Hartgraph use printable wallcoverings to create a welcoming workspace for clients


Customer:   Hartgraph

Hartgraph chose Antalis’ Coala WallDesign NW Sand to add texture and depth to bespoke wallcovering for a new, creative workspace.

After moving to their purpose-built, 14,000 square foot factory in Amersham, Buckinghamshire, Hartgraph wanted to build a creative workspace for clients to visit, work and meet, and that reflected the Hartgraph business and brand.

The company – which has been offering professional print and packaging services for over 30 years and has sourced materials from Antalis throughout that time – wanted to incorporate a bespoke wall covering into the design of the workspace.  They needed a printable wall covering that would be durable and give them the quality of finish they were looking for.

The Solution

Hartgraph decided upon Coala WallDesign NW Sand, to add texture and depth to the walls and enhance the design, commenting: “The soft texture and matt finish of the Coala wallpaper was perfect for graphics that we had chosen. It offers a very natural finish and the colour has printed on it beautifully”.

Coala WallDesign NW Sand is a durable wallcovering for printers using latex, (eco-)solvent and UV curing inks.  It is suitable for a whole range of applications, including personalised murals for consumers, tailor-made and decorative wallcovering f or hotels, offices or (healthcare) institutions, to durable shop interiors or creative set design.

Its strong base material enables easier removal.

The Technique

Print:  Hartgraph used their EFI VUTEk GS3250 to print the wall covering, using their standard profile, with low curing lamp settings.

Cutting: Cut on their Zund G3200 Finishing Table – 3m x 2m

Fitting: Their qualified fitting team applied the printed Coala WallDesign NW Sand direct to the walls.  Paste was applied to the walls.

Tip: Add another dimension to your wallcoverings by adding extra layers; for example overlay or enhance areas of the image with foam board cut-outs of lettering or shapes.

The Result

Hartgraph are delighted with the result they achieved using Coala WallDesign NW Sand.  It has enabled them to create a creative workspace for their clients to visit.

“We are proud of our working environment and have found that clients are keen to visit and spend time with us.  Agencies are happy to bring clients here for meetings and press passing as the environment is one that they can be proud to be associated with.”
