What is a Wall Graphics?

A vinyl wall graphic is a kind of adhesive sign made of a thin vinyl sheet. Vinyl is a plastic-like material. It’s the same material that is used for car wraps, which means that it is tough, scratch-resistant, and durable outdoors signs as well as indoors signs.

Wall graphics can be easily applied to various wall surfaces. They are also removable for when you want to take them down. They can be used for seasonal and temporary promotions or as a permanent fixture on your wall. . You can personalize your office signs or home with vinyl wall lettering.

TYPES OF WALL GRAPHICS

  • CONCRETE & BRICK WALL GRAPHICS: Even rough and porous surfaces can be used to display stunning graphic symbols, lettering, and images. Vinyl is the usual material for indoor use, applied with a heat gun, so the mural or decal conforms easily.
  • PERFORATED WINDOW GRAPHICS: These provide an opaque, bright image when viewed from the outside but are transparent from the inside. They are perfect for offices where privacy is essential or shop fronts where it’s not desirable to be able to see inside.
  • DRYWALL GRAPHICS: You can transform the appearance of a bland expanse of drywall with a mural or brand graphic. Matt vinyl is the usually preferred material to avoid loss of visibility due to glare.
  • VINYL WALL WRAPS: A general term used for large vinyl wall graphics. They can depict many things; for example, people, cityscapes, and landscapes, or they can provide informational text and graphics.
  • VINYL STICKERS: Another name for vinyl decals. They can be produced with a gloss or matt finish and usually have an adhesive backing, though sometimes static cling stickers are used for easier removal.
  • BLOCK CUT VINYL: Block-cut vinyl is available in multiple finishes, including mirrored and glitter. It refers to shape or letter cut-outs, commonly used to form a larger graphic.
  • VINYL DECALS: Another name for vinyl stickers.

MILWAUKEE CUSTOM WALL DECALS & GRAPHICS DESIGN & PRINTING

We offer custom wall graphics, which means the options available to you are practically endless. By incorporating different designs or techniques, we’ll be able to create a sign specifically for you. Some of the important design elements you’ll want to think about when creating a design with us include:

  • Shape:Your graphic may need to fit around existing wall features. You can also be creative with shapes to create certain impressions. Wall graphics can be shaped to resemble objects with great effect.
  • Size: Text that is too small for the available space (or too large) or difficult to read from a normal viewing distance is not desirable. 
  • Color: If your wall graphic is used for branding, you’ll want to make sure it is perfectly color matched; otherwise, it will look “off.” Also, colors should be chosen carefully to invoke the desired mood.
  • Pattern: Similarly to colors, patterns should be chosen to give the desired impression. Which works best for the image you are trying to convey: strong, angular lines, or soft, flowing ones?
  • Graphic: As with lettering, graphics must be sized correctly. They should also suit the corporate image.
  • Font: Are you trying to give the appearance of strength and stability? Trustworthiness? Care and compassion? Fun? Font selection can convey varying messages without saying a word.

While most wall graphics are opaque and have color printed on them, you can also use graphics that allow you to see through them from one direction, or you can use semi-transparent vinyl sheets. Those can add privacy to spaces but allow natural light through. These are especially useful as office wall graphics for businesses where clients may want privacy.

Uses for Wall Graphics

You can use wall graphics for many purposes:

  • Add branding to your office, lobby signs, or other spaces.
  • Create a pleasant atmosphere for your clients to enjoy.
  • Communicate essential information, especially on doors and entrances.
  • Offer wayfinding information to guests.
  • And more. 
Wall graphics brighten children’s play areas in daycare centers and kindergartens, family restaurants, and anywhere kids hang out.
 
They’ve been used with great effect in senior living and care communities, where familiar scenes and welcoming images help create a sense of peace, security, and comfort — especially helpful for memory care residents.
 
Well-chosen wall graphics can make small, claustrophobia-inducing areas appear larger. They can create a sense of fun and whimsy.
 
Restaurants, museums, civic centers, and other organizations often use wall graphics to display photos of how their local area looked in the past. These can help increase customer enjoyment of your facilities and add to the impression of “belonging” for your business. 
 
The applications for wall graphics are limited only by imagination and budget. Fortunately, they are one of the most affordable types of signage available.
