Last week's survey

In the last week's survey , we asked - Do you think (overseas) printers operating in Australia with low, low pricing are legitimate players or are they not part of the free enterprise system?


An emotive issue for many of our readers and we expected emotional responses - we certainly received plenty.


Not part of the free enterprise system    52%

Legitimate player   29%
Not sure  19%  


  •  No I do not see them as legitamate players in the Australian Market. They undercut every local sign company and every local distributor to the point where local sign companies cannot make any profit from display items. Bodies such as VISA and its affiliates should not allow them to advertise in their E-News Letters. The Banner Shop have single handedly destroyed the Roll-up Banner market for all other sign companies. These overseas printers flood the market using every publication as sell direct to clients all the time. How can independant sign companies survive?
  • At the moment the people I speak to that are charging a premium (getting what the job is actually worth to get a profit) are mostly flat out and have been for a while now - the people trying to compete against the price gougers are mostly quiet with low profit jobs - there has to be something in this -
    I think the "low, low price" operators do have a place in the market - to look after the customer on a small budget. The budget buyer is the first one to hold onto his money when times get tough and when he does spend his money they will always go for the cheapest price - let them look after the low profit / tyre kickers and go chase some clients that can see the value in dealing with someone with years of industry experience and use good quality, long lasting substrates that will give the end user the best value for their dollar - when you get them, service the hell out of them and they will come back - maybe not every time but they will when the cheap supplier lets them down.
  • As you know I hate em but have no choice. Govt must hate us or is in thier pocket. Weve seen the shoe,clothing,computer, automotive...ALL manufacturing industries demise as they are DUMPING cheap crap. When they have beaten us and we no longer have a manufacturing industry , thats when the prices go up..These people dont have workplace safety ,defined wages OR freedom of speech, certainly NO holidays NO 8 hour day fed a grain of rice a week and sleep under the workbench. We cannot compete with Communists who may shoot thier staff if they do not perform. All we can do is offer quality and service and know-how. Personally I cant understand why anyone would use them, as when a mistake is made with inferior product and knowledge base they will not give a refund. You must pay upfront so you loose your money. I tell all I meet not to use them as you will do your dough.... You have to be a rich man to buy cheap, cheep, as you pay more trying to rectify the problem because you tried to save a buck. Quality & service will never beat cheep cheep.
  • The Bannershops of the world traget the trade and enable the trade to purchase relatively low cost print so that it can be onsold to the consumers in such a way that the tradie makes a good mark up, what's wrong with that. I have used them and I'm smiling, so are my customers. I don't try and compete with them, I have my own niche markets 
  • No come back No customer service no Australian standards to stick to. No Quality, Jo public thinks signs are all the same and we are ripping them off.
  • Unfortunately our industry is the same as every other industry within this country. Because of the internet and free trade we are impacted by the cheap overseas players - so deal with it!
  • I think its become more global, but personally i will always use local companies for outsourcing (australian owned) as its putting it back into our economy and I'd like to think others would do the same to not only help their own future, but try to hold back to continuing devaluation of our industry. Too many people think of profit or trying to secure business by using inferior products and selling it cheaply.
  • It's a free world when it comes to trade and we are subject to our government's policies so i dont see any problem with it. It may well damage the local industry but why should we be treated any differently to any other industry in Australia.
  • Simple economics suggest they are not an equal player in our marketplace. Our free enterprise approach has left us open to outside attack from these foreign players. Lower wages, no company tax, etc. etc. Add to this the misleading mass advertising campaigns they continually run that create an inaccurate view of our industry from the clients. E.G. $80 Banner & Stand within 24 hours. No artwork costs etc. What rubbish, many clients of mine have made the mistake of believing their flyers at their own peril and added cost.
  • Such is the global economy I guess, but our sign industry was serious they would adopt a 'produced in Austraia' campaign or something. But that will never happen without an effective association and loyal membership.
  • It is a reality that we have to accept that it is happening and here to stay. We can not compete. I am sure this is happening in other manufacturing industries also... How sad it is that we are out of the market because of this. Years of Skill means nothing people looking for that cheap job...Remember 'ŻOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!'.....
  • I wonder about the real motives of some of the offshore print suppliers. Recently we lost a $90,000 digital print and supply quote to a Chinese competitor. Nothing unusual in that, except that they quoted $8,000 landed in NSW, or less than 10% of our price. Our direct material costs before labour/ink/machine costs/overhead/profit etc on this quote were $24,000. In any other industry this would be seen as "Dumping" and it is illegal.

  • Anyone that enters into any business is really a free player to charge whatever pricing they see is relevant and that is within the law. The Chinese mentality is so very different to the Western ways hence so many low prices as they do not have the laws and regulations and taxes in China that we have to deal with here. The printers and hardware suppliers would not have survived here in Australia if they were not supported by signwriters and companies that just want to put out crap and because of this they have grown in numbers and the industry has to wear it.
  • Whether we like it or not, and unless legislation changes, imports from overseas countries like China and even India will play a much bigger roll. I have lost work because customers themselves are importing jobs are prices I could never match, and if done right they are getting a very high quality, and this only seems to be increasing. In our business we also do general printing and some web stuff. Its the same issue for those areas too, and the only way we will survive is to focus on the areas we do best, doesn't compete directly with cheap imports (eg fast turn arounds, custom work) and gives us the best returns. I think the next few years will be a rough ride for many print and signage companies.
