About Us

Our artisanal approach to our craft betrays the size of our business as a commercial printer with a team of 50+ staff, but our hunger to produce exceptional results does not.

Fast Proof Press specialise in high-quality, bespoke printing projects designed to push the boundaries of print and drive the industry forward. FPP boasts the largest offset printer in Queensland housed alongside our other state of the art printing presses – digital and web – in our purpose built 1200 square-metre Gold Coast facility. Our carefully selected binding, cutting and folding machines are complimented by a highly skilled team offering over 100 years of combined experience in the industry.
Our fundamental principles of quality, craftsmanship, time-management and sustainability are ingrained in the business operations and lead us to truly care about the outcome of every project we undertake with customers of any size.
