About ‹Grafička radionica ABAco›

Although we are digital printing shop equipped with modern printing, cutting and other finishing equipment, my father is oldschool graphic designer/printer and loves to use old machines that he started bussines with, so occasionally we use FAG Form for printing & proofing artistic posters or other exclusive printing materials and sometimes also for creasing.
