Flavor Paper, proprietors of scratch and sniff wallpaper, and more recently conductive wall coverings—what a place. Started in the early 2000s and known globally for its product as well as for the association with the Andy Warhol Association, who approached them to work together in 2013, their collection is an eclectic treasure trove. Focused on trail blazing trends rather than following or catering to sectors, Flavor Paper makes loud (but also delicate) and awesome offerings, seasoned with a healthy dose of humor and creative talent.
The definition of custom, Flavor Paper works with customers to make everything to order and produces everything in-house, meaning they are able to retain quality over absolutely everything. Their ability to produce everything in Brooklyn and their mix of analogue and digital printing makes them incredibly nimble and able to work on projects ranging from small to 40 foot walls of large format photography pieces. Lucky enough to tour both the analogue and the digital facility, the teams love the production here, and not resting on the aesthetic greatness, they continue to work with an evolving list of materials and techniques to produce ever more outgoing and iconic pieces.
I had an amazing experience here, and I even got to print my own design—how cool is that?! Custom color selection, and yes—that is a holographic background on the right! It was so amazing to experience just a taste of the creative opportunities in this field and just to play with some tip-top printers/designers to see how inks interacted.
Also, if you ever get the chance to visit, get the elevator up to the bathroom on the second floor—wow....
