Do you really build and develope the wallPen® in Germany?

Yes, absolutely. You are welcome to visit our development and production. We are located just 60 minutes east of Cologne or 90 minutes northwest of Frankfurt. Ask us for an appointment.

Up to what size can the wallPen® print?

Printing height: The vertical axis is extremely flexible as it can be extended in 10 cm increments. The lowest ceiling height for using the wallPen is 1.7 m (5 ft 6" ). After that, the axis can optionally be extended up to 4 m (13 ft) print height in 10 cm (4 in) increments.


Print width: unlimited


Due to the limitations of inkjet technology, there are margins in corners to adjacent walls, floor and ceiling. These are 6 cm (2.3″) on the left, 10 cm (3.3″) on the right, 25 cm (9.8″) on the top, and 25 cm (9.8″) on the bottom.

Which motifs can be printed?

You can print virtually any graphic, sketch, image, logo or text!

So AI, EPS, TIF, PNG, JPG, BMP files are generally no problem! With a graphics software such as "Photoshop", "Gimp" or "Affinity Photo", your motifs can be quickly and very easily prepared for printing under Windows or MacOS.

Even very small texts and colored logos next to and on doors and in hallways are possible. So the device is also an ideal signage solution for companies, schools or in hospitals, hotels, museums and many other facilities.

Even paper artwork is perfectly printable! With a simple flatbed scanner, we have already achieved fantastic results by scanning at the highest resolution. Processing and printing old originals, maps, drawings, postcards, sketches, photos or paintings work perfectly and the results are absolutely impressive. So it's just a few clicks from any paper artwork to oversized artwork o

Can the wallPen® compensate for unevenness in walls and floors?

Yes, there is a leveling system in the rear axis that compensates for surface unevenness in the floor. In addition, laser sensors are installed that detect wall unevenness of up to 10cm (3.3") in real time. The print head thus moves continuously and automatically back and forth depending on the wall surface.

Which surfaces and materials can be printed on?

We use a very resistant, plastic-like UV ink that hardens immediately under the integrated UV curing lamps and can be used on almost all substrates. Thus, plaster, wallpaper, wood, brick, latex paints, stone, clinker, plastic, metal, glass, most tiles and many other materials can be printed without any problems.

Even natural stone, clinker or rough plaster can be printed without problems up to a contour depth of approx. 10 mm.

Auch Naturstein, Klinker oder Rauhputz kann bis zu einer Konturtiefe von ca. 10 mm problemlos bedruckt werden.

How long does it take to print a motif?

The speed is - depending on the selected quality and resolution - between 1.8 and 3.6 sqm per hour.

Can I remove a wall print?

Of course! On glass with a ceramic hob scraper or razor blade. Otherwise, a print can always be painted over in two or three layers. Only on wood must be sanded or - as with metal or concrete - sandblasting or glass bead blasting.

Can I also rent the wallPen®?

Unfortunately it is not possible to rent the wallPen®.
