Welcome to

Markat is one of Christchurch’s leading direct market publishers.

The company was first registered in 1983 and in its early years focused primarily on producing publications that targeted the fast growing tourism industry. As its success grew, the company branched into the school sector and began publishing a road safety workbook that is now distributed to a vast majority of primary and secondary schools throughout New Zealand.


Today, Markat is a broad-based publisher with strengths in a variety of sectors. We publish and distribute a range of workbooks, booklets, directories and magazines that are aimed at specialised markets, including Civil Defence, Neighbourhood Support and the building industry.

We also print and deliver desk pads and wall planners that are intended for particular professions, including accountants, architects, barristers & solicitors, builders, contractors and school principals, and a variety of industries, such as motels, hotels & restaurants, transport and the motor vehicle trade. Distribution is both nationwide and location specific, depending on the type of publication. All pre-press work is done onsite at our head office location in Christchurch.

With a staff of 20 plus and offices in Christchurch, Dunedin and Auckland, we have firmly established ourselves in the business of direct marketing and advertising based publications.
