The Beginning

The Foot & Playsted story started in the shadow of the great depression, in 1926, when Jack Foot & William Playsted combined their experience and craftsmanship - enabling the face of commerce in Launceston to become professionally branded through print communication.

Generations of Printing

Through difficult times and while many traditional businesses began shutting up BOOKSTORE, Foot & Playsted remained. Through investing significantly in the latest digital printing technology, Foot & Playsted were able to stay ahead of the game. And – not only this – but they hope to be around long into the future.

The decision was also made to aquire Tasmania’s only bookbinding services, only diversifying their already large branch of specialties.
