We take the time to learn about you and your business, so our design reflects the heart and soul of what you do.

With over 20 years of industry experience, we deliver high-quality design and printing services. Leave your project with us and check it off your list!

We partner with quality other local small businesses to help you with signage, offset printing, copywriting and web design to make building and marketing your business easy and effective.

Happy Clients


I don’t easily give references, but it is with pleasure that I provide this testimonial for Jo Pollard at Samford Design and Print, a business she has successfully reimagined since acquiring it over the past couple of years. Jo and her team are highly professional in seamlessly delivering the traditional range of print shop products and services.

Yet I would have to say their true point of difference lies in their stunning and rapidly growing document design business. Jo and the team have amassed decades of deep corporate marketing experience.

Importantly they know and understand the language and nuances of business creativity. Whether it’s a business card, a new logo, eye-catching marketing materials, posters and signs, or simply their good creative advice and counsel you are looking for, I implore you to look no further than Samford Design and Print.

A former senior executive in the banking sector, I am currently completing a major book on small business leadership to be released later this year. My current base is 1,100 kilometres south of Brisbane, and yet I would not have considered even for a moment going to someone closer to home. Nor do I need to!

Jo and her team have produced all of the graphics for my book, including over 20 outstanding presentation slides. We communicate by phone. We swap documents via email. Yet they have consistently demonstrated the capacity to get quickly inside my head, to get to the nub of what I am thinking and writing about (yes, I sometimes suspect they are mind readers also!) and to transform my very rough drawings into what I could only describe as works of art!

Their highly creative and knowledgeable input has been outstanding from my perspective. I will most definitely also engage them to help me produce a series of eye-catching slide shows and posters when I go on my roadshow later in the year to promote my book. 

The best compliment I can give them is that based on my experience to date, I wouldn’t think of using anyone else.
