Hands on Press
We are an independent printing press and a self-publishing studio located in Kaunas, Lithuania. The studio is run by designers and illustrators Inga ir Gabriele. We love analogue printing techniques and we hope to introduce them in creative ways to a wider audience
Seeing the lack of such places in the region urged us to establish the studio in central Kaunas where we could offer the services of risograph, screen printing, linocut, woodcut, letterpress, bookbinding and book design.
We try to be as eco-friendly as possible, therefore we use water or oil based inks that are non-toxic and doesn’t cause harm to our visitors or the planet. If you’d like to know more, get in touch.
Our goal is to promote self-publishing in various forms, such as zines, catalogues, prints, books or other ephemera. Because of the lack of the space in the studio, we tend to work with small formats and small editions. We love stories and narratives and we are sure that everyone has a story to tell.
We see printmaking as a social activity, thus we join our experiences of illustration, print and design and organise workshops where we are able to teach and promote these crafts.
We are available for various projects and we love interesting ideas: please get in touch if you would like to chat ([email protected])
