We’ve done it – Albany and Takapuna re-brand complete!

Wow, here we are, the first week of April and our Stores in Albany and Takapuna are now printing.com !

What a month (or 3) it has been…

From painting, new signage, new car branding, business cards, flyers… through to launch party, t-shirts, flowers and lollipops… new furniture, new banners, balloons and much much more.

“Fast Full Colour Print” is our new marketing tagline.  We embraced this  – We painted the town pink and blue and celebrated with pride.

We are looking forward to working with all our clients under our new branding – we have a new name and a new look but we are business as usual – the same Great People, same High Quality, same Handy Locations, same Friendly Service and same Delivery Promise. Continue reading

New Name but same, same, same

On the 1st April 2011, PrintStop changed its name to reflect the international branding of the master franchise printing.com.

PrintStop and printing.com has evolved over the years. Reading through the history of the franchise and company it is evident that things change over time to reflect the current market, the industry and of course, the customer.

PrintStop is a name you are familiar with, a name that is synonymous with well priced, fast turnaround, full colour printing. We are New Zealand’s only national retail printing chain, with 50 locally owned and operated franchises spread across the country.

This year we will continue to bring you everything you love about PrintStop, plus a whole lot more! We’ll be expanding the service and products we currently provide for you so watch out for some exciting new initiatives in the months ahead.

We live in a world of constant change, where things seldom stay the same, and we believe that’s what makes our world so wonderful.  That’s why we’re excited to be sharing our news about our future, where we will be staying the same in so many ways, but we’ll have a new name and be even better than before!

Strategic Step Forward for PrintStop and Small Business

PrintStop, New Zealand’s leading printing franchise network, has formalised its strategic partnership with printing.com to bring even more quality print services to small and medium sized businesses.

Today (1 April 2011) PrintStop rebrands to printing.com as part of its partnership with the UK-based global network of the same name.  The partnership provides the New Zealand franchise network with access to an international network of resources, expertise and collateral.

PrintStop CEO Steve Messenger says PrintStop stores around the country can now offer an even wider range of high quality print services that have traditionally been priced out of the reach of small and medium businesses.

“Small businesses want the same high quality print services as big companies but historically they haven’t been able to afford the same level as those with bigger budgets and volumes,” says Steve Messenger.

“We’ve changed that by making high quality print services readily available to all businesses without the high costs for setup and project management that have traditionally been associated with large volume print clients.”
