A Beginner’s Guide to Wall Graphics in Omaha NE
From a mural covering a full wall to a small decal, wall graphics can be any size. They are ideal for workspace and lobby décor, merchandising, residential, commercial, and advertising uses. They can be created with permanent adhesives or a repositionable/removable adhesive. There are even materials formulated to work on odd-shaped and curved surfaces as well as on rough or smooth surfaces. To help you understand what options are available to you with wall graphics in Omaha NE, Sign-O-vation has put together this short beginner’s guide.
You should ask the sign shop you are working with if they are using brand name vinyl from manufacturers like MACtac, 3M, Arlon, Oracal, and Avery. All of these companies develop top of the line films, test the films, and guarantee their performance. You may save money with off-brand vinyl, but it will lack the consistency, performance, and quality you need.
You also need to choose the right adhesive for the job. After all, you want your graphics to come down when you are done with them and to stay up as long as they are working for you. We know how to match the adhesive to the project.
You also need to consider laminating your graphics. There really is no need for a laminate if your graphics are in a hard-to-reach spot away from sunlight. Conversely, if you want to install a wall mural in direct sunlight or in heavy traffic areas, an overlaminate layer will protect your wall decals for many years to come.
Before we apply any vinyl films to your walls, we test a swatch on an inconspicuous spot to make sure it will adhere correctly and not damage your paint. We never apply graphics to a freshly painted wall since this too can damage the paint job and cause your graphics to look shoddy. Instead, we wait several weeks before installing a wall mural.
There are a few options when it comes to application or installation of your wall graphics. Most of the time, we recommend that you let us install your decals so they will look their best and last for longer. However, for smaller graphics, you might be able to handle the application on your own. On the other hand, we can install larger graphics so that they will be wrinkle and bubble free.
