In the thick of Kāpiti, just off Kāpiti road, navigate toward Manchester Street and you’ll find Precise Print. Precise is one word for it. Experienced, service-minded, and driven by people and relationships are a few more words for what’s going down on Manchester.

For over three decades, 35 years in 2024 to be exact, Sean and Jo Donnelly have navigated every kind of design and print production job there is!

A humble kind of duo, Sean and Jo rarely boast about their own journey, and even when asked about the strengths and lessons of it all, the narrative of family, their love for motorcycles and motocross, and the sentiment that business is all about the people you meet along the way— is what you’re met with. You get an immediate sense of the heart behind this local business, through and through.

As a full-service print and design production enterprise, the expansion of their son’s own business, Graphic Garage, means you can head down Manchester Street to launch your business, brand your fleet of vehicles, or pump out critical documents without leaving the compound. Graphic Garage is their son’s stand-alone business, a stone’s throw away, carving out its name in the design and print production sector in its own right.

Precise Print has transitioned over the years, cutting its teeth in the more traditional art of offset printing, now pushing the boundaries of the ever-evolving digital print industry. As time and services have evolved, the business remains grounded in that sense of family, with long-serving employees who become just as much of the fabric—some for almost three decades themselves.

As the day draws to a close, a shared nod signals that it’s time to switch the gears, switch off the machines, and hit the road for a ride. It’s a way of life it seems, and a pretty good one by the looks. Fuelling craftsmanship and results, just as much as they fuel the next open-road jaunt.
