Meet our Team
Our wonderful staff at created2print are a dedicated bunch. They will bend over backwards to make sure you’re looked after! They are also highly experienced, so can advise you on your business needs!
Catrina knows the in’s, out’s and in-betweens of the business – really there’s nothing she doesn’t know… in fact, she’d probably be able to tell you what each of us had for breakfast!
The reason why Catrina knows the business so well is because as of the 22nd July 2020, she’s been with us for 35 years! Wowsers, that’s a long time! But it’s very clear Catrina loves working here and I’m sure we can all agree she is a loyal and hardworking staff member.
Outside of work Catrina loves to keep fit by walking daily and bending and stretching her way through Pilates! She also loves catching up with friends and can often be seen on the weekends hanging out with a coffee in hand and a friend by her side.
Catrina is also a big family girl (she works with her sisters, so she must really, really like them!). She has two daughters whom she is extremely proud of and makes sure their happiness is her first priority (oh, and her husband, too!).
Our Catrina is a selfless and lovely person and without her we would be lost… who would we direct all of our silly questions to?
Thank you for all of your hard work over the years, Catrina, and congratulations on 35 years (We think this deserves a cake celebration!!).
Greg is our General Manager and is the main man looking over all of the printing jobs. From organising the stock, managing prepress and all of the scheduling, Greg is the go-to to get our jobs through the system. And if there are any printing queries, Greg is the one to see. So he’s a pretty busy man! But we know he loves it – he hit a massive 45 years in the industry this year!
45 years in the printing industry is a mammoth effort! There has been so many industry changes that Greg has adapted to over his time, and he’s also had the opportunity to work with many different industries around Adelaide. He’s also seen the amalgamation of business’ to form what is created2print today, which he has happily taken in his stride and worked with many different people.
When Greg isn’t running around following up jobs, you can find him belting out some beats on his drums. You may have even seen him around the Adelaide pub scene with his band, Jump’n’Jive, rocking out 50’s and 60’s rock’n’roll tunes!
Greg also loves spending time with his two grand-daughters and can often be heard telling stories about all the cute things they do when they are hanging out with Poppy.
So Greg has been around the traps for a while, but he wouldn’t have it any other way (actually, the one thing he would change is Winter – as we all know how much Greg loves the cold!).
Congratulations on such a big milestone, Greg!
Peter is our illustrious leader, director, the main man or however you want to put it. Basically, he’s the boss.
Peter wasn’t always in the printing game – can you believe he was a scientist back in the day? Specialising in pathology, he decided to give up the microscopes for ink & paper and hasn’t looked back since
With no prior printing knowledge, he brought together 4 successful printing companies (Rapiddoc, Cruickshank, KB Print & Printak) to form created2print, and carries on the tradition of high quality printing and customer service. More recently Peter merged the CopyCat business into the entity and gained the valuable services of Jan and Leigh Causby
On the weekends, you can normally find Peter strolling around the golf course, trying to improve his handicap. We can confirm this rarely happens. He is also a mad Port Adelaide supporter, and can often be heard dissecting the game on a Monday morning.
And if running his own business and Port’s poor form isn’t stress enough, Peter also likes to dabble in building houses with his son, recently finishing off a beautiful architecturally designed home.
Overall, we think he’s a pretty good boss. He likes a joke and a laugh…unless they are his jokes – then no one but him is laughing. But we still like him, anyway.
Katherine wears many hats in the created2print office. She is one of our talented graphic designers, maintains our platemaking facilities AND leads our Environment and Quality Assurance endeavours.
She is very passionate about the environment and reducing our carbon footprint, and often reminds us to switch off the lights when we leave a room. She loves it so much, that aside from making sure we are following sustainable practices, she also ensures her own home is environmentally sound. She has a 12.4KW solar system on her home, and about to stack on another 6.6KW! She also teaches her kids what they need to do to help the environment.
Katherine has been in the company for 30 years (full-time for 24), starting in the bindery department when she was knee-high to a grasshopper. Well, maybe not that young – but she was pretty young! Through her teenage years, she continued to work in bindery and helped the family business with admin. Eventually she moved onto Graphic Design where she found her niche and settled there. So, it’s safe to say she has print in her blood! She loves working on creative jobs and has the knowledge to really give you the best print outcome for your project.
Out of work (when she’s not teaching the family about all things environmental) she’s a bit of a gamer and is often battling it out against her fiancé. Who wins? Well, we don’t want to cause any arguments….
She has 2 kids whom she adores and loves spending time with them, driving to the hills and discovering parks and walking trails (and teaching them all things environmental). And if she’s not exploring, she’s at home spending hours building Star Wars Lego… she’s a mad fan and even has a tattoo on her arm of a TIE fighter (Star Wars fans rejoice).
Katherine is really a part of the furniture, but she is very much a vital part in getting things done around the factory.
Rita is our wonderful Business Development Executive. She must really like working here, as she has been here for 17 years! Being in the industry for such a long time, Rita really knows her print and can advise her clients on what kind of printing would suit their business needs. She’s also really thorough, and prides herself on following the job from the start, right until you have the end product in your hands (and she’s usually there smiling at you as she hands it over!). In fact, she’s barely in the office, as she’s always out and about seeing her clients! Rita loves looking after her customers and they love working with her, too…that smile is infectious!
