Creffield Digital Print!

This year we welcome on board Creffield Digital Print as a major sponsor for Melbourne Frocktails.   They are generously supporting us in getting a professional photographer for the event, so that we can capture the evening, and get the rare opportunity to have our outfits professionally photographed.

Thank you Creffield!

Creffield offer high-quality printing, with dedicated expert customer service.  Anything from business cards, to canvas printing,  flyers and scanning.. and of course large format printing.   They offer a fast, cost effective service.   Shelley (@lightningmcstitch) only discovered Creffield last year – “These guys are lifesavers!  When a pattern comes in US 36″ wide format they print it.  Not scaled to fit, and always cheap and fast”.

Creffield have shops in West Melbourne, South Melbourne and Geelong.   So, next time you download a pdf pattern, give Creffield a call, and get them to print it for you, to save your hours of sticking together hundreds of A4 pages!!
