With the technological age continuing to shape what is possible, printing is an industry of opportunity. Once a traditional field, printing is now dynamic and current; producing trained and skilled workers.  

The commercial print trade currently represents one of Australia's largest industries. From conventional forms and now modern applications such as ink-jet technologies, large format printing, digital packaging applications and 3-D printing, the printed form remains relevant in a digital world.

As a print machinist, you will have the chance to work alongside a range of new and innovative communication systems, which provide a broad range of skillsets.

Holmesglen understands to make the confident leap from study to work the proper education is first required. Whether you desire to work with digital printing and/or flexographic and lithographic forms, a printing course will provide the perfect introduction.
