About 60 employees from Graphic Impressions and magazine publishing partner Blitz Publications lost their jobs when the two businesses went under early in March. Blitz, which opened in 1986, owned nine magazine brands for the health, fitness and lifestyle industries, while Graphic Impressions was established in 2001 and specialised in sheet fed offset production, both in-house and for magazine and book industry clients. The companies shared the same address at 1 Miles Street, Mulgrave in Melbourne’s south-east, and were owned by Silvio Morelli, who has been unavailable for comment.

The sale of Graphic Impressions’ intellectual property and goodwill, including the customer list, data files, software, domain names, telephone numbers and logos, was being handled separately by Richard Rasmussen of Ascent Partners.
