Can I Supply my Own Image to be Printed?

Yes you can. Remember that a high resolution image will be required, to ensure a good quality printed finish. Low resolution images pixelate when they are blown up, resulting in a loss of clarity. As a rule of thumb a jpeg image should be at least 1.5mb to 3mb in size. A simple test is to blow the image up to 400% on screen and see if it distorts. See our artwork preparation guide for more info. On confirmation of your order an artwork proof will be provided for approval before the order goes into production.

Does Genesis Acoustics supply High Resolution Images for Printing?

Yes we do. You can browse from our large online library at Be sure to record the reference numbers of the images you want to purchase, then e-mail these numbers to us, to proceed with the quote/ order process.

Can my Fabric be Changed at a Future Date?

Yes, the fabric can easily be changed without any screws or staples. This is useful in the event of a fresh look being required or if repair to accidental damage is needed.

Can Feature Wall be Framed?

Yes. Depending on the thickness used, an appropriate wooden or polystyrene moulding can be selected & installed by any reputable carpenter.


Who can Install Feature Wall?
