Flavor Paper is known for creating conversational handscreened and digital wallpaper that flips tradition on its head. Since we opened up shop in 2003, our off-the-wall vision and passion for pushing the innovation envelope with unexpected materials and new technology— cue holographic and ponyskin grounds, scratch-and-sniff scents, Day-Glo and invisible inks, and more—has garnered awards worldwide. Our modus operandi, if it isn’t perfectly clear: Explore all boundaries of conventional wallcovering design...and then break them.
The Origins of FlavorTo say that Flavor Paper's history is storied is an understatement! Originally founded on the Oregon coast by a guy named Ted, the small handscreened wallpaper company flourished in the Age of Aquarius. Many years later, some young designers seeking striking wallcoverings discovered Ted's greatness - just days before the designs and equipment were to be destroyed. Knowing what had to be done, they headed west to save Ted's legacy...and here we are! Click through to get the whole scoop.
Printing ProcessesFlavor Paper produces wallpaper by handscreened and digital printing; sometimes both for special projects. In either case we use water-based inks (latex or eco-solvent) to be as green as possible, and only the finest ground substrates with eco-friendly materials available for both processes. All Flavor Paper is tailor-made, so you're free to interchange colors and grounds with handscreened wallpaper; you can play around with scale and colors for digital designs. It's your world. Get what you want! Scope out this section to learn how we put the Flavor in our paper.

While many of our wallpapers are full-on Flavor Paper concoctions, we proudly partner with celebrated artists and organizations to realize unique conceptual environments—including the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, which granted us the exclusive rights to Warhol’s masterpieces in 2013 to bring his magic to life in the form of wallpaper. We’re also all about stretching clients’ abilities to develop interior stories that are 100% seasoned to their taste, and offer the freedom to customize our patterns, or explore off-menu murals or smaller-scale prints. It’s this unconventional, carte blanche approach that attracts adventurous residential and commercial customers around the globe, as well as landed our wallcoverings permanent placement in collections at the Brooklyn Museum, Musée des Arts Décoratifs and Smithsonian Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. Whatever your Flavor, we’re here and happy to help bring your vision to the wall!
P.S. All of our wallcoverings are eco-friendly and made-to-order.
