interior wall muralEveryone loves a good before and after office makeover. It lifts the spirits of all who walk into your business. But in times like these when we continue to face a recession, making office enhancements can be quite a challenge when budgets are tight. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do it. Rather than spending a fortune on furniture upgrades and fancy paintwork, it’s simple to give your office a facelift with some budget friendly options.


Vinyl Wall Murals

After a few years, painted walls can easily get scuffed, marked and dirty. Colors can begin to fade. But a fresh coat of paint throughout your business can be pricey (for example, the national average just to paint one room of a home is $1,805!). An easy fix is applying a vinyl wall mural. You can easily transform the look of a space. As long as all debris is removed from the wall, a vinyl mural can be placed anywhere.

What’s even better is since these are designed digitally, the image possibilities are endless. You can feature your brand by placing a logo or business tagline. You can lay graphic images of your work or local area views and photographs to liven up a bare wall. Or, if you’re just looking to make your space more attractive, we can help you create a digital wallpaper.

Installation also won’t disrupt business operations. When you have a space repainted, furniture needs to be covered, there’s drying time to consider and touch-ups to be made, plus there are paint fumes to contend with. But with wall murals, installation is quick and we are happy to come in after hours if you prefer.


Window Treatments

Another area to consider utilizing in order to bring a fresh look to your business are your glass and window spaces. Whether it’s a glass storefront or office windows and doors inside your company, decorating them is easy and a great way to make a space look like new.

If you’re looking to liven up the inside of your office, etched glass vinyl graphics are a great choice. They’re affordable, plus they can provide privacy if needed, or just add some décor. There is a large selection of textures and colors we can put together to make it pop!

For exterior glass decorations, using vinyl films will ensure the application lasts and stands out to all who pass. We can do simple lettering if you’re just looking to convey a message or special offer, or we can create a full-color window display to really showcase your brand. Plus installation is a snap and they’re reusable!

We at Epic Signs & Graphics are happy to work with your budget to give your business the update it deserves!

How Much Does a Wall Mural Cost?

Posted by John Grigoli

Nov 6, 2018 8:30:00 AM

 If I told you that many businesses forego updating their interior signage because they assume it’s not in their budget, would you believe me? Instead of assuming it’s not in your budget, we’re going to talk about the costs of interior signage, specifically wall murals. So, how much does a wall mural cost to design and install in your business? Read on to find out.

 Cleveland, Oh Wall Mural

Size matters

If you want a quick, down and dirty gauge for how much a wall mural will cost you, you need to first measure the square footage of the area you wish to be covered. Mural size is usually done as a per square foot price, but other factors can affect the pricing as well.

Type and texture

The type of wall your mural will go on -- drywall, brick, cement -- each requires different materials and application methods; these factors will also affect the pricing. In addition to the wall type, the texture of the wall a mural is going onto will determine what materials are used and the application method -- have you ever tried to adhere something to stucco?


Finally, the graphics involved in your mural will obviously affect the overall cost; for example, using full-color printing versus standard die-cut color pieces of vinyl. If you’re supplying the image to be reproduced, the amount of work required to secure the best image when enlarging is also a factor in the pricing process. Worried about blowing your budget? We will provide information about the image quality before quoting and reproducing.

Vinyl Wall Lettering Cleveland, Oh 

If you don’t have a design on-hand or in mind, we have a design team ready to assist you. Not sure where to begin? Let us know why you’re considering installing a mural, and what your vision is for decorating a wall. Providing logos and information about your business and mission helps our designers work to create a unique design for your organization. Not sure if a design team is in your budget? We charge an hourly rate for design services, and our designs typically cost between $150 and up.

How long will it take?

We get it. No one wants their business or office space disrupted for extended periods of time. From the point of approval, and depending on the size of your mural, it can take from one day to one week to print and trim the design. The installation also varies according to size and can take anywhere from half a day to three days, if it’s a large or complex design. From start to finish, most projects take two to three weeks to produce after approval.

How much will it cost to install?

Installation is much like the design aspect and is charged by an hourly rate, dependent upon whether one or two people are needed for the job. The height of your mural and the type of surface of your wall are factors that will affect installation. You can expect to pay anywhere from $300 and up to install your mural, depending upon the size of the mural, the type, and texture of the wall, and the complexity of the design.

But what about a small budget?

We have nice wall mural material, both smooth and textured, that looks great on walls at an affordable price; sometimes we can do partial walls very effectively. Call us for advice on shopping for quality images that will look great when enlarged for a small space, that way you can provide us with design materials directly without needed to use our design team.

We have an unlimited budget, what do you recommend?

Use a very high-quality photo from a skilled photographer; the higher the resolution, the better the print. For a large mural, image resolution is critical. We can help with proofing and testing your image on actual materials. Consider adding dimensional lettering for a greater effect. Most importantly use a sign studio -- like us -- that is willing to go the extra mile to get the best results!

Wall and window graphics in Cleveland are becoming
all the rage. This is because just about any image and text can be printed on top quality vinyl in vibrant, sharp colors using state of the art wide format digital printers. We constantly field questions about how to get a wall mural done or how to have graphics applied to windows. So, to help with guidance, we put together this guide to help answer your questions.

What Are Wall and Window Graphics?

Each of these products allow a business or organization to communicate to potential customers who they are and what they provide. 

Can the Same Vinyl Graphic Be Used More than Once?

For the most part, they cannot. This is because after having been peeled off their surface, they will not snap back to full elasticity. However, it is much less expensive for us to make a graphic the second time, since we will have the design already on file and will just need to print and install it.

What About Removal?

As a way to leave the surface totally clean, window cleaner or water and soap may be used in instances that marks do get left behind. Walls may have marks left that would require light sanding and a coat of paint.

What's the Installation Process?

With a cleaning agent, like rubbing alcohol, the surface where the graphics will be going is cleaned. The vinyl is then placed into position for approval and to ensure a good fit. Then, after removing the backing to the vinyl, it is placed on the window or wall with a squeegee to push out air bubbles. This is done carefully to prevent wrinkles. Some times a liquid can be applied first to help with this process, particularly with vinyl frost used on windows. The liquid will allow the vinyl to repositioned if needed but it will take time to dry.
