Wall Murals (Phototex Indoor Re-usable)

Why you would choose this product: This product would be used if you need a high quality graphic applied to a smooth, low energy surface such as a painted plasterboard wall. For rougher surfaces we recommend the use of solid panel signage such as foam PVC or aluminium composite panel. It is perfect for long term use on internal walls in businesses or homes - and it’s removability also makes it ideal for short term promotions.

Material Used:Photo Tex - polyester material - with no lamination

Printing: Printed onto the front of the wall graphic vinyl in high resolution full digital colour on HP Latex large format printers

Adhesive: Removable, re-positionable and re-usable

Application: We recommend it for use on painted gyprock walls. These walls should not be painted with “wash & wear” or teflon paints. Any newly painted surfaces should be left for 40 days to allow outgassing before applying the Phototex Wall Murals. Manufacturer advises this is suitable for most smooth clean surfaces

Advantages: This product provides a high quality graphic image for the painted plasterboard wall - and will adhere to this type of walls where other vinyls may peel off. It is a low cost way of achieving a large digitally printed graphic. The Phototex drops overlap so joins are barely noticeable.

  • 95% blockout material to cover old colours
  • Full colour high resolution digital print
  • No professional installation required - easy to self-install
  • Can be easily removed without leaving adhesive residue
  • Can be used multiple times after removing and storing on original backing paper

Disadvantages: Cannot be used for rougher surfaces such as concrete or timber walls as adhesive vinyls will not adhere to these surfaces. You would need to use solid panel signs such as foam PVC or aluminium composite panel for these rougher walls.

 

Floor Graphics

Why you would choose this product: This is a great product to use when you want to display a product on the floor of a shop or office - in full view of the people walking over the graphic. The floor should be a smooth sealed surface such as painted concrete, tiles or laminated flooring.

The floor graphic can be die cut to shape for maximum impact.

We have 2 different types of Floor Graphics:

a) Our Economy Floor Graphic is rated at R9 slip resistance and suitable for applications up to 3 months.

b) Our Premium Floor Graphic is rated at R10 slip resistance and suitable for applications up to 9 months.

Material Used: White monomeric vinyl with a special anti-slip floor graphic clear monomeric lamination applied over the top of the digitally printed vinyl. The base vinyl has an adhesive which is removable for up to 12 months. The floor graphic lamination has been specially developed to provide a surface which minimises the possibility of someone slipping on the floor graphic.

Printing: Printed onto the front of the floor graphic vinyl in high resolution full digital colour on HP Latex large format printers

Adhesive: Removable

Application: Applied directly to the floor

Advantages: This product provides a high quality graphic image which can be die cut to shape and applied to floors. It can be used in shops or offices and placed in high traffic areas for maximum visibility. Can be self installed and can be easily removed within 12 months. Great for store promotions.

Disadvantages: Will not adhere to non-smooth surfaces such as carpet or non-sealed concrete.

Custom Stickers

Note: All custom stickers are printed with the same high resolution full colour digital print - the only difference is the type of vinyl used.

Our custom stickers can be produced in any size larger than 35mm and are die cut to shape. All our sticker vinyls have an adhesive which is removable with heat and chemicals. We have 5 different vinyl types for our custom stickers - 4 of these vinyl types are white and 1 vinyl type is clear.

A) Clear vinyl stickers: Clear gloss premium (3 year) vinyl stickers

Why you would choose this product: The clear stickers are generally used when the sticker has a shape printed onto it and you want to be able to see the background colour of the product it is being applied to (instead of a white or coloured background on the sticker itself).

Why you would NOT choose this product: You would not choose this product if you:

  1. Need white colour printed onto the sticker. Our printers do not print white colour - so any white in the design will be clear.
  2. Are placing the sticker onto glass - we find that the print on the clear vinyl stickers can be difficult to see when the stickers are placed onto glass
  3. Require the most vibrant colours to be printed. As these stickers do not have a white background the colours will not be as vibrant as they are when printed on white vinyl.

Material Used:

  1. Clear polymeric vinyl
  2. (optional) Clear polymeric vinyl applied over the top of the digitally printed clear vinyl. This lamination will provide mechanical and extra UV protection for the digital print.

Printing: Printed onto the front of the clear gloss premium vinyl in high resolution full digital colour on HP Latex large format printers

Cutting: The stickers are die cut to shape and supplied individually Note: We can also supply the stickers kiss cut on sheets by special request.

Adhesive: Permanent

Application: Applied directly to smooth flat surfaces

Advantages: This type of sticker allows you to see through the clear artwork sections to the colour of the product it is applied onto (instead of having a white or coloured background on the sticker). This can be beneficial for designs which are in full colour or too intricate to be supplied in computer cut solid vinyl. These stickers are generally much lower cost than computer cut solid vinyl stickers.

