    Vertical Printing Advantages compared to Painted Wall Mural

    1. Precision and Consistency:

      • Vertical wall printing utilizes advanced digital printing technology for precise and consistent graphics. Painted murals may vary in quality and detail depending on the artist’s skill and experience, potentially leading to inconsistencies.
    2. Customization and Reproducibility:

      • Vertical printing allows for complete customization, enabling clients to create unique and personalized designs. Painted murals are typically one-of-a-kind creations and can be challenging to replicate with precision in multiple locations.
    3. Quick Installation and Adjustability:

      • Vertical printing can be installed more quickly compared to the time-intensive process of hand-painting murals. This reduces downtime and disruptions for businesses. Additionally, vertical prints are easily adjustable and updatable, providing flexibility for future changes without the need for extensive repainting.

    Graphic Films Meet Low VOC Paints:

    It’s the biggest challenge many installers are facing today: Graphic films are not adhering to painted surfaces as reliably as they once did.

    Paints that are low in Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are now the most commonly available wall paint. These newer paint formulations are being driven by laws intended to help protect the environment – something we can all appreciate. However, the new paint formulations have reduced how well a film’s adhesive can adhere to a painted wall. Because the paint formulations are protected by trade secrets, it is difficult for any film manufacturer to understand how film adhesives interact with these paints.
