SPECIALITY

Affinity Print is a leader in the provision of sustainable print solutions, using efficient and proven processes. We engage with clients to tailor the best solution for management of your print and communications collateral.

Foil stamping

Foil stamping is a similar process to letterpress printing using heat and foil rather than inks. The heat and the pressure of the machine make the foil bond with the item being stamped. An image that has been foil stamped looks shiny, glossy and smooth. Foil stamping requires no drying time and will not rub off under normal use conditions.
Foil Stamping is a highly effective way to enhance the presentation of many products. The metallic finishes which include special effects holographics are used to draw attention to a variety of products and presentations.

Verko

Also known as thermographics or raised printing, Verko is best known for the unique look and texture it gives to business cards. This appealing style can also be used to brighten anything from books to annual reports and packaging.

Laminating

Thermal - Designed specifically for small run and small sized jobs. These coatings are ideal for digital printing.
Hi-Gloss as its name suggests, has a particularly hi-gloss finish.
Satin has a milder finish than matte that still reduces glare from light sources.

About

Commencing business in the early 1980s, Affinity Print has the maturity borne from over 30 years operational experience as an efficient and best practice print organisation. Being closely attuned with market trends and conditions we have learned the necessity to evolve or become irrelevant. This has rewarded our clients with a flexible, reliable, quality focused partnership.

Affinity Print has the experience, people and creative flexibility to deliver significant cost reductions and workflow improvements to all our clients.
Affinity Print combines our years of experience with the quality of our print and the flexibility of our ordering processes to deliver a seamless collaboration that will coordinate and streamline the order to receipt requirement of this project.

We are a company that values creativity and relationships and works hard to develop honest, transparent and mutually respectful communication with clients. Our account managers do this by meeting directly with the users to gain a deep understanding of their needs including the timeline. We are conveniently located in South Melbourne and specialise in the production and distribution of printed collateral which supports all marketing and communication departments.

Our aim is to deliver a mutually beneficial, long term partnership built around our technical expertise, account service, quality and a commitment to ethical, community and environmental responsibility that only Affinity Print can deliver. Our focus is on ensuring the best possible result is achieved on every order.
This is achieved in part by our total client focus, and we subscribe to the adage if you are not supporting the client directly, support someone who is
Client support is maximised by the account managers who in turn are professional supported by production, pre-media and management.

Effective management of your print production requires personnel who understand the nature and purpose of creative briefs, the technical aspects of production and the complexities of multiple delivery or mail house projects.
