John Mark Ltd is the UK’s leading wallpaper manufacturer specialising in digitally printed, high-end wallcoverings. We manufacture for prestigious brands such as Osborne and Little, Cole and Son, Romo, Designers Guild, etc. We also are keen to encourage smaller wallpaper businesses and new designers by offering a service that allows multiple patterns to be produced across short runs of just 10 rolls, this being our minimum order.
John Mark is a fourth generation wallpaper manufacturer who recognised the potential in higher volume digital printing machinery right at the beginning of its development and has worked closely with Hewlett Packard and AVA, he has become the leading manufacturer in his chosen market place.
AVA software is an essential tool in the world of wallpaper and John Mark Ltd made the investment in the software from the beginning / outset of the business in July 2012.
We use AVA to both drive the HP presses and to fix repeating pattern issues from client supplied files. As a trade printer we do not have our own collection and as such do not use AVA for pattern design, however; our clients do! – It is our preferred file format when receiving artwork from our clients.
We cannot imagine life without AVA software! It is an essential part of our production process for speed and accuracy which leads to increased profitability!
Regular updates to the software are reassuring and stable. It is good to know that AVA is a constantly developing the program in this ever changing industry.
AVA’s service and support is second to none / outstanding. Two members of our team recently attended a two day training course at the AVA offices in Macclesfield with a view to extending the knowledge for one and training for the other (with no AVA knowledge at all). Both expressing great satisfaction of the training received and their extended skills are now an added benefit to our company.
John Mark Ltd would recommend anyone involved in repeat pattern to invest in AVA software.
