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.

  • This shop is a great place on so many different levels. At the most basic, if you are looking for a nice, handmade souvenir for yourself or someone back home, this is a great shop. Whether you pick up the great letterpress printed items made right there, or for something truly unique, the river stones on which the owner, Marko Drpić, hand carves letters in almost any font that you want, you can't go wrong. At another level just looking around Marko's shop is like being in a museum, as letterpress printing is a vanishing art. But for a real treat, Marko offers printing workshops where you can spend 1.5 hours or 3 hours learning about printing, his shop, and actually making your own prints to take home... In our case, my wife and I made a print of the Slovene alphabet, a fitting memento of the experience, the time and place in Ljubljana. Cannot think of a better way to spend some time in this beautiful city.
  • Beautiful and unique place for those who wants to have something different and original... Old fashion printing office where you can do printing workshop or just order 1st class bussines card for your company. Must visit when you are in Ljubljana...
