    I'm curious how bad wall wraps get treated in public areas. I'm going to be printing full coverage wall graphics for a room children and food will be around and my boss thinks something like Avery 2611 or Phototex will get torn up. I'd like to hear about your experiences after installation.

    I suggest using a liquid lamination in any case.

    A friend of mine with two young boys installed clear acrylic sheets 48 inches tall over the walls in the boys rooms and hallway. He said by the time they can reach over the top they will be old enough to know better. Worked great.

    Kids, inks, vinyls...

    A caution! Please make sure the inks and media in question meet the U S Govt's CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission)codes. http://cpsc.gov/

    Photo Tex does meets all these safety codes.

    I have some PhotoTex on my showroom wall. Where I set all my Auction company's signs, it's slightly worn it over the years just from the edges brushing against it.

    I love phototex as well but for very long term murals we have done in the past, we use the same combo as a vehicle wrap. Laminated 3M 180..... Stays up nice, they can clean it, and just seems to last.
