Most wall wraps are printed on high-performance adhesive vinyl.  When installed correctly, vinyl wall wraps are extremely durable and will last several years.  The releasable adhesive allows the graphics to be removed easily and cleanly when construction or the promotion is finished.  Another option for a full wall wrap is custom printed wall paper.  Finally, we can also print wall graphics on a temporary fabric vinyl.  This type of vinyl adhesive, called PT Changeable, was designed to be movable, washable and re-stickable.  It’s great for temporary promotions and repeat events.  This PT Changeable wall wrap for United Healthcare at Spokane Airport is a temporary advertisement.

Keep the Family Organized with Custom Dry Erase Wallpaper

From color coded calendars to scheduled de-clutter sessions, every family has to find a way that works for them to get organized and stay organized.  The Gaura family designed a giant organization chart, and Signs for Success printed it to dry erase wallpaper.  Now scheduling activities, coordinating chores and planning meals is simple and centralized on a large wall in the family’s hub—the kitchen.  The Gauras use fluorescent dry erase markers to stand out on the sleek black dry erase surface.

The design was created by Billie Gaura of Rainmaker, printed and laminated by Signs for Success and installed by Gale Fleming Wallpaper.  We printed the black dry erase wall on Smooth Type II Wallpaper, then laminated the print with dry erase glossy film, which makes the wallpaper dry erase compatible.  Our dry-erase laminate works just as well as the real things, making scheduling (and rescheduling) a breeze.

“I posted a picture of [the wall] on Facebook last night and already have 110 likes, and it’s been repinned 18 times. That’s quite a response!  We have three orders for them, too. I didn’t imagine that it would turn into a sales opportunity; I just wanted one for our family!” Billie Gaura said.

Dry erase wallpaper is completely customizable.  Custom sizing means we can create an entire dry erase wall, but we can also produce any dimensions to fit a smaller space or frame.  Also customizable are the graphics we print.  Not a cook?  We can nix the meal chart and use the space for a giant calendar instead, or even create a large feature art wall.  The design is completely up to the customer, and our in-house designers are more than happy to help create custom details.  Contact us for a free quote on custom dry erase wallpaper!

Dimensional Letters and Logos Donor Wall

2nd Harvest custom wallpaper and laser cut dimensional letters

Many non-profit companies rely heavily on support from generous sponsors and individuals to make their organizations a success.  What better way to acknowledge the magnanimous donor than a position on a donor wall?  We recently had the opportunity to work with Heidi Moll from Quinn Group Advertising & Marketing to produce their design for two donor walls at 2nd Harvest’s new Volunteer lounge.  This was a fun project that incorporated many mediums, including dimensional letters and custom wallpaper, to accomplish the desired effect.

Custom Wallpaper

The backgrounds of each donor wall were printed on Type II commercial wall paper.  There are many textures available, from smooth to textured, but we went with Nassau Dunes which has a light pebble texture.

2nd Harvest Pasco & Spokane added these wallpaper murals with dimensional letters and framing to their waiting room areas, by Signs for Success, dimensional letters Spokane

Dimensional Letters Spokane

The white dimensional letters are 1/4″ cut acrylic letters. The gold dimensional letters and wheat stalks are 1/2″ black PVC plastic with a gold metal laminate.  The Chemetal line offers a huge variety of metal finishes, including the popular polished or brushed gold or silver, allowing for a truly unique look. Plume Goldenrod was the finish chosen to enhance the wheat stock effect. We finished off the donor walls with oak trim stained a deep mahogany brown that really finished off the whole project.  In time the open areas will be filled with brass plaques with capital budget sponsors who help this worthwhile non-profit complete its mission.

We look forward to working with Quinn Group and 2nd Harvest on future projects.

History of Ford: Custom Timeline Wall Wrap

Timeline wall wrap on auto showroom wall

Ford has a rich history of American entrepreneurship and innovation.  This custom timeline wall wrap showcases just how far Ford has come since its beginnings in the late 1800s.  The wall wrap project began when Gus Johnson Ford wanted to cover an entire length of their showroom wall with a custom printed wall covering.  Signs for Success partnered with The Quinn Group to come up with a good solution.

“When Bonnie Quinn, from The Quinn Group, asked us to brainstorm wall coverings for Gus Johnson Ford, we met her down there to do a wall test to see what materials would work best,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said.  “Our options were wallpaper or decal coverings for the wall.  The wall is textured, so wallpaper was out.  We opted for 3M Control Tac high performance wrap vinyl, based on the wall test results.”  Control Tac wrap vinyl is what we frequently use on custom vehicle wraps.  It contours to fit every curve and crevice of a vehicle for a smooth paint-like finish, so it was perfect for adhering to a textured wall.

