AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST STREET POSTER NETWORK
We are a proudly Australian-owned, independent company, with factories/offices, account management, and printing facilities in both Sydney and Melbourne.
We have been operating for well over 3 decades and our distribution network is Australia-wide.
Rock Posters was founded due to the need for agents, producers, comedians, record labels, musicians and promoters to heighten awareness quickly, easily and cost-effectively. Our guiding principles of responsiveness, integrity, transparency and sheer hard work exists as strongly today as it did in ’86.
It is now over 37 years since we printed our first poster, and the medium now thrives in an unrecognisable environment. It has always been cost-effective, and it has always worked; if you have a limited budget, spend it where it works best.
The business was started by the D’Aquino brothers, Frank and John, alongside Joe Di Natalie in Johnston Street, Fitzroy in 1986. The Melbourne music scene was thriving and John, Frank and Joe worked tirelessly to keep up with the demands of promoters and record labels alike.
Following expansionary moves to North Melbourne, Brunswick and the current Melbourne base in Thornbury, the infrastructure and equipment became more sophisticated and a fully-functioning Sydney factory in Marrickville was added. In conjunction with John, our fifteen+ year veteran Director, Mike Akers, has driven the development and innovation of the Sydney business for more than a decade and contributed significantly to Rock Posters’ diversification, all while pioneering the ability to book a truly national campaign with one phone call or email to either office.
The Sydney operation has helped solidify the Rock Posters footprint both in NSW and nationally and continues to work seamlessly with distributors Australia-wide.Read more
