The products Southern Colour Print produces for the non-security market include publications, flyers, leaflets, brochures, posters, business cards and office stationery. Customers in this segment are mainly domestic clients from local and national government, education institutions, tourism and other commercial operations.
The security market has a focus on postage stamps, immigration visas, examination papers, diplomas and certificates. We use a range of printing techniques that includes hot foiling, embossing, thermography and specialty security inks to create unique and secure products.
