Digital Décor installation training for large-format print providers.
Everyone in the marketplace is now aware of the growth potential of large-format digital décor, and many are scrambling for the opportunity to be that bit better, bigger, faster and smarter. Near on ten years ago, Papergraphics were one of the first companies to see the market potential of digital decor, yet only recently has it been acknowledged (even by the big OEMs) that interior décor applications represent the most significant growth potential for large-format print companies.
From the days when the concept of "digital decor" was a mere blip on the radar, Papergraphics has worked on developing unique media and honing our application and installation skills to perfection. Over the years we have supplied millions of meters of our unique Digimura and Muramour digital wallcoverings to customers across the world, and it can be seen adorning hotels, bars, restaurants, offices, hospitals and hundreds and hundreds of other public spaces!
Digital Decor is here to stay, and a market trend like this hasn’t been seen for decades. It's never too late to learn and become part of this exciting and profitable marketplace.
As pioneers in this field, our experience and expertise put us at the top of the league, and there isn’t much we don’t know about digital interior décor and digital wallcoverings. The Papergraphics training centre currently offers five courses that specifically focus on teaching you the practical and technical skills needed to break into this booming market successfully and to do so with the confidence and skill-set of a digital-décor expert:
Module 1: "Essential Digimura wallcovering application training."
This module is a single day training course that offers installers and decorators with little or no experience, an introduction to working with Digimura wallcoverings.
- Essential knowledge for "flat-wall" installation of Digimura 2.1
- Experience is not necessary for successful completion of the day
Module 2: "Advanced Digimura wallcovering application training."
This module is a more in-depth course for those who attended the "Essential Digimura application day" and are looking to expand their skills and knowledge. The emphasis of this day is on “practice, practice, practice,” and can be tailored to include any "site-specific" situation you have or maybe encountering which includes tricky architectural features.

Module 3: "The fast-track to Digimura application expertise."

This course can take your team to advanced skill level and beyond, as we also extend the principles taught in Modules 1 and 2 to include alternative application and joining methods, along with helping you to build your "toolbox" to prepare you for most situations that you may encounter.
