How it all began - Est 2009

Designer Vici-Jane had been a volunteer at a Victorian printers within a local museum as a teenager, where she learnt the art of letterpress printing. (The old fashioned way, with type, chases formes and treadles). During her wedding planning, she discovered that there was a lack of quality wedding stationery on the UK market, so forged a plan to mix contemporary design, with old style printing - This is how Artcadia was born.

Her husband Richard who was a gas engineer by trade was recruited by his wife when things got busy. Thankfully he was no stranger to a Heidelberg Windmill as he had already lovingly restored one or two in his spare time...just for fun!

Nowadays, they work together with the help of some handy packers and the odd volunteer - Vici-Jane more sat on her bum doing the techy stuff (with baby Roni under the desk) and Richard risking life and limb operating old presses and guillotines.
