Illustrative Ink took the top prize in LexJet’s Windows, Walls and Doors contest with this super-large wall mural for Hard Rock Casino in Biloxi, Miss.
The husband-and-wife team of Charles and Diana Punzo, aka Illustrative Ink, have an eye for décor and creating the perfect impression. In this case, it was time to update one of the casino’s nightclubs with appropriate graphics.
Illustrative Ink printed this wall mural on LexJet Simple WallCal (6 Mil) in nine panels with the HP Latex 260 Printer. Each panel was 54″ x 8′, except the ninth panel, which was printed at a narrower width for a total of 8′ x 38′ across the wall.
The panels were installed vertically top to bottom, overlapped and precisely seamed. Illustrative Ink used the tiling function in the ONYX RIP software to delineate the seams for a smooth and seamless application.
“It went up without a problem. We had three installers and were able to apply it in about two hours. The material is easy to position without having to stretch the image,” says Charles Punzo. “We installed it late this summer. It’s still up and everyone loves it.”
Congratulations again to Illustrative Ink for winning the top two spots in the Windows, Walls and Doors Contest. In case you haven’t seen the second- and third-place winners, here they are…
