John Sands (12 November 1818 – 16 August 1873) was an Australian engraver, printer, and stationer. He founded the John Sands company, and published the Sands Directory.
Sands was born in Sandhurst, Berkshire, and emigrated to Sydney in 1837. G. P. Walsh notes that "especially notable were his directories, almanacs, gazetteers and prints by F. C. Terry and S. T. Gill depicting colonial life."
