The factory

Printing techniques

Our business includes modern machinery with traditional printing techniques such as surface print and screen print. Surface print is the old traditional way of printing wallpapers. The print is made by engraved rollers. We print wet-in-wet which gives an almost hand painted feel where colors blend into each other and creates a fascinating layer-on-layer effect. The layers of color creates a flowy feeling with irregular, intriguing and vibrant patterns. These wallpapers have a unique depth and a luster impossible to recreate with modern machines. Our surface print is capable of printing fond + 7 colors.

“To handle our old Olbrich machine requires knowledge, interest and commitment. What’s also required is a personal presence and feel for the machine, that is what guarantees the best possible craftsmanship.”

Screen print

Screen printing is a rotary print  where the color gets pressed out through small, small holes. This technique enables the creation of very precise patterns with a fine depth in the color. The screen print machine truly is one of a kind with its 5 five printing stations. In a standard production we print fond + 3 colorsand the last station adds preserving varnish. We also offer to run the print twice which makes it possible to add on even more color and patterns.

“With 30 years of experience, knowledge and personal commitment we have gotten to know all of our machines unique qualities, both their strengths and their flaws, and we master them all.”

Products facts

Our production takes place in our own factory in Ulricehamn. When printing we only use water based inks and varnishes, free of PVC, heavy metals and substances which damage the environment. No solvents other than plain water may be used in our factory, and all the waste from our production can be recycled. Surplus colors are reused in production and the energy used in the factory is climate compensated.

The material we print on is non-woven paper.

Non-woven is a mixed material consisting of synthetic fibers and mixed pulp. The combination makes the material form-resistant and easy to use. The synthetic fibers come from recycled materials such as PET bottles, and the pulp from forests with FSC certification. Non-Woven has ÖK-Tex standard 100 certification.
