Who we are
The Print Society is a creative and inspiring Australian homewares, design and lifestyle brand. We are committed to accessible design, Australian manufacturing and materials, and doing all we can to look after the environment.
“Do what feels right. Take a chance. And have fun along the way.” – The Print Society
This is The Print Society’s maxim and a constant reminder of how we want to live life and run our business. The Print Society was founded by Karen Johnston who left behind her corporate career in a bid to follow her long standing passion for design and a desire to build a creative brand that balances fresh ideas with value for money for fellow design lovers. The Print Society is based in Sydney and produces a range of soft furnishings, wall art, objects and accessories.
Designing for your future
The Print Society’s patterns and products are designed to be relevant not just for the current season, but for many years to come. Whether for your home or office, it’s important to us that our designs can support your desire to change your look over time, have multiple uses and can be easily moved from place to place.
Our design style
The Print Society’s designs have a strong emphasis on colour, shape and pattern. Our products are created with a sense of fun and liveliness, and are designed to bring joy to your home, office or commercial space. All of our designs are original and are brought to life in our Sydney studio.
We are champions for Australian businesses and communities
The Print Society is proudly Australian owned and made. We seek to source our materials from fellow Australian businesses, and all of our products are made in our Sydney studio or by local manufacturers. We are particularly pleased to be using Australian made non-toxic textile inks that are produced in Sydney.
We strive to limit our environmental impact
Mother Nature provides us with endless possibilities and beauty. The Print Society believes in reciprocity and therefore has a strong focus on environmental sustainability. We consider our impact throughout our operations, buying and manufacturing processes to ensure our footprint is as minimal as possible. We regularly seek to improve our environmental position by seeking out and adopting new materials and systems.
We support local charities
The Print Society is constantly on the look out for ways to support Australian charities. We do this by creating project based campaigns that allow us to donate profits to charities who are working to support all Australians. In October 2018, we were proud to support the McGrath Foundation in their mission to fund Breast Care Nurses.
