Printing companies Cape Town 2021

Printing companies in Cape Town form a decent part of the over 1,500 printing companies in South Africa which collectively employ well over 50,000 people. These companies range in size from large companies like Novus Holdings and CTP Print which prints books, diaries, magazines, and a range of other commercial products including catalogues, magazine inserts, and annual reports.

Over 1,000 printing companies are small to medium-sized businesses (SMME’s) that generally specialise in a particular type of printed product such as office stationery, brochures, packaging, corporate gifts, banners, and flags. Some specialise in short runs and others in long runs. Some only offer litho printing services, others only digital printing services, and some a combination of the two.
