New Mimaki Dye-Sub Printer Triples Production at Lifestyle Australia

May 25, 2016

Few Australian textile and souvenir printing companies can boast such a long and progressive history as Brisbane’s Lifestyle Australia. Lifestyle started business in the far north Queensland (FNQ) city of Townsville in 1979 when Lin Petterwood commenced making T-shirts for the region’s screen printers. Then known as Townsville T-shirts, the following year Petterwood bought out a local screen printer and became the largest T-shirt printer in the tourist-rich area of FNQ.

Success followed quickly, so the business relocated to the state capital Brisbane in the 1980s and re-branded as Lifestyle Australia, distributing Australia’s largest range of printed souvenirs across the nation. By 1992, Lifestyle was growing at such a pace that it needed to install Australia’s first 12-colour screen printing carousel, followed by an automated 16-colour machine in 1999. As digital sublimation technologies improved, Lifestyle introduced this promising new process in 2004.

Fujifilm in largest ever drupa showing

April 1, 2016

Never before has the industry seen such a major Fujifilm presence at a drupa trade fair. There must be good reasons why Hall 8b will feature over 2,000 square metres of floorspace from the Japanese imaging giant; mirrored by a virtually identical area opposite from partner company Xerox, known as Fuji Xerox in Asia Pacific. It’s all about new products, initiatives, thinking and, as the company theme says: “Value from Innovation.”

Fujifilm Corporation’s remarkable turn-around from a predominantly photographic film and development company, into a broad-spectrum digital imaging and consumables conglomerate continues apace as it prepares for its largest ever drupa presence. In addition to the main Fujifilm areas in Hall 8b, there is another stand in Heidelberg’s Hall 1 in support of the two company’s partnership which covers prepress, plates and consumables as well as Fujifilm’s Dimatix inkjet printhead technologies to be released in the Heidelberg Primefire range of digital presses.
