The company produces home accessories at its 1,500m2 facility in Berlin, exclusively using digital technology.

Remember photography? Back in the eighties Martin Thompson was in the darkrooms of the Royal College of Art, carefully agitating a tray of developer, patiently waiting for an image to appear on a blank sheet of photographic paper. A stop bath, a fix and a wash later, he would usually shuffle back to the enlarger to try again. “I was never satisfied with a ‘straight’ photograph” says Martin, “it just wasn’t enough. I was experimenting with multiple exposures, dodging, burning, toning and painting on my photographs. I was trying anything. It was a bit hit and miss in those days”. The work he did produce was good enough to be used by eighties style magazines ‘The Face’ and ‘Blitz’ but in the darkroom the possibilities were limited. Then everything went digital. Suddenly the possibilities were endless.

Grafityp has recently added FIVE wall decoration films to their range of Grafiprint media, that is two monomeric films, two structured polymeric films and one cast film. All of them can be applied directly onto painted walls, plasterboards, etc. Cast films are even suited to be applied onto brick or concrete walls.

18 presentations on the technical track and 10 more on the creative track provide for an intense learning and networking agenda during the 2nd edition of the Printed Interior Decoration (PID) conference which takes place on 5-6 June 2018 at the Radisson Blu Scandinavia hotel in Düsseldorf. Participants will witness the latest printing technologies for home textiles, wallpapers, laminated floorings, wooden panels, carpets, building and mobile interiors.

NESCHEN Coating, the specialist for modern self-adhesive products and high-quality coated media, supplements its range with the new product solvoprint® power-tack 180. Solvoprint® easy fix 180 MSP's extremely popular 180 µm film and the strong adhesive innovation of solvoprint® performance wall-grip provide the advantages of the new product.
