After a successful Pacprint in 2022, CMYKhub will showcase its online subscription, graphic design & prepress platform Design Desk at Visual Impact Expo at the Sydney Showground in May.
Attendees are encouraged to pre-book a demo or visit Stand F14 to learn how some printers are saving up to $50,000 a year on graphic design and prepress expenses.
“Australia’s largest trade printer CMYKhub has heard the calls from their 4000 strong trade partners for greater support in filling the gap between client brief and putting ink on paper,” says a press release.
“Design Desk was launched in 2020, providing the print industry with access to a whole team of graphic designers and prepress operators at the click of a button. Design Desk has also provided many businesses including designers and creative agencies the ability to scale quickly at a very low cost. It’s simply the most profitable way to sell design as a service.
“The multi-level monthly subscription web platform connects the Australian Visual Media industry to CMYKhub’s team of qualified designers. Users simply select from the list of services, whether it be adding bleed to existing artwork or creating a printed product from scratch. Collaboration with the design team is easy via the Design Desk workflow. Anyone can instantly become a Creative Director to manage their artwork without any formal training.”
CMYKhub’s national communications manager Glen Francis says Design Desk was particularly useful to businesses when the pandemic struck down much of Australia’s workforce.
“Design Desk never calls in sick and never goes on holidays, it is a dependable resource. Many of our early subscribers have also utilised the service to be that extra half a staff member they need when they get busy or their designer needs to concentrate on a complex job”.
- 4 Subscription levels starting at $239+GST per month
- 5 days a week, 11 hours a day of qualified designers working on your artwork

As a trade printer, CMYKhub manufactures for other printers, graphic designers, signwriters, marketing and advertising agencies. The company operates out of five production hubs based in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns and Perth. Every factory is equipped with Indigo digital presses, roll to roll and flatbed wide format machines along with A1 offset presses in capital cities. The large national manufacturing footprint provides speed to market for their trade partners.
“Visual Impact also provides CMYKhub with the opportunity to share samples from its brand new roll label department launching around the same time as the expo,” Francis adds. “Drop by to discuss trade label printing opportunities with the team.”
