About Print n Sign
Print n Sign is in Ontdekkerspark, Roodepoort, South Africa. They do digital and litho printing and digital and cut vinyl signage.
They are also print brokers for a number of products and can therefore supply at very competitive prices.
They say the business started as a hobby in 1992.
They were one of the first businesses in town to buy an HP 500C Colour Printer and Corel Draw 2.
After learning to do the basic graphic designs and printing it they started marketing everything they could print on the printer; business cards (on thin, ink absorbable card!), letterheads, compliment slips, brochures, flyers etc. Anything in full colour and small quantities which they knew a litho machine could not match in price. There weren't even colour copiers at that stage.
The business flourished and they bought a large house in a modern suburb, near their children's school and all the while they were using the most basic and cheapest technology available to do business with.
They called themselves Mini Print.
This went on until 1998, when Tom decided to quit working for a boss and went into the print and design business full time.
Beginning 2007 they decided to start a signage business as well. Although start up costs were high, the business is growing steadily and they are proud to be able to deliver an outstanding service to all their existing and future clients.
Tom says Google really helps them with their marketing. The Print n Sign website has a lot of number one hits in google.co.za for a lot of keywords.
