The handful of York workers who made wallpapers with a few printing presses in 1895 would be proud to know that today their factory creates wallpapers for people all over the U.S. and in 50 countries the world over.

The Warner Company was founded in 1933. It started as one paint store located on Madison Street in Forest Park, Illinois. From there George Warner Sr. expanded the company to 12 paint stores along with the distribution of wallcoverings. Eventually the paint stores were sold and the concentration was put into the distribution and converting of fine wallcoverings and borders.
