Quality Checklist for Kids

At the WOW wall Quality is King. Our aim is to produce beautiful interior wall art that will put a smile on your child's face. We use the highest quality materials and printing techniques that surpass other competitors on the market. As new technology becomes available we update our products so we're always a step ahead and create new and innovative ideas.

Using our experience and expertise we have researched all the key features and created a checklist that any wall mural should pass. Before you buy any wall mural, make sure it passes our quality checklist so you know you're getting the best possible value for money, and your child won't end up disappointed.

 

WALL MURAL QUALITY CHECK LIST

 

 

Double Width Material

 

Double Width Wallpaper Material

 

Our murals are printed on 132cm wide strips. That's over twice as wide as standard wall murals. The result is fewer joins and a seamless finish that looks great on your child's bedroom wall.

Why this is important:
Most other companies use 60cm wide wallpaper strips, resulting in a patchwork effect with awkward joins and mismatched seams. With our team of professional fitters, the look you imagine is the look you get.
 

 

Scratch Resistant

 

Scratch Resistant Wallpaper murals

 

Our advanced UV printing process and high quality material ensures our wall murals are extremely durable and scratch resistant. Our murals are made to handle daily wear and tear that comes with growing children.

Why this is important:
Most companies print their wall murals on standard paper which tends to be weaker and often deteriorates due to accidental damage.
 

 

Easy Wipe Surface

 

Easy Wipe Wall mural Surface

 

Because we use the latest UV printing technology, our wall murals are very easy to clean. They have an easy-wipe surface and can be cleaned with a damp cloth without damaging the material or colours. Perfect for parents!

Why this is important:
Many other companies use standard solvent inks that will run and stain if you try and clean them, resulting in damage to the colour and finish of your wall mural.
 

 

Anti-tear Material

 

Anti-tear Wallpaper Material

 

Our wall murals are printed on extra-thick 600 micron paper, which is up to three times thicker than standard materials. This ensures our murals are extremely robust and withstand tearing and other damage.

Why this is important:
Most interior design companies print on standard paper that is easily torn and damaged by young children.
 

 

UV Cured Printing

 

UV Cured wallpaper Printing

 

At the WOW wall we use advanced UV cured printing technology rather than traditional solvent inks. This means our wall murals have a vibrant colour finish that is extremely fade-resistant. We only use UV flexible inks, ensuring our wall murals are crack resistant and even more durable.

Why this is important:
Most companies use inferior solvent ink printing. The colours on these murals are more prone to fading and lack the vivid colour finish that makes our murals stand out.

 

 

 

CANVAS PRINT QUALITY CHECKLIST

 

Our enduringly popular fine art canvases transform any image into a beautiful work of art.

Each canvas is produced using a 12-colour giclée fine art printing process and hand finished by one of the UK’s most experienced canvas framing teams. We offer a complete range of canvas finishing options covering rolled, stretched and framed.

We then make a custom wooden frame - in any size needed up to a maximum of 3 metres - and stretch the rolled canvas print over it.

Please visit our Customsied Art page.

 

 

Rolled Canvas Print

Perfect for framing yourself or shipping overseas.

Each rolled canvas is produced using our professional pro-lab processes; comes with a 100+ year colour guarantee; printed on your choice of canvas substrate.

 

Stretched Canvas Print

The stretched canvas print is then hand finished by one of the UK’s most experienced canvas framing teams; ensuring each corner fold is perfectly smooth, tight and that all fixing staples are covered with special protective tape.

 

Product Highlights:

 

    Pro-lab print process with 100+ year colour guarantee

    Very high quality European knotless pine canvas frames

    Professional artist stretcher bars milled from the finest quality European kiln-dried knotless pine

    Hight Quality canvas print media at 400gsm

    Thick canvas frame depth: 38mm

    Four canvas edge finishing options (black, white, image wrap, mirror wrap)

    Tensioning 'wedges' and finger joints

    Handmade by some of the UK’s most experienced canvas framers

 

Each canvas frame is milled with a curved profile; minimising contact with the face of the canvas; preventing unsightly impression marks and surface cracking. We use finger-jointed canvas frames which create corner tension helping resist warping. For larger sizes, we add wooden 'wedges' to each corner; ensuring the canvas surface remains taut and allowing easy re-stretching in future years.

 

Framed Canvas Print

A stretched canvas comes with an internal frame created using specialist canvas stretcher bars. In addition, a framed canvas has a traditional picture frame added around the outside edge of the canvas. The simple addition of a wooden picture frame creates a completely new form of wall art; quite distinct to a standard stretched canvas.

 

38mm framed canvas

Adding a solid wooden float frame to our standard 38mm canvas creates a unique and original work of art. The thin frame sits approximately 5mm from the edge of the canvas helping create a floating border. Highly recommended for photography and images that make a real statement.

The canvas float frame is available in Black or White.

 

Canvas Substrates - 400gsm

A finely textured artist-grade cotton substrate which consistently reproduces image details with outstanding clarity and detail. Superior to many more expensive branded alternatives.

 

Canvas Finishes

A choice of edge profile.

    White Edge: Also called museum wrap.

    Black Edge: Black coloured sides.

    Image Wrap: Image wraps around the sides of the frame. Also called gallery wrap.

    Mirror Wrap: Image edge reflected on the sides. entire image appears on the front.

 

Canvas coatings

Preserve the integrity of your print.

All our canvas prints can be finished with a Matt or Gloss varnish coating.

Varnishes help to preserve the integrity of your canvas image, protecting against airborne dirt/dust, sun fade, abrasions and fingerprints.
