The Distillery Letterpress Printing

Our Capabilities

At The Distillery, we are a team of creative people who have mastered how to craft specialty print. We are the specialists for tangible, creative projects where quality means more than all else.

Our production methods are as unique as they are beautiful, and we proudly offer the following services from our studio in Darlinghurst, Sydney:

  • letterpress printing
  • foil printing
  • embossing
  • die-cutting
  • packaging production
  • paper duplexing
  • edge colouring
  • specialty bookbinding
  • laser cutting
  • wood crafting

Our production services extend to more traditional avenues including offset printing, digital printing, screen printing, saddle stitching, perfect binding, and case binding from our partner’s production facilities in Marrickville.

We work with old-school methods, but think with new-school minds. As creative people, we’re always curious about new possibilities and love stretching the limits of production possibilities. We take pride in combining different production techniques together, and investing into research for new production methods.

When timing matters too

The Distillery is the perfect partner when you’re up against tight deadlines. As a large full service production agency, we are one of the fastest letterpress studios in the world. With our Overtime Express Service, our production team will stay back and work around the clock until your project is finished.

We succeed in meeting crazy production deadlines. We take pride in our history of express project accomplishments, including letterpress printing and packaging 24,000 greeting cards in 5 working days.


The best paper stocks. Here in Sydney.

We love working with Australian paper merchants where possible. We’ve found that the best papers for specialty production however are not the same stocks used for offset and toner printing. The best specialty papers are often found offshore.

The Distillery want to spread the love, and open the minds of local designers about what is possible with paper. Both direct and in conjunction with our partners, we’re proud to promote, import and offer fine paper stocks in Australia from the these boutique paper mills:

  • Crane & Co – Lettra, Crest
  • GF Smith – Colorplan
  • Gmund
  • Cordenons – WILD
  • Fedrigoni
  • Magnani
  • Reich Paper
  • French Paper Co

More than just paper…

The Distillery specialise in crafting more than just paper. Selected woods and fabrics are compatible with letterpress and foil printing, while a large variety of substrates can be laser-cut, crafted and moulded to create the perfect shape, look and feel for your creative project.
