Paul Getty Museum in California needed custom printed marine grade upholstery fabric for a museum display. We communicated long-distance to decide on the perfect design and color. Then the vinyl was printed and shipped to California where it was upholstered at the museum. It was used to cover bed and bolsters for a medieval period exhibit.
We often work with out-of-state clients or franchisers to produce a specific custom product, in this case, printed upholstery fabric. We make the process simple with good communication and quick turnaround. For customers who can’t sit down with us at a computer, it’s important to send samples and test prints that they can see and feel for themselves to make the best decision.
“We started with mailing down some pre-printed samples for them to show their upholsterers and check the quality of the marine grade upholstery fabric,” Signs for Success designer Vanessa Bogensberger said. “The next step was quoting the 70 yards they needed to have printed for this project. After approval and deposit, we printed a sample test piece with their pattern and pantone PMS colors, as well as a few colors around their specified colors. We printed this in two print modes—speed and saturation—on the printer.”
We mailed the test piece to them, and they approved the pattern and chose the colors and print mode that best suited the project. From there, we printed the 70 yards of upholstery fabric and sent it to the customer.
