Founded by Vici Blenkharn in 2009, Artcadia™ is a design and letterpress company based in Shrewsbury, Shropshire. From bespoke wedding and event invitations to every day stationery and greetings cards, every single item that leaves Artcadia is an originally designed, carefully considered, expertly crafted piece of art.
Vici heads design and loves working with clients on bespoke projects. Having 13 years experience in the wedding industry, she is well practised in designing letterpress invitations and adding a bit of Artcadia beauty to special occasions around the world. She believes in the power of socially responsible design and is passionate about sustainable practices, preservation of the art of print, letterpress and classic typography. In 2018, Vici’s husband Adam joined Artcadia and heads the printing side of the business. The studio is home to two Heidelberg platen presses and a variety of other printing and finishing equipment. Artcadia offer letterpress, hot foil, embossing and digital printing. Artcadia is often noted for their personal service, hand drawn illustrations and keen eye for detail that ensures consistent paper perfection. They are faithful lovers of the historic craft of letterpress and honour the tradition of print design with a very contemporary sensibility, combining considered design with soft papers and letterpress printing.
