Blue Island Press are publishers, printers and distributors of the finest range of Greeting Cards and Calendars currently produced in Australia. We own the printing presses so we can control the quality of the output; this allows us to print on the finest art papers available, in this regard the only funds that go offshore are for paper and artists commissions.
The privilege we have is to print local artists and archived artists from the Museums and Galleries around the country. For the first time artists can submit their work for publication with the potential of being published in Australia and by our sister company in the UK plus our distribution arm in New Zealand.
All our products for Australia and New Zealand are printed in Australia. If you feel you have art that may work with us please Click Here to go to the Artist Submissions page.
Most leading bookshops and galleries stock our products ask for them by name.
We are also proud to support the Indigenous Literary Foundation.
The Indigenous Literacy Foundation origins go back to 2004 when former teacher Suzy Wilson the owner of River Bend Books in Bulimba, Brisbane launched the River Bend Readers Challenge to raise money to boost literacy levels, then in 2011 it became the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF), a national not-for-profit charity focused on improving literacy levels in very remote Aboriginal and Torres Straight Island communities.
It is an honour for Blue Island Press to contribute a portion of our profits from the sale of Christmas cards and Bookmark Cards from Australian artists.
