“Having Elephant Group look after all our print requirements allow us to focus on our core business, publishing. They obtain the best pricing, look after quality control, liaise with multiple suppliers on our behalf and take the hassle out of everything.

Best of all they understand their clients and look after them 100 per cent. I highly recommend Elephant Group for any and all print requirements.”

“As the CEO of MMP, I am responsible for delivering our suite of high end clients a premium environment to showcase their brands. The likes of Dior, Cartier, Mercedes Benz and Trenery demand absolute excellence and for the first time in their history in Australia they are supporting a weekly, free suburban publication with their global artwork. Elephant Group have consistently delivered a superior product with attention to detail previously not seen in our category. The continued custom of these clients is testament to the quality of the finished product and to the expertise and proactivity of the Elephant team ensuring we always have happy clients.” 

Trent Casson – Managing Director
Domain Group Victoria

 

“When The Weekly Review started, it was my responsibility to deliver a quality glossy lifestyle magazine. We had specific requirements in print production when it came to stock, price, time frame, and most of all, quality. The assistance we received from Elephant Group in terms of pre-press and press guidance was invaluable, and enabled us to achieve our ambitious targets within 5 weeks. Not only did we achieve this, we also set a new standard of quality print reproduction amongst the competitors in our field. To this day the same ethos has continued, when The Age Domain was taken from newsprint to gloss, Elephant group delivered on all fronts again …”
