Video: 3 Steps to Installing Large Tiled Wall Graphics

If you’ve got a large graphic to install on a wall, we’ve got three words for you: measure, mark and you’ll become a master. If you follow the three phases of wall graphic installations outlined in the video above, you’ll find that putting up your next tiled wall graphic can be a breeze.

When installing the massive wall mural for Scorch Fitness, the professionals at Now That’s a Wrap show us how using LexJet Simple Flo Wrap Vinyl with its self-adhesive air-egress release liner is a vital choice, making installation and repositioning easier to manage.

For any wall graphic, some of the special tools you’ll need are masking tape for registration marks, a hand-held squeegie and a release liner knife, to name a few.

LexJet Support Helps digitalMomentum Leverage Revolutionary Latex-Ink Printer

As owner of Florida print provider digitalMomentum, Marc Sitkin had successfully negotiated the changes wrought by digital technology in the ‘90s and built a successful wide-format shop that thrived in the 21st century. With roots in a 1980s Hartford, CT photo lab, Sitkin evolved the wide-format part of the business into digitalMomentum in 1999.  In 2001 he moved it to South Florida. digitalMomentum grew to become a major producer of trade-show graphics, POP displays, giclée prints, and vehicle graphics.

However in 2010, with the Florida economy in a challenging state and his Mimaki printer on its last legs, Sitkin was looking for a game changing print technology to provide a competitive edge in tough times. After researching HP’s new Designjet L25500 latex printer and seeing it at the ISA Sign Expo, Sitkin felt confident enough to make the move. Now, with several months under his belt, he credits the new printer for improving his production efficiency and jump starting the company’s competitive edge. In many cases, the new printer has provided the means for attracting new business that would not have been possible without it.

A Simple Way to Produce Durable, Kid-Friendly Wall Murals

Here’s a great example of how a LexJet customer is using Simple Flo wrap adhesive vinyl for a project other than vehicle wraps.

The Hawaii Children’s Discovery Center in Honolulu is a warm and friendly museum with hands-on instructional exhibits for children of all ages.  So when designers of a new facility at the center wanted to enliven the walls with bright, kid-friendly murals, it’s only natural that they would want materials that not only deliver ultra-vibrant colors but also extra durability and easy cleaning.

That’s why Pro Digital LLC of Honolulu, Hawaii is using LexJet Simple Flo wrap vinyl with a luster laminating film to create the murals.  Simple Flo wrap provides the opacity needed to prevent unsightly seams with overlapping panels. The repositionable adhesive on Simple Flo supports easy installation. Air-egress channels in the adhesive help prevent air bubbles and wrinkles.

Although the 2.4-mil Simple Flo wrap vinyl doesn’t disguise underlying imperfections in the wall surface as well as a WallPro textured wallcovering material would have, Pro Digital’s Bradley Igawa reports that the client is very pleased with how the installed mural looks.
