Tafeda offers a concept rather than a specific product. We make our customers unique and distinguished from their competitors with our finest paper textures.

Our beginnings

Tafeda is a family business. Established in Shoalhaven on the NSW South Coast in 1997 as an engineering service provider.

With their many years of experience and strong understanding of the paper and printing industry, founders Fernando and Teresa realized that the Australian market was restricted and only supplied a small range of textured products.

Our Offering

We emboss on demand on most papers available in Australia including packaging or self adhesive label and we grain the whole surface with one of our textures. Kind of embellishment that can be done before or after print, before or after vanish, lamination, spot uv or foil print.

Stamp emboss/deboss in a registered position is recommended to do after our texture.
