Queensland outfit Inhouse Print & Design is
bringing wide format company Queensland
Posters into the fold in a merger to combine
manpower, exper tise and their two national
Queensland Posters, run by Marc
Fleming ton, has been producing wide format
print, point of sale and large format display
for the local Queensland and national
Australian market for 15 years.
The two companies have been sharing jobs
for years, and have decided to make it of ficial.
Richard Tillotson, print production manager
with Inhouse, tells AP, “Before we got into
wide format ourselves, Queensland Posters
was producing work for our clients, and we
would supply their customers with smaller
printed products. Slowly but surely over the
years we have been using each other more
and more, and finally decided to jump into
bed together at the beginning of the year.
“Marc has a wealth of knowledge and has
been in the game since basically day one, so
he has a vast experience of the dif ferent
applications and possibilities with dif ferent
substrates. He was there in the wide format
space early in the piece, so he has seen it all
come and go. Now we are able to offer both of
our customer bases a range of printed
products under the one roof, so we can also
manage colour consistency and the overall
look of the print.”
The merger will also allow Flemington time
to visit existing and potential customers out
in the field, as Inhouse’s staf f can take care of
production back at the factor y.
And rather than hire a third party to carry
out installations and assessments, Tillotson
says Fleming ton and the Inhouse team will
now be able to take care of most of this work
themselves. He says, “It has just made
every thing easier for everyone, and we are
making big savings along the way.”
Fleming ton has now moved his equipment
into Inhouse’s Underwood factory in
Brisbane. Inhouse also runs a recently
purchased Roland LE J 640 UV hybrid machine
and plotter cutter, and for f inishing a three-
way trimmer, per fect binder and two new
Eurofold creasing and folding machines.
Tillotson says the focus for its machiner y is
to produce work on a wide range of materials.
He says, “We have settled on some simple
machines with our plotters, cutters,
laminators and celloglaze applicators.”
Inhouse also offers general printing and
perfect bound books, and is soon to add a
publishing arm to its business.
Inhouse thinks big with wide format merger

driven success, “We have b een market
