  • OUR SIGNAGE CAPABILITIES - NO LIMITS
    FRIDAY 14 NOVEMBER 2014

    Category: Production

    The past month has been very busy in production with some specialised signage requirements for a new venue on the Sunshine Coast, Flanagan’s Irish Pub.

    Working closely with the architect and interior designers, we used our extensive branding and signage capabilities to roll out a number of different signage applications throughout the interior of the Venue. Some of these included the production of stencils which were used for sandblasting onto glass, 3 dimensional signage on gold mirror, intricate directional signage and wallpaper graphics. All of these applications required specialty skills which were finished and installed by our team of dedicated production professionals.

    We are proud of the results which have exceeded our client’s expectations. We are always working on new ways to utilise our state-of-the-art print machinery. Pushing the limits is what sets us apart from our competitors.





  • PROUDLY SUPPORTING YOUNGCARE
    WEDNESDAY 29 OCTOBER 2014

    Category: Our Team Community

    We’re feeling all warm inside here at the Copirite office and it has nothing to do with the soaring temperatures outside!

    Today we received a beautiful card from one of the charities that we proudly support that has resulted in the warm fuzzies hitting. Beautifully embossed and hand signed by the Youngcare team – it certainly was the nicest thing to hit our letterbox in a while. Thank you in turn to our wonderful clients who support us and provide us with the ability to make a contribution to the causes that are close to our hearts.

  • ONE50 - WELCOME TO OUR NEW CLIENT
    THURSDAY 10 APRIL 2014

    Category: Clients

    The opening of one of the Gold Coast’s latest hospitality venues has been eagerly anticipated by our team and surrounding businesses. Launched in mid March, the One50 Public House, is located just around the corner from us, at 150 Bundall Road.

    The site previously occupied by Surfers Rowers, has had a extensive interior and exterior renovation. It features a swish New York inspired fit-out, and trades from breakfast through to late night cocktails. It’s a place we’ve already frequented for offsite client catch ups as well as unwinding after the working week. Well worth checking out!

    The team at Copirite are proud to be providing this new establishment with graphic design services and have completed our first few projects for it’s launch, including function pack design, launch flyer design, print and distribution, and design of various promotional artworks.

    Best of luck to the team at One50 with this new venture.







  • OUR MYOB TO XERO CONVERSION - ZERO LOST & PLENTY GAINED
    WEDNESDAY 25 SEPTEMBER 2013

    Category: Our Team

    There is a strong similarity between our recent transitioning of our accounting system from desktop software MYOB to cloud based Xero, to the approaching birth of a child. As the due date drew closer for our conversion, I couldn’t wait for MYOB to be out. Excited, full of fear and trepidation, I couldn’t concentrate on many other tasks. Xero was coming soon and our lives were about to change forever; or so my developers kept telling me. Read more…





  • TYPE IS GOLDEN
    WEDNESDAY 11 SEPTEMBER 2013

    Category: Our Team

    What an awesome turnout for the first ever Typism http://typism.com.au conference on the Gold Coast.
    A room full of passionate font geeks ready from 9am to take in a full day of font frothing.

    The speakers were awesome, thanks to our host Dominique Fella. For me the highlights were from local brand designer Matt Vergotis who I could have listened to for another 5 hours on brand strategy, logo development and client relations, and Brisbane printmaker Nicole Phillips who seems to have ink flowing in her veins. I have never heard anyone speak more articulately & passionately about print, ink & press.

    Wayne Thompson, founder of http://www.atf.com.au was truly inspiring. To get an understanding of the time and energy that goes into designing a full type family including weights and glyphs blew me away.

    Thinking back on it now, all the speakers were completely engaging and they all brought a clever, insightful depiction of their life with typography and I was captivated throughout the day. I’m totally chuffed that finally the GC has a platform like Typism, for designers to share their experiences. Typism delivered a massive exclamation mark! Cant wait for the next one!

  • COPIRITE AWARDED 2 YEAR CONTRACT WITH PA RESEARCH FOUNDATION
    TUESDAY 30 JULY 2013

    Category: Clients

    Copirite is delighted to announce that we have been successful in our tender proposal to provide services to the PA Research Foundation for the next 2 years including major branding, campaigns, newsletters and graphic design of other publications and collateral materials.

    Our team has worked on many projects with the PA in past years including the recent Breast Cancer fundraiser through all ALH Group’s Queensland venues. Our creative concept of die cut bras to be hung throughout the venues with messages of hope was successful in engaging patrons and staff alike, as well as donations for each bra contributing valuable funds for the Foundation and this cause.

    We look forward to raising the PA Research Foundation profile and associated campaigns.





  • MEN'S HEALTH CAMPAIGN - IT WILL AFFECT U
    THURSDAY 13 JUNE 2013

    Category: Clients Community

    June 10-16th is Men’s Health Week, and we’re proud to team up with the PA Research Foundation again to support this worthy cause. This years campaign centres around getting your man to ‘Muscle Up’ for Men’s Health – manning up and getting in to see the doc for a general check up. To give them some incentive, apart from good health, the PA team came up with the concept of a ManDate Leave Pass. Visit mandate.org.au; purchase a pass which provides the foundation with funds to provide further research, but also gives your man a ‘free pass’ to do as he pleases for an afternoon / a day – whatever you are willing to give – in return for his health check. Not a bad deal, we think!

    The creative team at Copirite have been involved in all aspects of this campaign – graphic design, web design and development, social media graphics, print production and distribution and the major Appeal direct mail design and production. Some of the digital pieces are shown here, and the TVC is also live now.

    Visit www.mandate.org.au and give your man – partner / brother / dad / son / mate / uncle / grandpa – the gift that could just save his life.
