Inkjet Printed Wall Mural + Social Media = Immediate Sales

Printing custom wall murals for businesses and homes

Samples sell. It’s that simple. Illustrate what you can do in your studio, lobby or showroom and the application sells itself.

At least that’s what Andy Wredberg, owner of AW Artworks in Sun Prairie, Wis., has found by decorating his studio with various inkjet media applications from photo paper to canvas.

Apply wall murals on textured surfaces

Wredberg’s most recent studio sample was a large 80″ x 72″ wall mural, pictured here, that he applied using Photo Tex Repositionable Fabric from LexJet. Wredberg posted the project on Facebook and almost immediately received four inquiries. Two of those have already led to sales and Wredberg is meeting with the other two next week.

“What I posted on my Facebook page is that this type of wall mural is perfect for doing something as permanent or temporary as you want for a home or business. If you live in a rental, for instance, and you want to do something that you can easily take down, this is an excellent way to do it instead of using wallpaper,” explains Wredberg. “The walls in my shop are heavily textured, yet I was able to apply it, and it looks great. I used the 42-inch wide version and overlapped it by two inches to fill up one wall and show people who walk in that it will go over just about any wall surface.”
