Finishes

Take a look at the range of finishes we can provide for your map, here at Business Map Centre. If you have any questions about any of these, do feel free to get in touch with us.

Paper

Your map is printed onto 120 gsm paper and is left unfinished.

Laminated

Your wall map will be finished with an encapsulation process. Encapsulation means that the maps are heat sealed between two sheets of industrial quality film. Please note that the edges of this map are not sealed.

Encapsulation gives the map a write on wipe off finish, meaning that, using a dry wipe marker or Chinagraph pencil any writing on the map can be wiped off with a proprietary cleaner.

Pinboard mounted

Mounted onto foam centred board for rigidity, appearance, and the ability to be tacked with pins. Supplied mounted onto Kapa mount foam centred board. Fixed to the back of this board is a hanging mount, allowing you to easily hang your map.

Rolled canvas (unframed)

Your map is printed onto canvas and delivered rolled in a tube. Mirrored edge. Please note we copy and “flip” the outer edge of your map to give it a “mirrored” edge. If you require a non mirrored edge please contact us for details.

Canvas

Canvasses are wrapped around a quality wooden frame to stretch the material to perfection.

Canvasses are:

  • Hand made by us with great care
  • Supplied with corner wedges for the re-tensioning of your canvas
  • Individually bubble wrapped and carefully packed in a sturdy, custom made box for the total protection of your print.

Acrylic

Your map can be directly printed onto acrylic giving a translucent finish. This is a high class finish but really needs a light neutral background wall colour. Each panel arrives with pre-drilled holes in each corner and 4 aluminium wall fixings to enable you to attach the artwork to the wall of your home, office, shop, bar or hotel.

Wallpaper

Fitting and installation

Our pre-pasted wallpaper from HP needs no additional adhesive and is so simple to install that you won’t need to pay for a commercial decorator to do it for you (although we have fitters available should you wish – call us on 01993 880 939 to discuss).

Wallpaper details

The wallpaper is PVC free and is printed using HP’s Latex inks ensuring you get a more environmentally friendly mural compared to one produced with solvent inks. It is also odor-free making it safe for all rooms in the home and commercial interiors where the initial solvent smell would be an issue such as schools, restaurants, cafes and offices. The ultra smooth finish and the latex base of the inks provide vivid colour graphics with high-definition detail.

Removal

When the time comes to redecorate, the wallpaper is so easy to remove that HP provide a warranty for clean removal making it ideal for exhibition graphics or rented properties. You can then package up the stripped wall covering and recycle it through HP’s Planet Partners Recycling Program.

Bespoke mapping wallpaper

If this standard pre-pasted Wallpaper map is not quite what you’re looking for then we offer a bespoke wallpaper service. You can request the exact size to fit your wall and even change the design and colours of the map. Additionally we offer a range of different wallpaper finish options including smooth, laminated and magnetic lined wallpaper. Call our team on 01993 880 939 and they will talk you through all the options. Alternatively email us on enquiries@businessmapcentre.com with your details.
