Since 1929, TECNOCARTA has been transforming its passion into top quality special paper.

Our almost 90-year-old passion for paper translates into the accurate manufacturing of a large product family that brings chart paper and tickets together.
Medical and industrial paper charts have been our core activity for many decades, so we take great care of their converting process and the quality of their accessories. Paper size, colour and packaging can be therefore customised according to individual specifications and branding requirements.
Personalisation is no extra option to us, but rather an inborn mindset. Designing the product with the Customer, helping him choose the most suitable materials and printing technique as well as the best technological equipment belong to our daily work, as we believe that standard is no good standard at all.

This is particularly true when it comes to ticket manufacturing, which is the ultimate customisation challenge. Event, transport, parking, lottery & VLT, queue management and ATB tickets, as well as bag tags, require a great deal of creativity, security and integrated technology: we are able to combine all these features to set up the best version of the Customer's idea, just like a paper atelier.
Be it small or large quantities, we strive to achieve true product uniqueness through complete dedication and high responsiveness to the Client's inputs, which we believe to be our greatest strength.

Our History


Two brothers, Silvio and Guido Patellani, set up Tecnocarta selling notebooks and stationery. Production starts soon when Guido has the insight of printing charts for process recorders and paper measuring tapes for fabric.

Our History


Giorgio, Silvio and Guido's nephew, and his wife Mirella take the helm starting the Company's long process of internationalization. By then, production has already fully shifted to industrial and medical charts: Tecnocarta is the first Italian chart manufacturer.

Our History


Tecnocarta becomes sole Italian agent of the German company DIA-Nielsen GmbH for the distribution of innovative industrial marking systems as strategic complements to its industrial charts.

Our History


Giorgio and Mirella exhibit at international fairs all over the world and obtain the UNI EN ISO 9001 certification.

Our History


Elena, Giorgio's daughter, and her husband Stefano take over, starting to look for alternative fields of application without ever forgetting the Company's roots.

Our History

Our History


Tecnocarta keeps on fostering innovation through the expansion of its product portfolio and a radical image and communication renewal. As shown by its history, reinventing itself has always been in Tecnocarta's blood. Three generations, many printing machines and countless paper rolls have passed, but a fundamental idea still underlies the company: paper can only be ripped up by opposition to change. This is the reason why we never stopped questioning ourselves and sharpening our skills, moving forward to the next challenge.
