Create a Wall is a digital décor printing and design company servicing the Melbourne, Australia area. The company started 12 years ago, as an owner-operator business in the window film industry. Printing was just a small part of the business at that time, but owners, Jarrod Malcolm and Leah Corn, saw growth and opportunity in large format printing and decided to purchase an HP Latex 360. From there, they took a chance and expanded into the hottest new design market—custom-designed, digitally printed wall-coverings, wall papers, posters and more. Utilizing the HP Wallart Suite software, Create A Wall was born and within a year became a profitable DIY, custom décor business.
