Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries recently opened their location in Costa Mesa Ca. The sign company was having problem with finding an installer for the decals on the interior of the store. They did some searching and was referred to Le Tourneau Painting. We quickly met them on location and wrote up a proposal, which was accepted on the spot and the next day we started the install. The installation of the vinyl decal below the counter went on without any problems.... the larger signs on the sides of the restaurant were an entirely different story. The walls already had a wall covering on it that was painted over with the colors of Boardwalk Fresh Burgers and Fries had a texture on it that consisted of small bumps that were roughly a mm in diameter with spaces between them of about 3 mm. This posed a problem for the vinyl decals adhesion to the wall. The decals were only sticking on the tops of those bumps and were not remaining flat on the wall. I quickly picked up the phone to call my sister in Canada who owns a print company for advise. She was unable to help because we were unable of the exact materials we were using.
To make a long story short, the manufacturer advised me to heat up the material which would slightly shrink the vinyl and allow it to stick. From there the install went like clockwork.
Once the decals were up and looking great, they asked me to install the signs on the walls, which is not really my thing. Usually I do not do work unrelated to the painting and wallpapering business, but this time we hung them for them.
You will have to go check out their menu, I know I will!
