In 1994, three leading Nelson print companies; General Print, Enterprise Print and Stiles, came together to form Printhouse. For over 12 years now Printhouse has been providing printing services to a wide range of customers from manufacturers, tourism operators, hospitality, professional services and the general public.

In February 2007 Printhouse acquired Impress Print.

This enabled us to combine their vastly experienced staff,  traditional craftsmanship with our state of the art technology to further enhance our ability and great service to the Nelson region.

In February 2009 Printhouse relocated to our new purpose built facility in the Wakatu Industrial Estate, directly between our regions major centres.
At the same time we invested in a fully automatic Heidelberg offset printing press that provide us with even greater productivity, quality of work and saving to our clients.

Environmental Policy

To minimise waste wherever possible

We are committed to the protection of our environment on a sustainable basis.
By endeavouring to reduce our and our client’s impact on the planet.
We will provide our clients with environmentally sound print options, whilst maintaining the high quality work standards expected of our company.
We look to achieve this by –

  • Reducing wastage produced and sent to landfill.
  • Sourcing paper from sustainably managed forests that are processed by environmentally accredited paper mills.
  • Exclusively using vegetable oil-based inks for the last 5 years.
  • The installation in 1995 of New Zealand’s first chemical-free printing plate-making system. This means no chemicals that need to be disposed of into the environment.
  • Installing in 2009 an Optical Plate Punch. This device dramatically reduced the amount of paper, ink, time and energy needed to have a colour print job “ made ready “ to run.

Nelson is an isolated community, over 400 km from the nearest paper suppliers. By using your local print company - Printhouse, you can significantly lower the carbon footprint required to produce printing services for you – ask us how?

Buying locally produced products is an economic and environmental Win – Win situation.

This policy is a constant work in progress.
We do what we can and constantly review what we do!

In tough times you need to be innovative to survive and thrive - and we are!
