Don’t you wish changing up the looks of your walls can be as easy as changing out of your clothes? The reality isn’t far from your dreams. Wanna know how you can change the design or your wall, or in fact any surface in your home, without having to tear down wallpapers or decals?
Now you can print any artwork or photographs you like, make it part of your wall, and change it up anytime you wish. No dismantling, no tearing, no repainting! Have I got you interested yet?

The magnetic solution
The secret lies in simple science. The printed wall system makes use of the properties of magnets and steel to install a versatile design for any surface.
For the first layer, a 0.85mm magnet-based sheet is glued onto literally any flat surface you wish to have your designs on – your painted walls, doors, cabinets, anything you can think of. This magnet base will be where your customisable designs can be mounted on.

Your designs will then be printed on a steel-based sheet as thin as 0.2 to 0.38mm to be mounted onto the base. The best part is that it’s totally customisable! You may provide us a high-definition photograph to be printed or have our creative graphic designers come up with something you’d love!

Tired of that design? Roll it up and lay a new printed design! No residue, no damage and no wastage – The prints are reusable! Nowhere to keep that old design? Just overlay your new design on top of the existing one. The magnetic base can hold up to 3 layers of prints, so you can roll them off and reinstall them as you please.
Make use of existing metallic surface
If you stay in an HDB flat, the bomb shelter door would be a familiar sight to you and we all know it’s something that everyone tries to conceal. Why not embrace and beautify it with a mural or your favourite photograph?
If you have a metallic surface, your customised magnet-coated mural can be mounted directly onto it! Again, it’s removable without residue and reusable, how eco-friendly is that? You can also have it in all shapes and cut-outs for the door handle or other fixtures! There, your unattractive door just had a 180-degree transformation!
Display your creativity
If you’d rather be able to create a new artwork on your walls as and when you like, fret not, we have a solution for that too! Why not create a chalkboard or whiteboard wall? Notice that we didn’t say blackboard, because there is a total of THREE colours from the chalkboard to choose from! Depending on your preference and colours of our existing walls, you can have black, grey or even pink wall that you can write on! Best part is, they are erasable so put your worries aside and draw to your heart’s content! Oh, and did I mention it’s magnetic? You can even place decorative magnets or light shelves on your walls directly!
Chalkboard wall with magnetic photo frames and shelves – no nails and drilling needed!
Hold on! There are already existing whiteboard and chalkboard paints available in the market, so what’s so special about this new product, you may ask? Those who have experience with whiteboard paint might realise that it gets increasing harder to erase the markings, but with this 0.5mm thick magnetic whiteboard or chalkboard sheet, your writings can be easily erased even after prolonged usage, just like a regular whiteboard or chalkboard. Each sheet runs a maximum of 2.5m but even if your walls are longer than that, the joints are nearly seamless!
Best of THREE worlds
If a plain chalkboard or whiteboard bores you and you want to be able to write on your walls as well, why not have the best of not both but three worlds? Opt for a 3-layer system that makes up a magnetic writable wall mural! You can have a background design able to hold up magnets and even write on! Perfect!
While it is possible to roll out your new printed wall murals by yourself, we strongly advise against it. It takes skill for the sheet to be laid smoothly on the base, so it would be best to get the specialist to do it for you, especially for large areas.
