Every so often, an exciting product hits the market that changes the industry and really grabs our attention. When PhotoTex, a self-adhesive fabric, came on the scene in 2004 it ignited a revolution in the peel and stick signage arena, and made up for the shortcomings of your typical vinyl signage. Creating a new range of possibilities for printers, sign makers, exhibition developers and interior designers, PhotoTex remains one of the most exciting developments in the printing industry, and at TGI.
PhotoTex is a revolutionary peel and stick self-adhesive polyester fabric material that can be installed on virtually any flat surface. It can be used indoors and out, in any weather condition, and can be removed and reused many times over. From sports arenas and retail storefronts to interior design, PhotoTex is changing the world of indoor and outdoor signage, and has become one of our favorite offerings.
Here are a few reasons why we are so excited to bring PhotoTex to your Marketing efforts:
Incredible Durability & Easy to Use:
We fell in love with PhotoTex for many reasons; one being that it is incredibly durable. It does not curl, shrink, rip, or wrinkle in almost any weather or temperature change, making it a great addition to our client’s indoor or outdoor signage. We also love that it is so easy to install, can be repositioned and is removable, making it easy to adjust for errors. The adhesive bond is revolutionary; it is extremely strong, yet the material can be peeled away after years in place without leaving any residue, and if kept clean can be reattached elsewhere. No tools or messy adhesives are required for installation, which makes wallpaper and wall graphic installations a breeze.
Super Green & Eco-Friendly:
In addition to the durability and flexibility of PhotoTex, it is also a green and eco-friendly material, which is ideal for hospitals and schools. PhotoTex is odorless, non-toxic & Phthalate-free, and sticks to all low and no VOC paints. It also has no PVC, Glycol-Ether or Formaldehyde. We print on PhotoTex using our HP Latex 360 or HP Latex 3000 printers, which both use the same eco-friendly, water-based, odorless industrial inks.
PhotoTex can be wrapped around corners and columns, placed on ceilings and walls, and be removed and reused without losing adhesive qualities. This makes the possibilities truly endless. Our clients in every industry can get creative with PhotoTex and we love helping bring their vision to life. Whether in the Retail, Financial, Manufacturing or Pharmaceutical sector, PhotoTex can help grab the attention that your Marketing efforts deserve.
