How we used custom printed wallpaper to transform YPS headquarters
If you have been following us on social media then you will know that we have been taking steps to transform our office space using Decal Media textured Wallpaper to showcase the capabilities of both the Mimaki CJV150-160 solvent printer and the Decal Adhesive ranges we stock. All of the wallpaper was printed in house and fitted by the YPS team.
Roll to Roll and Solvent Demo Room
First up was our downstairs demo room. This room houses our roll to roll printers and cutters as well as our range of Decal Adhesive media. We blogged about this transformation earlier, which you can read here but since the first wall of the room was covered we have done much more including several other rooms in the building. Following on from our paper press mural, we have expanded on this theme and used two photos that boasted a lot of texture and created gritty, industrial style walls.
We felt that because the room lacked windows that we should add some! The overall feel of the room had a Mediterranean home industry vibe so we played upon this by adding a scene through shutter framed windows. We used a blue palette throughout to pull the room together.
Several different textured wall papers were used throughout this process. Including Rondo, Brushstroke and Linear Mosaic.
Sales Office and ‘Coffee Cabin’
Next up on the list to transform was the upstairs office space that houses the admin and sales team. Again this room lacks windows so something bright and open was required. After much discussion, a vibrant forest scene was chosen with lots of orange and yellow tones to brighten the room. The oranges in this image retain their vibrancy due to the orange ink that is installed in our CJV150-160 demo machine. Well practised from decorating the downstairs demo room, the team were able to install the new wallpaper in approximately an hour and a half with minimum disruption to the office. This mural was printed on Decal Adhesive brushstroke wall texture.
To further enhance the office area, it was decided to turn the small meeting room/kettle area into ‘The Coffee Cabin.’ We intend to turn this room in to a coffee shop mock up. This is something that we will build upon next year and add to in order to showcase the Mimaki capabilities for sign and graphics. To kick things we off we went for a distressed wood panel look using an image of reclaimed wood planks in a muted colour palette. We used Decal Adhesive Wall Texture in brushstroke for its simple texture and matte finish. The view from the door into the office space when you can see both wallpapers works really well. We can’t wait to build upon this with further display graphics.
Industrial and Textile Print Demo Room
The final room transformed was our upstairs demo room. This room houses our direct to object LED UV printer as well as our textile samples. The wall we were looking to improve already had a custom wallpaper applied featuring YPS and the brands and suppliers we work with. We chose to build upon this for our new wallpaper using the three routes to profitability; sign and graphics, textile and industrial print as our basis.
Using a bright colour palette we have showcased everything that YPS is about and stands for. Everything from our ‘about us’ through to the products and brands that we sell can be found on this wall. The design has a simple white background with pops of colour that works with the existing CMYK wall vinyl we have under the windows. We have also added new framed photo prints in bold, bright colours and expanded our textile sample offering using a basic shop display. We used Decal Adhesive wall paper in Linear Mosaic to cover this wall. The simple line design works well with the modern graphic elements. For the vinyl plinth we used Decal Media Permanent Blockout Vinyl.
Not just for the office…
A lot of the staff were impressed with the finish of the Decal Wallpaper that they decided to create feature walls in their houses too! Below are two pics from our MD Garry featuring the Brushstroke wallpaper in both a brick design and wood panel design as feature walls in two bedrooms. How good do they look?
