Our Story

It starts with a love story. A love of print; and a story that began when Bob and Diane
met over the printing presses of Queensland’s only statewide newspaper at the time,
located at Bowen Hills. It was the ‘90s in Brisbane, it was the beginning of Bob and
Diane’s adventure.

The InHouse Print & Design story

With more than 30 years of print industry experience, Bob and Diane decided to continue their story by starting a commercial printing business with a few bubble jet printers, under the family home. To acknowledge their humble beginnings, “InHouse” Print & Design was born. 

Passionate about providing exceptional customer service in a welcoming home environment, each new client was greeted by their late and very much-loved poodle, Caramel, at the door. With an ever-expanding client database, new machinery and staff members, the decision to move to a large commercial building was made.

A lot has changed since Bob and Diane first started the business. They now have Jac the poodle who greets all their print and publishing clients, a large team of printers, editors, and designers, and a factory full of advanced machinery. But what is most important has stayed the same. InHouse Print & Design is still owned by Bob and Diane Karlsson with three generations of family working within the business. InHouse continues to develop long-term relationships with their clients built on trust and reliability. Their aim continues to be to provide a level of customer service and caring that goes above and beyond, all at an affordable price. For some it’s business, for InHouse Print & Design, it’s family.
