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.

Quality Focused.

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.

6-Colour Offset

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.


Fast, Flexible Digital

We operate the latest in digital printing technology with our Ricoh and Konica-Minolta digital printing presses.

Our digital print services enable affordable low-volume print options that approach offset quality.

Digital flexibility – variable data and personalised printing are available.

We take environmetal responsibility seriously.  Our practices include:

  • Recycling of waste paper, used chemicals, inks, plates and rags
  • Printing with recycled products
  • Vegetable-based inks
  • Water-based environmentally-friendly aqueous coatings
  • Re-use of cartons where clients agree
  • Water dischage subject to council monitoring

Finish in style.
