Hello! We are Ball & Doggett. Australia’s largest distributor of printable materials and consumables. We sell all sorts of raw materials that turn big ideas into physical, touchable, sniffable reality. We are the place where all great communication starts.

With offices around Australia in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart, we also have companies in our network located around the world, from New Zealand to America and Japan. We’re part of the OVOL Group led by Japan Pulp & Paper, who have a long history of trade, strong reputation and global ties.

We don’t manufacture the products we sell, we’re the curators, sourcing the best bendy, shiny, flexible, sticky, textured materials from around the world and helping our customers choose the best option for their project. From paper, packaging, inks and plastics to outdoor media and more, if you can print on it, we stock it.

We’ve been doing this for a while, more than 100 years’ in fact, so we have a trusted global network that makes sure we always deliver. Over that time, we’ve learnt a thing or two about what it takes to deliver top notch customer experience by building strong, lasting relationships with our clients and suppliers.

We have extensive global reach and a well-oiled supply chain due to our years of servicing the graphic communication industry. Put simply, we can get the goods from the mill door or supplier straight to you in a cost effective, timely way. Our local and international supply partners are screened to ensure they are reliable and adhere to strict operational and environmental standards.

We love what we do and truth be told, we’re a little geeky about the details. We get excited about the small things. You know, the technical bits like the intricacies in the print production process, the high of a good idea and we know the struggle for the perfect shade of black paper is real. We like to work with people and companies that are willing to push the limits beyond the ordinary and expected.

Plus we’re members of some great industry associations like the Australasian Paper Industry Association that represents the paper industry in Australia and other key environmental organisations to make sure we’re keeping in touch with industry trends and issues and responding accordingly..

Really, at the end of the day, we love stuff you can print on because print is the real deal, the original information super highway. Don’t get us wrong, we’re lovers of the digital realm too. But we love the physical, tactile, communication medium that is print. No swiping or battery recharging necessary.


Our commitment

To be a well balanced and sustainable business to the graphic communication and packaging industry in Australia.
