Smo majhen studio, kjer se vse vrsti okoli 60 let stare tiskarske tehnike in opreme. Imamo nekaj ton svinčenih črk, pa lesenih za plakate, in celo plastičnih iz že davno pozabljene Vzhodne Nemčije. Oblikujemo in natisnemo plakate, vizitke, voščilnice, vse seveda na zelo ekološki papir. Naša tiskarska oprema je pestra: od zelo preproste namizne stiskalnice za poskusni odtis do popolnoma avtomatskega zaklopnega stroja Heideleberg. Čeprav je narejen že leta 1950, še vedno tiska z izjemno natančnostjo.

V preteklih letih smo si nabrali veliko znanja o tehniki visokega tiska in to znanje sedaj delimo na različne načine. Organiziramo Festival črk, imamo premično tiskarno, ki smo jo postavili kar na star tricikel. Z njo prek ugank, ki jih natisne tricikel, pripovedujemo zgodbe o mestu, natisnemo pa tudi sličice.

We are a small letterpress studio in which everything revolves around approximately 60 years old printing techniques and machinery. We have a few tonnes of lead letters, wooden letters for posters and even plastic ones from the long forgotten Eastern Germany. We design and print posters, business cards and greeting cards – all on eco-friendly paper. Our printing machinery is very diverse as it ranges from a very simple table top press used for test prints to the entirely automated Heideleberg GT. Even though the Heideleberg was produced in 1950 it still remains an extremely precise printing machine.

During the past years we have accumulated vast knowledge on the letterpress technique and now we try to spread this knowledge in various ways. Amongst others we organize the Festival of Letters, and we even have a mobile press that is mounted on an old tricycle. We use riddles that are printed by the tricycle to tell different stories about the town, and we also print pictures.

  • A gem in the city for typography lovers. This small print workshop is a visual treat with printing presses and drawers full of metal and wood type. They sell a small collection of letterpress prints.....  more »
  • Fantastic store! Beside choice of self stamp-printed postcards, handmade notebooks etc. absolutely the best are their (business) cards - made individually by stamping handcrafted fonts. Set of 100 cards starts from €120 and rise depending on what you can imagine (and afford). We were also very nicely served, with attention and natural kindness. Thanks!
  • Really helpful and friendly staff. Unique art and typographic stuff!
