zazzle.com/large format, custom printed Tyvek

Postby Cadix » April 23rd, 2018, 4:40 pm

I haven't ordered yet, but I noticed https://www.zazzle.com/wrappingpaper has an option for Tyvek (in addition to regular paper) in up to 30"x6' rolls with completely custom color/image/text print of your choice (tiled at 30"x36"). I'm thinking of trying some outdoor butterflies using a repeated circular gradient pattern. Not sure if the printed image will hold up to the sun/rain/etc (I'm guessing not), but might be worth trying. Anyway, thought it might be of interest to others too (YMMV) :-)

I've heard a lot of good things about Tyvek, but one thing's for sure, that stuff is expensive. :shock:

I haven't ordered any yet. Pretty broke at the moment :-) I'll post here when I do though!

This might interest you: http://mioculture.com/shop/decor/loop-by-the-yard

Had you already seen it? What I find interesting is that both sides are colored. Aside from that, I was assured that the inks used are waterproof.

Let me know what you think.

That does look cool. I didn't see size information. Do you know how big the sheets are?

They sell as many yards as you need. The width of the roll is 44 in (111.76 cm).
