What can educational facilities do with custom wall murals for schools? The Rio Hondo College at 3600 Workman Mill Road decided to find out more about wall wraps in Whittier, CA. The school offers students more than 200 degree and certificate programs, and the project the administration wanted us to focus on had to do with the Business Management and Accounting departments.
We started this project with a site survey and wall surface test. It informs us about the type of vinyl we need to use for the best possible adhesion. A case in point is the surface in one of the classrooms, which had a concrete block wall. For this particular space, we selected high-tack cast vinyl.
The client asked our graphic artist to create the design. However, the administration did give us some student photos to incorporate. We developed a collage-style display that directs attention to the departments with quotes, photos, and images highlighting graduations. There are subtle differences between the graphic layouts for business management and accounting. They inspire learners and summarize the spirit of the programs.
It takes us only a few hours to install the printed vinyl wall wraps. Our technicians used a heat application for the concrete block wall that allowed the material to conform to the surface texture. The other wall did not require this intensive treatment. Because the murals go up completely during our installation appointment, the students left a classroom with standard walls one day and returned to a classroom with customized displays and a whole new atmosphere the next.
In the past, a fresh coat of paint and some framed maps or wall art were the extents of classroom customization. However, the budget-friendly nature of imprinted vinyl makes this technology affordable to large and small schools alike. As a result, an administration can now choose to beautify previously challenging spaces. Examples include larger classrooms, workout spaces, and gymnasiums.
It is interesting to note that we also work with vinyl for exterior applications. If you have a playground, school yard, or another walled-in area that is part of your campus, discuss with our graphic artist how we can transform its appearance overnight. Besides wall wraps, we also use vinyl to place brand-building messages, wayfinding notes, and graphics on windows and doors.
