Examples of Unique Wallcovering Textures
Unique textures such as this distinctive exotic faux mayan stone finish by KoroGraphics® can give the appearance of a mural that was painted directly on the wall.
Another option from KoroGraphics® is Trade Route, a finely detailed interpretation of ancient Chinese horizontal “raw” silk. Subtle slubs adorn the face of this fine fabric texture and convey a rich, sophisticated appearance to the finished image, a true upgrade from a standard “Artist Canvas” texture.
WallFab by Presto Tape is a polyester nonwoven wallcovering featuring a natural hand-woven canvas texture. It produces vivid imagery and striking detail – something that has to be seen in person to get the full experience. It comes in a variety of options including WallFab, WallFab Pearlescent, and WallFab Black Metallic (all pictured below).
Easy Image by DaVinci Technologies is a PVC-free wallcovering with a premium fabric-like texture that produces vibrant images on a unique soft to touch surface.
What are Wallcoverings?
Wallcoverings are designed to cover an entire surface as opposed to a smaller section of a wall. Additionally, wallcoverings can serve to cover blemishes or imperfections on dry wall or plaster walls. Typical wallcovering media is also thicker and more durable than standard sign vinyl.
Why Choose a Unique Wallcovering Finish?
It is easy to go with a standard smooth or canvas textured wallcovering. They are mass produced and many times a less expensive option. Standard wallcoverings will always have a place in the market – especially for short term or applications where a big visual impact is not important. So why choose a unique finish?
Unique wallcovering media gives the appearance of a premium surface. Since the textures and finishes are indeed unique, it makes viewers more intrigued about the subject matter – something everyone in the digital printing industry strives for. Surfaces can vary greatly. Some wallcovering surfaces look as though the graphic has been painted directly on the wall. Others have metallic finishes and change appearance in different lighting. Heavily textured finishes create depth and rich images. As you will see in the examples below, the possibilities can open opportunities into new markets and carve a niche for you as you expand into this sector of wide format printing.
