Direct wallprint is a technique in which the print of your photo, text or illustration is applied directly to the surface. The design is printed on a transfer film. When the transfer layers are removed, only a wafer-thin layer of ink remains on the surface in question.
We apply this print to walls, floors, panels and furniture made of various materials such as wood, stucco, concrete or marmoleum. The technique, which is also referred to as 'digital fresco' due to the look & feel, makes it possible to fuse minute and detailed images with any surface.
When the design is printed, it is manually provided with an elastic adhesive layer. After a drying time of twenty-four hours, the transfer is applied and contour cut. Where necessary, we prepare the surface by sanding, degreasing or priming it and then apply the transfer with a roller. After the transfer foil has been removed, the ink layer is further pressed into the substrate with attention and precision, so that they merge with each other, as it were. A matt coating over the entire surface protects the design and makes the substrate and print one whole and also suitable for outdoor use.
Take a look at the project page of De Hollandsche Manege. Here we have applied various transfers to walls and furniture.
