Hi, I'm trying to recreate a printed edge similar to the image below. I am guessing it might be a brush effect (I am not looking for a blur!) Any ideas greatly received!

Jacobs suggestion will make you happy, but you can also try Effect > Roughen with a small size and high detail.

Ah, Ton, now I see what you see, and that roughening will make M much happier.

 

My misinterpretation was that of a decorative border (created by repetition) on the outside of a (white) path.

A variation of this:

as a scatter brush (all set to random)

gives you this when applied to the stroke of a shape:
