About Us

Established in 1989, Salty Print was originally a church based, employment creation, project run by the Methodist Church. Salty Print was bought by Steve and Colleen Bardwell in December 2007, bringing to Salty Print a 100 year family heritage of quality printing, as well as entrepreneurial skills. With Stephen and Irene joining the Company in 2010, it brings four generations of the family into the trade.


Whilst still being closely involved with the Methodist Church through the Methodist Publishing House, Salty Print has diversified into new technologies and markets to usher in a new era of excellence. In particular, Salty Print is excited to lead the market in “Web To Print” e-commerce for the printing industry, with world class Sempiternity e-Print Software. We are dedicated to providing the simplest and most user friendly customer experience. Quality, timeliness and convenience are our watch words.


In addition to our expedited print offerings, Salty Print is pleased to be able to offer traditional litho printing and print finishing services. With the acquisition of Prowrap in 2011, Salty Print also offers a wide range of print finishing and mailing services. 


We have strong ties to the NGO community and are proud to be the printer of choice for a number of Church based organisations and NGO companies that give back to our local community. 


Salty Print is a family owned and run business. We look forward to welcoming you to the family. We are here to help so please feel free to contact us by any of the means provided on our home page, as well as under contact us.


Matthew 5 : 13 - 16 (New Living Translation)  You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavour, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.


“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lamp stand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.


Our logo represents God’s light, and His Word, shining into the world. We pray that He will allow us to be part of that work.


Our corporate name is Archelogos cc – taking our inspiration from John 1: 1. "Arche – from of old /  in the beginning” and also “Logos – The Word.”  In the beginning was the Word.
