Wallcoverings is a rapidly growing business within the interior design world. Whether it’s wallpaper, murals, and other large-scale décor elements, they all represent a piece in the exploding global market of wallcoverings. One of the biggest drivers of this growth is the transition from traditional to digital printing. Digital printing shifts the focus from large production runs of standardized designs and small profit margins to short runs of unique products with much larger profit margins.
Customization is the new standard
Another driver is the trend toward the personalization of various interior décor products such as pillows, blankets, draperies, wallpaper, and more. There’s an increasing demand for exclusive and personalized products for interior decoration, both for personal spaces as well as in business environments. These avenues present fantastic growth opportunities to expand your printing business.
Quality is key
However, one thing is crucial in this market: Quality. When choosing a printer for the job, you want to focus on quality, speed, and versatility. The Canon Colorado 1650 printer with UVgel technology is a perfect fit for this market. The printer consists of a technology that delivers industry certified GreenGuard Gold prints that combine a rich color gamut with a velvety matte finish, which is preferred by many interior décor specialists. Prints are instantly dry, ready for finishing, and are incredibly robust.
Choosing an Integrated System
To make it easier to produce high-volume wallcovering applications, print service providers should look for a fully integrated system.
The Colorado UVgel Wallpaper Factory has been introduced, which includes the Colorado printer series with finishing solutions from Fotoba. It’s designed for high volume throughput, resulting in beautiful, repeatable color quality, with all the efficiencies of automated production.
If wallcoverings are something your printing business is ready to explore, you want a system that eliminates any extra manual operation. Adding a new offering for current and potential clients brings challenges of its own, which is why you want to look for a system that offers full automation. Boost your print volumes while maximizing profit and creating a stronger bottom line.
