At Vancouver on Canvas we now have an exiting new product for designers and crafters. It is called Removable Adhesive Fabric and it is unlike anything I have ever seen.
This material has the texture and durability of cloth, but has a self-adhesive backing like a sticker. It can be stuck on most surfaces, and even better, can be removed and re-positioned without loosing it's stickiness. It is also water resistant and very flexible, so it can be used to wrap around corners.
Of course, the best thing about this material is that it is receptive to the Giclee process. It can be run though our fine art printers, so we can print it with any image you can imagine in beautiful full colour.
One obvious idea for this material that would be of interest to people designing beautiful interiors is that they could be used to create wall decorations similar to vinyl cuts. It could be a simple and original way to ad interest to many surfaces. One creative customer is planning printing some self-adhesive images and mounting them on old wake-boards for an original display idea.
Businesses could also make good use of this easy advertising solution. We have already had an order a full fridge door sticker, with a beautiful full colour image related to the organization’s philosophy. The great thing about this material is that it can be used to turn any surface into an opportunity for delivering a message.
There are also many smaller projects that could be done with this material. It could be:
---Placed on the front of a light fixture or lamp shade for a personalized back lit image.
---Made into stickers to hand out in gift bags at events.
---Used for decorations on computers and personal electronics.
But my favourite idea comes from my own love of bookbinding. With this material it would be easy to design and create custom cloth book covers – think the old fashioned Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys books, but in cloth! With a little measuring and cropping, and some text, any journal, note book, old, beloved hardback, or hand-bound book project can have custom designed cover art! No gluing required! I for one can't wait to try this, and I am exited to see
