About Terrace Press
Terrace Press is a family owned letterpress and design studio based in Sydney. Our four generations of family print makers have passed down their passion for the beautiful art of printmaking. We perform all printing and design in-house, using our two restored antique letterpress machines as well as utilising digital and large format printing for ‘on the day’ stationery and signage. We love the craftsmanship of the letterpress printing process, with each piece being hand printed one colour at a time on luscious 100% cotton paper.
Behind The Brand
Your best piece of advice for event planning?
Don’t leave invitations to the last minute. Many handmade processes like letterpress and calligraphy take time, not to mention the creative process should be fun and playful – not rushed. Plus – what is the point of planning an event that no one is even invited to?
What was the spark for Terrace Press? Where did the story begin?
It was my love of print. It was something that was in my blood. As the fourth generation (and first female) printer in my family it was something I had grown up on. I feel so lucky to be carrying on the craft that I have learnt from my Grandfather.
What inspires you creatively?
Colours and textures and experimenting on the press once a job is complete.
Most memorable place you’ve travelled?
Through the Rocky Mountains in Colorado USA
On a typical weekend we’ll find you?
Some weekends on the printing press! but in winter you will definitely find me skiing down the mountains at Perisher.
