The company cares about its clients and that is why the focus is on reliability. Seri-Art combines a constant research of service improvement with the respect of the times and the flexibility needed to respond to all kinds of requests.
Seri-Art was founded by Valter Galbignani who, today, together with his son Matteo, leads the company through the innovations of the sector with the dedication, attention and initiative of the beginnings.
From an entrepreneurial adventure animated by a youthful enterprising to a reality of national reference for screen and digital printing, this is the story of the birth of Seri-Art:
It was 1966 and there was only one thought in my mind: “I can’t go on like this! When I get to find a customer who wants a T-shirt with a brand, an emblem or a writing all the earning goes to the printer! It cannot be that difficult to use a printer…I’m sure I can do it by myself!”.
Every night I went home thinking about how I could get a printer. It was Sunday, the day of my eighteenth birthday: I was at the oratory and Father Villa was after me to confess, but I continued to escape saying that I was very busy with my job. Some weeks later I had no option but to confess because I had been invited to my cousin’s wedding.
“Is that all?” Father Villa asked me.
“Before the penitence tell me something about your tours after work“.
“ Nothing gets past you, Father!” I told him all about my business with the printing of T-shirts. “Would you like an offer for the restoration of the bell tower now?”
“You are a fool, Valter! Keep the offer for your printer!”
I went to the wedding and I met an uncle from Milan who was in the business of newspapers printing: he repaired rotary press.
We talked a lot about new textile printing techniques and he told me that Milan was full of opportunities. He also told me that his colleague was selling an old but well-maintained printer for 200 thousands Liras. I immediately decided: I’ll buy it using my next 3 salaries, and I did it!
The story continued: Father Villa helped me get the printer, he brought me to Milan to pick it up and once back in Cremona I started this adventure with my partner Antonio. It was precisely the end of July when we started this adventure: the 23rd of July, 1966.
Since 1988, Seri-Art is associated to Confindustria with the Industrial Association of Cremona. Valter Galbignani was President of Industrial Associations for small sized companies of Cremona for 8 years; he was also President of small sized companies in Lombardy. The company’s excellence has been acknowledged.
Seri-Art is listed among the 99 excellent companies of Lombardy and among the 450 excellent companies in Italy (Il Sole 24 Ore, 22nd January, 2007) for development and innovation.
There is a lot of the way Seri-Art understands its work in this saying: every screen or digital printing is a unique project, where the quality of the work is measured in detail often less than tenths of a millimeter. This is the level of attention and care that the company pursues every day.
Seri-Art was born from the courage of a young man who followed his passion and invested to make it a reality. It is precisely that same dedication that has guided the company since 1966 and which is still part of its style.
Seri-Art places great value on people's competence and its continuous development: the company team is a significant resource and the key for the business success.
That is the reason why the company has been pursuing the respect of nature for years, with the adoption of eco-friendly materials and colours for the prints. In order to power its production of clean and renewable energy, Seri-Art also activated a powerful photovoltaic system.
