The Lichtwiese Printing Centre (DZL) is a service department of TU Darmstadt affiliated to the Dean’s Office in the Department of Architecture. It uses its own equipment to produce individually designed printed material for students, employees and the institutes and facilities at TU Darmstadt. The prices at the Lichtwiese Printing Centre are not profit-oriented but instead are based on a financing concept designed to cover the operating costs.

Our range of services

The range of services covers single sheet printing and single book printing through to print runs. We pay special attention to delivering a consistent level of care and quality. In the area of large-format printing, we can handle printing projects for interior and exterior spaces, e.g. for exhibitions, in formats up to 1.6m x 10m on numerous different materials and their subsequent processing.
The team at the Lichtwiese Printing Centre would be delighted to advise you on the realisation of your ideas.
