ARPLEN is a manufacturer of media for fine arts and digital printing from Barcelona (Spain), but it was born as a manufacturer of bookbinding textiles.
The evolution of the book industry made to disappear the bookbinding textiles, changing them for other materials, so we had to change our business. We could use the know-how that we already had about coating to adapt our business and start to coat textiles for the fine arts industry. After having produced canvases for fine arts for some years and having acquired enough knowledge about them, we started to produce canvases and textiles for digital printing, which nowadays represents our main business and have given us international reputation.
Controlling the whole production process from the purchase of the yarn to the coating and converting allows us to continually improve and develop new products, as well as adjusting the costs to be able to offer good quality media made in Europe at a competitive price. Our range of products for digital printing include different qualities of canvases and textiles for decoration and promotional uses, like roll ups, backlits, banners, self-adhesive textiles…
This year at FESPA we will be presenting our new range of flame retardant products, which by the moment is composed by: Eco BackLit FR, Wall Deco Textile FR and Textile Block Out FR. We will be also presenting our new size of 3,20 m wide, at which we are progressively offering our products.
