At Design Pool, digital printing fascinates us. Sure, it’s cool. More importantly, it also has the ability to completely change the traditional supply chain. Our business model was built with this change in mind. Design Pool makes it easy for printers to use our library of over 600 designs to customize any material or product. This technology, once reserved for big projects with big budgets, is now affordable and accessible. Today, we get so excited about the opportunities this technology allows interior designers and architects to customize any client’s projects.
