Printing on Foil Wallpaper

Photo on Foil Wallpaper

In this photo you see a photograph printed on a foil faced wallpaper material. It gives very nice effects to a great photo, and for sure something you don’t ordinarily see.

Anything that would ordinarily be white is now silver, and parts of the photo that don’t have a lot of ink on them have an affect that can be very interesting. The sand, for instance, is very much like shiny copper.

It’s different, and fun! Give us a call if you want to give it a try.

Time Line Wallpaper

Museum Wallpaper

Here’s neat way to save money on a display- incorporate the photos into custom wallpaper! Our customer wanted to show a timeline with photos from different periods. Instead of printing a dozen or more photos, they put the whole thing together as wallpaper.

It saved them money and gave them a beautiful presentation. It was easy, too, with less installation headaches. Going forward, there’s nothing to dust and no pictures to get crooked.

Banner for a Band

Banner for musicians band

Band Banner

We celebrated our 20th anniversary as a company last Friday night with a cruise around Lake Winnipesaukee on the Mount Washington cruise ship. It was a lot of fun, and the weather was perfect.

The band that played was Annie and the Orphans, and I was delighted to see one of our banners displayed behind them. We printed it for them several months ago as they celebrated their 50th anniversary.

For indoors, you will want to use matte finish vinyl to avoid the reflection trouble you would get with glossy vinyl and bright lights.

Banners are a great way to communicate, and we can do them quickly and affordably!

Conference Room Wallpaper

Conference Room Wallpaper

When your bring in a client, how do you show them the impressive things that you are capable of doing? Our customer Gearn Offshore did a custom wall mural of the jobs they’ve done, and put it on the wall outside their conference room. It’s a great way to strut your stuff.

In our office, we have large format prints all over the place. It’s not only fun, but it struts our stuff. If you are making a winch that’s 12×15 feet and is installed on the back of a ship, it’s a different challenge. Our custom wall mural does the job nicely.

Truth in Advertising

I bought a Hershey Bar the other day at the local CVS store. They had a yellow tag advertising, big as life, 99 cents. So I was surprised when the guy told me it was $1.49. Evidently the small print below the big price was “with your CVS card.” Yeesh, do I need to read all this crap every time I buy something?

First of all, I don’t get to this store that much, and never got a CVS card. Secondly, I don’t want someone’s big data system knowing what I buy at the CVS store. It’s also very intrusive to expect me to fill out a form to save 50 cents. But what really makes me mad is when they tell me it’s a dollar and it’s half again that.

Which is why we don’t do things that way at MegaPrint. When you see a price from us, that’s the price. We don’t have a loyalty program that makes you find your username and password every time you talk to us. We don’t have a bunch of little add-ons that tack on 50% to  the advertised price.

I’ve seen other people in our industry charge you $50 for a “file processing fee.” $10 for any file  format that’s not a pdf. Huge shipping charges. By the time you are done, you’ll find that we are really competitive. It’s just that we choose not to lead with a low price and stick it to you at the other side. I hate it when people do that to me, and that’s why we don’t do it to you.

Custom Wallpaper Borders

Custom Borders

Sometimes people want a custom wallpaper border instead of a full wall mural. We can do that!

Typically, we will print the wallpaper borders as 9 or 12″ strips, with an inch of overlap where they are to fit together. So, if you needed 40 feet of 12″ custom printed border, we would send you 4- 10’1″ strips a foot wide.

That uses the material efficiently, since it comes to us in 54″ width rolls. In the picture above you get an idea of how a customer’s order is printed. If we had printed him a single roll 50 ft long, he would probably have had to cut it into pieces to install it anyway!

Wallpaper in a Display Case

Display Case Wallpaper

Here’s an interesting job we just finished for Darden Restaurants. The customer had a display case on the side of the restaurant in a mall. They wanted it to look like you were looking into the restaurant when you looked into the display case.

They took a good quality photo of happy people having a meal in the restaurant, and we printed custom wallpaper to make it look like you were looking into the restaurant. I think it looks pretty good!
