A roadside rest area is an unusual place to find a wall mural, but I came across this in Florida last week and thought it was worth a mention.
In this case, they were selling all the places you might want to go in the Everglades. They had a beauty shot of the Everglades and a map of the attractions. If you were there on vacation, it made you stop and want to learn more!
Best of all, this is the kind of thing that can be done inexpensively. If we were printing the two 6×15′ murals, we would charge about $1200. That’s a pretty cheap way of doing a very striking display!
I spent the weekend in Quebec going to their Winter Carnival. It was fun, and cold of course. We stopped in this charming bakery, and nobody makes better bread than the French! I was surprised to find a terrific custom wall mural there.
Sadly, not of our making. Still, it shows a brilliant example of turning a big blank wall into branding for the store. In this case, they had pictures of happy people chowing their goods. It adds a lot of life to the space!
They could have filled the wall with framed pictures or nailed up a bunch of antiques. But I’ll bet this two wall mural set them back about $2000 including installation, went up in a day, and is different than what people are used to. Which is the point.
Cheaper, faster, better. There’s a lot to like!
This job was really fun. Our customer had about 20 family photos that he wanted to turn into a photo collage to decorate the walls of an exercise room.
We scanned the older physical photos, and arranged them in Photoshop along with a number of newer digital photos he had. Once we had everything sized to the walls, we output the custom wallpaper in roughly 42″ wide strips for application, which took an installer about 4 hours.
When it was all done, what a transformation of four white walls!
Ski Trail Map
Whether you enjoy downhill or cross country skiing, a trail map is essential to knowing where you are. We print a lot of them for both kinds of skiing, located as we are in the heart of NH ski country!
This particular map is located in the Waterville Valley Nordic Center, and we also made a number of them that are located on the trails themselves to help skiers figure out where they are as they are skiing.
It’s one thing to have a map of the trail, and quite another to locate yourself once you are deep in the woods! These trails have numbers at each intersection, and the numbers are also shown on the map. Boy, is that appreciated when you are not really sure which way is up!
