We merge aesthetics with form and production.
Excellent design is a state of mind and is more than just good craftsmanship – it is about good ideas. We cultivate high aspirations brand and product perception and their coherent visual enactment. This is what guides us in the genesis of brand and product creations such as printed business material, mailings, books, brochures, posters or other imprints.
Our feu sacré for classic printing by no means precludes an affinity for digital design – on the contrary, it is a mark of our versatility. Our product managers, designers, UX specialists and programmers work together in a spirit of interdisciplinarity to develop state-of-the-art solutions for the complete palette of digital channels. Thought through to their full conclusions in terms of content and precisely resolved in terms of form.
The best way to ensure that material comes out perfectly in the end is to feed it in properly at the beginning. Our digital-print designers ensure the quality of the data processing and colour configurations at the point of input. With their schooled eyes and with multiple control mechanisms they assess each and every detail. Including the detail of the detail too. So that the output is entirely correct – precisely as our customers expect it to be.
As carefully as we treat the formal elements, so scrupulously we also handle the content. Our proofreading office tackles text content professionally. With orthographic thoroughness and precision – if wanted including stylistic finesse.
The transformation of the grand old black art of printing
into a sustainable green art. That’s what we work at every day.
Dedicatedly. Passionately. With force.
Printing / Letterpress
After Johannes Gutenberg revolutionised printing in 1450 with the introduction of movable metal type, for a long time the printed word acquired something magical about it. The craft of printing was reverentially referred to as “the black art”, and those initiated into its secrets enjoyed a high standing. This widely dwindling magic of yesteryear lives on within the hallowed walls of our venerable printing hall. This is where we continue to celebrate printing and letterpress, using machines up to 100 years old side by side with high-tech equipment. From small to large print runs. Fashioned by applying today’s design skills with the knowledge handed down from over 120 years.
Offset printing, a refinement of 19th-century lithography, has today transformed into a cutting-edge printing technique. With us, computer-based reproduction is combined with a profound know-how and brings about a wonderful offset quality: crystal-sharp contours, brilliant lightfast colours and practically no ink rub-off. One of our master disciplines for high-quality printed products in large to very large print runs.
Digital printing is the quickest way to transpose designed content onto paper. In our case, we deploy a newest-generation digital-printing machine, which allows for large-format and highly individualised, as well as image-personalised, printings. We produce small print runs of a very high calibre and at attractive prices. We also realise sophisticated digitally printed products in opaque white, neon colours and security print to the highest standards.
Direct marketing, in our eyes, is aimed not at addresses but at people. We individualise and personalise direct marketing mailings – regardless of size and number of copies – to the maximum extent possible and accomplish tangible emotionality and physicality. We produce all the accoutrements, including envelopes, and also take responsibility for the packaging and posting. So that your mailings arrive not simply in the letterbox but in the minds of your target group.
The efficiency and the variety of possibilities provided by our lettershop solutions are certified. Precise, digitally controlled processes, if required combined with meticulous manual craft, enable highly individualised enveloping, the film wrapping of magazines and the entire processing of mailings. Our complete in-house procedures guarantee economical and ecological processes, as well as privacy.
Whenever the challenge lies in enabling printed materials to attain their full exclusivity, that’s our real virtuosity. We blend the conception and the finishing techniques to form a perfect print product. With refinements such as print coatings, embossing or UV coating, we imbue the products with an especially lavish touch and create luxurious items that are a delight to the hands – objects that are not only liked by a discerning clientele but are dearly loved.
In an increasingly digitised world, printed paper items are a compelling instrument.
They alter our perception, allow us to see things through different eyes and teach us to love the intrinsic nature of objects.
For us, doing a full job also means delivering the entire assignment. Tidily prepared and carefully packed, the printed material arrives with you as scheduled. Either directly from our logistics team or delivered by post. If you pick up the consignments yourself, you have the advantage that we are centrally located and hopefully can find the time to enjoy a cup of our excellent coffee.
