The Publishing world is extremely diverse. It is responsible of making stories and information accessible to all interested. In their physical forms, publications are created as printed matter. In their non-physical forms, the possibilities are wide and growing.
At the Publication Station, we support your projects throughout the process of publishing – from using the best techniques to producing your content to choosing the most suitable mediums to present them.

Printmaking Studio Where you can find the classic printing tools such as screen printing / letterpress / etching / linoleum and more, next to modern tools such as the Riso printer / laser cutter and a vinyl cutting plotter.
Print Studio The place for your digital prints > posters, postcards, stickers, booklets and more. Try out the Mimaki printer to print on (almost) any material! and make your creation complete by using one of our finishing tools - the glue-binding machine, the paper cutter, wire-o binder and more.
