Artile offers designers the opportunity to create bespoke ceramic wall, external cladding and swimming pool tiles using photographic images, paintings, pencil sketches, computer generated designs and many other image types. Artile products offer the performance of a standard decorated tile, are fully fade and UV resistant in full sunlight and are scratch resistant.
After we have received the artwork and the colour proof tile has been approved the artile tile design is digitally printed and applied onto the glazed tile. The tiles are then fired in our state of the art UK manufacturing plant at over 800°C to fuse the design with the glaze, resulting in a product that is fully fade / UV and scratch resistant.
With Artile your design can either be applied to a single tile, small mural or a large mural comprising many thousands of individual tiles. All murals over 1M² are supplied with a detailed keyplan which clearly identifies each individual tile by its unique reference number.
Original images can be supplied or we can create a design from your brief. Recently we have introduced designs called Fractals which are available as standard designs in a number of different sizes. We can also create Artile from paper and transparency originals or digital photographs.
Public art, information tiles or pictures of local interest can be created using Artile for underpasses and commercial areas. From store signage, feature walls, counter fronts and display settings to unique restaurant walls, frontages and open kitchen features, imaginative designs can be created.
Artile is also used for school projects where children get the opportunity to be involved in the design of tiles for their own school. Designs can be converted from paper or digital originals into ceramic artile wall tiles or murals to enhance their surroundings.
