About Us

Printing Studio ARTIE offers services for the data creation of works using scanner and duplicate printing. We always challenge the latest in printmaking with artists pushing beyond the boundaries of conventional printing. The silkscreen print studio was set up in the U.S. in 1987, and then we returned to Japan in 2001 to launch our very own Archival®.

AWARDS

Artie's works have won top honors at the international competition for specialized printing. The Special Graphic Industry Association (SGIA) Expo is held annually in the U.S., where printers from all over the world showcase their specialty works as the main event. Artie won "Best in Show" award in 2008 and 2009. We even earned the jury's special award in 2009.
Artie's representative Izumi Kato has received the award in the "Silkscreen art printing category" for three straight years starting in 1998 in Los Angeles. Now we receive high scores in quality in the "digital printing” category.
