Advances in digital printing technology have created a new and growing market for commercial printers, namely printing services for the home. Digital printing offers low set up costs and fast turnaround. This means that printing companies are no longer restricted to high volume commercial printing but can now supply the needs of the domestic printing market for one off prints and small runs to decorate private homes.

Digital printing services for the home provide individuals of all ages with a low cost means to decorate their living space with original personalised artwork using their own images or photographs. Although Superchrome is basically a commercial digital printing company, we can also offer printing services for the home to individuals looking for professional results at an affordable price. Among the services for the home market Superchrome can supply are:

POSTERS – Probably the earliest example of printing services for the home posters have been used for many years to decorate homes, particularly teenagers’ rooms and student accommodation. Posters for interior display are printed on matte or gloss photographic paper which can be framed or mounted on a rigid substrate.  Outdoor posters are also a cheap way to promote social community events, fundraising bazaars for local schools and small charities, etc

CANVAS PRINTS – One of the most popular printing services for the home canvas printing offers a practical alternative to mass produced pictures. It offers an easy way to create top-quality personalised unique artwork from personal photographs or digital designs. Canvas prints  are also popular as original birthday gifts for loved ones which will be treasured for many years and are a great means of commemorating a special event such as a, wedding day, new baby or anniversary

ACRYLIC PRINTS - For spectacular results with sharp, brilliant images that have a glorious luminance and a gleaming surface, the high definition reproduction of acrylic prints surpasses anything that can be produced on paper. Not surprisingly, acrylic prints are becoming the preferred format in contemporary interior design for displaying images in luxury homes

DIGITAL WALLPAPERDigital wallpaper printing on Phototex is a revolutionary technique that enables the production of custom wallpaper using digital printing technology from almost any image or photograph. This is one of the latest printing services for the home, offering a realistic alternative to the mass produced and often overpriced so-called designer wallpaper endorsed by celebrities. Superchrome’s digital wallpaper may be applied to any non-porous surface including painted walls, doors and glass and will not warp or stretch.
