Business description


First time to market, 56 Years established printing business. Simplified to a print brokering business with 20-year-old clients and minimum overheads yielding high 30’s in Net profit and very easily run.

Location Details | Currently located in Melbourne’s Western suburbs - could easily be run from home, even further reducing this low overhead business.

About the Business| Owners contribution

At present this business is run by a mother and son, both working part time with a total of 40 hours per week. Flourishing off long-standing loyal customers, this business has clients that have been with the business for over 20 years. Strong relationships, ease of use and great quality printing have been their benchmark. These simple values have maintained its longevity. 

Owner has not sought new clients as owner’s new company has enjoyed enormous success, and now demands more time.  A genuine sale of desire over necessity.

Day to day includes liaising with clients on job requests and minor amendments to printing needs, advanced design requirements can be out sourced accordingly for an unskilled owner and currently with minimal printing/design experience the business is run solely by both owner and mother, both of whom have limited design knowledge.

Once a complete factory set-up, the current model is a very lean business model with little to no fixed expenses.

This business has been in the family for 56- years now and current owner is very passionate about passing it on to a new buyer with strong support in place. A very efficient model with detailed systems, solid clients, minimal & reliable suppliers, and presents as a great lifestyle opportunity to own your own business.

Rent | $90 PW

Skills | Basic printing knowledge as all print-work is outsourced. Competent with PDF’s / Adobe illustrator / Corel-Draw. Would suit a sales background to further increase client base.

A print broker should add value to a print project through effective planning and management. Relying upon their knowledge of manufacturing materials and processes, workflow issues, and judgment on timing. Included in training.

Training | 1 weeks included in sale and ongoing with owners’ mother until familiar at arranged minimum cost. To be negotiated in sales contract.

Potential | This business has run on existing clients with little to no marketing allocated to expand. This is a perfect opportunity for a driven sales person/owner to capitalise on the history of this long-standing company to further increase sales.

With the product/contacts/systems in place & current reputation, the infrastructure could allow for massive growth only adding to an already tidy profit line.

A perfect add on for an existing print shop to increase sales and inherit longstanding customers. Current model requires outsourcing of services and still turns a tidy profit, even with attrition accounted for, the increase in Gross profit with inhouse servicing could add further savings to the bottom line. (based off current discretionary expenses not transferable to add-on of existing business operation and lowering of printing expenses from inhouse production)

Reason for Sale | Retirement (mother)  Other business opportunity has taken off- diverting owner’s attention.

History | 56-year trading history.
