Layout and Design
Producing a polished and professional looking magazine, journal, calendar or diary can be achieved with the help of our graphic design team. We can advise on the best design ideas to ensure your organisation’s brand and vision is coherently and consistently presented. Our design team also works efficiently ensuring quick turnaround of design work.

To ensure high print quality at a competitive price, Countrywide Austral (CWA) uses both domestic and international printers. For example, we use Australian printing companies for advanced, fast printing when your publications have short lead times. Generally this means print turnaround is a minimum of 7 days.
On the other hand, for publications with long lead times, we use international printers and CWA conducts annual tenders to selected overseas printers who can deliver a cost-effective yet reliable service to you.
While we’re happy to advise you on the type of printed material suitable for your communications products, you have the flexibility to choose things like weight and thickness of stock; laminate or coating, and type of binding.
Printed publications are efficiently and cost-effectively distributed as Countrywide Austral has a long working relationship with one of the top mail houses in Melbourne who has a reputation of on-time delivery nationwide. Our mail house either uses couriers or Australia Post depending on your product type and quantities.
You may also choose to electronically distribute some publications like newsletters and localized regional editions. If so, we can take care of this for you and this is another way to reduce your printing and distribution costs.
Advertising and Sales
Advertisements can be included in publications and is an excellent addition to editorial as it assists relevant companies to easily reach out to your audience to promote their goods and services. It also helps a publications’ readership to easily access products and services geared to their specific needs.
To that end, Countrywide Austral provides a sophisticated and ethical advertising sales support centre. Our highly experienced sales team will ensure that your publication is regularly supported by advertisers who care about your members, your community organisation or your industry association.
