I'm delighted to announce that after what felt like a very long wait for me (2 months), my wallpapers are back up for sale and available to purchase!
in mid November 2022, I drove for 5.5 hours from my home in the south of England, up north of the country to visit my new wallpaper printer.
It has been a stressful 2 months (you can read what happened here) but I am so glad to put that behind me and move into a new era where I work exclusively with this new company.
They are world class; ensuring that they only do one thing (digitally printed wallpaper) and do it the best!
They are based in the North of England and are tucked away in an industrial estate - from the outside you would not know what amazing wallpaper goodness is happening inside.
I got an wonderful tour of the factory; seeing all their digital wallpaper printers in action and I met a large number of the small team that work there. It took me back 20 years to my first textile design job, where I would work in a design studio situated on site, next to the factory floor. I had forgotten that buzz of being able to see the designs being produced.
Everyone I met was lovely, knowledgeable and extremely enthusiastic - it was a joy! I really got the feeling that everyone loved their jobs - such care was taken with each roll of wallpaper. A part from the actual printing which is completed by large format digital printers - there is so much manual work that goes on.
The machines are constantly being monitored and maintained, the designers are ensuring the designs are correct and perfect for production, and all the rolls of wallpaper are finished and packed by hand.
Ahead of my visit, I had supplied them with all my artwork. And whilst there, we printed, colour matched and I approved all of the designs for production.
Not only did my wallpapers look incredible, I got to sample new base papers and get inspired by new printing techniques and new technology.
You can now order samples for quick delivery. And the turn around time for orders of full rolls is 4-6 weeks.
As always, if you need help calculating how much wallpaper you need for your project, please do not hesitate to get in touch. I've also created a helpful guide for this too!
