Amazon invited us to return to the Eastvale facility to put together mission statement wall graphics in Riverside County, CA. Previously, we designed, produced, and installed wall stripes, a giant squid vinyl wall decal, and employee communication wall decals. Now, the client has asked us to redo a mission statement wall graphic done by a different vendor. It lacked the look Amazon was searching for and had begun peeling off the wall.
Our team redesigned the product with the information the client gave us. Next, we conducted the 3M recommended wall test before deciding on the vinyl for the job. The test revealed that we needed a high-tack vinyl for best results. We followed the manufacturer’s guidelines, and the finished result looks excellent, underscores the brand message complete with a squid graphic, and will not peel. It looks great!
What Goes into the Vinyl Selection When Putting Together Custom Wall Graphics for Offices?
Selecting the right vinyl for a wall wrap is crucial for achieving a successful and long-lasting installation. Wall wraps involve applying large adhesive vinyl graphics or decals to interior or exterior walls for decorative, promotional, or informational purposes. The choice of vinyl directly impacts the product’s appearance, durability, and overall effectiveness. Our team members leverage their 3M Preferred Installer training to get it right the first time.
Why Accurate Vinyl Selection Matters
- Longevity. Different vinyl materials have varying levels of durability and longevity. Depending on the location of the wall (indoor or outdoor) and the expected lifespan of the graphic, choose a vinyl that can withstand environmental factors like sunlight, moisture, temperature changes, and physical abrasion.
- Adhesive. The adhesive properties of the vinyl are essential for a secure and long-lasting installation. It should adhere well to the wall’s surface without damaging the paint or leaving residue upon removal. Additionally, the adhesive should allow for repositioning during installation, which helps avoid mistakes and air bubbles. However, wall paints and surface makeup influence the bond selection needed.
- Texture. Different wall surfaces have varying textures, and not all vinyl materials adhere well to all surfaces. For instance, a rough-textured wall might require a more aggressive adhesive or a conformable vinyl that adheres to irregular surfaces without wrinkling or lifting.
