Print Companies on the Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is known everywhere as that sun-blessed and very long strip south of Queensland’s capital, Brisbane. Gold Coast City is the second most populous city in Queensland, and the most populous non-capital city in Australia.
With its sunny, subtropical climate, miles and miles of surfing beaches, canals and waterways, its acres of high-rise apartments, nightlife and rainforest in the hinterland, the Gold Coast is, of course, a major tourist destination. Besides serving the needs of a jumping commercial economy, print companies are naturally busy with a booming market for postcards!
Fifty years ago, the Gold Coast was a small beachside holiday destination, but is now Australia’s fastest growing city. Tourism is fundamental to its economy, but the city’s base also includes marine, education, information technology, creative, environmental and sports industries. Not surprisingly, Gold Coast City is also the centre for Queensland’s film production, the third largest in Australia. Tourists can enjoy a dizzying array of theme parks or themed shows with their kids – Dreamworld, Seaworld, Warner Brothers Movie World, the Outback Spectacular , the Wet ‘n Wild Water Park – or head for quieter entertainment in sanctuaries in the hinterland or along the coast.
Gold Coast suburb Burleigh Heads, famous to obsessive Burleigh beach-goers for its surf break, is also known for bustling James Street, with its cafes, delis, restaurants and retailers. Locals and visitors alike enjoy ‘The Point’, Burleigh’s headland, for the view, the barbeques and the spontaneous music in the evenings. West Burleigh, besides its shopping-centre drawcard for the Hawaiian shirt brigade, also has a thriving local industry and a quiet suburban residential sector.
Print companies do well on the Gold Coast, with a market that has diverse needs from business cards and stationery, to postcards, full colour printing of all sorts, flyers, brochures, posters and catalogues, digital and banner printing.
