    So I've got a customer that want an aluminum trim around his mural. I hate the idea, but he is paying for. I've tried to find a good solution and the only model I've found is a technical drawing. But no information on where I could get them.

    If possible, I would like to have a source in Canada (Montreal area). I'm open to all suggestions also.

    Thanks.

    Have you looked at Outwater plastics? Not sure if they have a location in Canada though.

    Yes. I've even called them to be sure. They only have trims like J-shaped or U-shaped for thick material.

    Alright, so there is NO substrate involved other than vinyl applied directly to a wall. You just want to add a decorative border.

    Why not call Clarke Systems, see if they have a distributor up your way ?? They have a strip that looks just about like the one you have pictured and all you hafta do is to place some clips every so often and snap the frame in place. They're really for directories, but thinking outside the box, it would work nicely.

    Slatz would work except their clips all have endplates.

    Just don't use that kind. Get the ones that go in the regular directories and anchor them in as needed
