Kirsty and Luke took ownership of Breen Printing in July 2020 (yes, right in the middle of Victoria’s second lockdown!). Both started working in the printing industry in the year 2000 in separate businesses. However, their paths had intersected earlier through the Yarra Valley grapevine. Luke from Warburton and Kirsty from Healesville first met each other through mutual friends at Mt Lilydale Mercy College.

Kirsty started an apprenticeship in graphic pre-press at Breen Printing, working her way through the company and getting varied business experience. Luke worked in the plastic card printing world, beginning in production and printing before managing a multinational bureau at PLACARD. He has shared his knowledge, skills and passion with the team at Breen Printing since 2019.

Together, we share a passion for all things print and are proud to work alongside a wonderful team of professionals.

Our Story

Originally founded in 1973 by Peter Breen, Derek and Merinda Jones bought the business in 1985. Their vision was to provide quality printing solutions to Healesville and the surrounding Yarra Valley, while raising their three daughters, Rhiannon, Kirsty and Melissa. And that is just what they did. Over the next 35 years, they built a nationwide client base and employed a team of 12 staff, including all 3 of their daughters and son-in-law, Luke.

On their retirement in July 2020, Derek and Merinda passed the baton to husband and wife, Kirsty and Luke to continue the Breen Printing legacy.
