We’ve just supplied and installed a new Fabric Light Box for Dublin clients – Owen O’Reilly Property Consultants, at Grand Canal Dock.
They were fitting out a new office, and wanted a ‘wow’ piece for one of their walls. They contacted us to see what we could deliver, and they were delighted with the results.
There were various steps to consider along the way:
Choosing the correct type of Fabric Light Box
Choosing the best Fabric Light Box size
Choosing the best Fabric Light Box size is always an important step. Here, we first considered a size of 1.8m high by 1.4m wide. This suited the size and proportions of the wall on which we would install the Fabric Light Box.
We decided instead on a size of 1.8m high x 1.2m wide, as we needed to work with freely available stock images. This alternate size is in keeping with the common 3:2 proportions of available photos.
Using this 3:2 size proportion will allow for easier selection of images to be used in the future on Fabric Light Box in this Dublin location, without having to crop out parts of the image.
Choosing a suitable image
The clients wanted to use an image relevant to their location. They provided a high-quality image, of sufficient resolution to achieve an excellent result. We got this image of ‘Grand Canal Dock Night’ in a resolution of 7360 x 4912 pixels, which provided a printed fabric graphic of 1.8m x 1.2m at a resolution of 104 dpi.
Ideally, we need to print an image on fabric 150 dpi. However, for larger image sizes, this can be difficult to achieve, as the image needs to be created specifically for this purpose. We typically do this by ‘stitching’ together a number of overlapping high resolution images.
While we can achieve an acceptable result at 70 to 80 dpi, detail in the viewed image will be much sharper if we can print at 150 dpi.
Changing out other Fabric Light Box Dublin images
As with all our Fabric Light Boxes, we provided the printed fabric here with a sewn-on silicone strip. This means it will be easy to change it out for other Fabric Light Box Dublin images in future.
Once we decided the location and precise position on the wall, the client’s electrician installed a switched electrical flylead. He concealed this in the wall’s cavity and entering the lightbox , directly behind the lightbox. This means that no cable is visible.
When manufacturing the lightbox, we ensured that the power entry point on the back of the lightbox matched up with the location of the cable exiting the wall.
The power requirement for this lightbox is 188 Watts.
