Est. 1926 – Still Proudly Tasmanian
Foot & Playsted Pty Ltd is still a real, Tasmanian-owned business and has grown to be one of the largest printers in Tasmania, servicing Launceston, Hobart, Burnie, Devonport and inter-state customers. The company is innovative and vibrant, embracing technology to be a leader in today’s changing market.
Every day, with every job, we realize that details matter. Whether you’re after a short or large run, a reprint or something special, each job is done right. From creative masterpieces through to invoice books, we take quality and service seriously.
The press room is capable of full multi-colour and continuous printing. The centrepieces of our offset printing operation are a 6-colour Komori press with sheet speeds of up to 15,000 sheets per hour, and its 5-colour ‘little’ brother.
Ideas. BYO or use ours.
The Design and Pre-Press area has all the expertise to get your ideas onto the page using the latest in computer technology. We are one of the few remaining printers to employ a proof-reader/editor to check all aspects of printed work and provide copy.
State of the art equipment together with our skilled staff ensure that lead times are kept to a minimum.
