Professional. Helpful. Cost Effective. Innovative. Quick!
We believe these words pretty well describe what we do, and how we go about it.
A little history…
D-Print started life in 2010 – a small digital printing business with a loyal client base of trade print buyers.
After some structural changes in 2013 and a re-evaluation of what our clients’ needs were, D-Print streamlined its business and introduced additional in-demand services and products.
After seven successful and very enjoyable years of operation, D-Print is now combining the latest digital print technology, with traditional printing equipment, and all the relevant print finishing equipment, to enable us to offer unique products to the retail and trade printing, and graphic design sectors.
David’s background in Pre-Press and Colour Management allows him to offer high-end finished art, image & colour management services, specialising in fine art & fashion printing for example, where the colour is critical.
You’re not limited to printing with D-Print to avail of these services. This is an image retouching and finished artwork service where we work closely with the designers, photographers and printer of your choice, either local or offshore to help produce the highest quality print result possible. We recommend ISO Certified printing companies to complement this service.
Because we are a small operation – we can provide nimble, flexible, competitive and rapid services. We are also open to reasonable negotiation with our clients!
Add to this that you’ll only have one point of contact so you know your project will always meet its brief.
Who is D-Print?
D is for David…
D-Print founder and director, David Jackson, was born and raised in Leeds in the UK. After a few years of initial resistance, and trying other things such as standard office jobs in insurance (snore), and working as a chef in various pubs and bars (no life, no money, fun though).
He joined the family business and apprentice-trained as a Lithographic Artist back in the days of manual film planning. He has transferred these skills into the digital workspace, and transferred his life from the frozen wastelands of the north of England to the sunny shores of Sydney in 2000.
Since emigrating, David has worked at various pre-press, graphic design and printing companies over the years. Filling roles in production, management and sales. He has been there, seen it, and then done it all!
David has implemented colour management schemes enabling ISO certification, streamlined production and introduced innovative cost and time saving procedures at all previous employers, then he decided his talents were wasted on un-appreciative bosses (I know, they’re all the same!)
He prides himself on being able to identify potential production issues before they go to press and is happy to fix them (normally for free) if you’re nice to him!
He relishes a challenge and loves to get involved in the more complex and innovative projects.
David also likes non-work stuff such as tennis, cycling, drinking beer with friends and all sorts of other pastimes that are preferable to working. And quite recently, raising a very cute, quite mischievous, soon to be printer: Emily, along with his partner Alison.
