The company was founded in February 1972.
Silky looks onto the market like silk-screen printing, a microstructure dedicated above all to the production of self-adhesive advertising and industrial labels. The silk-screen printing in those years reached its peak with the print on self-adhesive PVC. In most cases, the requests included self-adhesive prints, which were then used by commercial or industrial activity such as promotional gadgets or corporate gifts for customers.
The request for the sticker “gadget” was now rooted and important in numerical terms. The demand was not limited to the promotion but ranged from the printing of technical stickers used for safety warnings, direction indications or warnings of danger, to the plates metals used for the most part on industrial machinery. With the printing of promotional and technical stickers, the company also equipped itself for printing window decals. The request came mostly from realities dealing with large retailers, who had the need to promote points of sale making them recognizable through the application of stickers on shop windows.
In 1976, with the acquisition of a logistically more suitable industrial plant, the productions diversified. In addition to screen printing on adhesive PVC, the company specialized in screen printing for the footwear and sports sector. The print solutions on products ranged from shoe uppers to details for ski boots to sports equipment in general. The clientele was made up of the major companies at national and international level due to its proximity to the footwear district of Montebelluna, world leader in sports footwear.
The printing techniques used for footwear were then also applied to the world of textiles, so it was for the company that an important phase of development began. Conspicuous investments were made for the expansion of screen printing on fabric and for the production of high definition sublimation tranfer. The internal staff went from a small group of collaborators to some tens.
This allowed to create and consolidate important collaborations with leading companies in the textile sector in the province of Treviso.
