Print Companies in West Melbourne
At three kilometres distant, it’s only a step or two from West Melbourne to the Melbourne CBD. This is an area of contrasts and boundless interest; the Queen Victoria market is around the corner – the largest open air fresh food and vegetable market in Melbourne – and young professionals are everywhere renovating nineteenth century terraces and converting warehouses. Buildings of architectural and historical interest have been preserved by a heritage-conscious local government, and the Flagstaff Gardens are a welcome and historic patch of green in the urban landscape.
There are, not surprisingly for an area so close to the city, many restaurants and numerous hotels, some of whom also benefit from the great influx of young backpackers of the last few years.
There is still a lot of industry too, and a large part of West Melbourne consists of the Port of Melbourne and the Dynon Railway yards. Altogether, it is a vibrant area, where local cafes and small businesses benefit as much from the lunchtime office crowd and workers in local industry as from the locals. Well placed in Spencer Street to be close to much of the activity of the area, Minuteman demonstrates what the print industry can gain from multi-faceted West Melbourne.
West Melbourne is alive and active for most of the day, from daylight hours when business and industry is hard at work, to the evenings when eating, music and entertainment come to the fore. The demand is there for business card, digital and full colour printing, and also for brochure, flyer and poster printing. In addition, with Melbourne itself a stone’s throw away and attractive to many international visitors, postcards are also popular.
With its wide streets, trams and train line – oddly, the North Melbourne station is situated in West Melbourne – West Melbourne is accessible and ready for business.
