We are a strong family business, owned and operated by the Lane family brothers, and proudly Australian.

The Lane journey in print communications began in 1971 with the purchase of a small printing company, DG & B Paul, and the establishment of Lane Bros. Printers. This was the beginning of a consistent culture of continual improvement, innovation and steady growth.

Employing over 70 staff nationally, our head office and main production facilities operate out of South Australia, with our highly experienced sales team managing key accounts across the country.

From our modest beginnings in 1971, we have remained at the forefront of technology, providing our customers with effective visual communications, over both print and digital channels. During our founding years, we acquired one of the largest commercial printing businesses in South Australia. Shortly after, we purchased the major digital printing and mailing company in the Australian Capital Territory. We are now one of the most substantial privately-owned printing, mailing and digital communications companies in Australia.

Our core objectives are simple: by providing consistent quality and innovation in visual communications, we aim to be an integral influence in the prosperity, positive promotion and professional presentation of our customers.

Our story so far is just the beginning.
