Product Suggestions

  • Do not use the Opaque versions on glass, metal and vinyl – please use the original versions.
  • Do not cut the overlap when using UV inks and “Opaque” Phototex as you may see a white line from the cutting. Opaque is a block-out intended to not have to overlap mid-cut and butt the overlap.
  • Do not use rubbing Alcohol to clean walls when using Opaque as there is a chance it can react to the opaque coating (bubble) – just use warm damp rag to clear dust.
  • Use a plastic or cloth squeegee when installing the Opaque versions as hands may leave bubbles, especially on texture surfaces.
  • Always allow 30 days on a freshly painted wall before installing (paint out-gasses).

FAQs & Tips

We recommend our clear coats or liquid lamination coatings when you need extended life, or protection of your prints especially if outside, or in heavy traffic areas. It is always best to liquid laminate while Phototex is still on the liner, however if you do need to liquid laminate after installation it is advised to be very careful not to liquid laminate to the edges as the liquid can seep around the edges and attach to the adhesive. We do not usually recommend film laminates but some thinner, cold laminates can work on flat surfaces.
