LiU-Tryck – printing more than just handbooks

Have you thought about where your exam papers come from? Or all the handbooks? And the many stickers that urge us to keep our distance? Look behind the scenes at LiU-Tryck.

At LiU-Tryck in the A building, the internal customers dominate; teachers, researchers and students. The latter group often orders printed degree projects, but might also request things like posters or even, as in one case, a specially designed board game.

Business cards and envelopes, brochures, handbooks, scientific postures and diplomas with the LiU seal in relief, window film and stickers. The list of products is long and LiU-Tryck is involved in the entire process from design, printing, pruning and gluing.

An important own product is banners, small, large and supersize. For the Kalasmottagningen, they made a 16 meter long banner.

One of the many advantages of LiU-Tryck is that they are physically located on Campus Valla and know the business well. They know how nervous doctoral students can feel and can help them with both the schedule and the design of the PhD dissertation. It might calm them down a bit.
