Street and Sidewalk Decals (Decals)
Custom Street and Sidewalk Decals
Floor Graphics are a great solution to turn your floors into advertising space. Put them up as temporary signage. Rather than banners that need to be hung or supported by stakes, Floor Graphics stick to any flat surface. They are also designed with a silver backing that blocks out any underlying images, so they are a great idea for updating your brand, logo, or name, and you can use them temporarily over your permanent signage.
Custom street graphics are also abrasion and weather resistant, conformable to unsmooth or uneven surfaces, can be installed and removed without special tools or extra hassle, and are certified slip-resistant.
Custom street and sidewalk decals are perfect for events, festivals, races, campus tours, and walkways to direct foot traffic, advertise sales, brand storefronts, and more.
They are available for either short term or long term use. They are great for communicating messages and are designed to handle heavy foot traffic. They are adhesive-backed vinyl printed in full color on one side of 4 mil adhesive with a luster finish. Floor Graphics come in a range of sizes from 12" X 12" to 100" by 120".

Foil-based vs. Vinyl Graphics

These advantages include the ability to conform or be applied to uneven surfaces, the installation without specialized tools, far superior durability, a certified non-slip surface, easier and cleaner removal, and a more vibrantly printed design that appears as if it has been painted onto the end surface.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is contour cutting?
Contour cutting is the practice in which your design will be printed in the exact shape of your design. For example, if you have a hexagonal design and choose to print it using contour cutting, your design will be printed in the shape of a hexagon. If you chose not to have contour cutting done, your design would be printed in a square or rectangle around your design, depending on the dimensions of your design.

Sweep the surface to make sure that the floor is free of loose materials or dirt. for proper adhesion.
Make sure that the surface is dry, if not then power wash the area then allow it to dry before placing the graphic.
Avoid installing your graphic on any foreign substances like oil, grease, etc.
A mixture of 50/50 to 70/30 percent isopropyl alcohol plus water can be used for surfaces where adhesion is difficult. Right after applying the solution, wipe with a soft cloth.
Installing The Decal
Once your surface is completely dry and you have followed the instructions on top now we could start applying the decal. First off remove the colored liner from the back of the decal. Keep in mind the decal is not repositionable to before taking off the liner make sure you have an intended spot to install your decal on.
Next, lay the decal on the intended surface, and press firmly from the center moving towards the edges. If on an uneven surface layout your decal slowly by slowly.
Next, use a roller to go through the whole decal making sure that it adheres strongly to the surface and to remove any creases or bubbles.
That's it your decal is ready to go and do its job. However, it will take up to 24 hours for the decal's adhesive to fully dry.
If in need to clean your decal lightly spray with water from a low-pressure hose and sweep with a broom. Do not use harsh cleaning chemicals as they could damage your decal. If wanting to use a power washer do not use it on intense mode or too close to the graphic or they might damage the decal especially near the edges.
