Frosted Option (privacy screen) :
Create a luminous and translucent effect for a window by applying a removable vinyl film. Ensure your privacy without preventing light from entering.

Paper Option :
Create a grandiose art piece using pre-glued vinyl that is easy to install. The matte finish reproduces the look of canvas.

Size and Dimension of the Photo :
To print mural size, the image quality and the resolution must be adequate. The file that you submit is always manually checked. For reference, the file must have a resolution of at least 10 pixels/cm or 25 pixels/inch, based on the final size of the print.

Do note that, unless it was created from a vectorial file, a mural print may appear slightly out of focus or pixelated when looked at up close. A mural’s resolution is maximized at a distance that allows you to view the image in its entirety.

We accept the following formats: TIF, JPG, EPS and PDF.
