The union was formed in December 1920 under the name of Amalgamated Printing Trade Employees Union of New South Wales by an amalgamation of the Australian Bookbinders' and Paper Rulers' Federated Association, New South Wales Lithographic Association, Letterpress Printers' Machinists' Industrial Union of Employees of NSW, and the Process Engravers' Union of NSW. In the late 1940s it amalgamated with the Victorian Lithographic Printers' Employees' Union to form the Amalgamated Printing Trade Employees' Union of Australia. The union amalgamated with the Printing Industry Employees Union of Australia in 1966 to form the Printing and Kindred Industries Union of Australia.
