Elastic wall poster or wall covering
Firstly, to compare these two materials, we’ll introduce each of them separately. Then we’ll discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each.
First of all, it should be said that a wall poster is different from a wallpaper.
This is the difference in terms of material and design.
Wallpaper is sold as a roll, which also has a transverse limit and finally its width is 1.5 meters.
And once installed, the design and pattern on it is usually a duplicate of an image, such as a repetition of a flower image. No matter how wide your wall is, by adding the number of rolls, you can continue installing the wallpaper to cover the entire wall.
But the wall poster, after installation, forms a large image.
There are two types of wall posters: Ready-made and printed.
Ready-made posters have specific designs, dimensions and consists of several panels (piece-by-piece).
After installing all the panels together, a large image is formed.
This image can be anything; like a view of a city, sea, forest and… one of the leading brands in the market is the Kumar poster.
Companies collect images in one or more albums and sell them as wall posters.
Another type of poster is a printed poster. In recent years, it has become possible to print posters in any design and dimension. The printed poster has a variety of paper types and the customer can specify the desired paper type when ordering.
It’s possible to turn portrait images and personal photos into wall posters. You just have to keep in mind that there’s not much black in the image, which will reduce the quality and also double the cost of printing. In terms of sizing, you should also note that the horizontal image cannot be ordered as a vertical design. Also, if a lot of horizontal stretching is required, this will cut the part of the image that is so-called deformed.
Posters are not behind the glue and must be installed with a special glue by a professional installer.
Never install a poster yourself because if one of the panels are damaged, it will not be possible to prepare one panel and you’ll have to buy another poster again.
Posters are usually not washable and should typically be dusted with a duster, with very little moisture.
Wall poster or stretch wall covering?
Elastic wall covering:
Maz3D elastic material is made of pvc films. This wallcovering is produced and installed in an integrated manner. In this way, a profile frame made of aluminum is installed around the environment and the elastic wall covering of the Maz3D, which is produced with precise dimensions, is guided into the profiles after heating with a spatula. Around the wall is the elastic harpoon that opens after entering the profile and is so-called locked.
Comparison of wall posters and elastic wall coverings:
Print quality is the most important issue to consider.
It is better to get a print sample from the seller and compare the prints before buying.
A poster is a type of paper that is printed on. These papers have size limitations.
As a result, the image should be printed like a puzzle and the pieces should be put together during installation.
The elastic wall covering is made of pvc film, which is offered in rolls with a width of 5 meters and their length reaches 50 meters.
As a result, printing is done seamlessly and easily.
Sometimes when installing a poster, if even a mistake consisting of a few millimeters is made, lines fall between the puzzles, which doesn’t showcase pleasant results.
The elastic wall covering is integrated and there is no such problem.
Clarity and limitations in selection
In elastic wall coverings, the choice of the image is the responsibility of the customer, but in the poster, few limited images can be selected.
Of course, the desired image can also be ordered, but this option includes a higher cost, which is the same price for each image in the elastic wall covering.
Durability and warranty
Elastic wallcovering has a 50-year usage span and a 12-year written warranty. Wall posters are usually verbally guaranteed.
Resistance to moisture and humidity
If the poster wall is damp, it reacts immediately and loses its quality as it isn’t resistant to moisture.
Elastic wallcovering is antibacterial and completely resistant to moisture.
Elastic wallcoverings are washable and can even be easily cleaned with detergent.
Elastic wallcovering has the ability to transmit light and different lighting can be done behind elastic wallcoverings.
Wall posters must be attached to the wall and do not have such a feature.
