The Revoria Press PC1120 investment is Arti Grafiche Biellesi’s first foray into digital print technology after many years producing print on analogue presses.
Fujifilm has a lot of expertise in this area and we’re excited to work with them and see how our new Revoria investment can help us embark on a new chapter
Alberto Maula | Arti Grafiche Biellesi
- Arti Grafiche Biellesi is an experienced print service provider specialising in high value commercial and packaging applications
- Following an increase in demand for shorter runs and specialised print jobs, the company invested in Fujifilm’s Revoria Press PC1120
- Investment marks a switch-over from offset to digital for the company
- Arti Grafiche Biellesi previously had to outsource work requiring white ink, but can now produce it all in-house
- The ability to print in special colours, with white ink, and on a wide range of substrates were all key reasons for the investment
- Arti Grafiche Biellesi is confident that the investment will help the company move forward and address customer demands
Based in the Biella area of Candelo, north-western Italy, Arti Grafiche Biellesi is an experienced print service provider that specialises in a wide variety of printed products. From catalogues to brochures, and from window displays to labels and packaging, the company offers much in the way of versatility and expertise. It is also an adaptable, forward-thinking company and has recently invested in Fujifilm’s Revoria Press PC1120, 120ppm toner-based press – recognising the increase in demand for shorter runs and specialised print jobs. Arti Grafiche Biellesi believes this investment will help the company move forward.
“We print on such a diverse range of materials to produce our products,” explains Alberto Maula, owner of Arti Grafiche Biellesi. “We’re not a conventional print company; 90% of our work is textile-related packaging and packaging for fashion and luxury goods. This involves complicated print jobs on special paper – some coloured, some very thick – these may be cardboard based and have rough surfaces. The end result is products of exceptional quality, and while we have enjoyed much success with our offset equipment, we recognise digital printing to be an increasingly important factor in the evolution of the industry.
With the new Revoria press, we can do print jobs with special colours and print onto a wider variety of substrates with varying thickness. The white ink in particular is remarkable, and the silver and gold also look fantastic.

“We’ve now made our first ever investment in digital printing equipment with Fujifilm’s Revoria Press PC1120. This machine will help us to address the needs of our customers; not just for the creation of more short run jobs, which are now becoming increasingly common, but it will help us to create some incredible print work.”
Colours and versatility were key to the investment. Maula continues: “With the new Revoria press, we can do print jobs with special colours and print onto a wider variety of substrates with varying thickness. The white ink in particular is remarkable and will open a lot of new doors for us – we have had a lot of requests for print jobs with white ink which we had to outsource, up until now. The silver and gold also look fantastic and there are many ways in which we can create some beautiful products for our customers.”
The digital printing market may be new for Arti Grafiche Biellesi, but for Alberto Maula, it’s an exciting journey to embark on: “We are known for offset – we have always been offset. But this move to digital, while mainly an unknown area for us, is full of opportunities. Fujifilm has a lot of expertise in this area and we’re excited to work with them and see how our new Revoria investment can help us embark on a new chapter.»
Taro Aoki, head of digital press solutions at Fujifilm Graphic Communications Europe says: “Arti Grafiche Biellesi knows how to print exceptional work and create some stunning visual products for its customers. We are delighted they see the Revoria Press PC1120 as a crucial part of their business moving forwards.»
