#ProjectSpreadHope is looking for high visibility locations to install our prints. Please read the following frequently asked questions prior to dropping us a note about your proposed project. We look forward to hearing from you.
1. Define “high visibility?
A high-traffic outdoor or indoor location. EITHER VEHICLES OR PEDESTRIANS
2. How much does it cost?
#ProjectSpreadHope is a not-for-profit art project. Print installations are free.
3. Can I contribute?
We appreciate donations to our print and supplies fund. Venmo @koko-bayer if you can help or buy an item from the shop (all profits go to support #projectspreadhope)
4. How big are they?
Standard sizes are “2x2, “3x3, “6x6, “9x9, and “12x12 (custom sizes by request).
5. How do you put them up?
We use lightweight bond paper and a plant-based, biodegradable paste. Installations are temporary. They can be installed up to 12 feet from the ground. Higher locations require you to provide a lift.
6. Do They leave a mark?
On non-porous surfaces, they shouldn’t leave a residue if properly removed. On porous surfaces, there may be a slight residue of the paste which will wash away eventually. Prints will remove loose paint. We will inspect the surface prior to the installation and assess the surface with you. ProjectSpreadHope and our team from any liability for damage to your property from the installation or prints.
7. How long do they last?
Installations are temporary and biodegradable. Outdoor longevity depends on the orientation of the piece and the weather. Full sun starts to burn the color out of prints after a few months and extreme weather can damage them quickly. Indoor installations last indefinitely (as long as they stay dry).
8. What surfaces work best?
Prints can be installed on a variety of surfaces including brick, wood, stucco, and metal. the texture, stability and cleanliness of the surface can negatively impact adhesion. most painted surfaces work. The exception are surfaces that have a "graffiti-resistant" coating or paint. most newer metal garage doors HAVE THIS COATING. our water-based paste doesn't work on these.
9. CAN YOU PUT ONE ON MY GARAGE DOOR
MAYBE. THEY ARE PROBLEMATIC. most newer DOORS HAVE A graffiti-resistant coating or paint THAT DOESNT WORK WITH OUR PASTE. SECOND, MOST GARAGE DOORS HAVE MULTIPLE PANELS THAT SPLIT WHEN THE DOOR OPENS WHICH MAKES FOR A MORE COMPLICATED INSTALL. if you have a high visibility GARAGE DOOR ON A MAIN STREET OR IN A HIGH FOOT TRAFFIC AREA, FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW AND WELL COME CHECK IT OUT.
10. How do you take them down?
They can be easily removed by soaking the surface with water and waiting 10 minutes. Repeat, then peel it off in one piece and rinse the wall with water.
11. Can I get a permanent one?
Yes, “permanent” installations using a waterproof and UV resistant paste can be done by special arrangement These last 3-5 years without maintenance.
12. Do you maintain them?
We maintain all installations to the best of our abilities. Please let us know when your piece needs repair
13. Can I buy one for my house?
INDOOR QUALITY prints ARE IN THE SHOP.
14. Which prints do you have available?
