Large & Complex

Known widely as a ‘printer’s printer’ there is no job too small, large or complex for Focal Printing from your smallest business card run through to the most intricate and difficult printing task.


Renown for high quality of work, state-of-the-art technology and commitment to excellence, Focal have worked hard to be established as one of the premier printers in Tasmania.

Focal Printing is a Tasmanian Institution

With humble beginnings starting in the family home in 1978 before moving to the premises where you can find us today, Focal Printing has always been a market leader and committed to printing of the highest distinction.


Strong family traditions have conveyed particular Focal Printing skills and craftsmanship through the decades including complex tricks of the trade that are learnt, practised and refined in-house to build a reputation of superiority and brilliance.


In fact, Focal was the first Tasmanian owned company to install a four-colour process offset Press in Tasmania back in 1992 and have a continual goal for improvement and excellence in every job done.

Today, a new addition to the family is a new five-colour and Aqueous coating. This offset press has delivered even faster and higher quality work for clients.


Whatever your printing requirements we can perform the job for you.
