Rallings Labels has a long history in Brisbane. It was founded in 1930 by Earnest Rallings, who was a commercial printer by day and a printing teacher by night, in a small premise on Annerley Road, Wooloongabba. His two sons, Earnest Jnr and Sydney, joined the business and it became known as Rallings and Rallings. Upon the passing of one of the brothers Trevor Rowlinson purchased a half share in 1972, he then completed the purchase in 1974. He began printing labels and stickers at this time, calling this entity Treden Labels (Treden was simply a shortening of both his and his wifes’ first names – Trevor & Denise). Rallings and Rallings was a commercial printing business which focused on all types of printing from business cards, through to letterheads, magazines, docket books etc. Treden Labels was a roll fed label printing business which quickly grew to be very successful.
In 2002, Brad and Leisa Low purchased Rallings and Rallings and combined the two businesses under one company calling it Rallings Print Group Pty Ltd. In 2008 with the market rapidly shrinking the commercial printing part of the company was sold and Rallings Print Group continued printing in the niche market of labels and stickers. Whilst we are still Rallings Print Group Pty Ltd, we trade as Rallings Labels to let people know that our specialty is self-adhesive sticker and label printing.
