Magnetic Wall Map – Case study
Traditionally the only map printing we were involved with was for folded maps such as the orienteering maps, road maps, cycling maps, etc… However, in recent years, our clients have asked us to do much more in regard to map printing, for use in office environments including magnetic wall maps for example.
Magnetic Wall Map Printing
There are lots of uses for a custom printed magnetic wall in commercial environments or maybe even at home? On one particular occasion we were contacted by Britannia Maritime Security as they needed a 2m x 3m wall to show a map of the waters they patrol. They wanted to be able to use dry wipe markers on the map so they could mark certain ships etc moving around. Through further discussion, we also came up with the idea of integrating magnets to use as markers. This would make it even easier for the client to show the position and movements of important ships on their office wall map. (They track the movements of weapons so it’s important the whole office has an easy to see references for what is going where).
Here is a video showing some of the production, from artwork to printing and completion.
The key parts of the production were:
- Creating the artwork
- Splitting the artwork into panels
- The job had to be printed onto poster paper.
- The poster paper then mounted to steel ferrous paper (This has a thin steel core like foil, so that the magnets stick to it)
- The poster was then gloss laminated to enable the dry wipe marker feature
- Mounted to 5mm Foamex (rigid PVC) boards,
- Trimmed flush and packed carefully for transport.
We’ve received the magnetic wall map, and it’s already up on the wall. It looks fantastic! Thanks so much to you and your company for all your help.
