We have always been fascinated by paper, its smell, its precious texture … And we still are!

But the digital transition has come as a great challenge and we intend to fully take it. We are constantly updating and developing new skills to cope with an advanced technological context. Next to standard publishing and advertising products, we now offer optimised multimedia publications, dynamic websites, and social network contents.

Our customers include the major publishing houses in Italy, leading manufacturers of technological products in the automotive, household appliances, and hi-tech sectors, small and large firms in need of communicating their essence and their products effectively.

OUR STORY

1979

When It All Started

Pierangelo Berta establishes Puntografica in Turin. His firm specialises in advertising graphics, creation of logos, trademarks and coordinated items for companies and shops. Working by hand and craftsmanship skills heavily characterise these first activities.

The Eighties

New Technologies

In 1980, Puntografica purchases four photocomposition machines and the production focuses on graphic layout of newspapers and magazines. In 1985, we are the first company in Piedmont that owns the CCI photocomposition system performing automated management of huge volumes of data. Puntografica starts acquiring the leading local publishing houses as its customers and they entrust us with the layout of school textbooks and university manuals.

The Nineties

Desktop Publishing

In 1990, Puntografica invests in a new type of laser photo-unit managing text and artwork at the same time under the control of an Apple IIFX computer with Pagemaker software. This new technology marks the start of desktop publishing activities. In the second half of the decade, Puntografica opens a new business channel in the field of technical publishing. We start producing use and maintenance manuals, spare parts catalogues and repair time charts for several manufacturers of automobiles, earth moving machinery, aircraft, and large and small household appliances.

The Years 2000

A Benchmark at Local Level

The purchase of the graphic station SUN 2005 provides round-the-clock connection with the customers’ design records for the purposes of technical publishing. We start producing documentation also for companies operating in the railroad/train sector. In these years, Puntografica consolidates its benchmark position in the field of pre-press activities in Turin. At the same time, we achieve the transition to video layout using a Mac platform.

2010

Digitalisation

We witness ever increasing digitalisation of publishing contents. Next to the standard production meant for paper printing of textbooks and technical documentation, Puntografica keeps up to date and specialises in multimedia processes, products for multimedia interactive boards, online data sheets, and interactive operation manuals.

1979

L'inizio

A Torino Pierangelo Berta fonda Puntografica. Lo studio si occupa in particolare di grafica pubblicitaria, ideazione di loghi, marchi e coordinati per aziende e negozi; il lavoro ha una forte connotazione manuale e artigianale

Anni '80

Nuove tecnologie

Nel 1980 Puntografica acquista quattro macchine da fotocomposizione e la produzione è focalizzata sulla realizzazione grafica di giornali e riviste. Nel 1985, l’azienda è la prima in Piemonte a possedere il sistema di fotocomposizione CCI che permette la gestione automatizzata di grandi volumi di dati. Puntografica inizia così ad acquisire come clienti le più importanti Case Editrici del territorio, che le affidano l’impaginazione di libri scolastici e manuali universitari.

Anni '90

Desktop Publishing

Nel 1990 Puntografica investe in un nuovo tipo di fotounità Laser che, pilotata da computer Apple IIFX con software Pagemaker, può gestire testo ed immagini insieme. Questa nuova tecnologia da il via al desktop publishing. Nella seconda metà del decennio Puntografica apre una nuovo canale di business nel campo dell’editoria tecnica, iniziando a realizzare manuali d’uso e manutenzione, cataloghi parti di ricambio e tempari officina per diverse aziende produttrici di automobili, macchine movimento terra, velivoli, piccoli e grandi elettrodomestici.

Anni 2000

Il consolidamento territoriale

Con l’acquisto della stazione grafica SUN 2005 si realizza una connessione h 24 con gli archivi della progettazione del cliente nell’ambito del technical publishing. Si comincia a produrre documentazione anche per aziende operanti in campo ferroviario. Negli stessi anni si consolida la posizione di Puntografica come azienda di riferimento in Torino nel campo della prestampa editoriale, e si realizza il passaggio completo all’impaginazione a video su piattaforma Mac.

2010

Digitalizzazione

Si assiste ad una sempre maggior digitalizzazione dei contenuti editoriali: a fianco della produzione classica finalizzata alla stampa su carta dei libri scolastici e della documentazione tecnica, Puntografica segue il passo e si specializza nelle lavorazioni multimediali, prodotti per le LIM, schede online, manuali d’uso interattivi.
