In 1997, after many years working in the paper industry, Richard Young saw the need for a specialised paper outlet.

Using his near encyclopaedic knowledge of paper and printing, Richard set up Arrow Printing Supplies to help digital printers and design agencies get the best results from their press and printing budget. 

With access to all the paper suppliers, advice is unbiased and considers all available options rather than a single supplier’s range.

Decades on, his expert paper knowledge is leveraged by all kinds of printers across Australia. Often called upon to match discontinued stock, Arrow happily problem-solve for commercial and digital printers.

Most digital print shops and designers haven’t had any formal print production training. Issues around grain direction and grams per square meter are common. We provide the  missing information and solve problems to allow for efficient print production.
