Knust is a special printworkspace and independent publisher in Nijmegen.

For more than thirty years we have been making stencilprinted matter, nowadays better known as Riso printing. During that time, we fully mastered the technology and gained an extensive selection of more than fifty color drums. Knust is the place for beautifully finished and colorful printed matter.

Stencil workshop

History

Knust was founded in 1984 by Jan Dirk de Wilde, in the former squat building de Westland in Nijmegen. In those days the printing was done with analogue stencilmachines of Roneo and Gestetner. Stencilprinting was an easy way of making selfpublished books and zines and a cheap alternative for copyprinting. This quickly led to a growing demand for Knust’s printed matter. Over the years, Knust has developed in stencilprinting, Riso (and Ricoh), and we have inspired and helped other makers and starting workshops in working with this printing technique.

Stencilprinting / Riso

Stencilprinting can be compared with silkscreen printing. It is a printing technique which makes use of a blocked out and an open area, using a digital stencilmachine or stencilduplicator. The machines make use of either one or two color drums. Each color has its own drum, around which a stencil (master sheet) is placed, when the intended image has been made into the master sheet. The technology is ideal for small quantities and graphic printed matter.

Colorful and environment-friendly

The analog and charming feel of the technique goes within the type of ink and the small shifts that occur during the printing process. The ink is based on soybean oil (nowadays also rice bran oil) and does not dry completely. It is therefore best to print on uncoated, more rough paper that absorbs the ink more. This contributes to the beautiful vivid printed colors that characterize the technique.

Here we present a selection of some of the books, (maga)zines, prints and other printed matter that are being made by Knust.

Workshops & Expertise

On a regular base you can find us at art book fairs in the Netherlands and abroad.

We also give workshops, lectures and advice focused on stencil- and Riso printing and the making of art books. Regularly we give a workshop in this printing technique in Knust in AGA Lab. For more information and for workshops and expertise on request, please contact us at: drukwerk@extrapool.nl

Residencies

In addition to commissioned print jobs, Knust also publishes books together with Extrapool.
Since 2011 there have been ongoing book residency projects within the Extrapool program. These editions involve collaboration with various designers, artists and illustrators. Ongoing projects are: Art Prison and Work Holiday.

For more information about the open call deadlines and the submission of a book proposal, please contact us at: boekwerk@extrapool.nl

Do you already have experience with this printing technique and do you live close to Amsterdam?
Then you can also work on a DIY-base yourself in our second printworkspace Knust in AGA Lab in Amsterdam.
