SIA “Drukātava” is a private company, whose owners work for the company every day. We want our clients to be satisfied with our services and we do everything to make our cooperation favourable in a long run. Meanwhile we are aware that we might incur losses in a short term.
Everything began with an idea of digital printing as a very interesting and prospective industry. We dared to start this business without any money, equipment, professional experience but with a very strong determination. We found a friend who trusted us with the equipment and in May 2005 in the basement on Lāčplēša Street we started to turn our dream into reality.
At that time it was something completely new – to print one copy of a book. Our potential clients had to be convinced that is possible. However, it was proven that digital technologies make publishing of small print run cheaper. It was especially important for educational institutions – universities and technical schools. Moreover, we had an opportunity to publish books of young authors, as well as such books that nobody risked to publish. Finally every author could turn the dream of own book into reality.
SIA “Drukātava” is still the only company specialising in digital printing of books, in addition offering digital printing for business cards, catalogues, brochures, stickers and other materials.
In the past years we have published and printed fiction, as well as scientific and popular science publications. The most we like working with textbooks and doctoral theses – publications that help us to acquire new knowledge. We print books of foreign publishers, we have become an exporting manufacturer.
Our technological capacity allows to print also small polygraphic works – brochures, business cards, small posters, handouts. We print invoices, personalised letters, contracts, notifications, reminders, personalised marketing offers. We pack those in envelopes to transfer them to providers of postal services.
