Welcome to Artik’s blog, first a little about who we are.
Artik started as a custom printed T-shirt shop, over the years we expanded to provide customers with many custom promotional items such as pin-back buttons, magnets, mouse pads, custom stickers, printed pens, embroidered caps and golf shirts, jackets and thousands of other items.
We have fully automatic screen-printing equipment, button-pressing machines, numerous printers, The co-owner’s wife has a company with an embroidery facility featuring 26-head auto embroidery machines with in-house digitizing. We are able to process small and high quantity orders quickly, and on time.
It all began back in 1985, when Rafael Danan and Shaul Nir decided to combine their Computer Science and Economics Degrees, along with their experience in the apparel industry, to form a new business.
Artik was born…
Artik began its product line with custom printing and embroidery. The business continues to grow, and each year new customized products are made available to customers. Artik has expanded its in-house manufacturing. Now, there is nothing that Artik cannot produce in promotional products.
Meet the Business Owners Saul Nir and Rafi Danan.
Back in 1985 my ad in the Yellow Pages said: ‘Friendly service, always on-time’. This has been the business philosophy over the last 25 years.
I completed an Economics degree and then opened a screen printing business in my basement, I learned everything from books and videos (VHS back then) and trial and error.
Over the years I joined up with Rafi Danan and together we moved to bigger locations and got professional equipment. Rafi studied computers and is great at running machines and bringing energy and sales to the company.
We now run a local, friendly, efficient screen printing and promotional items shop in downtown Toronto. I welcome you to come visit us anytime.
We also like to have fun, here is a ‘must see’ holiday video we created.
