This is the livery we added to the Greymouth hospital paediatric ward. The themed laminated graphics are printed onto self adhesive vinyl then cut to shape using a digital cutter. Because of the design we were required to match the paint colours used on the walls and print the edges so the graphics seamlessly combine with the walls.
