New tools help print service providers and wallcovering manufacturers deliver high-value wall decoration applications
FRANKFURT, Germany – Today at Heimtextil 2014, HP expanded its digital printing solution for wall decorations, helping print service providers (PSPs) and wallcovering manufacturers capture new revenue with high-value wall décor applications for commercial, retail and residential spaces.
The HP digital printing solution consists of a modular range of design software, media, HP Latex Printing Technology, finishing options and industry certifications. This scalable solution enables customers ranging from small PSPs to large wallcovering manufacturers to take the growing customization trend to the wall with unique or short-run wallpapers, wallcoverings, wall murals and canvas prints.
At Heimtextil in Hall 4.2, stand E.81, HP will demonstrate the expanded suite, including new content, design and mobility features for HP WallArt(1) as well as updated finishing and media options. A digital wall décor showroom created by renowned industrial and interior designerMarkus Benesch will bring to life the creativity and innovation made possible with digital printing and the complete HP solution.
“My goal is to encourage spectators to think outside of the box and see the unusual ways in which digital printing can dramatically alter a space, as well as the design workflow,” said Markus Benesch, owner, Markus Benesch Creates. “HP digital printing technologies create a world where designers no longer need to print large batches of wall décor at once, but where they can be fast as light, moving immediately from idea to design to production to delivery.”
New décor offerings provide a competitive edge
HP WallArt is an easy-to-use, cloud-based web service that helps simplify the design, visualization and production of customized wallcoverings. Introduced at Heimtextil 2013, the tool is already in use by more than 1,100 customers in 66 countries.(2) Following this successful trial, HP WallArt will remain free for new and existing HP Latex Printing Technology customers.
