Vescom recognizes the value that customization can add to today’s international contract interiors. That’s why we offer architects and designers bespoke material solutions, including digital printing for wallcovering. Solutions that provide the perfect fit, like a handmade glove. Our digitally printed wallcovering can fulfil a need that’s poetic or practical – or both. It can add character and individuality to interiors, tell a unique spatial story, or provide an integrated method of wayfinding. It can embed branding within the interior architecture, determine the mood of an entire space, or provide a feature accent within a spatial scheme.
Available in an array of different structured surfaces and small and wide widths, Vescom Wallcovering+Print accommodates any and every look and feel. Whatever imagery architects and designers bring to the table to fit in with their creative concept – realistic or abstract, of a pattern or material, or even text-based – our expert design team will translate it into a wallcovering of the perfect size and quality, in no time at all.

What style of imagery is suitable for Wallcovering+Print? Get as creative as you like because any look is possible. Whatever architects and designers bring to the table to fit in with their creative concept, Vescom’s expert design team will ensure that their two-dimensional imagery can come to life in a three-dimensional space.
Whether architects and designers provide us with imagery that’s realistic or abstract, of a pattern or material, or even text-based, we will translate it into a wallcovering of the perfect size and quality.
Imagine the difference between printing an image of distressed concrete on flat versus textured vinyl. Pairing your choice of image with the right base surface has a huge impact on the end result: certain material structures can add extra depth and tactility to the surface, creating a more dynamic look and feel in an interior.
Whatever we make at Vescom, the material comes first. Our integrated approach to combining our materials with digitally printed imagery creates something truly unique. The application of colours intensifies the appearance of our material structures, producing extra depth and dynamism.
All of our printable surfaces are made from high-performance materials. The majority is made from vinyl with a non-woven backing, with the exception of Porak+Print. With a list of seemingly endless advantages, Vescom’s vinyl wallcovering is an attractive yet incredibly durable solution to meet strict international contract market standards.
Available in an array of different structured surfaces, our digitally printed vinyl wallcovering is suitable for a multitude of applications and atmospheres, and can be seamlessly applied. Not only that, but it’s also flame retardant and light- and colourfast. Easy to install and maintain, vinyl is the ideal solution for environments that require extra protection against stains and intense cleaning.
Thanks to their various textures, all of our printable surfaces interact with imagery in their own unique way. To help architects and designers make the right choice, we offer a free mini-swatch fan, a compact tool that presents all printable Vescom surfaces both with and without imagery so they can see the difference. By also featuring different types of imagery – photographic and abstract, as well as various textures, materials and colours – we demonstrate not only how each affects the end result, but also that any image style really is possible.
While most of our wallcovering options come in widths of 134 cm, Langor+Print and Porak+Print are much wider. They have a width of 320 cm. These wider options can be railroaded and then installed by qualified experts to provide a cost-effective floor-to-ceiling wallcovering. This is extremely beneficial for digitally printed wallcovering, making it possible to achieve a seamless, uninterrupted image from left to right.
Langor+Print has a width of 320 cm, producing a printable surface of 315 cm. Once railroaded, this product can be used on ceiling heights of +/- 305 cm across a maximum width of 30 m. Langor+Print is a vinyl wallcovering. The product passes the flame retardancy EN 13501, B s2 d0.
Porak+Print is a non-vinyl sustainable surface that incorporates 40 per cent recycled polyester and is coated on both sides with acrylate. The product passes the flame retardancy test EN 13501, B s2 d0. Porak+Print has a width of 320 cm, producing a printable surface of 315 cm. Once railroaded, this product can be used on ceiling heights of +/- 305 cm across a maximum width of 30 m.
Popular bestsellers from Vescom’s standard wallcovering collection such as Melvin and Kilby can be customized through digital printing. This option gives architects and designers the advantage of being able to combine personalized printed areas with non-printed wall sections – all with the same product.
Picture a hotel room, for example. All of the walls could feature the same wallcovering, but accent imagery can be printed on the space above the bed. What’s more, our advanced printing process ensures the inks stand out and stay bright.
For technical reasons, metallic and high-embossment surfaces are excluded from this offer. Vescom’s design team is on hand to advise on an image’s suitability for printing on wallcovering from our standard collection. Our standard wallcovering collection designs come in widths of 130 cm. This means that the printable surface becomes 128 cm.
Made in our own on-site manufacturing facilities, Vescom Wallcovering+Print is designed specifically to meet strict international contract market standards. Suitable for hospitality, care, education, retail and recreation projects, Vescom’s wallcovering is strong, durable, flame retardant, and light- and colourfast.
