Creating a Personalized Dancefloor for a Wedding

Canadian printing and lamination solutions provider Lamin-8 used Drytac SpotOn Floor 200 monomeric PVC film to create a unique and personalized dancefloor for a customer’s wedding.

Operating out of Toronto since 1986, Lamin-8 delivers printing, mounting, and finishing services to clients across a whole host of sectors. Customers include commercial printers, graphic designers, architects, schools and students, professional photographers, galleries, artists, and commercial graphics providers.

Lamin-8 also works with a range of private clients, offering high quality print and finishing across all manner of applications. The company recently teamed up with Drytac to complete one such project: a bespoke dancefloor for a wedding reception.

The application measured 20-by-20-feet and featured a black and white design, complete with the first initials of the bride and groom, along with their now-family name, the Archers. Other aspects of the design included a lined border around the edge of the dancefloor and a large graphic in the center.

Core challenges for Lamin-8 included ensuring the printed piece would not be damaged by people dancing on top of the application during the reception. In addition, Lamin-8 had to consider issues such as potential slip risks that the graphic may pose.

For this reason, Lamin-8 chose to work with Drytac SpotOn Floor 200. This monomeric PVC film is designed for use in short-term, indoor floor graphics without the need for lamination. The film also boasts several slip rating certifications, making it ideal for use in spaces with heavy footfall.

“For this project, we chose to work with SpotOn Floor 200 as we know that it is great for short term applications,” said Lamin-8 President Michael Isaacs, noting his company has used Drytac products for more than twenty years. “We had used this product before in an airport and were well aware of its qualities.”

Lamin-8 printed all graphics for the application in house using its HP Scitex FB500 flatbed printer and installed the piece on site for the customer.

“Our client was taken aback with the quality and performance of the product,” Michael said. “Another key feature was the removal; this was a quick process that required little effort and left no adhesive behind on the floor.”
