Hato Press is a print and publishing house which runs a Risograph RP 3700 stencilduplicator. The risograph covers a gap in the market that has been held by digital and lithograph printing.
We apply this printing process to the production of artist publications, invites, flyers, posters, illustration prints and zines, though it was traditionally used for high volume printing and photocopying in schools, churches and small political parties.
Our main press is a Risograph RP 3700 stencil duplicator. Traditionally, Risographs have been used for high volume photocopying in schools, churches and small political parties. We have customized the process for the production of artist publications, invites, flyers, posters, illustration prints and zines.
Many of the books we produce not only make use of risograph printing but also letterpress, screen printing and offset lithography.
The Print studio in the Berlin district of “Kreuzberg” offers all the facilities for mechanical, chemical and digital printing techniques.
Ranging from the traditional printing methods, such as book printing, etching and lithography to screen-printing and offset print, the services on offer are regularly adapted to incorporate the latest technical developments. Additionally, the studio runs workshops for papermaking and bookbinding.
A whole range of printing methods may be realised: from traditional printing editions to crossover techniques and experimental projects.
