Our History

Surface print was founded in 1990, supplying high-end Interior Design companies with their wallpaper requirements. Since then we have expanded as a business and moved from Great Harwood to larger premises in Clayton-le-Moors, allowing us more printing capacity. Our new premises are just 10 minutes from where the Surface Print method was pioneered in Darwen in the 1830s. We still use this process today and are proud to be one of the only suppliers who can offer this high quality and flexible printing method.

Our Chairman, John Watson, has been in the wallpaper industry for over 50 years. His son and daughter, James and Abigail, are the 4th generation of Watsons to work in wallpaper, so they say ‘it’s in their blood’.

Surface Print, along with our customers, are responsible for bringing wallpaper back into fashion. We offer high quality and innovative technologies such as Holographic Foil, Cork, Flock, Bead and nonwoven products, all developed by our in house technical team.
