Designed by Berg Studio, a product invention and design studio in London, Little Printer is the first in a family of connected products for the home. Receiving global press attention pre-launch, Little Printer has already featured in a wide variety of publications and magazines—both printed and online.

Little Printer will launch with an initially limited, but highly engaged audience of design and technology-literate opinion formers. At this stage the value for publishers and content creators is not reach, but a positive association with an inventive and charming new product. Much photographed, the launch publications will be seen not only by the subscribers but by also by the global review press, publishing on and offline.

Connected to the Web, Little Printer has a wide range of sources available to check on your behalf. We call them “publications”. Subscribe to your favourites and choose when you’d like them delivered.

Right on time Little Printer gathers everything it needs to prepare a neat little personalised package, printed as soon as you press the button. You can get deliveries multiple times a day, but we find once or twice works best–like your very own morning or evening newspaper.

Little Printer holds a compact, inkless, thermal printer. Its zero-configuration wireless connection to the Web (via the Bridge unit, included) lets you place it wherever you have a power outlet. Little Printer is constructed in high-gloss injection moulded plastic and the brushed steel faceplate holds the paper, framing each delivery as it prints.

Graphic design is at the heart of everything Little Printer delivers, making the most of connectivity and print combined. Rendered in crisp black and white these tactile publications take visual cues from traditional halftone lithography and modern pixel art, whether they’re the latest international news or this week’s gossip from friends.

Little Printer sits in your home, but it’s BERG Cloud that does the heavy lifting. Because publications are created in our cloud on the Web, not in your front room, we can offer more services for your Little Printer without the need for updates or a replacement product.

BERG Cloud Bridge sits by your broadband router and wirelessly connects Little Printer to the web, which makes it easy for you to place Little Printer where you can see it.
