Very good all-round high-quality printer. They do a lot of art books. They are
much cheaper than Dutch printer. That’s partly because the environmental
regulations concerning printing ink and chemicals in Belgium are not as strict as
in The Netherlands, so they work with cheaper, but more polluting inks. But with
those more polluting inks you sometimes can achieve more quality. The other
reason is that they work with inmates for the binding. Obviously very popular
amongst the pennywise Dutch graphic designer or artist on a budget.
High-end offset printer. Good quality in every aspect. Well known as an artbook
printer. Minimum print run 300. English, French, and Dutch spoken.
We do NOT use prison labour for any part of our processes. We DO use a “social
workplace” as they call them in Belgium, where physically or mentally challenged
workers undertake tasks within their capabilities, such as packing, collating, etc.
This is not an exploitative operation on our part, but a reflection of our efforts to
create employment opportunities within the community, and offer these guys and
ladies a means of an income which would be difficult for them to obtain elsewhere.
Regarding the use of poisonous or hazardous inks…ermm..bullshit…..we are an
FSC registered company which complies with strict conservation standards for ALL
