HISTORY IN PILLS
MAURIZIO & GIUSEPPE
In 1986 Giuseppe Biondi and Maurizio Coppola, the founders and owners of Shock Line started a small screenprinting business in Termoli, a small sea town located on the Adriatic Coast in Central Italy.
In 1989 Giuseppe and Maurizio came across a special paper that was said would work as a transfer (as we know them today) on a Canon CLC which they had. The two immediately realized that laser color copiers could change the world of t-shirt printing. In those years Canon first, followed by Ricoh and Xerox, with their color laser copiers gave life to modern copy shops that personalized t-shirts and gadgets with color laser copiers and heat presses.
Giuseppe and Maurizio with their new company called Seriprogram started studying how to develop and produce their own transfers.
In 1991 Seriprogram produced its first transfers in Termoli. At that time Seriprogram was producing and selling pre-printed transfer for t-shirts and in 1995 Shock Line brand transfers were finally launched on the Italian market and the Shock Line Company was founded. Probably the first Italian transfer paper manufacturers.
In 2003 Shock Line started producing transfer paper in rolls for solvent inkjet plotters including the unique PS FRESCO transfer for wall decoration and the PS SOFT for natural leather printing.
In 2006 Shock Line acquires and moves into new facilities with new machines, a larger warehouse, meeting rooms for training sessions or workshops and 2 showrooms. Shock Line relies on a staff composed of 30 people in various departments: sales, customer care, administration, research and development, warehouse and production lines.
Today Shock Line is one the most renowned transfer paper producers in the world and offers an outstanding range of transfer papers including transfers for printing on fabrics, natural and artificial leather, wood and many hard surfaces such as metal, glass and ceramic. Shock Line also produces excellent waterslide decals. In recent times Shock Line has focused on “self-weeding” transfers for t-shirts.
A long and solid partnership binds Shock Line to OKI Italy and this has allowed Shock Line to produce excellent dedicated specialties that have been launched on not only the Italian and European market but in all continents.
Shock Line’s research and development staff is committed to create top quality new products and improve existing ones.
