2016 is here and we’re insanely busy already?!! It’s January right?? I’m so pumped it’s not funny Infact, I’m soooooo excited I can hardly sit still long enough to type this!! haha BUT…more important than all that, we want to hear from you! http://goo.gl/forms/Q3boflJ15H FEEDBACK time – before you do that read on below.
Are you next?

As you may know this last weekend we recently went down to Sydney for the PrintEx/Visual Impact Expo and the National Printing and Craftsmanship Awards.
It was a huge night. The icons of the industry were there. All the big players competing for Gold!
2015 National PICA Awards
The National Awards is the best of the best in the Printing Industry from around the country. There were just under 800 entries in total that are judged by a panel of expert Industry Judges to award the winners. There was approximately 500 who attended the Awards Ceremony and Dinner.
I must say there were a few moments when we felt like the David amongst the Goliaths of the Industry! haha 🙂
Mr & Mrs InkFX 🙂
We had a couple of entries in 2 different categories. Speciality Printing and Wide Format Printing.
The first category that came up for us was the Wide Format category which we won a SILVER Medal in. I was very pleased with that result amidst such tough competition.
And the Winner is…
Our next category that came up was the Speciality Printing category. This is the Category that we won the Gold for in the Queensland State PICA Awards late last year.
To say we were a little nervous hearing this one announced was a massive understatement. Either way, Bronze…Silver…and then Gold to Ink FX Printing!! Oh Yeah!!!
Wow! I just realized it’s been waaaay too long since writing a formal update for our blog. So here goes! 🙂
Zac and I recently went down to Melbourne for PacPrint (Printing Trade show) and spent some time checking out all the latest equipment on offer from the various suppliers e.g. Epson, HP, Canon, Fujifilm, Kodak, Konica Minolta, Roland etc etc etc and the brands go on. Our main purpose for being there though was to really check out one of the newest Epson machines that we’re looking at getting for InkFX.
It’s a beast! We spent quite a few hours with the guys at Epson and our trade suppliers running samples and tweeking things to make sure the quality for what we do and for our clients is at it’s best! 🙂 We’re pleased to say that we’re more than thrilled with the results and are hoping to be able to get the machine in the next few weeks.
We actually took a few Canvases down from here that we had already printed on our current printers using the Hahnemuhle Daguerre canvas to compare. The color gamut of the new printers is amazing. Even the 4 color printer results were very impressive. Not quite good enough for what we’re after but good all the same!
We’ll keep you posted on this as to how the acquisition goes though. 🙂
We’re currently reviewing all the different media types that we offer and we will be removing a number of them. As of tomorrow 22nd April 2013 we will no longer be offering the Moab Exhibition Luster media.
It’s a beautiful paper but the demand has just not been there for it. An alternative to the Exhibition Luster is our 285gsm Luster/Silk Prints.
I’m currently not taking on any new Photography assignments at the moment. I absolutely love shooting but with our printing business InkFX Printing there’s very little time for me to get out and shoot. But I get a real buzz from seeing our amazing clients work and printing it for them.
We ship Australia wide and most orders ship next day or within 48 hours of ordering.
I have alot of photography contacts so if you’re looking for a Photographer in a certain area I might be able to put you onto someone.
