Our Team

We are a locally owned and operated business passionate about helping others succeed – if our customers are successful, then so will we be. Don’t take our word for it though, check out our client testimonials.


Adkins-Colour-12Erin Adkins – Owner
After leaving their home town of Palmerston North, Erin, Barry and their 3 boys had stints of living in Wellington, the UK and Australia, before making the move north to Auckland.  Keen to stay put on the North Shore, you’ll probably find Erin on the sideline of a rugby, soccer, cricket or basketball field egging the boys on in their chosen sports.  If she’s not there, she’s more than likely on the end of a fishing line hoping to catch the big one!

She’s fiercely passionate about anything she takes on and printing.com is no exception.  After starting the Albany store from scratch (Printstop as it was known then), it wasn’t long before she had her sights set on the Takapuna store.  Today she’s just as focused on helping clients market their businesses effectively through design and print.

Hayley Karanui – Digital Account Manager
I was born and raised in Devonport, eventually moving to Albany with my fiancée.  I enjoy camping and fishing with my family, frequently visiting the Coromandel, or going up north with my son and my partner. I joined the company in September 2000, after leaving high school, and I love my job! When I find the time to relax from being a busy, working mum, I like to put my feet up with a  nice glass of wine.

Tash Hinde – Graphic Designer
I have recently graduated from AUT with a bachelor of design, majoring in graphic design. I love working with our team and it’s great being part of a local print shop straight out of University!




IMG_8300Yoki Yao – Born in China, I came over to New Zealand when I was 17. I am very fortunate to be a part of such an amazing team fresh out of University. Among design, I have a passion for watercolour painting and Illustration. The satisfaction of taking a design piece from start to a successful finish is the best feeling in the world. Look forward to working with you!
