Whatever you would like to print – and whatever surface you want to see it printed on – we will relish the opportunity to deliver a top-quality solution.
Precision and quality on any surface
We can print graphics, images, shapes or patterns to produce a variety of materials including wall panelling, hoardings, signage and glass.
Banners, fabrics, aluminium, plastics – there is virtually no limit to the surfaces on which your printed items can appear.
Because ar18 offers an all-encompassing range of services under a single roof, our print team work with colleagues in CNC cutting to deliver the finished article in an exceptionally short time-frame. Our core skill is large format flat-bed SwissQprint UV printing. We’ll cut your substrate to shape, print and apply graphics in-house. That surface can be up to 2.5 metres wide.
At ar18, we are constantly reinvesting to ensure our teams have the very latest technology to hand.
We are always happy to accept a challenge from customers – if someone brings in a bunch of bananas and asks us to print on them… why not?
