis.
We would love to hear from you, so give us a call or drop us an email.
