The Print Group Australia in collaboration with our sister company Padtastic Personalised Notepads worked with well-known Australian blogger – Leanne Baker on the development of the Leanne Baker Daily (LBD) Planner for 2017. Leanne is the blogger behind “Organising the Four of Us” and offers fantastic tips and advice on renovating, organising and simplifying the family home. Leanne also offers online workshops in her “Project 14” series offering in-depth advice which focuses on a variety of topics from helping organise your household and family time, to promoting and encouraging self-care.
Leanne’s mission is to help other women find balance, make memories and live with intention. The LBD Planner was born from her passion of organisation and she collaborated with The Print Group Australia and the Padtastic design team to bring this idea to life.
The LBD 2017 Planner has everything you need to organise your every day. From monthly overviews to weekly meal planning pages and daily routines, the Leanne Baker Daily Planner has everything you need to simplify 2017. Each day has a designated space for your list of three, an easy to manage to do list and most importantly, a reminder to take time for you.

Many training organisations print their training materials in-house in the belief that this is the only cost effective option available to them. Today we will discuss how an in-house cost analysis of printing your training material will help you understand the value of outsourcing and that printing in-house may be costing your business much more than you realise.
A detailed cost analysis of any particular function within your business is always a good start to understanding true costs. For training organisations, a cost analysis of printing your training materials is important.
Here are some examples of what to consider in your cost analysis:
Bert Van Manen MP is the Federal Member for the Ford electorate. He is often out and about within the community and wanted a unique printed piece that he could leave at the residences of those he missed. Letterboxes are so often full of your standard brochures from political parties, so The Print Group Australia
The Print Group Australia specialise in printing training materials for the Education and Training sector in Australia. Looking closer at the learning options available to students in both primary, secondary and tertiary education there is a widely debated topic regarding the benefit of online learning and classroom learning.
In the fast moving pace of this digital era, it’s important to maintain a balance between these two learning environments. There are a number of factors to consider when determining to move to an online learning forum as there are many valuable applications of digital learning. The market you are targeting and the type of content you are teaching are key items to consider here. We would like to touch base on the benefits of the classroom learning environment and directly, the benefits of using pen and paper for learning.
The benefits of writing by hand has been a widely discussed topic. Whilst technology has greatly affected the way people interact and study, there is nothing like writing by hand that strengthens the learning process. The more that students write their notes, the more they will learn and retain new information.
The Print Group Australia exhibited at the VELG Training, 2016 National Vet Conference last week (15th & 16th September, 2016) at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre and what an event it was!
This year was the 10th anniversary of VELG Training’s National VET Conference (NVC), making the 2016 theme of ‘Celebrating VET’ even more fitting.
The event was well organised and we really enjoyed meeting the attendees and discussing print options for training materials and certificates. The circus themed welcome reception was a playful and fun night had by all, with the VELG team handing out red clown noses to the exhibitors – a great way to relax and network into the evening!
You may have heard of white space in design, but what makes this so important and why is it essential in design?
White space refers to the space left in between elements of your design. It is also often referred to as negative space, but don’t let the name worry you – it’s a good thing! It is essential for a balanced and harmonious layout and without it your design would look cluttered and overcrowded. While the term used is white space, it does not necessarily mean it is white. The space may be any colour or texture that represents the negative space in your design.
There are 2 types of white space. Active white space is the space left blank intentionally for better layout or structure. Passive white space is the empty space around the outside of the page or blank areas inside the content which is the by-product of the layout process.
White space is a fundamental building block of good design for good reason. Not to be thought of as a waste of space, it can be strategically used in design to transform and highlight design elements and key messages.

Every brand needs a style guide. The key is not to overcomplicate it. Some corporations have 200 page style guides, others only have a simple 4 page style guide. It’s important to be clear and concise when setting your style guide. Here are some points for you to consider:
