Indoor Murals


We have been producing murals for over 10 years. Our motto is Simply Put "BIG PRINTS". We're Experts! We print all of our indoor murals on cast vinyl with a cast matte UV lamination. Murals are printed with latex inks and profiled to produce lively true to life images. We normally use a 1" overlap between panels. When installing a mural we always install from the right to the left so the eye does not pick up on the overlapped panels as easy. Installing this way makes the finished image look more refined. We install murals indoors using ladders or scissor lifts on a variety of surfaces including glass, finished stone, wallpaper and painted drywall. We always recommend testing the surface with a print sample for at least 2 weeks before printing begins. We have run into issues where vinyl does not properly adhere to the surface. We need to troubleshoot difficult to install walls before printing begins. We don't like these type of surprises and neither would you. If you are thinking a mural would be a good solution contact us for a quote and printed sample.

 

 

Outdoor Murals

 

What is different from an indoor mural and outdoor mural? Almost everything. When you include water, sunlight, exterior paints and exterior coating the job at hand changes. We understand this and provide multiple materials well suited for applications outdoors. For example indoors we use cast vinyl with cast UV lamination. This works for about 20% of our outdoor murals. Sealed concrete or painted surfaces usually require a higher tack material to grip the surface. We use a high tack vinyl with a matte UV lamination to achieve 30% of our outdoor installations. Murals are printed with latex inks and profiled to produce lively true to life images. Don't forget that window perf is popular for outdoor murals too making up 50% of the murals we produce. This unique product produces colorful images on the outside, but has a black backside that eliminates the image from the interior looking out. Your are able to see completely through the print. We offer a spray on gloss UV lamination that protects the inks and enables a clean unobstructed view from the inside. Unfortunately the only way to panel this material is by butting up the panels. Over time they will slightly separate leaving small gaps. Overlapping panels produces dark lines which is very undesirable when looking out from the inside. We normally use a 1" overlap between panels except window perf. When installing a mural we always install from the right to the left so the eye does not pick up on the overlapped panels as easy. Installing this way makes the finished image look more refined. We installed murals outdoors using ladders, scissor lifts or boom lifts on a variety of surfaces including glass, finished stone, sealed concrete or painted surfaces. We always recommend testing the surface with a print sample for at least 2 weeks before printing begins. We have run into issues where vinyl does not properly adhere to the surface. We need to troubleshoot difficult to install walls before printing begins. No surprises! If you are thinking a mural would be a good solution contact us for a quote and printed sample.

 

 

Textured Surfaces Murals

 

Okay, now on to more difficult but highly achievable textured surfaces. We're talking about rough block, unfinished concrete even stucco. Yup, rough stuff. We have solutions for this. We can print on high tack cast vinyls designed for these types of applications. We have even printed on an aluminum based product for an installation on stucco in Temecula, CA. Heat, cool, sand, rain, repeat... We know our stuff when it comes to murals. We have purchased special tools designed just for textured applications. The most important step in the process is testing the material up front to ensure there are no surprises during install. We want your mural to serve its purpose for as long as possible. No surprises! Please let us know if we can quote a textured surface job and get started on testing samples.
