TATTOOWALL™

1. How does Tattoowall™ work?

Tattoowall™ is a revolutionary and patented system of transferring colors to surfaces, which was created in Europe in 1994 for the purpose of restoring and recreating fresco effects, murals and artwork on walls or ceilings.  Tattoowall™ can be applied to walls, ceilings, drywalling, brickwork, concrete, painted walls etc.  It can be used on interiors as well as exteriors, and can be applied to smooth, heavily textured (it can take surface variations of up to ¼”), straight, irregular or curved surfaces.  Tattoowall is also extremely time efficient, cost effective, and easy to install and maintain.

2. Can I view an installation in order to help me better understand how the TattooWall™ process works?

The TattooWall™ video presentation, found at www.myarchitexture.com/tattoowall.html will give you a visual understanding of how the product works.  Also, a written step by step guide to the application of TattooWall™ can be found at www.myarchitexture.com/TattoowallApplicationMethod.pdf


APPLICATION:

3. Where can Tattoowall™ be used?

Tattoowall™ can be used on interior or exterior walls and ceilings. Tattoowall™ is ideal for use in areas such as homes, hotels, offices, shopping malls, sporting arenas, movie sets, theme parks, restaurants,  cafeterias, bars, clubs, schools, hospitals, waiting rooms, casinos, spas, museums, exhibitions, cruise ships, religious facilities, theatre backdrops, children’s rooms, retail stores, advertisements, conference centers, ballrooms, banquet halls and many more.

4. Can I use Tattoowall™ on floors, tiles, glass or furniture?

No, Tattoowall™ is not recommended for use on any of these surfaces.

5. Can I apply a Tattoowall™ or should I take a class to learn how?

Small Tattoowalls™ with no join lines can be applied without taking a course. If you are installing a large Tattoowall™, and especially if the Tattoowall™ is in more than 1 piece, it is HIGHLY discouraged to attempt the installation without the proper training. Architexture recommends that all installers take the Tattoowall™ Certified Applicators Course prior to attempting an installation. Architexture will not take responsibility for Tattowalls™ that are improperly installed.

6. Should I not wish to apply a Tattoowall™ myself, does Architexture have installers that can do it for me?

Yes, Architexture has a list of Certified Tattoowall Applicators on their website at http://www.myarchitexture.com/applicators.html. Each Applicator is an independent contractor and has participated in the 2 day training course. It is highly recommended that large Tattoowalls™ are applied by a Certified Applicator.

Architexture works very closely with Artists and Photographers in the following ways:
-Quarterly, artists and photographers works are selected for upload to our online digital library.  The artist/photographers select 10 of their best pieces for upload.  They also decide on a royalty fee that will charged each time that the image is selected for print by our clients.  This allows Architexture to provide variety to our clients while at the same time promoting artists work.
-Architexture, through Tattoowall™ and Urbantattoo, creates sample ranges for artists and photographers.  This means that their work is printed on an exciting new range of different materials, which they then present to their respective clients as new ways of purchasing their art work.
-Architexture regularly promotes artists, photographers and designers that are using Tattoowall in their projects by showcasing their work or projects in our newsletters, on our website and through social media.
-Architexture often contracts artists and photographers to create original pieces for clients, which can then be digitized and reproduced on various materials.
