WHAT WE NEED

Simply provide us with the dimensions of the area to be covered, and the image or artwork you require.

ARTWORK

All normal artwork formats are acceptable. Images should be ideally a minimum 300 dpi quarter size for best results. We automatically interpolate artwork, to achieve optimum quality at no extra charge.

Email artwork, or upload to our FTP site.  See menu on left hand side to upload.

Our graphics team will advise and guide on all aspects of your design. We will help source images if needed and check the suitability of any artwork provided. If you require Tektura to change artwork on your behalf, this may be subject to extra cost.

TEKTURA STUDIO & GUEST DESIGNERS

These designs are exclusive to Tektura and have been created in collaboration with guest artists, photographers, graphic designers and graduates. They can be printed onto any of our standard wallcoverings, and are also suitable for window graphics or acrylic art.

Every design has been tried and tested, and looks fabulous, even when printed up to 3 metres tall. We can crop and resize to fill an entire wall, or to create a smaller focal point.

IMAGE LIBRARIES

If you have not yet sourced artwork, or are just looking for ideas, you may find it useful to search an internet-based image library. Images can be purchased direct from these libraries. We can of course help with sourcing, and will always check suitability of image for you.

SAMPLES

On receipt of artwork, we provide two samples for approval; one sample is a portion of the full size image, to show print quality and colour; the second sample shows a mini version of the complete image.

Initial samples are free. Subsequent samples may be subject to extra cost.

PRODUCTION

The wallcovering is printed in panels. Our software splits the image into panels according to the wall area.

DELIVERY TIME

Once samples are approved, lead time for finished goods is usually 7-10 days. We will always try and accommodate tighter deadlines.

INSTALLATION

Digital wallcovering is straightforward to install. Full hanging instructions are supplied with each order. The panels/lengths are installed as normal contract wallcovering, with edges overlapped and cut through. All panels include extra top/ bottom for trimming, and are labelled so that the lengths can be installed in the correct sequence.

Watch our video to see how digital wallcovering is installed.

WHAT WE PRINT ONTO

We print onto a wide variety of base materials. All are contract quality, fire rated to class 0 & 1, and suitable for commercial interiors.

Digifort: This is our standard print media designed specifically for digital wallcovering projects. Digifort vinyl is available with fabric or paper backing, in smooth, grainy and canvas textures.

Tektura Wallcoverings: We can print onto virtually any wallcovering within our range. This offers wide creative opportunity; metallic, iridescent and deep textures can also be combined with digital print for stunning results. Our standard wallcoverings can of course be used to decorate larger spaces, with selected areas embellished with digital print.

In addition to wallcovering, we also digitally print onto window film and acrylic.
