Brad is a highly-skilled offset print specialist, who has been employed at Southport Printing Co. for over 15 years. After making the move from Sydney to the Gold Coast in 2006, Brad took his position at Southport Printing Co. and has been happy in the role ever since. Brad operates a Speed Master 52, two colour machine. In his role, Brad specifically mixes inks to create the desired PMS colour for every print job that comes into his area of the factory. This machine uses metal plates, which feature inked images that are transferred (or “offset”) from the plates to rubber blankets, then to the paper. Once printed, the jobs that Brad produces are moved to the finishing area to be finished using processes such as trimming, perforating, die cutting, celloglazing and book binding. In Brad’s final years of high school, he worked part time at a local butchery in his home suburb in NSW. Although Brad enjoyed the pocket money, this was not the trade for him. He signed up to a print machinery trade, which he completed over the next 4 years and has now been a printer for 29 years.
