Welcome to our ático!
Since 2005, our basecamp is an inspiring ático with a unique view on the city centre of Gheel in Belgium. We focus on short run print & cut on adhesive vinyl, but can offer a wide variety of 2D or 3D print services. In case you need digital marketing advise or support, also online we make people stick together!

"We need a lot of stickers for television props. Always short deadlines, with unusual print- & cut-specifications. This requires creative thinking rather than dull production."

Where do we come from?
The roots of àstico reside in Ronse, a Belgian urban center that took shape in the 7th century, and Ghent which became one of the largest and richest cities of northern Europe in the Middle Ages. Maybe we should start with the fact that we are really fond of comics.
All these comics moved along from Ghent to a small house in the city centre of Gheel where we settled. A house with no attic and a hole in the roof. A perfect situation to stimulate creativity and entrepreneurship. Relying on expertise in graphic arts, (digital) printing, desktop publishing and more you can read about on LinkedIn, we started building. First we made the hole in the roof bigger to install the stairs. Then we went up and started creating our àtico. From scratch.
We've put an 's' in between, to make it sound and stick better. But also because that's a lovely letter that honours the daughter of the house, like the flower that is cemented into the façade of the ground floor. On top it reminds of the asticots we used to go fishing in the early days nearby Ronse. The circle was round and ever since this attic proved to be the ideal place for new ideas to pupate and fly away. Over and over again. Check our profile to know about our current status. We're either in pupal stage or launching new initiatives.
How will we evolve?
