Down Town Express Litho are more than a printing company


Experts agree that if there was a time when a business should take its advertising, branding and marketing efforts seriously, it’s when everyone is uncertain and finding the economy tough. That is because consumers never stop buying when times are hard – they may become more selective, but they still buy!

With this in mind, if print is central to your marketing efforts, which it should if you are operating in Africa, then you should talk to Down Town Express Litho, one of the largest printing companies based within the Eastern Cape.

With four franchises in Port Elizabeth – in Central, Newton Park, Circular Drive, and in Uitenhage, Down Town offers the latest in printing trends after investing in new digital printing technology to save their clients on time and cost.

“We know print and we know the best practices, production optimisation and what will save our customer money in the long run,” describes Heidi Scholtz, Down Town Express Litho’s Brand Manager.

Although they are best known for printing anything from a common business card to product packaging, banners, catalogues, flyers, yearbooks to wallpaper and massive outdoor billboards, the company’s professional consultants, with over 35 years of experience, can assist you with a plan to achieve your campaign goals.

“We’ve found that our customers need more from their print supplier. For instance, customers may also want design, mail merge, print storage, corporate ID custodians, distribution or installation services. We can advise on the most cost effective way to achieve your campaign goals,” Scholtz explains.

For added convenience, Down Town Express Litho also has a dedicated design department with creative designers, who will translate your ideas into tangible products that is the envy of your competition.

“With clients checking out different channels, you need to ensure that themes are consistent across everything. That means using the same colours, logos and fonts. If your flyers and business cards look shabby, what will clients think of your business?” she says.

If you are looking to rebrand your business, create marketing adverts, whether it be for digital or print, or just print your business cards and need a little help, Down Town is the perfect place to approach.

They also recently launched their newest division, Down Town Signs & Graphics, situated in 6th Avenue in Walmer, Port Elizabeth.