Aside from all the print and work, Rita loves, loves, loves her fur baby, Rocky! We know this because she can’t stop talking about him. Every. Single. Day. (But he is loveable!). Rita also loves keeping fit. She’s one of these crazy people that actually gets up BEFORE work to exercise (I mean, seriously, have you not heard of a bed?!). But we also know she loves her chocolate (we know about your secret stash in your drawer, Rita!), and she will shamelessly use them to bribe co-workers into pushing her jobs through quicker! See we told you she’d look after you! What a gal!
Rosa is the queen of the factory! She is not only our finishing & bindery superstar she organises all of the deliveries AND the stationery orders! You’ll find her in the factory sticking, cutting, wrapping or ordering (often with her crown on!).
Rosa is one of those people who can just get things done. She will do anything for anyone and will drop everything to put others first! She will go to EVERY birthday, wedding, christening, funeral, her sister’s dog’s birthday (well, maybe not that one) but she really is the type of friend you need!
We all look forward to birthdays at created2print because Rosa is also the queen of baking and makes delicious cupcakes for everyone (I mean, seriously, is there anything she can’t do?). But they aren’t just ordinary cupcakes, they are full-on decorated with Freddo Frogs or Kit Kats or whatever she wants to pop on top! She really spoils us (and is making us fat!).
She is also a massive John Farnham fan, as you can see from the picture… we’ve often heard her singing “A Touch of Paradise” at work – so we figure she must really love him & us!
Rosa such a star and we would all be lost without her!
Paul is one of our expert guillotine operators, cutting your artwork to size like a boss! He has been with created2print for 7 years now, and so has plenty of experience making sure everything is trimmed to perfection. This machine is dangerous, so it takes a precise individual to operate it, but Paul always has it under control… and he still has all of his fingers to prove it!
He must really like cutting things, as in his spare time, Paul operates a lawn mowing business, Green Finger Lawns (hit him up if you need your lawn mowed to perfection!) Paul is also known to have a bunch of bananas at his workstation every day, (which have usually disappeared by lunchtime) and he has lot of energy to burn…so aside from walking up and down lawns, Paul is also a BLACK BELT in Karate! It also runs in the family, as his 13-year old daughter is also a black belt… I wouldn’t want to meet that family down a dark alley at night! Ka-pow!
A green thumb, banana loving, karate expert, Paul is you man if you need something cut with precision! And he always does it with a smile!
Eldyne (aka Deano) is part of the furniture at created2print, being here for 30 years! Wowsers! She has many feathers to her cap, including finishing, binding and laminating, but she is also a superstar digital print operator. If you’ve ever printed something digitally with us, chances are Eldyne was the master behind the operation.
When Eldyne isn’t printing, folding or gluing, you’ll find her getting her Shakira on at belly dancing classes! We’re still yet to see her shimmy her way around the factory, but we’re sure she dances like no one is watching… when no one is actually watching. Hey Eldyne, how about a class in the factory one day? Who’s in?
She’s also a beer lover and loves to snuggle into Winter with a home-brewed stout. We’re still all waiting for our samples, but we’re assured that its pretty good! (Still waiting, though!).
Aside from shaking hips and brewing beer (sometimes together), Eldyne also partakes in “The Bloody Long Walk” each year.🚶♀️ 35kms of walking from Carrick Hill to Glenelg in aid of the Mito Foundation (people affected by mitochondrial disease). What an absolute superstar!
Always bright, Eldyne is a true treasure of created2print!
During his 38 years in the printing industry – Greg has operated all sorts of machines, including printers, die cutting and of course, the guillotine. He also helps to sort out the stock in the factory… is there anything he can’t do?
In his spare time, Greg likes to keep fit through swimming and boxing (look out!) and he can often be seen doing looong walks with his wife, Bec (and sometimes a sneaky brunch in between!).
Greg is also a mad Sturt supporter… and we mean MAD (don’t hold it against him). Quiz him on anything to do with the Double Blues and we guarantee he will know the answers! However, we can’t guarantee that he won’t talk to you for hours about his beloved team!
All in all – Greg knows his stuff and we are very lucky to have him!
Cindy is the newest member of created2print and brings with her a plethora of experience in the graphic design and marketing industry for both print & digital. And the best thing about that, is that she can set up and maintain style guides that keep your branding consistent throughout your marketing collateral. A former studio manager, Cindy can fill you with confidence that your jobs will be scheduled, designed and finished with a high level of quality and professionalism in all of your design jobs!
But she’s not all about deadlines and creating! A keen craft beer enthusiast and traveller, Cindy can often be found critiquing hops and malts in breweries all around the world. To counteract all that beer, she is also “sort-of” a triathlete (‘cause you know, running alone is not enough). Swimming, cycling and running her way around Adelaide keeps her fit and well, sane!
He’s been working in the printing industry for 2.5 years, but it’s a career he fell into and never pictured himself as a printer… in fact, he actually studied IT! But it was while he was dabbling in a bit of design freelancing that he was asked to work for a printer… and the rest, as they say, is history.
Nick has only been with created2print for 6 months, but he’s slotted into the team perfectly and it’s very obvious he really knows his stuff… and it’s very clear to everyone he works with that he truly loves what he does!
Outside of work, he loves to tinker with cars. He once owned a Toyota MR2 which he completely pulled apart to fix a problem, and then put it all back together again! If he’s not pulling cars apart, he’s detailing them with the same attention to detail he uses in his work at created2print!
He also does a bit of photography in his spare time and also spends time with his lovely girlfriend when she is home from her FIFO duties.
Nick is a likeable lad and the baby of the company… and he keeps us all on our toes! So, next time you get anything digitally printed, you’ll know the face behind the work!