Disadvantages: As mentioned in “Why you would NOT choose this product”

B) White vinyl stickers - 4 types:

i) Gloss white economy (1 year) vinyl stickers

Why you would choose this product: The gloss white economy stickers are a low cost product which provides high quality digitally printed stickers for short term (1 year) use. These stickers can be used for most applications although are not recommended for vehicle signage.

Why you would NOT choose this product: This product is not suitable for boat applications - it is not resistance to salt water. For these applications you should use our 3M cast vinyl.

Material Used:

  1. White monomeric vinyl (1 year)
  2. (optional) Clear monomeric vinyl applied over the top of the digitally printed white vinyl. This lamination will provide mechanical and extra UV protection for the digital print.

Printing: Printed onto the front of the white gloss economy vinyl in high resolution full digital colour on HP Latex large format printers

Cutting: The stickers are die cut to shape and supplied individually Note: We can also supply the stickers kiss cut on sheets by special request.

Adhesive: Removable

Application: Applied directly to smooth flat surfaces

Advantages: These stickers are the lowest cost digitally printed stickers. While the vinyl is a 1 year vinyl you still get the same high quality digital print. These stickers are usually much lower cost than computer cut solid vinyl stickers.

Disadvantages: The vinyl is a 1 year vinyl - for more permanent installations you should use our premium or Avery cast vinyl stickers.

ii) Gloss white premium (3 year) vinyl stickers

Why you would choose this product: The gloss white premium stickers are a great all round product with 3 year vinyl and high quality digital print. These stickers can be used for bumper stickers and most applications where greater durability is required.

Why you would NOT choose this product: This product is not suitable for boat applications - it is not resistance to salt water. For these applications you should use our 3M cast vinyl. Material Used:

  1. White monomeric vinyl (3 year)
  2. (optional) Clear monomeric vinyl applied over the top of the digitally printed white vinyl. This lamination will provide mechanical and extra UV protection for the digital print.

Printing: Printed onto the front of the white gloss premium vinyl in high resolution full digital colour on HP Latex large format printers

Cutting: The stickers are die cut to shape and supplied individually Note: We can also supply the stickers kiss cut on sheets by special request.

Adhesive: Removable

Application: Applied directly to smooth flat surfaces

Advantages: The premium vinyl stickers are a great all round product suitable for use in most applications. The vinyl is good medium term 3 year vinyl and still provides the same high quality digital print. These stickers can also be used for vehicle application (flat surfaces only) and are the preferred product for bumper stickers.

Disadvantages: The premium vinyl is more expensive than the economy vinyl. It is not compatible with salt water and will not conform over corrugations in vehicles (for these applications we recommend the Avery cast vinyl with Avery cast lamination)

iii) Matt white premium (3 year) vinyl stickers

Same as gloss white premium stickers - except this product has a matt finish (not gloss)

iv) Gloss White Avery Cast (5-7 year) Easy Apply vinyl stickers

Why you would choose this product: The Avery gloss cast vinyl stickers are the top of the range product. This product is the best product to use for vehicles and boats and has the longest life expectancy of 5-7 years. It is a “bubble-free” vinyl which has adhesive air release channels for easy installation.

Material Used:

  1. Avery gloss cast vinyl (5-7 year) with adhesive air release channels (bubble-free)
  2. (optional) Avery gloss cast lamination applied over the top of the digitally printed vinyl. This lamination will provide mechanical and extra UV protection for the digital print and is recommended for vehicle applications.

Printing: Printed onto the front of the white Avery gloss cast vinyl in high resolution full digital colour on HP Latex large format printers

Cutting: The stickers are die cut to shape and supplied individually Note: We can also supply the stickers kiss cut on sheets by special request.

Adhesive: Bubble Free - Removable with heat

Application: Applied directly to smooth flat surfaces. When applying to non-flat surfaces we recommend using an experienced installer and complying with Avery installation instructions.

Advantages: The cast vinyl stickers have the longest life expectancy of all the sticker vinyls. The cast vinyl has a pressure activated adhesive which allows for easy re-positioning and it has very good hiding power. It can be stretched and conforms to curves and corrugations. It has a removable adhesive and can be removed with heat or chemicals.

Disadvantages: Higher price than the other vinyls.

Low Surface Energy Surfaces - Gloss White High Tack (3 year) SAV

The base vinyl is a “bubble-free” vinyl which has adhesive air release channels for easy installation of large graphics onto panels. It has a permanent adhesive.
