Award in partnership with Grafiche dell'Artiere


Printing well is an art form. For Grafiche dell’Artiere it is a vocation, our main objective for almost 40 years.

Founded in 1977 by Gianni and Patrizia Gamberini, Grafiche dell’Artiere has become a completely unique company amongst Italian printshops, thanks to its obsessive search for quality and new printing, paper and binding solutions. Grafiche dell’Artiere is a company built on a human scale, where each and every employee is driven by a great passion for printing. This means that every job, even the smallest, receives unrivalled attention and commitment, and is given the utmost care and attention right through to delivery. The work of Grafiche dell’Artiere is set apart by our strong sensitivity and attention towards colour, paper, media and custom processes:

the goal is to provide an efficient, complete service with exhaustive technical support, all strictly within the specified delivery times.

A full-service offering, from pre-press right through to printing and packaging.
