BLESSTON is a focused printer and packaging supplier using state of the art Litho and Digital equipment allowing for fast, flexible, cost effective products and services.
Our focus  is on innovative, eye-catching, International Standard quality products to ensure consistent quality for brands on shelf and in the Corporate environment.
We continuously educate ourselves formally and informally through trade shows, close customer  and supplier relationships and market awareness so as to become more effective and pro-active in service, quality and innovation.
Recognising people skills in the  “art” of printing, BLESSTON and the Group invests annually in formal apprenticeships, on-going formal and informal courses and believes in empowering staff with skills for growth.

BLESSTON  was founded in 1967 at premises in Auckland Park. With strong growth, the Company acquired land in Florida on the West Rand and built a plant specific to their needs and future growth prospects.
The Company continued to be run as a family business until 1 April 2007 when it was bought by Bidvest and became part of the Bidvest Group under the Bidvest Packaging Silo (Bidvest Paperplus); itself a Division of the Print, Packaging and Data cluster within the Bidvest Office and Print Division. The other four Companies within the Packaging silo are Lufil Packaging, Masterpack Gauteng, Masterpack Cape and Sprint Packaging.
Whilst servicing internal Bidvest Companies through the Lithotech sales offices around the country, BLESSTON also services  external Companies  of all sizes and all markets from large Multinationals to smaller SMME businesses.
As part of Bidvest, a JSE listed Company operating on four continents and employing in excess of 145,000 people globally, our roots like Bidvest remain proudly South African.

Products

Lithographic Printing

We have clients across the full range of sectors and have experience in producing every conceivable product for them.
Typical lithographic print projects include brochures, books, reports, newsletters, flyers, corporate folders, greeting cards, stationery sets, business cards and die cut products for retail packaging.

Digital Printing

Digital print has become increasingly popular in recent times. The emergence & rapid growth of the internet and the digital age in general has led us all to expect instant gratification and in print things are no different. As an organisation we have to respond to these instant demands. Whilst litho technology has worked hard to satisfy this appetite it cannot match digital print for its instant just in time solutions.
We have invested in the technology to be able to offer a full on demand digital print service which is ideally suited to short run production of stationery, business cards, posters, flyers, brochures, greetings cards etc.
A huge potential for digital is the ability to produce a single item cost effectively, opening up the opportunity to print full personalised mailings either as a stand alone digital print run or combined with a larger litho production run. If you have a mailing database of clients then you really should be talking to us about how we can target then through true personalised mail shots and literature.
