Alan Thomas - Managing Director
Alan left the ranks of teaching to give birth to Print City in 1972. He recognised the need for a new breed of printer to service Melbourne businesses – a printer who was in tune with client’s modern needs; speed and quality, an improved level of customer service, and at a reasonable price.
Alan was on the board of Quick Printers Association of Australia for 7 years, and has been recognised with awards from the USA, commending him for making the print world a better place. He also ran three Pacific Print Congresses – a trade and delegate show profiling the print market in Australia, helping others in the industry cope with the digital revolution.
Alan has created a company that covers a wide range of printing options. Always at the cutting edge of technology, Alan is constantly looking to improve the Print City product. From new machinery to developing relationships with our suppliers, it all keeps Print City at the forefront of CBD printing.
Mason Thomas - Production Manager
Mason joined the family company in 1996. After a few years in journalism, he became immersed in the printing industry. Adept at client relations, Mason works with the client to give them their options, keeps them informed of progress, and ensures client deadlines are always met, if not surpassed!
With 16 years experience, Mason has overseen the transition of Print City from specialist Offset print company, to a business more focused on client’s need, covering both Offset and a range of Digital Options. From quote inception to final delivery, Mason follows the job through to ensure the client can display their printed product with pride.
Grant McDonald - Graphics Manager
After working for a few smaller print related companies, Grant joined the Print City staff in 2001. He is the expert file fixer – from a problematic Powerpoint file, to issues with Illustrator transparencies, Grant takes great delight in finding the problem, fixing the issue and preparing the file for print.
Whether you need a design created from scratch, or just want your existing file to be given some punch, Grant knows what is possible and has plenty of ideas to give your printing more impact. The end product is only as good as the artwork, and Grant ensures we can produce quality prints.
