5 Benefits of PhotoTex Wall Art

sliderIt’s no secret that wall graphics, wall coverings, and removable wall art are on the rise for interior decorating, for both residential and corporate use. There are a multitude of options for products, designs, materials, applications, and to be honest- it can be a little overwhelming! Finding the perfect product for your space is the main priority, and during your search you may run into many questions, the main one being; should I use Adhesive Vinyl or PhotoTex? Well, whether you chose PhotoTex or Adhesive Vinyl for your wall graphics, both will adhere to your walls and can be taken down pretty easily. However, there are a few reasons why we would recommend PhotoTex wall art as the better option for many projects that we work on.

Here are 5 benefits of PhotoTex Wall Art:

  1. PhotoTex means no residue: When removing PhotoTex, you won’t damage your walls and it never leaves behind any residue.
  2. PhotoTex is extremely durable: PhotoTex can withstand heat, cold, wind and water. Through any weather or temperature change, PhotoTex doesn’t shrink, curl, rip or wrinkle. This is why PhotoTex is the top choice for decorating Sports Arenas.
  3. No air bubbles, no wrinkles: You know those annoying air bubbles that you can sometimes get when you apply Adhesive Vinyl to a surface? Because of awesome technology, PhotoTex was designed to resist air bubbles and wrinkles.
  4. PhotoTex is Re-usable: If you choose to redecorate or redesign a space, PhotoTex can be removed and reapplied over and over again. When you want PhotoTex to stick, it does, when you need to move it, it will! 100 times over!
  5. PhotoTex is odorless, eco-friendly, and non-toxic: PhotoTex is a green material. It is non-toxic, phthalate-free, and is designed to stick to all low and no-VOC paints. At TGI, PhotoTex is printed on our HP Latex 360 & HP Latex 3000 presses, which both use eco-friendly, water-based industrial inks.

So whether you are considering Wall Coverings for residential or commercial use, the possibilities are endless with PhotoTex. Office spaces, waiting rooms, hotels and hospitals all love PhotoTex, and so will you. For more information about PhotoTex and to test it out, visit our PhotoTex page: www.tginc.com/print/phototex

Move Over Generic Décor, Digital is Taking Over

http://youtu.be/cW7_cEQKKTs

Interior designers, for commercial and residential spaces, are turning to customized Digital Décor to add awesome impact to their design plans. It’s no secret that digital Décor is on the rise, for both residential and commercial design, and for good reason. Due to advances in technology, it is now affordable to customize materials as varied as wall paper and wall graphics for enterprises, businesses of all sizes, and even residential use.

Residential

Interior designers are flocking towards digital décor because of its endless possibilities in customization. In lieu of your standard wallpaper, they are turning to customized wall coverings, wall decals and printed canvases to add a personal touch to their client’s homes. Using alternative materials for wall coverings, they are getting rid of the wallpaper mess, and creating customized digital printed wall coverings that are mess free. Web to print digital décor for residential use is also on the rise, so anyone desiring a new appearance for their home, can create endless personalized décor. Personalized galleries using family photos, wall coverings made from a collage of favorite photos, and wall decals from customized artwork, these are all things that everyone is excited about.

Commercial

Restaurants, corporate offices, retail spaces, hotels, hospitals and health care facilities are turning to digital décor to make a big impact in their design. Why are they using Digital Décor now? Because their branding, marketing and messaging can be carried out throughout their entire space, they are making great use of the marketing real estate in their facilities, and making an impact on consumers.

Customized Wall Coverings

Digital Printing Technology allows for companies to design and customize their own wall coverings, making a standard wall covering or paint, seem so blah. Whether for creating an aesthetically pleasing space of a hotel lobby, to creating atmosphere in a restaurant or to carry out branding design elements in corporate offices, companies love the impact that wall coverings have on their customers. The ability to create murals or wall coverings using designs that they produced, are more intriguing than ever before.

Customized Artwork

Companies are able to design their own works of art to hang on the walls of their businesses. Using photographs of their own, or artwork created just for their space, they can create customized photo galleries, or canvas prints to carry out their look throughout their businesses.

More Digital Capabilities

Businesses and commercial interior designers are going beyond wall coverings and photo galleries, because of updated technology, they can now cover everything, floor to ceiling with their own customized designs. Companies are thinking smart in which real estate of their businesses to carry out their marketing. Textile printing capabilities can completely transform restaurants décor from throw pillows, curtains, tablecloths and napkins and even furniture, allowing for their space to be their own. Ceiling coverings, vinyl decals, floor coverings, lampshades, tabletops and even menus can all be created by using Digital Printing Technology.

We are looking forward to 2014, and some great transformations at TGI: 

SUPER Wide Format:

We can now print larger materials, at higher speeds with incredible quality and competitive prices. This printer combines high volume and high quality printing, with all the environmental benefits of water-based inks. The environmental aspect is incredible! Outdoor advertising, retail POS/POP signage, events and exhibitions and wall coverings are just a few things that this new technology is allowing TGI to do on a larger level.

New Construction:

We are renovating here at TGI, due to our purchasing the new HP Latex 3000. We want to showcase that technology and all of the incredible products that it can produce, and so we are transforming our old kitchen/meeting space into a showroom for Super Wide Format. We are also converting our old lobby into a conference room. We can’t wait to show our clients our updated look!

In 2013, many campaigns and developments occurred at TGI: 

MarCore Webinar:

TGI launched our first MarCore Webinar, The Art of Efficiency, about TGI’s MarCore online portals. We discussed the importance of web to print solutions, inventory control and eliminating obsolescence. We look forward to hosting more webinars in the future.

New Technology:

Staying on top of industry trends is important to us, and we are constantly searching for the latest technology. Over the summer, TGI visited the HP Headquarters in Atlanta. Our goal was to scope out a new Latex printer and the latest in HP equipment, but we came back with something SUPER!

St. Jeanne Jugan Award:

TGI went Social:

Inspired by the opportunities to learn, listen and to provide solutions or ideas to our clients, we turned our attention to Social Media. Over the summer, we made it our goal to build and maintain relationships with our clients by developing educational blogs that would highlight digital, print and marketing trends. TGI’s Social Media presence has opened new doors for our clients to stay in touch with us.

It has been a great 2013, and in 2014 we are looking forward to showcasing our new technology and capabilities.  In the spring, we hope you will join us for our Open House!
