Custom Wall Mural

Why not take your best work and display it on your wall. Not just as a print but over your entire wall. Large format printing technology allows you to take a digital image such as a photograph and expand it to the size of a wall. This process creates a kind of custom printed wallpaper that you can put up to proudly display your work. The finished product uses non fading inks and is just as durable as store bought wallpaper, only this way, you will never find another person with the same design. Your designs can also be printed on a repositionable vinyl material that uses a mild adhesive so that it can be placed and replaced over and over. Imagine being able to switch out designs for entire walls on a whim, with each design being one of your own.

Digital Projector

A digital projector is a great way to display all of your photos as a slideshow or just showcase a single piece. Digital projectors are getting cheaper all the time, and you can pick up a decent one for a few hundred dollars. You do not even need a computer either, you can use a USB thumb drive or SD storage card on most new models. You could set up the projector on a wall in your studio, on the ceiling, or even on the side of a building to hold an impromptu art show. To get the best looking image from a projector, the room or surrounding area needs to be dark. Other than that, there is no end to the creative ways you can use a digital projector to display your photos.
