Your Wall Art Australia: Installation Suggestions

CHOOSE ALMOST ANY SPOT TO SHOW YOUR PROMOTIONS!

 

Pick a smooth, dry and clean surface –The most traditional places include any wall, door, window or vehicle (do not block windshield). When placing your Photo Tex on a standard painted wall, make sure the wall has been previously primed prior to painting (otherwise the paint or adhesive may come off). Concerning newly painted surfaces, make sure you allow 30 days for out gassing preventing bubbling. If you place your Photo Tex on a pebbly, textured surface that has used eggshell paint or a very porous surface (i.e. brick, cement walls, stucco), you may receive poor results, although it has worked in most cases. So you may want to test first for a couple of days. Avoid placement above fireplaces. Outdoors use various on inks, especially any solvent or latex inks, so we recommend using a liquid lamination or clear coat for longevity (see below). You can overlap the material up to 1” or butt (as the material does not shrink or curl).

 

CLEAN IT BEFORE YOU STICK IT

 

Use a warm, damp cloth or sponge to clean the wall surface or window and allow it to completely dry. Make sure all previous cleaning solutions are completely gone. Outdoors we suggest you use a pump spray to save time. You can remove and replace the Photo Tex multiple times; however, once the adhesive collects too much dust, dirt or fibres it will become less effective and Photo Tex may not stick as well to your surface.
