Since 1958

Printing character

SYL was founded by Francisco Segarra Estampa and his wife, Ysabel Alegre, in 1958. A small type shop on a small property in Barcelona. From typography to offset. From printing to gathering and bookbinding. From bookbinding to stamping and die-cutting. And from die-cutting to creating and producing books and graphic works that no one else in the world is capable of. It is what we call Integrated Printing Process.
And now, over 50 years later and in the age of the Internet, we are more than a hundred employees, we make use of the latest technology, and we compete in the most demanding international markets.
All the while maintaining our tradition of excellence and love of the craft, from the printing itself to the final completed piece.

Integrated Printing Process

Integrated Printing Process

Save Costs. Avoid Mistakes. Improve Quality

SYL handles the entire production process internally - without subcontracting with third parties - from the design and layout to the final delivery. Thanks to the latest technology in all pre-press areas, CTP, printing, bookbinding, stamping, die-cutting and finishing, you can rely on an absolute guarantee - as you will see - that your product is made in just one company. Obviously, this saves costs, avoids errors, and makes for the highest quality. But to verify this for yourself, call us. A website, you know, it’s just a website..

Our facilities

SYL’s facilities cover 5,000 square meters in a modern and functional building, employing the latest Graphic Arts technology. We are only ten minutes from the airport and fifteen minutes from downtown Barcelona.
