Great. Big. Vinyl Wall Murals.
Why Invest in a Vinyl Wall Mural for Your Business?
Support Your Branding
One reason to use vinyl wall murals is to build brand awareness among your customers and employees. Wall murals give you the opportunity to showcase parts of your brand like products and services, business history, your community, etc.
Typical wall coverings, whether they be wallpaper or paint along with some wall hangings, don’t offer much opportunity for branding. Vinyl wall murals, on the other hand, give you the flexibility to be loud and proud about your business (company logo, slogan, mission statement or core values) as well as introduce some of the more subtle sides of you brand (photos of happy employees, your product being used, an aerial shot of your facility, inspirational quotes from people in the company, etc).
Create an Inviting Space
You always want to put your best foot forward to anyone who enters your place of business. Trading in plain painted walls for a wall with a creative mural is an excellent way to spruce up the look of your business. In addition to making your offices and lobbies look great, wall murals tell your customers you care about your business’ presentation, which encourages the thought that you care about your clients, products and services as well.
The beauty of custom murals is they can be anything you want them to be. You can tailor the mural design to your business and clientele, or you can use the space as an ode to your community. For instance, children’s hospitals often choose to center their branding around cute animals and cartoons to put their young patients at ease; or, if your business has strong ties to the community, consider a mural with a local landscape (i.e. the Greenville-famous Falls Park).
Motivate Your Employees
Boring work environments can cause employees to feel disengaged at work, and disengagement is the enemy of productivity. Art in the workplace is known to boost employees’ productivity. Multiple studies show that the aesthetic of an employee’s work environment has a direct impact on the way they feel and perform at work.
Colors are an important design element as they can have an impact on a person’s mood and productivity. Red encourages feelings of passion and enthusiasm, both great qualities in a workplace. Green, on the other hand, helps people feel optimistic and refreshed. While you don’t need to cover an entire wall in a solid color, using a specific color scheme can help set the tone in your workplace. By using customizable graphics, you can create unique artwork that reflects your company’s culture and motivates your employees.
The SpeedPro Wall Mural Process
We follow a tried and true process to make sure you get the most out of your SpeedPro Greenville experience.
Understand Your Goals
First, we talk with you and gather information about your business, your brand and your goals for the wall wrap. We’ll ask questions about the size and material of your wall, the type of wrap coverage you’re looking for and what design ideas you have. By gathering more information, we’re able to provide a more accurate estimate for the project. Some factors in estimating include the amount of vinyl needed for the project and whether you request design services.
The getting-to-know-you stage is also a great time to talk about vinyl textures and adhesion. Some of our wall vinyl has a semi-permanent adhesive, while others are engineered to be ultra-removable. Our materials also come in a variety of textures for you to choose from.
Project Proofing & Estimating
Often before providing an estimate we request to take measurements of your wall. While measurements are not necessary for a ballpark estimate, we’re able to give you a more accurate number up front if we’re able to take our own measurements. Taking these measurements will also help us better mock up your design and give you an idea of how the mural will look on the wall. Regardless, we can provide an estimate based on mural size alone, without knowing the exact design.
Once we have a template and preferably a photo of the wall, we mockup your design on our 2D template. If you request design work, we’ll provide multiple mockups until you have the design you want. The mockup process gives you an idea of what the finished product will look like, and this is the time to make any sizing or proofreading adjustments.
When you’re happy with the way your design looks on the template, we’ll give you a final proof and quote for your wall mural.
Production & Installation
After you give the green light, we begin production and schedule the installation. The amount of time needed for installation for wall murals depends on the type of material being used, the size of the mural and mural quantity. Smaller-scale projects would take a day at most, but if you have four or five murals being put up, we may schedule the install for a couple days.
Once in the production phase, your artwork is converted into printable files and sent to the printer. After printing, we laminate. Our laminator uses pressure to bond the vinyl and laminate together, protecting the printed design. After lamination, your mural moves to the trim pile for finishing. Finishing includes removing the excess vinyl from the printed portion of the wrap and labeling each piece for installation. When your install date comes, we hand the material to our installers and let them work their magic.
The Finished Product
The next time you walk into your office, your wall will look totally different. We’ll look over the new mural with you and make sure you’re 100% satisfied with the finished product. After that, your custom mural is yours to enjoy.
Benefits of Vinyl Wall Wraps with SpeedPro
Our goal is to help your brand stand out. Just think of us as an extension of your marketing team. We ask questions to make sure you receive the best solution to help you reach your marketing goals. Your satisfaction with your finished product means a great deal to us. One of our mottos is “measure twice, cut once,” so don’t be surprised if we ask to measure your wall twice to make sure we have all measurements needed to ensure the best result.
Our indoor wall vinyl typically lasts 5+ years. However, if you think you may try to take the mural down in a couple years, ask for information on our more removable wall vinyl. Our inks are UV resistant and because these murals are indoors, your wall mural should stay vibrant for years to come.
Wall murals are also very low maintenance: simply take a lint-free cloth or sponge to remove dust and debris every few months. Water and mild soap can be used to remove light stains, but stay away from harsh chemicals and be sure to keep water from seams and edges.
We are first and foremost large format printers, but we offer turnkey solutions for our clients. Installation is included in our quotes and design can be added if requested. We also offer wrap removal services if you’re planning on replacing the graphics. All our wall wraps are custom printed and priced based on square footage. In other words, you’ll be priced the same for polka dots and a full landscape scene, as long as the size is the same. We can digitally print and custom cut any size you need, and no project is too big!
