Deckled edge press - who we are

Who we are:

Deckled Edge Press is a partnership between Fiona Dempster and Barry Smith. We are both artists in our own right; yet share a love of all things letterpress.

Deckled Edge Press - What we do

What we do:

Deckled Edge Press is a small home-based press, where we work together and print small editions of booklets, poetry, posters, post cards and other offerings, nearly always with a social justice message.

We believe in the power of print to share these messages of support and inspiration and love working together on them.


Where we do it:

Deckled Edge Press is situated in Maleny, in the beautiful hinterland of the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. The press works out of an American barn shed which used to be our home.  It is a delightful and quirky space with magnificent views of the Glass House Mountains.
