Simon was also kind enough to leave us this glorious review on Google.

'The finest printer in all the land!

I've been working with Colourcraft for over 12 years and they've never let me down. Conversely, I have let them down many times with ridiculous requests due to my lack of planning and preparation and they have never complained or cut me loose, amazing really.

When all those other printers get wobbly legs and start dropping out of the race, crying out for water and complaining that their legs are sore. Colourcraft are gliding majestically out in front, effortlessly, unmercifully crushing their competition with the greatest service a customer could ever hope for.
Even on the small jobs, they go the extra mile. Their expert advice and guidance has steered me in the right direction when my hair-brained ideas could have ended in absolute disaster.

They know their stuff. I'm stirred to write a poem about how much I appreciate Colourcraft but I think this review will lose all credibility if I do, so I shall refrain. I'd give them 6 stars if Google would let me. Colourcraft is Wellingtons printer of choice.'

Bottle Wrap for Garage Project Mutiny on the Bounty

For Garage Project last beer release for 2016, they saved the best for last! Mutiny on the Bounty - a very South Pacific take on an Export Stout brewed with Breadfruit, roasted Plantain, Coconut and Tahitian Vanilla.

Tim Gibson of Flying Whities was commissioned to create the design and we were asked to print the bottles rather unique paper wrap. This project had a tight deadline as Garage Project needed to launch in the days leading up to Christmas.

To get the printing done in time, we split the project in half. In the final working days of 2016, we digitally printed and foiled several hundred wraps delivering to Garage Project in time to meet the Christmas demand. Then in 2017 we offset printed several thousand additional wraps and foiled and die cut each. Delivering the wraps to Garage Project in January 2017 ready to meet what will likely be a huge demand for the beer.

Label Design & Print for Emporio Coffee

Emporio Coffee one of the original Wellington coffee roasters wanted to distribute its coffee in 250g & 500g retail pouches. They wanted a simple and effective label to close the pack and inform the consumer of grind, blend and weight.

In collaboration with Simon at Emporio, we designed a two piece label for each pouch size that could be customised by marking the grind on the top of the pouch.

To identify the coffee blend we produced an additional smaller label that can be hand applied on top of the larger grey label. This kept the product looking consistent on shelf regardless of who packed it (and how tidy their handwriting is) and lowered the print cost as the same base label could be produced in greater volumes and then customised as new blends are produced.

Hallertau Resurgence Tap Badges

Hallertau asked us to produce a special gold foiled tap badge for the seasonal release of their Resurgence Strong NZ Pale Ale.

Hallertau wanted this to match the gold foiled finish of their bottle labels but it was not practical to apply gold foil to the removable self-adhesive vinyl that we produce tap badges from. So instead we started with a metallic gold vinyl, then printed several coats of white ink to mask out the areas of the badge that should not be metallic. Then we overprinted this white mask with the coloured background before kiss cutting each badge to shape. We were really happy with how they came out.

What does your heart beat for collateral

Arise Church began in 2002 and grew from a group of 7 people in a small dance and drama studio to a church of thousands in 8 locations around New Zealand.

Arise wanted to communicate with its members its goals for expansion and to achieve this designed a beautiful set of printed collateral including a brochure, envelope and bookmark, which we printed over a few weeks in September of 2017.

However, the most special part of the project was producing a display made up of over 275 hanging hearts some sized over a meter wide. These were printed on a rigid 3mm Paylite material and computer cut to shape, before being dispatched to 7 locations around the country. We were very pleased with how they came out.

Printing a typography specimen for Eliza

Eliza designed a well thought-out typography specimen named 'Twenty Typefaces that changed the world' and asked us to print it.

This document contained two parts, a smaller A5 saddle stapled booklet and a larger 200 x 290mm perfect bound book.

The saddle staple booklet included a laser cut cover Eliza arranged, and a perfect bound book received a slit and pocket on the inside of the cover to hold the A5.

Promotional Printing for Promisia

We printed a pull-up banner and several hundred posters for Promisia and Stacey the client was kind enough to give us a testimonial.

"We received a slick promotional package from Colourcraft which was compelling so we thought we'd give them a go for a small print job, although we were very happy with our current print supplier at that time. Since then, we've entrusted them with key promotional printing and conference assets as their quality is excellent, let alone their customer service and attention to detail. The turnaround time is outstanding - as an example, Colourcraft had provided a print proof and completed our print job including delivery before another company had even managed to organise a print proof. If you have high expectations as we do, use Colourcraft."

Folded Keg Collars for Heyday Beer Co

We are lucky enough to produce tap badges for quite a few brewery clients scattered across the country. Several of these clients needed a way to attach a tap badge to the keg during transit and we thought we could help.

We designed a folded keg collar, that can enclose the tap badge and protect it during transit. After a bit of testing we identified a suitable carton board that stands up to cold storage well and a keg collar shape that is easy to fold while attaching to the keg securely.

We showed a few clients the concept and both Epic and Heyday Beer Co quickly placed orders.
