Bluechilli Design & Print

About Us

We are Bluechilli, a multidisciplinary team of designers and printmakers with a passion for solving problems and crafting beautiful solutions that deliver results.

From the moment we receive your brief, to the second we place the final full stop on your print order we have just one objective - to satisfy your requirements. Absolutely. And all in the fast, friendly – and above all creative – fashion that has become Bluechilli’s trademark.

It’s what we do. Going the extra mile to delight a client is the norm. We expect nothing less from ourselves.

It’s this ethos - woven into the fabric of the business and shared by our substantial complement of talented designers and printers - that enables us to produce impeccable products for you, time after time.
One of our strengths is that we have all this creativity and skill under one roof. Problems are resolved on the spot. Decisions are made immediately. Investment in the best equipment and latest technologies make complex processes simple and cost-effective.

We understand that talented people will produce great work. They’ll do even greater things as part of an exceptional team so we invest in the best and give them the opportunity to shine; a mandate to push boundaries and to create work that people point to and say “I want that.”

This innovative, creative approach ensures an inbuilt quality that permits our work to speak for itself.
