An Australian Printing Company

An Australian Printing Company Success Story.

G. W. Woolston Portrait

G W. Woolston, founder of Woolston Printing 1925.

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 we were operating out of 67 George St, Launceston, Tasmania.

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



Today Woolston Printing’s services have increased state wide and interstate. We are now headquartered in a modern 1650sqm purpose-built print facility located by Launceston Airport in Tasmania. Currently exporting in excess of 40% of our printed products we have print hubs in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. We have made continual investment in upgraded machinery, giving us the edge on large run printing, binding and embellishing services.


The dedicated Woolston Printing sales staff 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.


Expanding our Digital Capabilities

The digital age? Yes, we are at the forefront with equipment being continually upgraded to meet the demands of our markets. We have had both digital and offset capabilities for some time, and have expanded into hybrid machines and include wide format printing as a service.

Lessening our Environmental Impact

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 our overall demand for grid power by 85%. We have installed a sustainable waste extraction and paper baling unit to minimise the impact on the environment. In early 2016, a new shredding machine was commissioned, linking to the extraction system. We are continuously looking for ways to minimise their environmental impact.
