Competent & Dependable

We have many years experience assisting general contractors, architects, studio designers, and homeowners. Submit a Request for Quotation or shoot an email. Get on the path toward your public art goal. And, murals are not your only choice. Floor tiles for high traffic areas (indoor and outdoor) can be digitally printed with artwork or photos. These extremely durable decorated floor tiles are suitable for sidewalks and rail station platforms. High durability means very low maintenance for these exterior grade graphic tiles.

Project Planning for Outdoor Tile Murals

Graphic image tile projects usually begin with artwork or a design idea for an approximate size area. Once the artwork and size are nearly determined, Custom Tiles can prepare a price estimate. We can help with budgeting by offering options. Different size tiles and printing/production methods can provide the best value. Ready to discuss your specific needs? (submit RFQ).
Allow us to evaluate the image quality at full scale. Our photo-editing services may be utilized to enhance the final results (upload large image files for tile murals here).
Several weeks turn around time is required for careful production and quality inspection. Images are archived for swift reproduction in case any tiles are damaged during installation. A picture of the mosaic tile design will be provided with a numbered grid for tile location. Convenient packaging will make tile installation easier and error-free.

Tile is Better for Outdoor Graphic Art Murals

Using kiln-fired custom printed tiles for outdoor art murals can indeed provide an alternative and potentially more durable option compared to traditional paint. The high fired tiles offer several advantages for outdoor installations, including increased fade resistance and longevity. Here’s why they can be a good choice:
1. Durability: Kiln-fired printed tiles are made from ceramic or porcelain, which are highly durable materials. They are designed to withstand outdoor conditions, including UV exposure, temperature fluctuations, moisture, and environmental factors that can degrade traditional paints.
2. Fade Resistance: Custom printed tiles can be manufactured with high-quality, fade-resistant pigments that are specifically formulated for outdoor use. These pigments do not fade or discolor over time, ensuring that the artwork maintains its vibrancy for an extended period.
3. Weather Resistance: Kiln-fired tiles have inherent weather resistance properties, making them less susceptible to the effects of rain, wind, snow, and sunlight. They can withstand the elements without significant degradation or damage, preserving the integrity of the artwork.
4. Low Maintenance: Unlike paint, our outdoor tiles require minimal maintenance. They are easy to clean with mild detergents and water, and their surfaces can be wiped or rinsed without worrying about fading or peeling.
5. Customization: Custom tiles offer the advantage of precise and detailed artwork reproduction. The printing process allows for intricate designs, complex patterns, and accurate color representation, providing the artist with greater creative control and the ability to showcase their vision with clarity.
It’s important to consider a few factors before opting for kiln-fired tiles:
1. Cost: Compared to paint, custom art tiles have a higher initial cost, with a payback of much longer durability and low maintenance. The cost varies depending on the size and the number of tiles required.
2. Installation: Proper installation of the tiles is important to ensure their long-term stability. It may require professional expertise, especially for large installations, to ensure proper adhesion and alignment.

Graffiti removal

Use an all purpose remover, available at a local hardware or home improvement center. Saturate the graffiti as soon as possible, as it will become more difficult to remove over time. Do not let the remover dry – allow it to soak in to soften the graffiti. For several layers of paint, repeated applications may be required. Strong solvents will not harm the custom printed outdoor tiles. Do not use abrasives.
