    I was watching Good Bones today, a home flipping show.

    At one point in the episode, the flippers went down to the wall paper store for some custom wallpaper. They picked a pattern and colors, viewed it on a monitor and while they waited the wall paper was printed on a wide format printer.

    Couldn't tell what brand of printer it was or if its a general purpose printer or a something custom for the wall paper industry.

    I know a framer who has stopped buying about 10 colours of mat boards and now prints those colours in house.
    He only prints the area needed, so the fall out is unprinted and can be used for another job.
    He can also print almost any colour to order to match the exact colour needed for an artists limited edition prints.
    With developments in Ink Jet printers, and hopefully falling prices for the ink, one can wonder whether coloured mat board will still be made
    in 2030. Or will framers stock a white board and print what they need.
    The picture is from the Bologna show 2017 where Janez a distributor from Slovenia is examining some of the ink jet printed corner samples.

    Before you ask ...:)
    It's an Epson stylus pro 9890, any wide format Epson will do though
