Founded on the Oregon coast by a guy named Ted, this small handscreened wallpaper company flourished in the Age of Aquarius.
Many years later, some young designers seeking striking wallcoverings discovered Ted‘s greatness – just days before the designs and equipment were to be destroyed. Knowing what had to be done, these young designers headed west to save Teds legacy.
Relocated to the Bywater District of New Orleans, Flavor Paper continued to print using Ted‘s traditional printing methods and vacuum table, but with greatly increased accuracy and detail.
The Flavor Lab is now located in the Boerum Hill section of Brooklyn and is home to Flavor Paper‘s design and screenprinting operations. Two re-engineered versions of Ted‘s original table are the centerpiece of the Lab and the backbone of our wallpaper printing operation. To support their hand screened printing process, the Flavor Lab houses a darkroom, screen etching equipment, and an ink room where we custom mix all of our colors. Printing becomes street art as the front windows allow pedestrians to watch the process happen in the massive overhead mirrors. The ability to print digital wall coverings was added to the Brooklyn Flavor Lab and allows us to expand our creativity beyond repeating pattern work. Huge scale murals, amazing photography, and fast-turn custom work are now pushing the definition of what wall art can be at Flavor Paper.
