Born in Flemish Brabant near Brussels, Jan was in Antwerp by 1572, a centre of printmaking at the time. After becoming a master of the artist's Guild of Saint Luke and marrying in Antwerp Cathedral, he began to work for the publisher Christophe Plantin (1520-1589). Later, he worked in Germany and Italy alongside his younger brother Raphael Sadeler I.
