Offices can be boring. In fact, they usually are boring. Adam Zimmerman, owner of Z2 Technologies, West Long Branch, N.J., recently elevated his brother Jeff’s office space in both altitude and attitude for a welcome office makeover.
Adam and Jeff are avid skiers and usually make an annual trip to Vail, Colo. Adam photographed Jeff as he began to make his way down one of Vail’s double-black mogul runs on a snowy powder day in April.
The shot was perfect for a large wall mural and Adam found the solution to reproduce the photo with LexJet’s new Print-N-Stick Fabric.
“My rep at LexJet, Michael Clementi, recommended the adhesive-backed fabric, so I did a test print 44″ tall by 60″ wide to see what it would it would look like. We were a little nervous about blowing it up that large given the resolution, but it looks great. Up close, it looks like a painting, but the farther you stand away from it the more detailed it is. The print quality exceeded my expectations,” says Adam.
The image was printed on Print-N-Stick Fabric with a Canon iPF8300 and applied in panels.
“The oils on your fingers can leave smudge marks so to ensure a clean look we’ll use a seam roller next time,” says Adam (you can also use Sunset Gloss Coating or Sunset Satin Coating to protect a wall mural from fingerprints and smudges). “This was a great test for us since we’ve never installed a large wall mural. Now we feel confident that we can sell it as one of our product offerings.”
