  • History

    In 1946, Rik Matthys started his own printing company that developed into a real family business and quickly profiled itself as an offset printing company.

    In 1984, it was Ludwig’s turn, the eldest son, to start his own business – the “Turnhoutse Fotogravure”. He too managed to build up a modern and successful company in just a few years.

    In 1998, both family businesses decided to join forces under one name and under Ludwig they formed a solid basis for the success of the company that has since become known as “Grafische Groep Matthys”.

    We are looking to the future, full of confidence, because Ludwig’s four sons guarantee the continuation of this success story.

  • Prepress expertise

    As Grafische Groep Matthys was created from the merger of Drukkerij Matthys-Beccu and the Turnhoutse Fotogravure, we have an enormous amount of in-house knowledge of important pre-press aspects. From thinking about the specifics of a correct layout to ISO certified colour proofs.

    Since 2008, we are also specialised in the unusual “inline cold foil” print work (dorure à froid).

    We are the printing company that has most experience of this process. We know all the ins and outs, the paper types, the effects, the finish options, and offer complete pre-press advice in terms of creating print work with this special technique. We can even provide proofs with real foil printing.

    This comprehensive “inline cold foil” pre-press knowledge and experience, this way of thinking with you and providing advice – without obligation – is something that is only offered by us.
