City Love


You probably already know that we at Ink & Spindle love our city of Melbourne.

And it looks like the City of Melbourne loves us back.

We just found out on Monday that we are one of the proud recipients of the City of Melbourne Small Business Grant!!! We were hopeful, but never too hopeful - you never know what sort of businesses you're up against. The news is still sinking in, but needless to say we are stoked. It allows us to get productive a lot quicker. New screens for customer print jobs (we'll be ready for you in the new year we promise!) and more importantly an in house oven so we can heat-set fabric ourselves and take a week off our turn around time.

Yay. It really takes a load off our shoulders, and it's nice to be validated by your own city :)

Thanks Melbourne!

you guys really deserve it.

Congratulations guys! Make sure that the cash goes towards creating some more fab textiles rather than adding a jacuzzi to the offices (are you tempted now that I've put the thought into your minds?!) Looking forward to seeing what's next from Ink and Spindle! :)
