Do you have a plain wall that you feel is missing something? Maybe you could hang a picture or a mirror or maybe you could create a feature wall by painting it in a different colour. A great alternative to these ideas would be to make a feature wall with an image or design completely personal to you or your surroundings. Tailored Graphicz can take care of your wallpaper printing needs from start to finish and unlike most online wallpaper printing websites we are an established signage company so can usually offer installation in most city metro areas. Alternatively, the products we supply are quite simple to self-install. We are also experts in all roll media stock so can point you in the right direction regarding the right type of wallpaper to choose.
Due to modern paints it is important to make sure that your wall is prepared correctly before you start and that you choose the right product. Failure to follow the guidelines could result in the printed wallpaper not adhering properly or failing after installation.
Wash & Wear or Teflon type paints are designed to repel dirt and other nasties, unfortunately they also repel adhesive. If your wall is painted with this type of paint there are a number of things you will need to do first.
1. The wall can be painted with a clear coat like Viponds to allow the wallpaper to stick
2. Ahlstrom EasyLife® Spray & Up may be used
It is also important to allow any new paint a minimum of 30 days to completely outgas before covering.

Designs and Images
Because Tailored Graphicz is a large format print and signage business we have real staff on site during business hours and don’t rely on online orders. This means we have a lot of experience to hand, but we also have a full-time graphic designer who can set your project up for you or lend a helping hand if you need it.
We don’t carry stock designs like most online wallpaper printing websites as we believe this narrows down the possibilities of what you can choose. Instead we point you to image stock websites such as Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Pixabay and many others. Here you simply choose the design you like and tell us the code. As we have accounts with these companies we can download them for you.
