After we renovated to fit our new Xerox 770 Digital Color Press into the building, we had a blemished wall that really needed some cosmetic work. It’s highly visible when you enter our office area, so we decided to do it the High Res way. Instead of drywall mud and paint, we printed our own wallpaper. Read on to see how we went about it.
After sourcing high resolution artwork of the Avengers team, we scaled it to fit our wall (about 20′ x 10′). We printed it in five separate, overlapping panels on standard pre-pasted wallpaper. Each panel is about 48″ wide and runs from floor trim to ceiling trim. If you’ve ever hung wallpaper, the process is very similar. Wash the wall, soak the paper and the wall, apply with wet sponge, and squeegee out any excess water.
After the paper had sufficient time to dry, we added the dimensional lettering which is aluminum-faced foam board. Now our new printer is guarded by a team of superheroes. Who could ask for anything more?
