Our printer at work - printing demonstration

for groups, families and schools

Ever wanted to know what life was like in the Officina Plantiniana? Once you’ve had a visit and printing demonstration daily life in the printing press won’t hold anymore secrets for you.

How are letters made and how do you turn letters into sentences? Our printer prepares the text for you and prints it out.

For printing demonstrations on the Toppan press, groups and families pay €33. Printing demonstrations are free for schools and groups of students (up to 26 years). 

Would you like to try typesetting yourself? Then we recommend one of our workshops.
