Our History

Since 1965, Artcraft has served Canada and the international market as a printer and fabricator—from design and development, to printing and fabrication, to finishing and shipping. In the 1970s, although not many end users cared, we recognized the negative effect our industry was having on the planet and began to find and create environmental solutions for our processes and products. Over the years we have pioneered a number of proprietary printing and fabrication processes that allow us to produce extremely durable AND environmentally friendly graphics. Everything we do is custom-designed and fabricated.

For all our premium indoor and outdoor graphics, fabrication, and specialty signage, wraps, murals, etc. we use environmentally-friendly, hand-crafted, high resolution, extremely durable products that stand the test of time and meet the highest standards of industry excellence. Artcraft’s products are resistant to weather, fading, mold, mildew, heat, moisture, impact, chemicals, and graffiti.

Artcraft Display Graphics is a trusted, regular supplier to a large number of corporations, government agencies, parks, museums, zoos, aquariums, themed attractions, and interpretive centres all over the world.