It used to be that you would wake up in a hotel room that looked exactly the same no matter where you were on the planet. But in recent years, the focus has shifted from uniformity to authenticity. Even globalized brands are tasking designers and architects with capturing more unique experiences within their hotels and restaurants. Just like tasting the local cuisine and seeing the local sites, customized wallcovering can serve as a window into a hospitality project’s specific location and story, something you won’t find the world over.
Creative, customized wallcovering shouldn’t be limited to the land. Think of cruise ships: giant floating playgrounds where inspiration and imagination can run wild. Vescom Wallcovering+Print can enhance the onboard experience, vividly conveying a vessel’s theme, brand or both. Strict standards set by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) mandate which materials are allowed to be used on board. Only products that receive IMO certification – meaning they pass the most stringent of testing procedures – can be safely used aboard waterborne vessels.
Our digitally printed wallcovering can fulfil the IMO flame retardant standards for the shipping industry, making it suitable for cruise ships, ferries and offshore platforms. This applies to our smaller-width Wallcovering+Print options and therefore includes: Tica+Print, Lay+Print, Delta+Print, Sagra+Print, Colour Choice+Print and Bely+Print.
Branding and retail go hand in hand. Digitally printed wallcovering makes it possible to intrinsically weave a brand’s identity into a space rather than apply it as a superficial layer. Specific colours, logos, text and other distinguishing elements can therefore become part of the architecture instead of an afterthought, helping to create an immersive brand experience. The ease of installation of Vescom Wallcovering+Print – as well as our swift production time – makes it an exceptionally convenient and fitting solution for retail’s evolving nature.
Educational interiors are changing with the times, substituting institutional codes for more fun and informality. Customized wallcovering can add personality and character to education spaces of every type and for all ages, from day care centres, kindergartens and primary schools through to high schools, universities and ongoing-education facilities. Imagery can reflect a specific user group, curriculum or department – or simply provide an aesthetic attraction.
A trip to a care facility can be anxiety-inducing enough, let alone when you don’t know where you are or where you’re going. Customized wallcovering provides an ideal and integrated solution for wayfinding in such spaces, whether it’s through graphics, colour, text – or all of the above. Digitally printed wallcovering can also foster a calming, inspiring and comfortable ambience to support the wellbeing of those in hospitals and aged-care facilities. Images of nature, for example, can contribute to patients’ physical and mental health, while hand-drawn imagery can add a much-needed human touch.
Digitally printed wallcovering helps to determine the mood of sports and wellness spaces. Bring the outdoors in with images of nature, incorporate motivational quotes, create a high-octane environment with bold graphics or a calming space with soothing motifs. Sports facilities must also undergo regular and rigorous cleaning, and Vescom’s durable vinyl wallcovering is fit for the task. To take hygiene to the next level, Wallcovering+Print can be combined with Vescom Protect, a disinfectable product solution that stands up to aggressive chemicals.
In a market-first innovation, architects and designers now have the option to combine a creative, customized wallcovering with Vescom Protect, a highly stain resistant and easy-to-clean solution. Within our hygiene-vigilant climate, there’s a real and growing need for Vescom Protect – the perfect choice for environments that require periodic intensive cleaning, such as hospitality projects, public buildings, and wellness/sport and care facilities.
The protective film has a high chemical resistance against common household cleaners and disinfectants – and even against many aggressive chemicals, such as alcohols, solvents, bleaching agents, acids and bases.
The film prevents these aggressive chemicals from degrading the print and structure, thereby maintaining the wallcovering’s aesthetic value – even under harsh conditions. Vescom Protect also passes the highest standards for wallcovering, including its level of flame retardancy.
We offer Tica+Print+Protect, Bely+Print+Protect and Colour Choice+Print+Protect.
Vescom does much more than simply print images onto materials. Our expert design team translates imagery into a fully functioning wallcovering of the perfect size, colour and quality.
We assess everything from the best method of printing to the most cost-effective use of materials to how to install the end result. Our team will advise architects on the best customized solutions for their projects, helping them to integrate them into their building plans, as well as providing support throughout the entire process.
Vescom’s combination of expertly trained staff, advanced printers and state-of-the-art technologies ensures the highest quality results. Our digitally printed wallcovering is durable, flame retardant and light- and colourfast.
Not only do we offer a multitude of different printing possibilities on both small and large widths, but we also debunk the idea that ‘customized’ means ‘time consuming’. With an abundance of printers at the ready, we have the capacity to deliver an extremely high-speed service.
