FESPA Australia News & Events


We have all been touched in different ways by the tragic events of this summer.

The team of FESPA Australia has received many kind notes of support from our colleagues in the international FESPA community who have all seen the events on the news in their own countries. As one of a number of Associations servicing our industry, we have been asking ourselves how best we leverage our community to help those affects by the fires and their aftermath. As printers and signmakers there are of course others we can help supporting our fellow members and businesses affected. 

We received an email from Peter Harper, CEO of Visual Connections, which included a link of resources which is a good summary we can all share.

The link is Bushfire Support

Feel free to contact us directly if you have any suggestions you may wish us to share or post your thoughts directly via our Facebook page.

We regularly hold industry functions, tradeshows, conferences and plant tours that are a great opportunity to meet your peers, expand professional contacts and establish links and referral relationships with fellow printers.

How better to WOW prospective customers than to welcome them into your business where your FESPA Award is displayed alongside your best work? How better to reassure them of your technical skill than showing off an award that has been judged by senior and influential figures in the  industry, experts in your field and most importantly, your customers.

SGIAA sadly farewells a print icon, industry pioneer and beloved friend, Harry Magee.

Harry was a key figure in the Victorian branch of SPAA (Screen Printing Association of Australia) in the days before it became the SGIAA. He was an eager supporter of new comers to the industry, a pioneer of modern screen stretching techniques in Australia and a genuine man.

Harry passed away on Oct 21, 2014, aged 92. Loved husband of Therese Charlotte (Biddy). Loving father of Penny, Greg, Melody and Glenn.

In tribute to his passing, former SGIAA President, Trevor Cunningham, and current SGIAA Supplier Representative, Bill Porteous, both personal friends of Harry's, have each written of their memories of Harry.
