Fight Club wins: Bailey Print Group takes top spot in Vehicle Graphics at HP APJ awards

Brisbane-based Bailey Print Group has hit the higher echelons of regional wide format printing by taking out top spot in three categories at the HP regional APJ large format sign and display print excellence awards.

Established in 1985 by Ron and Helena Bailey, and now with 12 staff, Bailey is today run by brother and sister Peter Bailey and Samantha Bailey-Jensen, with the HP awards coming just 18 months after the company installed HP Latex printers.

Bailey-Jensen says, “We entered because we have done some really great work that we are proud of. Winning is great, it gives us exposure, and shows what we are achieving.”

Bailey took out top spot in Decoration, Vehicle Graphics and Fashion Accessories, with the Decoration and Vehicle Graphics entries judged to be the Grand Winners for the region.

The winning Vehicle Graphics entry was Bailey’s Fight Truck a campaign to promote major boxing event The Battle of Brisbane 2, and comprising a mobile mock-up of a boxing ring on the back of a truck complete with full size cut outs of the two boxers Jeff Horn and Gary Corcoran, designed to capture attention across high-traffic areas.

Bailey-Jensen says, “The Fight Truck was a joint project, the client had the vision and we provided the input to create the solution.”

The winning Decoration entry was a full printed showroom of interior décor which included tables, blinds, cushion covers and upholstery.

Bailey Print Group installed an HP 1500 and then an HP 3200, both latex printers, as it sought to add environmental credentials to target government, education and aged care work, previously it had only used solvent printers.
