Prima Printing rebrands to become Prima
Personalised consumer products operation Prima has removed Printing from its name, and rebranded with a new website and vibrant set of logos, in order, it says, to better reflect its diversity in the market.
Prima - based in Melbourne - claims to be the largest manufacturer of personalised consumer products in Australia and New Zealand. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of District Photo, the largest manufacturer of photo gifting products in the world, which was only formed five years ago.
According to Ian Zbiegniewski, account executive at Prima, the decision to rebrand and remove the word Printing from the company name signifies that it is ready to step up from a pure print focus, and become a well-known brand with a reputation that precedes it.
He said, “Printing is only one step of the process. We pride ourselves on our partnerships with our customers, strategic suppliers and our wider district family. We wanted our brand to holistically represent the way we do things differently, through innovation, and our drive to always do better", adding that Prima aims to print, manufacture and ship all its products to its partners' end customers in the quickest, cheapest way possible, with the highest quality standards.
“We offer a huge point of difference in the market, and wanted to be able to convey that in a meaningful way,’ added Zbiegniewski, confirming that the company’s growth and urge to promote its values were also factors that conntributed to the local rebrand.
“Prima came into existence because we saw an opportunity to do something better. We saw how we could work with local and international experts to bring the best technology to our clients. We saw the opportunity to build long-term brand relationships, working side by side with businesses, adapting and creating tailored solutions, to optimise operations and outcomes for all,” he said.
Zbiegniewski says that, over the past five years, the company has been focused on research, development and design, new product innovation, AI, software development and infrastructure.
“The final piece was developing our branding as we look to further expand across the personalised gifting and DTG market."
Mindful of the continued disruptions in the global supply chain, Prima’s furture plans involve the formation of new and long-lasting partnerships, as it believes that local and global brands can take advantage of its economies of scale and its local market expertise, says Zbiegniewski.
“We don’t believe in one-way relationships; we believe in partnerships. By enabling our customers to leverage our competitive advantage and dominate in their markets, we grow together,” he said.
