March 29, 2007 The digital tools available to designers, architects and home decorators continue to grow by the day. Nowadays you can apply digital images to carpet, tiles, curtains, wall surfaces and even complex shapes such as cars, but until now, you couldn’t render a digital image onto brick. Digital printing pioneers VgL have developed a new textured wall film that is heat applied directly to brick work (internal, external, painted or unpainted) and takes on the surface texture of the surface its applied to.
UK-based Surface View was recently launched by VgL with a view to becoming the go-to-guys for the use of digital printing for interior decorating.
