Hi, I’m Paul Noble, UK expat and Tassie Local. My cleverly random career path of graphic design, printmaking and engineering became the foundation for my company, Noble Ink. With a laptop, a printer and some quill + ink drawings, my Tasmanian wife and I migrated from the UK to TAS. I had always wanted to start my own business so then, out of a suitcase, I did. It started with a borrowed printer, some of my designs, and our local market. I created some prints, business cards and signs for myself (sometimes that’s all you need to start a business!) and soon I was taking orders from other vendors for things like jam jar labels. Word of mouth has always been my favourite way to grow. When some printing equipment came up for sale at an auction, I jumped on the opportunity, found a space, and started expanding. In 2009, almost a year after leaving the UK, I turned Noble Ink’s closed sign to open in my new shop- I still remember my first customer.
People come to me because they want products that will enhance important opportunities and life events; weddings, celebrations, new businesses, job interviews, sales, conferences and more. Exceptional service comes standard because I sell solutions. Noble Ink is a twice Finalist in the KCEC 2015 business Awards.
