We love printing and framing art.

We are third generation art makers.

We supply art to consumers, architects, designers, retailers, film producers and distributors worldwide.

Our art business lineage was started by Jack Weedn in California in 1955 when he began a small aerial photography business in Orange County (between LA acting and singing gigs). In 1959, his wife, Flavia Weedn began her lifelong career in painting and writing. Flavia and Jack began the art selling and publishing/gallery business on PCH in Laguna Beach and at the Disneyland Hotel in 1960's. In the 1980s Flavia branded goods were introduced to Switzerland by ARS Edition in Zug. By 1990 Flavia goods were stocked in more than 30,000 retail locations across the globe. The Flavia Company transformed and became Archivea GmbH in 2009 when it was established in Zug. In 2018 it was moved to Lugano. This art and film business has continued with Jack's son, Rick Weedn joining his father in 1978 and Miguel Weedn, Rick's son joining his father in 2022.

We now serve The Getty Museum, The New York Public Library, Claudio Bravo Collection, The Ford Motor Company, The Henry Ford Museums, The Boeing Company, The Vintage Arte Archive and the Flavia archive among many others.

We love history and art and pride ourselves in merging the two. Our specialty is visual story telling, archival materials and digital technologies in the production of still imagery and film.
