    Hi chaps, i need to put a large logo onto an internal wall, its painted with a nice finish. Normally i would tackle this with some HT vinyl but how would a polymeric hold up? I was always go HT normally but i dont have any in stock and this is a freebie for my snooker club. Basically im being a cheapskate

    If sticks to the wall, I don’t see why not.

    But per your tittle, as soon as you say concrete…I say HT all the way

    the issue you will have with stone walls, even if polished smooth is the dry surface. which will mean you need some sort of bonding agent. no big deal and cheap to source, easy to apply. but be careful as many have a sheen or satin finish whereas the concrete wall may have a matt finish and will stand out like a sore thumb if you only bond an area or large section of the wall.

    I am sure spandex now sell high tack multi-surface vinyl in solid colours for cutting graphics as well as digital print vinyl in short part-rolls. might be worth a try if just a small job.
    otherwise prep the wall and install the graphic and just advise the customer of the possible outcome.
    once fitted I would be sure to heat and roller with a firm sponge roller to promote better adhesion. particularly if there is any sort of texture to the wall.
