Our Story

Traditional craftmanship. Modern mindset.

We are mesmerised with ink, hot foil, paper and the beautiful art of printmaking.

We operate from our Sydney studio on two beautiful antique Heidelberg letterpress machines: Felix (short for Frederick) & Elke, both from 1960.

Letterpress printing on beautiful 100% cotton paper and other specialty paper stocks we ensure a beautiful crisp impression, with all letterpress inks mixed by hand.

Each piece is hand printed one colour at a time creating something special not only to look at but also to touch.

Letterpress printing together with the mix of modern day printing techniques such as white ink printing and acrylic pieces truly brings their designs to life.

The craftsmanship of our letterpress printing is paired with the beautiful designs created by our talented team of graphic designers
who are passionate about hand lettering, calligraphy and custom illustrations.

Terrace Press is a family owned letterpress studio with our fourth generation printmaker Alex at the flywheel of this modern day establishment.

She brings together the traditional craftsmanship of letterpress printing combined with modern day printing techniques.
