A Tasmanian Printing Story.

G W. Woolston

Woolston Printing began in 1925 as G.W. Woolston and Son, High-Class Printers. Established in the garage of G.W. Woolston’s home, by 1931 they were operating out of 67 George St, Launceston, Tasmania.

The current owners of Woolston Printing are G.W. Woolston’s great grandsons. Over the past 95 years, times have certainly changed in the printing industry, but Woolston Printing remain steadfast to their original aim, to provide high quality commercial work at moderate prices.



Today, Woolston Printing’s services have increased statewide and interstate. They are now  headquartered in a modern, 1650sqm purpose-built, print facility at Western Junction, Tasmania. Woolston Printing currently exports in excess of 20% of product manufactured and has print hubs in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. The continual investment made by Woolston Printing in upgraded machinery gives them the edge on large run printing, binding and embellishing services.


The dedicated sales staff at Woolston Printing have a strategic, methodical approach to before and after sales care. All customers are serviced with face to face visits, regular phone contact and email follow up. Satisfied customers comment on efficient, prompt, excellent service:

“The posters just arrived – thank you! You guys are legends. Always so quick!! We really appreciate all you do and we love working with you!”

Woolston Printing has capacity for short, long and variable data print runs; coupled with warehousing, inventory and distribution options. The importance of personalised marketing is recognised – Woolston Printing co-ordinates mailing and database management, all tailored to the specific need of customers.

The digital age? Yes, Woolston Printing is again at the forefront. Equipment is being continuously upgraded to meet the demands of our markets. Having had both digital and offset capabilities for some time, we have expanded into hybrid machines and include wide format printing as a service.

Dedicated to the environment, Woolston Printing’s purpose-built facilities are designed and built to efficient energy use standards. The building is topped with 260 solar panels, which reduces their overall demand for grid power by 85%. A sustainable waste extraction and paper baling unit has been installed to minimise the impact on the environment. In early 2016, a new shredding machine was commissioned, linking to the extraction system. Woolston Printing are continuously looking for ways to minimise their environmental impact.
