Pro print aus todayWhirlwind for W3PAndrew Cester, CEO of Whirlwind Print, a major trade printer located at Knoxfield in Melbourne, is a print ecommerce visionary. He sees flexibility and speed as the keys to the future of commercial printing nd predicts that MIS, equipped with cloud capability and web-to-print, will become the preferred model, as print buyers will be able to complete the majority of a design brief from their tablets, from where it can be fed into a remotely located art department, prepress and onto the presses.These days, MIS is a concept that reaches far beyond simple order taking, even if that has long ago migrated online. The power of the web carries far more potential for print transactions than that.Nineteen-year-old Whirlwind Print began as a graphic design agency and its heart has always been in this phase of the printing process, reflects Cester. So it was only natural that it would one day invest itself fully in design-rich web-to-print, a concept that is ingeniously being marketed as W3P, to differentiate it from W2P, which omitted design templates from the web equation.Whirlwind's W3P offerings, through exclusive Australian rights to UK design company Grafenia, were announced by Whirlwind to industry acclaim last year. There is w3client, which enables print buyers and ad agencies to create customer-specific, editable templates from Adobe InDesign in as little as ten minutes, and have them ready as orders, complete with print-ready PDFs. And there is w3shop, aimed at SMEs and micro-businesses, which can order online using a library of over 80,000 design templates and 25 million photos from Grafenia's Fotolia image collection.Cester tells ProPrint that since Whirlwind launched its W3P services, more than 100 Australian PSOs have signed up and he forecasts further rapid growth. Some printers have signed up for the w3client MIS alone, which enables integration with various financial software, such as Xero, and can generate invoicing, or be interfaced with internal financial systems.However, most of Whirlwind's printer clients have chosen the full online print management solution, including in their package w3shop, which can be transparently integrated as a tab in their websites. For example, Design To Print Solutions in Somerville on Victoria's Mornington Peninsula, a Whirlwind client, has transformed its website from a relatively static repository of basic company information into a dynamic, content-rich ecommerce platform."The printers taking w3shop are either developing specialist niches in terms of their products and services, or else they want to become the most successful printer in their locality," says Cester. "Right now, less than 30 per cent of printers in Australia have a true transactional website but we believe that will change quickly."Ecommerce relationships with w3client and w3shop users around Australia – integrated into Whirlwind's production hub – have started to pay dividends for Whirlwind, bringing significant amounts of work to its Knoxfield site, keeping things busy on its Komori Lithrones, and increasingly also on its Xerox iGen and HP Indigo. Cester reflects: "We're adding value to the design, print and procurement process and that's the way of the future."
A vote of confidence then from SDV they must have better access to the company than us PIs.
Broadly in line means slightly below. Two new formats are starting to progress. As per Stockopedia comment though it's not clear how profitable these are. I would like to invest in this, but resisting the temptation until there are signs that revenue has flatlined.
Price now sinking again. Part due to ex div but this looks destined to trade in the range of 14p to 24p for the forseeable future. Mine have been tucked away since the initial flotation and I have recovered more than the cost in dividends. Will continue to hold as long as they can afford a decent dividend.
The increase was at the interim stage.
Agreed, but outlook is still very tough. Still watching but too early to jump in. They are running uphill. Management are excellent, but technological obsolescence is a tough battle to fight.
Well done to management an excellent result and the 1.5p dividend who could ask for more.
W3P now in 12 countries.UK, Ireland, France, Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Germany, Poland, Croatia, U.S., Australia, New Zealand,Looking forward to Monday.
the story of the company hxxp://www.printweek.com/print-week/interview/1151458/-my-aim-is-always-to-find-the-next-scalable-business
Yes, an interesting article. Grafenia are still on my watch list. I want better evidence of revenue growth before I re-enter here. Technological obsolescence in a business can be devastating so not convinced the new format can overcome the death of print. The business cards price down in the FT article is truly scary. Management here are fantastic. Trouble is they are running flat out to stand still, at best!
No more downgrades me thinks. 27 store,s on the horizon. hxxp://www.nettl.com/uk/find-a-studio/
With over 15 years development under it's belt, w3p is already in use at over 1000 sites around the world. It is the leading design-2-print solution in the global market.

19 February 2015 -Pre-tax profit for the current financial year is now set to be slightly below the bottom end of current market estimates. Since the last market update, trading has been tough at Printing.com. The weakening of the Euro is also reducing Sterling receipts from Euro Zone operations. Nevertheless, the new initiatives are performing as hoped. Nettl, the group's new franchise formula, should have 25 studio locations. At MarqetSpace, the group's new trade division, the objective was to reach an annualised monthly run rate of £1m, which is in sight. Another trading update is due on 7 April but the shares offer good fundamental value at the current share price and those with patience should BUY.City confidential.
Yes, I'm interested but they seem to be running uphill to standstill! Technological change will decimate printing so it's all about the new business and whether this is any good. To be fair, management here have done a fantastic job. It's certainly one to keep on watch, but too risky at present for me.
hxxp://www.printweek.com/print-week/news/1149799/grafenia-highlights-mixed-fortunes-trading-update The weakening of the euro against sterling also had an effect, reducing the company’s sterling receipts from Eurozone operations. As a result, the board anticipates pre-tax profit for the current financial year being slightly below management expectations, albeit above that of last year, and accordingly slightly below the bottom end of current market estimates of £900,000 to £1m. Last year the company posted a pre-tax profit of £755,000 and the market expectation was £900,000. “This year I think we’re going to come somewhere around the middle of this range so we’re ahead of last year from a financial perspective,” said Rafferty. “Earnings will have gone up so we would argue that is a good thing because my whole aim was to innovate and change the company, keeping the group debt free and generating cash, which is what we’re continuing to do.”
I've sold up, just not confident that there are clear signs of growth here. Good luck to holders though, it's not exactly expensive (!) so prob not much downside.
There the answer 25 Nettl store. Yes struggle but still ahead of last year. Divi be covered. Economy picked up but not for this company. Thought they might have given information on the digital printing investment they made nov/dec.
Hmm just feels like they continue to struggle to get any momentum.

OK guys so quiet, thought I would ask how many Nettl store's there would be at year end. Anyone? And if u now of any new ones?
doubt mm's have anything to do with it, just someone selling 36k below the bid @16.3p, they run a neutral book on small cap shares so you have a persistent seller and no buyers the price will go down, doesn't need anything else.
