IPMG handles $3m election guide job

An AEC spokesperson told ProPrint that the 8-page booklet, which is slightly smaller than A4 size, is “finalised, printed, plastic wrapped and delivered to all Australian households once the federal election has been called so that election dates can be included in the document”. 

“It is delivered to households as soon as possible during the election period and before election day,” the AEC said.

IPMG ACT manager Brad Jones told ProPrint said that job was printed, plastic wrapped and distributed nationwide within 14 days. He said that it was this ability to produce a quick turnaround that helped the industry giant win the work.

“The capacity to produce the work in an extremely short time frame was a key issue, as was stock availability,” he said.

The company carried out a print run of 9.5 million for the guide at its Offset Alpine facility in Sydney.

The AEC said this volume was larger than in previous elections “commensurate with the increased number of households”.

The guide provides information on how to cast a formal vote at the upcoming federal election. 

Earlier this year, IPMG picked up a $400,000 tender from the Australian Bureau of Statistics for the printing of Census material.
