MAKING OUR WALLPAPERS

Please see details below about ordering samples and wallpaper. 

Tania J. wallpapers are printed by two different methods and all papers are indicated.

 

Wallpapers printed by hand using a screen printing method by Tania J.

  • FSC paper is used with water-based ink and is Fire Safety Standard. 

  • Water-based ink is prepared for printing and screen and paper are set up.  

  • Sustainable paper registered as FSC compliant (Forest Stewardship Council) with a clay coating is prepared. 

  • A vacuum table is used to ensure a proper print. 

  • Two printmakers stand on either side of the table and together place the screen into the paper to print.

  • Screen printing ink is poured into the well of the screen.

  • The printers pull-down on a squeegee to apply even pressure, and the ink pattern is transferred from the screen onto the wallpaper.

  • The paper is then moved to the next registration mark, and in this way, the wallpaper is printed in its entire length.

  • The wallpaper is allowed to cure, then the next colours as needed are printed onto the wallpaper in the same way.

  • The wallpaper is allowed to cure and dry fully before being inspected, rolled up, and labelled as a unique dye lot.
