Full Service Graphic Design, Web Design, Letterpress and Risograph Printing, Newburgh, New York.
Markus Hartel was born in a small industrial town in western Germany. His creative itch matched his love for mechanics when he started a typesetting apprenticeship in 1987. Times were changing and the new technology was changing the craft of printmaking forever, but Markus found a way to capitalize on this new wave of technology and opened his own commercial print shop in 1994. Once he grew restless, he closed shop and moved to New York City where he became one of the better known modern Street Photographers. Eventually, the city was too chaotic for the life he wanted to pursue and he found Newburgh in an article while on vacation. One visit to Newburgh captured him and the perfect pair of vintage letterpress machines had him hooked. He set up shop on Broadway and has loved Newburgh ever since.
