    What would you use to wrap a temporary construction wall made of plywood? The wood is unpainted, but the client is willing to paint if necessary.

    I'm leaning toward something like GF Concept 201-OAPAE or Avery 2923 Easy Apply. I know the wall needs to be painted to use the 2923, but the other might work on unpainted and I'm waiting to hear back from GF.

    Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

    They requested a wall wrap, not a banner. But I will give them that as an option, thanks for the idea.

    I can understand wanting to wrap, but it's plywood. Do a seamless banner and it'll look just as good as a wrap and probably be half the price and no paint. You don't have to worry if it'll stick or last. Won't show the plywood texture. Some times you gotta lead the customer to what they need and not what they want.

    We did the first sign out of ACM like 5 years ago and then wrapped it in banner. Turned out way better than trying to cover up the old panels.

    That looks excellent and I agree. I gave my client the prices and he's not interested. IDK, he actually wants to wheat-paste a 350sqft graphic on the wall, so I guess he's not necessarily searching for a clean look.

    GF 223 is great stuff and easy to install.

    Adhesive vinyl will fall off. Unless you prime, sand, paint at least two coats of gloss finish enamel, it will fall off when the wood gets wet a few times.
