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.
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.
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.
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
