For example, many pro photographers now sell custom photography to businesses that want add a touch of local flavor to their interior décor. Recently, photographer Norman Gilbert sent us this shot that shows him standing in front of an 80 x 120-in. mural in the entranceway to The Tower Room Restaurant on the top floor of the tallest building in Memphis (which is 33 stories high).
The mural is a composite of 14 photos Gilbert shot from the Tower Room. Starting with a dramatic look downward toward the street in broad daylight, the mural transitions through street scenes shot at twilight and culminates with a view of the Memphis skyline at night.
Gilbert printed the composite file in three 40 x 80 in. sections onto WallPro inkjet-printable wallpaper from LexJet. WallPro is an11-mil, commercial-grade, latex-saturated, nylon-reinforced wallpaper.
To print this job, Gilbert used ImagePrint RIP software with his Epson Stylus Pro 9600. After a protective spray was applied to the printed panels, the mural was installed by professional wallpaper hangers using traditional wallpaper paste.
WallPro is just one option for inkjet-printing wall murals. Many photographers now use Photo Tex PSA Fabric for photo murals, because the goof-proof repositionable adhesive on the back makes it possible for anyone to install wall murals. No special training is required.
