Type 1: Graphics Display Paper. This is a high resolution, water-resistant, 36lbs paper commonly used for display posters in retail and commercial establishments. Good for short term or temporary installations. Best installed with double-sided tape or Speedball Art brand Paper Cement. Liquid or spray adhesives may cause bubbles or wrinkling. Please see our section on Installation Tips & Techniques.

Type 2: Polypropylene Film. A waterproof, high resolution,  photo-quality matte-finished film typically used in high-end graphics displays and advertising at upscale retail stores and trade show booth displays. This is for long term permanent installation indoors. Best installed with a vinyl compatible wallpaper paste. Spray adhesives may cause bubbling if directions are not followed EXACTLY as the manufacture instructs. Please see our section on Installation Tips & Techniques.
