Queensberry and COVID-19
Update: Wednesday March 25th 2020

Hello everyone,

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic the New Zealand Government has put the country on an “Alert Level 4” lockdown for at least four weeks effective tonight (details below).


As a result we can now confirm that as of this afternoon the Queensberry Print Lab and Bindery will be on hold for that time. Many of our staff are already working from home, and today the rest of the team are busy sending out as much work as possible before they too self-isolate at home.

Please continue to send in your orders, which we will process as usual. It will obviously take 4-5 weeks for us to deliver, but by ordering now you will get top priority when the Lab and Bindery swing back into action.

It will also be “business as usual” with online support, as those of us who can work from home will continue to do so. Please email queries to  or use the chat box at the bottom of our web site pages. Both will take you directly into our support system.

At Queensberry we will also be using this time to work hard “on the business, not in the business”. That includes continuing development on products and services, including Workspace and Print Shop for example.

Many of our customers around the world, especially in Australia, North America and the UK, may, like Kiwis, be in isolation. For you, working “on the business” might mean focus on your online presence, your marketing, promoting to past clients, and of course working hard to generate work when things start returning to normal.

As the situation develops we will provide updates by email, and also on the Queensberry InsiderInstagram and our own blog.

We are thinking of you all wherever you are. Stay safe, and look after your loved ones, especially the most vulnerable.

Very best wishes
Stephen
