Supporting businesses and locals in the City of Lake Macquarie with great printing and graphic design options

The city of Lake Macquarie is a sprawling area that rings itself around the beautiful salt water lake at its centre – Lake Macquarie. The need for printing and graphic design service is as crucial here as it is in any other region – but it definitely has its unique printing needs.

No matter where you go, you will find examples of printing and graphic design work everywhere, from billboards to company logos – these services and products underpin so much in our daily lives that it often goes unnoticed. For many, it’s simply there. It’s only when you need it that you realise how far the world of printing and graphic designs extends and influences the things around us.

In Lake Macquarie, the demand for printing services is continues to grow with the region, with the city continuing to be a place that people in larger cities are choosing to relocate to as a coastal lifestyle change. As demand for services increase and businesses keep opening up to meet those needs, they need talented Lake Macquarie printers who can help them realise and communicate their visions to the public. Printing and graphic designers like Jennings Print help our Lake Macquarie business community communicate what they do with personality, professionalism and creativity, and we support schools, charities and individuals get their messages out. 

The salt water lake at the centre of the Lake Macquarie region is the largest of its kind in Australia, and is one of the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere. It connects to the Tasman Sea, and its large size and connection to the sea make it a wonder for marine biodiversity. It has become a natural nursery for all kinds of marine life, and as such provides a rich recreational fishing area as well as delighting scuba divers, snorkelers and spear-fishers.

The Lake Macquarie region has many of its own tourist attractions such as Pulbah Island, which is the largest island in the lake at 1.6km long and is a protected nature reserve. No permanent structures are located on the island, and camping or hunting is not permitted, however picnics and visits are allowed. Many will access the island by boat, but others may use surf skis or kayaks to get there from the mainland. Pulbah Island is pristine, and the clarity of the water surrounding the pebbled beaches is spectacular. You can also explore the bushland itself via natural walking trails.

Most residents and suburbs have settled themselves around the coastlines of the lake to take advantage of the views and access the resources it provides. The City of Lake Macquarie itself is close to surrounding attractions and regions like the Watagan Mountains, the Hunter Valley wineries, numerous walking and cycling trails, the City of Newcastle – the second largest in the state – and Sydney, the largest and Capital City of New South Wales. The Lake Macquarie region hosts a myriad of small markets, events and activities regularly that all add up to a strong sense of local community and intimacy. Those that live in the area are passionately in love and engaged with it in across all facets, seeing little need to venture far from home.

This insular style of living and the uptick in growth happening in this area makes print and graphic design services particularly important. When people change their locations less or their area of travel reduces, they potentially expose themselves to less choice in their day to day life. Businesses in the area need to make use of printing and design services and products to keep locals aware of their offerings, with a particular focus on updating and reinventing advertising to keep residents engaged and communicating effectively when something has changed or a new service or product is introduced. Jennings Print has been looking after clients in the City of Lake Macquarie for 45 years, with a close-by base in Beresfield. We’re local, and we have watched the Lake suburbs grow since 1975 so we know what our clients need and most importantly, understand the context of their needs. We work closely with our clients to make sure that they get far more than what they ask for – we make a point of surpassing expectations not just on the final deliverables, but on service and support as well.
