One of the most satisfying types of printing services we provide from our sign shop involves wall wraps. While many of the other projects we’re involved in are information-based and economic (in other words, advertising), wall wraps are a situation in which we can let our artistic side shine. Sure, every project we do involves making stuff look good, but wall wraps can truly beautify a space.
You might wonder, what are wall wraps, and how can they make your space more enjoyable? Let’s take a look at the options we can offer you and why you’ll want to consider them.
What Are Wall Wraps?
Wall wraps are a cost-efficient way of decorating a space, whether it’s a retail business or an office space. Some people describe them as giant stickers that adhere to walls to give them visual interest. While wall wraps can certainly go around corners, the wrap part certainly isn’t necessary. However, they are an excellent option on curved partitions.
Wall wraps are often made of vinyl, though the materials can change depending on the location of the stickers (in direct sunlight, indoor/outdoor) and the texture of the surface they’re being applied to (textured wall, window).
They Can Be Custom-Made
Wall wraps can be premade or custom made to fit a particular space. When you order something that’s custom, it will be the perfect size for your wall. Getting it sized properly means that you never have to worry about awkward empty spaces that can come with premade wraps..
Another great reason to get custom wall wraps is that they can be designed to match your business perfectly. We can make vinyl wall decals with your business’ name that can be applied to doors or throughout the building. This keeps your name in front of customers all the time.
Set The Mood
It doesn’t have to be your logo that’s incorporated. Many businesses will choose to decorate with wall wraps in order to set the mood for customers. A spa might have stylized palm trees and beaches. Restaurants can decorate with the food they specialize in.
Of course, it’s not just retail stores that want to set the mood. Plain white walls — or wall of any single color — can be a boring work environment for those working in an office. Livening up the walls with wall wraps can be a cost-effective way to decorate in a new way. Because wall wraps can be as custom as you need them to be, it makes the space unique and fosters employee interest in the company.
Change Things Up
Like we talked about above, the type of wall wrap you’ll want is determined by a few factors. Placement is one, as is the type of wall it’s going on. But you also have to consider how long you want the wrap to last. If used for office decoration, it’s likely you’ll want it to last as long as possible. If it’s a much a decoration as the color of paint you chose, then you want to get your money’s worth.
Other times wall wraps are used as a temporary form of decoration. This is especially true for retail stores that are interested in seasonal options. Some stickers can be used year after year, as long as you take care of them properly. Most often these are used on windows. And speaking of windows…
Don’t Forget The Windows
Windows are a very popular place to use wall wraps. They can be seasonal, as we were just talking about. They can be used to advertise products that only show up sporadically (McRibs and Pumpkin-Spice anything come to mind). Of course, they’re also a popular option to tell people when you’re having a sale.
It’s Cheaper Than A Mural
A custom paint job can be very nice, and we’re not going to disparage any local artists who offer full-wall murals. The Loveland/Fort Collins area is an incredibly artistic area, and we’re delighted when they can make a living doing their art.
But murals can be expensive, putting them out of many business’ budgets. (Unfortunately, they also take a lot of time and can leave that lingering new-paint smell as well). If you can’t get the custom job you’ve been looking for, wall wraps are an excellent low-cost option.
Wall wraps can be a cost-effective way to really spruce up any space. They’re an excellent option for offices, retail stores, and even homes to create an inviting space.
