LYN FARRELL from Payne Print never fails to feel "passion” and "enthusiasm” after attending Proserpine Chamber of Commerce meetings.

But Mrs Farrell described the meeting this month as "particularly emotional” after hearing the stories of businesses that were affected by Cyclone Debbie.

Proserpine Payne Print will consequently partner with Proserpine Chamber of Commerce to offer free 'Open for Business' A3 Posters to all Proserpine businesses in need of a boost.

Mrs Farrell said it was the resilience of Proserpine businesses which would ensure they got back on their feet.

"True to the mighty strength and character of the (Proserpine) Chamber, (they) may have been down but certainly not out by any means,” she said.

"We are proud to be associated with you and wish you all the best in the recovery or rebuilding of your business.”

Payne Print is an established family owned printing business which employs 22 people, serving Mackay and Proserpine.

Since the retirement of Whitsunday Printing icon Peter Lewis, Payne Print purchased the customer base and full artwork of Peter's business, thus extending their services to Proserpine.
