Custom Patterns and Reproductions We offer a multitude of patterns and options with our standard wallpaper collections at the Detroit Wallpaper Co. Should you need something very specific we are still here to help. We can create a unique pattern and colorway for you on spec or use your own sketches as inspiration to create exactly what you are looking for.
We can also use out of print designs to recreate something no longer available. Please send us a cutting that comprises a complete repeat and we will do the rest. We are usually able to achieve a very close reproduction that is almost indistinguishable from the original. The only limitation we have is with the digital printing process itself. We cannot produce metallic, flocked or embossed design elements. We can make what was once old new and improved though.
Photographic Wall Murals Large photo murals can be transformative for any space. Almost any image can be turned into a wall mural with a few exceptions. The most important thing to keep in mind is that we must start with a quality high resolution digital photo file if you want the final enlargement to be clear and crisp. We can also start with an original photographic print which we then scan into the computer with our state of the art large-format scanner. Once we have a quality high resolution digital file we can then crop the artwork to the final dimensions and proportions of the wall and even create a digital mockup on a photo of the final installation location for proofing and approval reasons. If you don’t have an image of your own, or your source art is not of high enough quality or maybe you just have a concept for your mural we can source an image from a wholesaler we already have a relationship with.
Custom Designed Murals The words custom and bespoke generally mean the same thing but bespoke also refers to being a commissioned design prepared by an artisan. We at The Detroit Wallpaper Company have been creating one-of-a-kind bespoke murals for clients since our beginning in 2004 when we were working under the name Greatwall Custom Coverings. We have been employing the computer as well as classic artistic techniques to generate murals that are made specifically for any given project. Generally we use the client’s source material, artistic inspiration or even a corporate logo as a jumping off point for the final design. Large photographic wall murals have also been a large part of this type of work for us. We can source the image for you or create it from scratch. When talking about very large murals the artwork has to be of high enough quality to reproduce at the inflated scales we are generally working with.
Some examples of things we’ve done in the past would be large photographic murals in color or black and white, turning maps into wallpaper, creating a trompe l’oiel effect to transport the viewer, collages of images, large abstract designs and even museum installations. The only limits to this process would be the imagination. We love a good challenge. Contact our office and let us help you with your passion project.
