We are adding very competitively priced NEW PRODUCTS constantly, so if you are revisiting our site, please check the list below carefully! We have just updated our docket books page (invoice books, receipt books, order books etc.) with substantially reduced pricing and more options. We have also just updated our jumbo postcard size making them bigger, a better fit to our envelopes, but the same price.
We have added ‘flexible’ and ‘volume’ options to our some of our products. Flexible options offer increased choice, production speed and often the opportunity to have a number of designs included in the price at no extra cost. Volume options don’t offer as many options and take longer to turn around. However the price is often considerably less.
We have recently added white papers on Digital Printing and Environmentally Friendly Printing. Access them by clicking here.

Our printing website is easy to use
This is an easy website to navigate around – the products and resources are always on the left of the screen, the prices are always on the left of each product page, and our logo is at the top of almost every page so you can always return ‘home’ or contact us. Products, resources and pricing remain visible and easily accessible no matter how far you need to scroll down a page. Wherever it seems appropriate, pages will open up in a separate window as an aid to navigation. You can easily have more than one product page open at once to compare prices. We have tried to make the ordering process a simple, logical, sequential process.
Our website is resource rich
Our site contains a vast and growing range of resources designed to inform, to educate, to prevent mistakes, to help you make your product better and to help you promote your products. Our introductory pages contain much useful information. We have a very detailed section to assist you in preparing your files. We have written (and continue to write) a number of white papers on various aspects of printing. There is an extensive glossary of printing terms. Once you get to the stage of signing off a PDF or hard copy proof, we send you a link to a thorough checklist to help you avoid signing off what you should not have signed off. All this information flows from a life time of experience as a bookseller, then a printer.
Our printing process is convenient
You can arrange everything that is needed from the convenience of your own desk. Restricting yourself to doing business during business hours is a thing of the past. You do business with us at your convenience.
You can place your orders whenever it suits you. In fact our experience has been that most of our business arrives electronically out of normal business hours. We often respond to it out of normal business hours too!
Order any quantity from a few to tens of thousands
We are small quantity specialists. Most printers, including online printers, only offer ‘offset’ quantities — that is, from 250 or 500 copies and upwards.
We are one of the most experienced digital printing organisations in Australia. We have been using digital presses since the birth of digital printing in the 1990s. Digital presses have very low start-up costs per job. Unlike conventional presses, they do not need expensive printing plates, and there is no need to ‘run up’ the press using hundreds of sheets to adjust colours. The job is usually ready to print after the second or third sheet. As a result, we can offer very small quantities for almost all our products.
We are also very experienced conventional printers, so you can price and order from 25 copies, and in some cases less, to 25,000 copies on our web site. If these quantities don’t meet your needs, you can ask for a custom quote.
We are quality printers
Our aim is NOT to produce printing at the lowest price no matter what. We are an online printing company, operated by highly experienced people who use top quality equipment to fulfil our aim which is to produce excellent printing, delivered on time, at a competitive price.
We are full colour printing specialists
These days the difference in the cost of full colour printing compared to two colour or black and white printing is not great. We use state-of-the-art equipment, operated by highly experienced staff to produce quality full colour printing. Full colour flyers and brochures attract people’s attention and spell QUALITY. Now everyone can afford full colour even if you need a run of just a few copies.
We turn your printing job around quickly
The printing industry and its clientele seem to have grown accustomed to long turnaround times for supplying quotes, sending out proofs, printing and delivery. We categorically do not accept this mode of operation. If you need a quote from us (that is, is you can’t find what you need on our online product pages) we will usually respond well inside 24 hours. Sometimes it may take a little longer if we need to sub-contract an unusual aspect of your request. Proofs will usually be sent out within 24 hours. Printing will be carried out no later than (and frequently faster than) the option you choose on our product pages. Your job will be dispatched the day it is ready. Try us, you will be pleasantly surprised (maybe completely bowled over) at the level of service you receive (especially if you have been used to dealing with conventional printing organisations).
Personal service — you deal with real people!
KainosPrint.com.au is not a remote and impersonal service provider that utilises an automatic telephone answering system to direct you the appropriate call centre. When you place an order with us, you will be dealing with real people who will be speaking to you on the phone and sending you emails throughout the production of your job. We take great pleasure in offering our customers, many of whom have never had anything printed in the past, a lifetime of experience to help make the process smoother, to avoid silly mistakes, to find ways of avoiding wasting money, to improve the product, to raise issues they might not have thought of, and so on.

We guarantee our work
If your final print job does not match the copy of the proof which you approved, then we will reprint your job from the your original file at no charge. If you prefer, however, we will give you a refund.
If we print something incorrectly and it is our fault, we won’t argue and try to shift the blame. In some cases we will need to get the job back again. In such cases we will email return instructions to you and often arrange the pick up. When we get your job back, we will reprint it at no cost to you from your original file.
Our services are Australia wide
We are a Canberra-based company, but it doesn’t matter where you are in Australia. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Coober Pedy, Darwin, Broken Hill, Mt Isa, Broome, Christmas Island, Warooka or Bundaberg, through KainosPrint.com.au, you can organise your high-quality full colour printing project without leaving your desk. It gives us particular pleasure to offer an easy to use service with keen pricing to customers in rural and remote locations, many of whom have had such a tough time of it recently due to drought.
What’s in a name?
Kainos is the ancient Greek word for ‘new’. Kainos does not mean ‘new’ as in a new pair of socks, or a new book. It DOES mean ‘new’ as in better than the old, replacing the old, heralding a new age. It is used if what is old has become obsolete and should be replaced by what is new. For the owners of KainosPrint, there are many nuances surrounding the use of the word, however the main one is that we are providing our customers with a new and better way of buying print via the medium of a new world class web site. We are also using the new medium of digital printing to produce much of our work, which creates new printing possibilities that were never previously available.
