Welcome to DTP | Design & Printing Company

About Us

DeskTop Productions Limited (DTP) was founded in 1991 by two Tanzanians, Hanif Abdulrasul and Shafiq Abdulrasul. Hanif’s ability to produce creative work, together with his passion for technology led him to a career blending art with innovation. In 1991, he started Tanzania’s first graphic design and pre-press studio, DTP.

Shafiq was an entrepreneur long before the technology industry became high profile. His determination to exceed customers’ expectations has built DTP into a regional leader in design and pre-press production. Over the years, DTP has grown from a colour separations and design house to providing printing, advertising, graphic displays, ID cards and other marketing communication products. In 2004, the company expanded into offset printing with a Heidelberg QuickMaster Pro digital offset printing press.

The philosophy and vision of staying true to print craftsmanship has seen DTP grow into an influential printer in Tanzania, catering to leading companies within East Africa. We look forward to meeting you, to find out how we can best meet your printing needs.

DTP has been built upon a foundation of solid printing knowledge, coupled with superior client service resulting in high quality printing delivered on time. At DTP we know how to consistently provide the best products for our clients. We promise to work with you, listen to your needs, advise you and take the stress out of print production. That is our job, and that is the reason international organizations, large locally owned businesses and multi-national companies prefer to work with DTP.
