  • Epson seals SureColor reseller deal with Neopost Australia

    Epson is broadening its national dealer network in the sign and display segment, appointing Neopost Australia (formerly GBC Australia) as a national reseller for the Epson SureColor S Series eco-solvent printers.

    “Neopost Australia has established itself in the past decade as a leading supplier to the large format signage, exhibition and display industries, so it is a welcome addition to our dealer network,” says Craig Heckenberg (pictured), business unit manager for Epson Australia. Epson’s strong product offering in this segment complements Neopost’s experience across this market.

    “Customers are telling us there’s a lot to like in the SureColor S-Series, such as advanced media handling, high output flexibility and exceptional colour gamut, giving a boost to their customer’s satisfaction, so I am sure Neopost Australia will have great success with these printers,” he says.

    For Chris Pettit, marketing manager, Printing and Finishing Solutions, Neopost Australia, the new addition awards Neopost Australia with an added dose of brand prestige.

    “As a market leader in print finishing solutions for the graphics industry, partnering with world leading brands like Epson enhances our product offering, backed by our national sales, service and support capabilities,” says Pettit. “The Epson SureColor S series allows Neopost Australia to expand its product portfolio and truly offer a one-stop shop for all large format print and finishing needs to new and existing print providers.

    “Epson is a reliable brand at an attractive price-point giving Neopost Australia the competitive edge as a leading supplier to the print for pay market,” he says.

    Barry Grant, Neopost’s newly appointed national manager, Sign and Display, says his team’s role is to assist the existing customer base of traditional printers to diversify their product offering to the growing signage market.

    “Our knowledge across all aspects of this market is as much a value-add to an existing sign-writer as it is to a new contender, and the speed, reliability and overall performance of the SureColor S Series printers certainly adds to our capabilities,” says Grant.

  • GAMAA extends closing date for $15,000 grant

    The closing date for the 2013 GAMAA Industry Overseas Internship Grant, which is valued at $15,000, has been extended to 30 March, 2013.  

    Initiated by GAMAA last year, the grant allows the successful applicant to undertake an internship with companies of their choosing anywhere in the world.

    Last year’s winner, Peter Barnet of Bambra Press in Melbourne, visited the USA where he attended the Direct Marketing Association (DMA12) show in Las Vegas, met with a number of visionary digital printing firms and undertook an intense weekend workshop with marketing wizard Seth Godin, Barnet’s marketing mentor.  

    Internships can be undertaken in marketing, new media, print, graphic design and other nominated disciplines related to the print media field. The outcome of the successful Grant will be a research paper documenting the recipient’s experience and how these learnings can be applied to the Australian market.

    “This is a fantastic opportunity for someone in the industry to expand their knowledge base and contribute to the future of our industry,” says Karen Goldsmith (pictured), GAMAA executive director. “I encourage those who are interested in applying for the GAMAA Grant to call me to discuss their project prior to submitting an application. Even if you only have the germ of an idea, let’s talk about it to see how it may be developed.”
