Landor Phototex has made an inspirational mark throughout the sign and display, Point of sale, Interiors, Photo, art and Events market for the past 10 years. In 2010 it made its first television appearance on the Gadget show, where Tommy Walsh and Suzi Peri competed decorating a wall by applying a traditional wall paper versus Landor Phototex. The result : Phototex was the clear winner!
Landor Phototex has inspired and enhanced many homes, offices, Retail and public venues as well as museums, galleries and sometimes the most unusual places inside and outside.
For many it has solved many visual design, install problems or challenges. For others it has covered or transformed work, home, leisure and public venues in ways that just simply were not possible before. Added branding, added transformation, added effect and added inspiration as well as added choice of surface imaging has gone to depths not so easy a feat until Landor Phototex was created. One of the greatest challenges today is the versatility, durability, and stability of printed images and the transformation of a wall, or surface without the potential damage when that space needs to be changed.
The magic of Landor Phototex presents itself not only in its naturally woven polyester fabric and its ink receptivity and compatibility with almost all ink technologies, but even more particularly in the adhesive itself. Even now there are no known adhesives, let alone a fabric adhesive that can attach to a wall and yet be repositioned up to 200 times, remain stable throughout its life, be it short term or long term without a change in the adhesive. Usually, after a very short time after adhering, a film or paper adhesive hardens and consequently causes damage either from adhesive residue or surface damage, rendering the need for repair, or renewal of walls before they can be re-used. This extra cost, disruption and bottleneck are not an issue with Landor Phototex.
Today Landor Phototex continues to retain its recognised and proud position as the single most successful selling adhesive printable fabric in the world.
It all started whilst at University for this passionate and ambitious South Korean manufacturer, wanting to create a printable fabric. His hard work and determination were soon rewarded and made Landor Phototex possible, and a pleasurable solution to many.
What we did not know was that not only would the creative-minded, such as artists, photographers and interior designers grasp on this novel and aesthetic substrate but the sign and display, retail, advertising and promotional markets would want it as much and more, as it became clear that time, labour, skill, and effort would be saved in the list of many common risks and events that are commonplace when applying adhesive substrates in most common interiors and surfaces.
