Architectural Commercial Wall Coverings and Wall Papers

Successful application of vinyl wall graphics start with surface preparation.

Wall Covering digitally printed and applied as a wall mural.

Just like your last paint job the result and longevity of the work is dependent on the how well the surface was prepared.  The install surface must be clean, smooth, dry, undamaged, free of mold, mildew, grease or stains, and structurally intact. Testing the surface with a sample of the adhesive material to be applied is always preferred.

This interior wall in a renovated company cafeteria was prepared for the application of custom printed vinyl adhesive wall graphics.  The dry wall surface was filled and painted with high gloss paint.  Once painted the surface must be left to cure as prescribed by the paint manufacturer. This preparation provided the best surface for the vinyl adhesive to adhere properly. Here is an example of an extensive set of wall graphics installed in a building corridor at the University of California Riverside. 3D elements were added through the time line to enhance the presentation.

Preparation of a wall surface for the application of vinyl adhesive graphics

Each of the following items can cause either poor adhesion when you apply your graphic.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Highly textured paint

Poor initial paint bond or poorly painted edges (make sure your paint isn’t chipping or peeling)

Patched areas that have not been primed

Dust, dirt or other contaminants on the wall

Freshly painted walls that have not had time to cure (We recommend at least 2 weeks, 3 weeks is best.  If you have questions on how long it takes your paint to cure, contact your paint supplier).  Vinyl graphics tend to bubble and release from the wall if the paint is still in the curing process.

Wall murals are often employed as presentation tools in museums and art galleries. Libraries use them to theme a space as well as present interpretative information to visitors. Advertisers use them to make striking impressions in almost any venue, from sports stadiums, to high rise buildings.

Installation was completed in a couple of hours, to the satisfaction of Sydney Torrey, “I just sent you the pictures I took of the installation. It turned out fantastic and Rolando did a great job.”

Harvey Mudd College in Claremont Ca. has introduced a super scale Intel microprocessor into the classroom. Prof. David Money Harris Associate Professor of Engineering has a striking example of the Intel 386™ Microprocessor in his class room on a ten foot square wall.

Prof. Harris provided their purchasing coordinator Sydney Torrey with a poster size image of the microprocessor with a request for it to be printed at high resolution and installed as a wall covering in his classroom.

Sydney contacted B3 in Rancho Cucamonga for a consult on producing suitable artwork for large format printing. The classroom was surveyed by an expert installer to choose the best materials for print and installation. Print ready artwork was produced by scanning the poster at high resolution, producing an 80 megabyte file.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

3M adhesive vinyl, with an over laminate were selected, providing the sharp image with the durability required in a classroom environment. Preparing the file for the 48” wide material requires some planning. The panels are overlapped at installation, and must match seamlessly.

PrintB3 offers many different materials for printed wall coverings, and now includes a dry erase laminate for classroom wall graphics.
