Photo quality prints and your pattern can repeat or appear only once, it’s up to you.
Wallcoverings fall into one of two types: vinyl or commercial grade wallpaper. Vinyl wallcoverings tend to be used for short term applications. The vinyl can be put up in a few hours and removed equally quick. The material holds ink well but does lack durability, even when laminated. Commercial grade wallpaper is much more of a semi to permanent application. Conservatively speaking, there are hundreds of different types of stock from no texture to a paper that mimics albacore plaster. Most stock sizes start at 30” and go up to 56” wide.
I just painted my walls. How long do I have to wait before we can put up a wallcovering?
In all cases, the least amount of time would be 7 days. This time allows the paint to cure. In some cases, especially with Teflon based paints, we need to test the wall prior to installation as the components that are added to paints to prevent dirt and stains from sticking to it, will prevent vinyl from adhering.
I would like to use commercial wallpaper but I don’t want the design to repeat every 48”. Is there something we can do to prevent this?
Yes. Because we print using digital technology, we can have a print that the design never repeats, or repeats as often as wanted. We can reproduce photos, artwork (with the artists approval) or anything that is wanted.
How long will commercial wallpaper last?
Very much like the wallpaper in grandma’s dining room, it can last for a very long time. The ink will not rub off and the paper is very strong. When we install it, we use a commercial paste and ensure that the edges are sealed.
