Pennsylvania-based signage printer Graphik Masters has used Drytac media to produce floor-to-ceiling graphics for the brand new Cartoon Network Hotel.

The company has decorated 155 hotel rooms, four master suites, plus retail, dining and lobby areas.

Animation fans can now eat, sleep, play and swim surrounded by their favorite characters from programmes including Adventure Time, The Powerpuff Girls, Steven Universe and Johnny Bravo in the hotel in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

To create the graphics, Graphik Masters chose Drytac ReTac Smooth 150 on the recommendation of Carew Alley, owner of supplier Digital Color Ink. A 6mm white polymeric printable PVC film, ReTac Smooth 150 features ReTac ultra-removable adhesive technology that maintains its adhesive strength over time. This allows graphics to be repositioned and removed without damaging or leaving residue on the surface underneath.

‘From among the samples Digital Color Ink provided, both Graphik Masters and our clients agreed that ReTac 150 Smooth would be best for ease of installation along with its smooth, matte appearance,’ said Craig Swartz, co-owner of Graphik Masters. ‘In addition, the media is phthalate-free and ultra-removable which we hold as commendable characteristics of the media.

‘The wall graphics, printed as panels, needed to be seamed. We are pleased with the low visibility of seams where the panels overlap. We have heard many positive comments from Cartoon Network regarding the high-quality presentation and feel.’
