COVID-19 Coronavirus Outbreak

First and foremost, we would like to wish all Australians the best of luck in the coming months, and we hope that you and your families remain safe and well.

We would also like to update you on the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation from the Book Printing Companies perspective, as it can affect our customers, suppliers and staff in various ways. The Book Printing Company is a family owned business, and along with many other family owned businesses throughout Australia, we are concerned about the possible implications, and the effect that the COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak will have on our families, friends and employees from both a health and economic perspective. Because of this we have consulted with our fellow workers and suppliers and we have made the following decisions so that we can best support other Australian owned businesses during these difficult times.

We have prioritised the health and safety of our employees by implementing preventative measures to protect their well-being. This in turn, will help to minimise business disruption and provide our customers with a continuity of service. All staff who can work from home, will be working from home effective immediately. Our offices will be closed to the public to ensure that exposure to the COVID-19 Coronavirus is almost eliminated. However, normal print production will be guaranteed.

In regards to suppliers, we have determined that for us to assist other Australian owned businesses, we will be buying from fully owned Australian businesses in the first instance where possible. If you are not currently a supplier and you fit within this scope, please email us at
