Since 1895, over a century, York Wallcoverings has been manufacturing wallpaper from the same factory location in the historic and picturesque Susquehanna Valley of Pennsylvania. Today, York is the oldest and largest wallcovering manufacturer in the United States, creating residential wallpaper, commercial wallcoverings and wall decals that can be found worldwide.
The company’s original 100-year-old surface presses continue to produce beautiful, distinctive document designs alongside the newest state-of-the-art printing presses. And although some of the printing technology has changed over the past century, the pride and craftsmanship that existed back then still endures throughout this historic company.
York is one of the only printing companies in the world to own and operate five different types of printing presses – from some of the oldest and rarest to some of the most modern.
Each type of press gives a distinctive look to the finished product. The oldest of York’s presses dates back to the turn of the 19th century and is able to produce a beautiful painterly effect that cannot be duplicated by modern presses. Maintaining these presses and the craft of using them is held in the highest regard by all at York.
