Printodeco video is up

Since November the 14th, the video of Printodeco is available at YouTube. The collaboration of all partners, and especially through the effort of Torculo and Seistag, made possible the video.

The video was recorded in summer 2018. It demonstrates the achievements of the Partnership of Printodeco Project. This is a collaborative project among four Spanish Companies. The project focused on reducing time to market of design products enabling enhanced possibilities for customization to the customers.

The video shows the way in which a designer can define a decorative pattern and, in just 48 hours, that design becomes a piece of furniture. This is possible thanks to the collaboration of technicians, printers, board makers and furniture makers. In order to make it happen, different resources are needed:

One of the tools is the catalog of ready to print designs. It is a printed booklet, but also a website which enables changing many parameters to the default images. By means of this, the customization possibilities are countless and the designer is not forced to start from scratch.

A second tool is a workflow, which compromises the whole Consortium. It ensures the quality of the images and also of the printing process. Special inks and papers are used and everything is done under special codes to ensure that the paper will fit the boards.

Thanks to the above-mentioned tools, making melamine boards and furniture with the printed paper is a standard process with no extra costs. Thanks to this, the offer of Printodeco can be cost-effective and therefore competitive in a huge market.


PRINTODECO partners present a book showing the advances of the Project. It was printed on September 2017 in full colour, with 77 pages and 43 pictures. The new book includes the project explanation, the presentation of the companies and news on the Project evolution from April 2016 to July 20017. It resumes the execution of Project during this period.

The book describes four Spanish Companies which participate in PRINTODECO Project: TORCULO, SEISTAG, LOSAN and LOGISIETE. The publication resumes the work done during first period of the Project, starting from the management of coordination of effort amount all the partners to ensure the effective operation of the project and ending the dissemination and the exploitation of project results.

The book includes the information about 17 project meetings and shows PRINTODECO results in the field of image customization and colour management. It also deals with trends and international market opportunities. Finally, the publication of PRINTODECO project describes the possibilities to innovate in terms of surface design.

The book will be presented at Brussels meeting to be held on 19th of October 2017. This is a meeting within COSME networking event, which is focused on “teaming up for success”.

Customization website

The website for design customization was published in august 2017. This milestone has been reached punctually according to PRINTODECO Project work plan. It refers to deliverable D-2.3. The website offers three different tools for design customization:

  • The first one is called «be briant!«and it allows changing hue, saturation and brightness to a large selection of high quality patterns.
  • The second one is «go further!«. It makes possible to blend any colour over many different patterns provided by the website.
  • The last one is «customize!«. It has no limits as it allows to upload images and merge then over exiting patterns.

All the tools provided by the new website run over a list of high quality and large dimensions catalogue of designs. Those images are ready to be customized by the customer who just have to select the colour and tone he likes.

The website also provides a personal area to the customer. By means of this area, the user can design and store his creations. In order to reach the personal area, the customer should log in previously. Therefore, he should just provide an email address and verify not being a robot.



The new catalogue of PRINTODECO designs is ready. This new edition includes personalization tools. It makes possible matching industrial products with final customer needs and likes. Moreover, it also makes possible to define exclusive designs and give protagonism to the customer who can define the product directly.

By the moment, the customization tools are offered throughout a catalogue. This means that the customer already has the customization possibilities, but using special software and knowledge is needed. Within the next month’s PRINTODECO will offer that support online, by means of a tool that allows direct customization by the final customer.

The personalization possibilities are based on three different tools to be explained in detail within the next weeks. The first one makes possible to adjust existing patterns by changing Hue, Saturation and Brightness. The second allows to combine a catalogue of textures with any colour to produce new surface designs. The third one blends a catalogue prefab images with images uploaded by the final customer.
