Our History

Computer Sashes & Rosettes P/L was founded in 1973 to produce screen printed ribbons and sashes for our local canine associations. This part-time venture soon expanded into a full-time occupation and became large enough to warrant a move into dedicated factory premises in Thomastown, Victoria. In the early 1980's we developed a computer controlled printing press utilising dovetail dies and hydraulics to move from screen printing into the more exclusive field of embossed foil printing. Since then we have amassed a catalogue of over 100,000 logos, images and words to cater for almost all possible requests.

In 1990 we introduced a range of rosettes to perfectly compliment our sashes and ribbons. Our rosettes provide unrivalled graphic and imaging possibilities with all information provided in fine detail on the larger than average centre button. We have created unique templates and designs to cater for almost all requirements. The benefit of our system is the ability to change buttons over for the next show if the rosette isn't required, thus providing a cost saving to all clubs.

More recently, we developed a micro-processor controlled rosette pleating system which provided us, in addition to our traditional round rosette designs, the ability to accurately knife pleat around an oval template - a technically challenging and demanding undertaking. The fruits of this endeavour can be seen in our Regal (RR100) range of rosettes.

We introduced a waterproofing treatment in 1998, thus making our sashes more wear and weather resistant in the event of inclement weather conditions. We now provide this treatment on request for about a quarter of our range. Another recent project has allowed us to work exclusively with our fabric supplier to increase the fibre count and improve the overall finish of our sashes and ribbons. You'll notice the difference as we begin to roll out the new fabric over coming months.

For the past 45 years, we have constantly sought improvement and innovation so that we can now rightly claim to be the largest supplier of ribbons, sashes and rosettes in Australia. We listen, learn and look to the future to adopt new technologies at all opportunities. Our staff come from equine, canine and feline breeding/show backgrounds and have a broad knowledge base with which to provide advice. We pride ourselves on providing industry leading products and customer service at an economical price.