Adding Dimension to the Custom Wall Wrap

During the design process, we learned they didn’t just want a flat image, but photos and logos that stood off the wall for added dimension.  “In brainstorming, we talked about stretched canvas, printed acrylic, gatorfoam, and Sintra/PVC.  We also talked about mounting with standoffs, panel clips, and blocking out with double stick tape,” Vanessa explained.  Any of these solutions could have worked, giving a slightly different effect.  When Vanessa got the final approved artwork, however, many of the dimensional pieces were odd-shaped other than rectangular, so they opted for waterjet cut sintra/PVC at 1/4″ thick.  Adding blocks of ½” thick gator to the back of each sign gave them the 3D look Gus Johnson Ford was hoping for.

Wall wrap spans entire length of showroom

Installation went smoothly; the wall wrap was applied first, then the dimensional logos were installed with heavy-duty double stick tape on top of the wrap.  The showroom looks amazing with the new timeline wall wrap.  Signs for Success offers unique custom printing solutions for any surface.  Contact us for more information or to request a free quote!

 

4 Custom Wall Art Options for a Kid’s Room

 

 

Decorating a kids’ room can be both fun and challenging.  Artwork that is stimulating and safe can narrow the options considerably, especially if your little one (or you) is attached to a single theme.  Here are 4 ideas for decorating a child’s room with custom artwork:

1. Custom Canvas Prints

Canvas prints are a great option for a child’s room. Customize your canvas wall art by using drawings or paintings made by your child. Displaying a child’s artwork in a special way such as a gallery wrapped canvas boosts self-esteem and pride in their abilities and accomplishments.  We can scan in an image; add any special effects or text, if desired; print the image onto canvas fabric; then wrap the fabric tightly over a wood frame.  The finished product is ready to hang and enjoy.

2. Educational Themed Wall Art

Instead of being limited by mass-produced options available in stores, choose what images your child sees every day and learns from.  Some ideas for children’s custom wall art include:

  • Animals, including specific categories like Safari Animals, Insects, Dinosaurs or Sea Life
  • State or World maps
  • Types of Cars, Planes, or Trains
  • Types of Plants, Trees, or Animals common to your region
  • Religious characters or stories

Use your child’s interests as a guide, and remember, the sky is the limit when it comes to custom wall art. We have several materials your chosen artwork can be printed on: Corrugated Plastic, Foamcore, and Styrene are all lightweight yet sturdy options.

3. Custom Printed Dry Erase Board

If your child is old enough to handle markers, why not use a giant dry erase board with their favorite theme printed as a background.  They can draw in flowers, cars, or the family dog.  Mounting the board on the lower half of the wall will keep things in their reach and discourage coloring on other walls. To create a dry erase board, we first print your arwork, then cover with a dry erase laminate.

4. Custom Wallpaper

Go big and cover an entire wall! An outdoor scene is a great choice for one overall image, and can really spark a child’s imagination.  You can also use custom wallpaper to stick with a single theme like racecar track for a car theme, as castle for a princess theme, and so on.  HP’s new program HP WallArt makes it easy to create a wallpaper design from home, or you can visit our showroom and sit down with a designer to work on your custom wallpaper ideas.

No matter what type of custom print you choose, Signs for Success can help you create the perfect fun and educational wall art for your kids’ rooms.

Garage Door Wraps add dimension to your building

Doors make a great advertising wrap surface.  Business entrances, elevator doors, and even garage doors maximize your marketing budget by promoting your business in places you already own and customers frequent.

When it comes to getting the most out of your advertising dollar, we always recommend using every available space to promote your business and services, from vehicles to walls, floors, and/or entire buildings you have access to.  At Signs for Success, we’ve utilized large signs, custom window shades, vehicle wraps and fence slat signage, but we didn’t stop there.  We decided to take our own advice and makeover our 12’ x 12’ garage door with custom garage door wraps.

The concept for the garage door wraps wrap design started with the idea of creating a trick of the eye.  Signs for Success owner John Bogensberger envisioned an image of the garage with an unusual object inside so that at a glance, it looked like we were actually housing a train, aircraft, or whatever strange vehicle we could come up with.

Signs for Success designer Will Oakley began the design with a train engine, given the area’s rail yard history.  However, the steam from the engine couldn’t be manipulated easily to look like it was confined to the inside of the garage.  Next, he superimposed a plane, but the wingspan was too large, and even folding up the wings (similar to how airplanes are stored and moved around on an aircraft carrier) didn’t look quite right.  A fire truck didn’t seem interesting enough.  Finally, Will tried a military tank.  It was unusual yet realistic and had just the effect John was going for.

This tank design for garage door wraps was printed on 3M IJ35c10 Intermediate Conformable Vinyl and was installed in one afternoon.  By starting with a photo of the room (in this case the inside of our empty garage), then superimposing the foreign object, we achieved unique garage door wraps that serves as an example of our large format printing capabilities as well as a fun conversation starter.
