AWARD: Bambra only Aussie co to get Arjowiggins certification for premium printing
Melbourne-based Bambra Press has become the only Australian print business to be certified by the Arjowiggins Academy of Certified Printers.
The Academy Of Certified Printers was created by paper manufacturer Arjowiggins to promote and encourage exceptional printing by some of the most precise printers in the world. Only 30 print businesses around the world have been certified, with Bambra the only one in Australia.
Stephen Haas, CEO at Bambra Press said, “As a key printing partner of many exacting clients, we are always on the pursuit of perfection. This was a real motivation for us to take on the challenge of certification. Bambra has always had a high focus on quality print, this was an opportunity to show that is a reality."
Haas said one of the spin-offs of the certification may be new work for international brands who require printing to standards.
The principle of the Academy is simple: to certify printers who are capable of accurately reproducing a complex job comprising of four key printing techniques: offset, screen printing, hot foil stamping and blind embossing.
Haas said, “An international jury of paper, print and design experts reviewed our printing work, and awarded Bambra as the only Australian printer to achieve this prestigious certification. The jury appreciated the efforts we went to saying that ‘These were some of the best pieces of work submitted.'
"A big thanks to our partners - Avon Graphics and Ancyn Screenprinting - we couldn’t have done it without you.” He described the process to gain certificaiotn as "exacting".
